Thanks for the support for David’s family as we buried his sister and her son-in-law yesterday. God gave us plenty of sunshine just when we needed it. We also enjoyed great family fellowship as we ate and visited together after the service.
I’m looking forward to having a gathering of “Helping Hands” Saturday to work on various projects for our “Shoeboxes”. There will be something for everyone, male and female, youth and older folks. We will meet in the fellowship hall from 9-12 on the 24th. Bring a finger food to share.

Thank-you to all who donated so “shoeboxes” can be packed.
I also received a message from Wanda Smith about a donation from one of the men’s classes. Wanda orders online for some classes and has the items sent directly to the church. We are looking forward to receiving glue sticks and AAA batteries for flashlights soon.
Thanks to all who contribute!

He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field.
It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
