WE are____. This one simple blank leaves infinite possibilities.

WE are many things to many people, but what has Jesus called us to be? 

Over the next four weeks as we explore what words might fill this blank, we will take a deeper look into the parable of the sower. What we know for sure, is that WE are Assurance!

With summer coming to an end, it is time to launch back into our normal programming style! As sad as they are to see The Amazing Race end, the kids are excited about returning to the rotation stations that they love each week...But we can't do it without your help!

You are invited to join our KidMin team, we love what we do and we love sharing Jesus with your children! It does take a bit of a commitment; 4-6 weeks, but the reward is overwhelming. Email me, let me take you to coffee and share how we do our KidMin programming! It is truly unique!

Love, Mrs. Tina

"What I mean is this: the one who sows a small number of seeds will also reap a small crop, and the one who sows a generous amount of seeds will also reap a generous crop.  Everyone should give whatever they have decided in their heart. They shouldn’t give with hesitation or because of pressure. God loves a cheerful giver." – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

In response to all that God has done for us, we are invited to give and live generously. Thank you for your partnership in the gospel of Jesus Christ, which allows us to live into our mission to grow in Jesus & go in service.  Your gift matters!
