We are currently preparing for our Christmas Cantata to be presented on December 18th.  We rehearse every Thursday at 6:30 PM in the choir room behind the Sanctuary.  Help us to continue to sing His praises and make a joyful noise.

“Hailey is one of the children that your gifts support.  She came to us at the beginning of the year from an abusive home.  Because of the dysfunctionality of that home, Hailey had to first work on basic social skills like having a conversation, showing empathy for others, and using appropriate voice tone.  Once she had done that, our team noticed that she really began to fit in and make friends after just a few short weeks.  In fact, she recently participated in our annual talent show, performing a number with the other girls in her cottage.  While Hailey’s real wish is to be adopted and find her forever home, she is doing well at the Children’s Home and is actually looking forward to the new school year.”

“Hailey’s success would not exist without your generous gifts.  Your continued support provides our children with the therapy, education, clothing, and other necessities for a happy and healthy life.”

Our next opportunity for sharing with our Children’s Home will be November 20th. The offering collected will be sent to be used for Christmas Gift Cards for the children.
