Rainbow Loom Bracelets for Sale

Malala Yousafzai said “One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” Hurricane Harvey hit our neighbors in Texas hard. Brookside Intermediate School in Friendswoods Texas is looking for book donations because their school took on a lot of water. Trinity Clawson will be selling Rainbow loom bracelets to raise money to buy books for their library, so she can help them change the world. The bracelet sale will be September 10th and 24th between services. The bracelets will range in price from $2.00- $5.00.  Thank you for your support.

Monument Sign

This is a photo mock up of the new monument sign! The wording on the bottom will be different, but this is to give you a visual of what we can expect! This sign is a wonderful opportunity for us to spread Christ’s message in our corner of the world. Making a monetary contribution to the sign is your opportunity to be a part of this story, to own a word, a sentence, a paragraph, or a page.  None can exist without the other! If you decide to make a contribution, please make sure to note on your check or envelope that the monies are for the sign. If we are blessed to receive more than the amount needed for the sign, the overage will be used for marketing such as interior signage. The new sign is scheduled to be operational by the end of October.  Thank you for your prayerful consideration!
