The Kids4Peace over-night retreat held in the Fellowship Hall last weekend had 18 kids and adults writing encouragement messages for children who will be receiving Color Our World art supply kits to help them endure traumatic situations such as hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.
On the next day of the retreat, they painted the ‘Magic Suitcases’ which will hold the kits that they filled with supplies. Other weekend activities included Skyping with friends in Seattle whom they had met at last summer’s National Camp and discussing how last week’s election affected them and will affect the future mission of Kids4Peace. (p.s. Thanks to WFC for leaving the delicious treats for us!)

Thank you to everyone
who helped and supported our chicken pie supper this year. As in years gone by it was a GREAT success. Our chicken pie supper has been a tradition since 1925 “when there was no running water and the ladies brought their own dishes for serving the meal“.
Our Church, as well as the community, look forward to this wonderful experience each year. The chicken pie supper helps to support not only our Church, but also aids the Women of the Church Missions.
Thank you to everyone who helped with this year’s dinner. Go to our Photo Gallery and get a glimpse of a few of the workers that helped make this year another success.
