Prayer Mission - November 

The New Life Assembly of God Food Pantry serves between 600 to 700 people every month, which is approximately 120 families, giving them enough food for 9 meals.  They also give a loving ear to listen to problems and broken hearts.  They pass out information on accessing social services: SNAP (food stamps), HEAP, Community Action, etc.  They are open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-3:00 p.m.  They can always use extra volunteers; if interested, talk to Linda in our church office.

Ni hao!!

Have I ever told you how much I love relationships? (Seems pretty fitting after just receiving an email about my engagement, huh?)  ;-) No, but really! Over the past couple of years, G0d has stirred up a desire in me to teach people how to have healthy, life-giving, fun and G0d honoring relationships. 

Not only did G0d give me an incredible guy to marry (and I mean INCREDIBLE!), He has also already been giving me opportunities to teach others

 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

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.
