Missions Month

We just wrapped up missions month tonight. Darrell Hayes was the guest speaker for the last few days.

Our attendance has been down all month due to flu bugs circulating through the whole county (one local school was missing something like 130 out of 700 kids one day a while back, and a local hospital suspended visitation due to a few cases of Norovirus.)

But our faith promise pledge as of tonight was just over $42,000. That's $12,000 more than last year, possibly more than the church has ever had before.

It's not only great for the missions program; it'll enable us at the least to fully support a couple of very worthy ministries that we've been looking at for a while -- it's also great for the church itself. Churches that are missions-minded and missions-oriented, active in doing something about needs around the world, are healthy churches.
