Into the New Year

After School Club is going strong again, and the kids are piling in to stay warm, play games, learn memory verses, hear Bible stories, get fed... but mostly: to be loved.

Your generous contributions over Christmas have blessed us greatly. New games, toys, and memory verse prizes showed up and are definitely appreciated.

Our Boys Only sleepover was a great success, with a good amount of boys and leaders to share in much-needed healthy male play and connection. I am grateful to God for providing men for our boys.

Our food pantry is full and we are supplying our neighbors with groceries as well as an extended hand to receive His love and provision.

We have a beautiful new hand-crafted table, our fence is fixed, shelves are built, and our yard is in great shape... all thanks to time and talent donated by Jesus-loving people who have given of themselves for His kingdom.

As we enter this new year I am on my knees in gratitude to God. He has held us well. And He has used you, His body of believers, to uphold, encourage and provide.

Thank you. I pray you hear His whispers to your heart.
