Our offering today is for support for the En-Gedi Children’s Home - Margaret Njuguna. 

At the En-Gedi Children’s Home in Kenya, the love of God is shared with the many children who love each other, play together, sing and dance as they have been able to do so. They are created in God’s image. They are not disabled. They are abled differently!

Next Sunday, October 21st, our offering will be for Ministry Support for Diana Boot. 

Diana is working in Uganda as a Christian Education Specialist, working with Christian teachers to help them grow in their understanding and practice of teaching as a reflection of their calling to serve God in all they are and do. She helps to develop intentional thinking and teaching practice that Christian teachers will, in turn, impart to others.

Food for Thought:

Nothing more beautiful than the name of Jesus...Nothing compares to this...the name of Jesus. What do you think when you sing a song about Jesus? What do you think when you hear His name? When you hear it, does it register, make you pause and fill you with warmth nothing else can? What a beautiful name it is, the name of Jesus!" Is it the name of your favourite person?
