Costa Rica Mission 2018
The dates have been set for the mission trip to Costa Rica for 2018. The team will leave on July 21 and return on either July 29 or 30. Because airfare must be booked so early, it’s not too soon to begin praying about going. Trips such as this take many months to plan and the airfare is first on the list! Think you might be interested? Visit with either Brenda Stone, 656-0679 or Jimmie VonGonten, 277-1914. This trip is a life changing event!

Stewardship Month
October is Stewardship month and we are asking you to pray for the entire month but also specifically for things we have listed each day on the prayer calendar. Our theme for the campaign is Expect a Miracle and our key Scripture verse is Habakkuk 1:5 – The Lord’s Answer “Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” In order to “expect a miracle” to be utterly amazed we must pray for both the Stewardship Campaign and our budgetary needs we must ask God’s hand to lead us.
