Mission of the Month – March:  March is a busy month for missions as we place our focus on three missions.  The Good New Jail & Prison Ministries mission is “Transforming lives behind bars here and around the world.”  They reach incarcerated men & women for Christ by reflecting his love.  New Missions in Haiti started in 1983 and has grown to 27 churches & elementary schools and each day 10,000 children receive an education, hot meals, medical care, uniforms, and the opportunity to hear the Gospel message of Hope in Jesus Christ.  Dave & Jennifer Bell of CSI Ministries-Kenya main focus is rescuing at-risk children and infants.  The Bell’s take in these abandoned children, bring them back to good health and offer them for adoption.  CSI partners with as many as 15 orphanages & children’s homes in the Nairobi area.

Soda CanSoda Pop Sunday: By simply donating the price of a can of soda will help save the life of a rescued infant at CSI Ministries-Kenya!!  These infants are often found abandoned along the road or in the trash.  So we are joining forces with other churches to support Dave & Jennifer Bell’s rescue mission in Kenya.  The last Sunday of every month will be designated as “Soda Pop Sunday”.  Funds collected will help buy needed items such as medicine, diapers, and infant food.  What a wonderful way to care for “the least of these” until they are adopted by a Christian family.  For more info about CSI Ministries, see the Mission Page.
