Union Rescue Mission Christmas Bags
Thank for you partnering with us in providing Christmas bags for the Union Rescue Mission! If you have a bag at home, please bring it, with the Bible and requested items, to the church by Sunday, December 11 so we can deliver them to URM. If you have any questions, contact Pastor Lucas.

Manger Tree
Through the end of December, you can find the Manger Tree in the hallway outside the church office. Include others in your celebration of Christmas by joining our missions partner Embrace in supporting families in need. Simply pick an ornament from the tree and return the listed baby item (unwrapped) to the manger next to the tree by the end of the year. (See list of needed baby items>>>)

Perspectives Missions Class
Are you interested in learning more about God’s heart for those unreached with the gospel around our world? Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is a 15-week course that will take participants through lessons looking at biblical, historical, cultural, and strategic elements of God’s redemptive purposes. The first class is free and scholarships are available with the discount code EFREE. The class begins January 8 or 9 with a Sunday evening option at Pathway Church (west) and a Monday evening option at Countryside Christian Church (east). You can register or learn more about the course at the Perspectives website. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Lucas.
