BENEFIT FOR JAGGER’S FAMILY—

Seeking God
Saturday, March 9th,
In HIS KIDS the children have been challenged to learn a
verse every week. In January each person involved with
HIS KIDS was given a book called The Joshua Code
which gives a wonderful devotion on verses the author
felt are very important for everyone to learn. So the leaders read for their own edification and help the kids understand the verse that they are learning for that week. Then
every 5th week we have a revue night for the kids to say
the verses to their shepherds. We were well pleased with
the results of the first month.
The revue nights are coupled with a movie and celebrating of birthdays. Each time we do this we need about 3
dozen cupcakes. We would love to have someone to volunteer to provide decorated cupcakes (doesn't have to be
fancy) for March 27.
Also remember that a wonderful way that you can serve
the Lord is to help provide a simple supper for the children -- pair up with a friend if you wish. Sign up on the
list and have fun.
