Message: “THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD”
“Keep On the Firing Line”
If you’re in the battle for the Lord and right,
Keep on the firing line;
If you wear a crown then brother you must fight,
Keep on the firing line;
There are many dangers that we all must face,
If we die still fighting it is no disgrace;
Cowards in the service will not find a place,
So keep on the firing line.
Refrain: Oh, you must fight, be brave against all evil,
Never run, nor even lag behind;
If you would win for God and the right,
Just keep on the firing line.
Pastor Jack Williams
Pianists: Helen Timm and Tim Troupe

THE APOSTLE’S CREED
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; on the third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen

Last year 264 families representing 280 children were assisted.
Things we need:
Diapers size newborn through size 6…pull ups 3t-5t…unscented wipes.
Pajamas size 3 months through size 4t (new or gently used).
Clothing (pants, shirts, outfits, winter coats) size 3 months through 4T (new or gently used);
