Karen Price is leading a Bible study at the church that will extend until August 20 on Monday evenings at 6:00. Light supper is furnished. It is a unique concept. Warning, there will be homework, but it is worth it. Come see what it’s all about.
Karen’s project, “Color the World With Happines”‘ for the kids in our feeding program has far exceeded the goal of 1500 items. We ended up with 4,104! In addition, there were people who donated money to help support the feeding program. That total was $516. The project was shared with folks outside our church, and we were blessed by their generosity as well as that of our own people. Karen is preparing to put the items in suitcases so a person going to Nairobi can take the items to the children. Our thanks to all who contributed.
