These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.

Impress them on your children.

Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

~Deuteronomy 6:6-7


Isaiah 53: 9-12.

It’s getting close to the time when the truck will be in Kentwood to pick-up the food we are donating to the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home. This is our only opportunity to donate food this year.

You can check the church bulletin or call the church office to get a list of ten of the most needed items. The items you purchase can be left in the church office until pick-up. You need to have your purchases ready for pick-up on the 18th so they can be picked up early on the 19th.

Thank-you for showing your love for the children by purchasing and donating these items. You are appreciated.
