Mission of the Month

November missions touch our community

 -Kathy Littrell, Missions Chair

   What a busy mission month November was! We had enough items to make over 150 Blessing Bags. The children packed them for us and they are in the fellowship hall waiting for you to pick one or two up. Keep them in your car and when you see a homeless person on the street, you will be able to bless him or her! How awesome is that? Thank you to all who donated the needed items!

   The West Decatur Elementary Clothes Closet was a huge success! Every family was able to pick out 5 clothing items per child as well as a pair of shoes and new undies. Amy Waters and I felt like Santa Claus! What a blessing it was to everyone involved. The principal was so pleased with the event and would love to do it again next year!
