Prayer Missions 


PRAYER MISSION DECEMBER

  The Salvation Army Red Kettles have been an American tradition since 1891, helping raise financial support for critical Salvation Army programs and services year round.  This campaign allows you to host your own Red Kettle - online.  Over the years, the Red Kettle Campaign has grown into one of the most recognizable and important charitable campaigns in the United States – providing toys for kids, coats for the homeless, food for the hungry and countless social service programs year-round. You become a vital part of our Christmas efforts when you help those in need by hosting an Online Red Kettle and filling it with donations from family, friends and colleagues.

  BLANKET FUND – We collected $395 for the Blanket Fund offering.

Where charity stands watching

the dark night wakes— the glory breaks,

Christmas comes once more.

 Thank you for Keeping the Nursery
  By Lois Turley

Mama left me in the church nursery.
She said, ”You can stay here and play.”
I was so very afraid, but you comforted me.
And mama was saved that
day.

At least once a month in the nursery,
You served God by caring for me
so mama could attend Church and learn to make
our home everything it should be.

There were those who said, “I’m too busy,”
Or, “I don’t want to miss church today.

I’m too young, I’m too old, I’ve done my part.
The nursery? Please, don’t ask me to stay.”

But you said, “No, I’m not too busy.
I’m just the right age I know.
I could never do enough for the King that I serve.
When you need me in the nursery, I’ll go.”

My life might have been so different
If you had not answered God’s plea,
for workers to serve where the need is so great,
to care for little people like me.

Thank you for keeping the nursery.   
Mama taught me to follow Christ, too.
Many people had a part, but the most special one
To me will always be you.
