  • February Mission of the Month

    childhood literacy

    This month, we are focusing on childhood literacy! You are encouraged to donate new, or like-new, children’s books to be distributed to children at area relief agencies. Place them in the "Mission of the Month" bins located at any worship location! We will ALSO be raising $8,000 so every PreK-5th grade child at Terrace, East, and Northwest Elementary Schools will be able to choose their very own book at their school's Scholastic Book Fair. We are also helping provide a book for each one of our Bright Beginnings Preschool children. Find an offering envelope at the Connect or write "Children’s Books" in the memo line of your check.
