A Pastor’s Perspective

Last Wednesday we completed another school year with our Wednesday afternoon kids program! This year, the group sang songs, studied the Bible, had great snacks, and played lots of games, and performed Christmas and Easter plays. Our kids were fantastic!

This program would not happen without the adults who give of their time to make it happen. Lots of thanks to Patty Savage, Don Savage, Terri Van Clavern, Nancy Mitchell, Jennifer Rosa, Sandy Wilson, Kendra Weingart, Bette Taylor, Glenda Frazier, David Kirchner, Dianne Betz, Greg Weingart, Matt Hendon, Heather Hendon, Gracie Mitchell, and others who provided snacks and support. I apologize if I missed anyone! Thanks to all who have supported this opportunity for our children to learn more about their faith journey!

The recent storm damage and flooding around our area and throughout the nation have caused some to ask what the church can do to help. There are many charitable organizations that help, but the organization that is specifically Disciples of Christ focused is Week of Compassion. We take an offering each year for Week of Compassion. The funds are used to offer “solidarity grants” to Disciples churches and families connected to them when disasters occur. WOC has already connected with First Christian Church in Eldon and Community Christian in Jefferson City to assist both churches and those in their congregation who had damage. We will focus on their need this week. Your contributions to Week of Compassion are needed!

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend!
