The Engage Community Team thanks our congregation for the generous support they offered to this special ministry in 2021. The Team wanted to experiment with a monthly mission for one year to see how God would lead. Indeed He did! New partnerships were gained that seem right to focus on even more in 2022. The team will continue to evaluate the possibility of continuing with a Mission of the Month. We are most excited about pouring into GLEE, Embrace Grace, The Perry Geevon Smith Schools in Liberia and exploring further the possibility of engaging our community through Hispanic Ministry. We value the input and ideas of our congregation. Please do share your thoughts. We are seeing evidence of God at work in our church. For that, we give thanks!

Dear Fellow Redeemed,
Thank you for your support of Perry Smith School’s in Liberia. We have a total of 39 students supported for the year. Wow! What a blessing you all are to changing the lives of children and their families as the children learn about Jesus and have a Christian education so they can have a better life.
We want to express our thanks to all the support from the church for the Embrace Grace baby shower. The love that was poured out on the girls left a big impact.
Praising God for Colin Toth for taking pictures and for Jessica Nieves and her team, Joanne Elmers, Vickie Rosentreter and Patty Smith, for providing the food and decorations.
God has big plans for these girls and it was a privilege and honor to be a part of it.
