Minister of Education's
Corner...
Bible Study is Vital
Do you read your Bible every day? Do you study
it? If the answer is no to either of these questions,
you might be in trouble. We can’t live right if we don’t
know what right is. God’s Word teaches us how to
live right and honor Him with our living. Without His
daily influence in our lives, our impact as Christians
is limited and our witness is impaired. Love His
Word! See you in Sunday School.

Why Give to the Lottie Moon
Christmas Offering
Because you give, our missionaries are
able to reach 1.7 million people with the gospel in one year. That is a lot but we need more
missionaries to reach more people. Your gifts
to the Lottie Moon Offering will help send more
missionaries. Please give generously.
