Children’s Ministry Update:
Please remember to be in prayer for our children’s ministry. Every week, it seems there are new “little faces” in our midst. Our architect, Jev Vaughan, of Jackson has visited and is drawing renovation plans for the downstairs educational area. Our wish is to renovate this space to make it a safe and attractive learning environment for both teaching and learning. As we return in the fall, we’ll be talking about the future and how God can make this vision a reality. Until then, meditate on Jesus’ words: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19: 14)
