OUR SPECIAL OFFERING FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER

 IS “Great Hour of Sharing” which is a program of

 Reformed Church World Service, which brings new life and

 hope to God’s children across the globe. This year’s theme is

 ‘Sharing Brings Joy”, based on 2 Corinthians 9:8 “God is able to

 provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always

 having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every

 good work.” 

 One of the recent areas RCWS is addressing is the African hunger

 crisis, due to severe drought, in Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, and

 Sudan. Recently, Hurricane Irene has resulted in flooding and other

 damage which has devastated homes and churches along the US East

 Coast….RCWS will assess the situation and provide financial help as

 they are able. This special offering will be received on October 30.

 

LOCAL Habitat for Humanity BUILD! A work group from
