My Own Bookcase Project Sponsorships Available

 
The Service and Missions team is excited to announce the sixth year of our MY OWN BOOKCASE project.
This project, cosponsored by our church and the Murphysboro Kiwanis,
will provide 40 children in the Murphysboro Head Start program with their very own handmade bookcase and a starter set of books.
The goal of this project is to encourage parents to read to their children, and to improve literacy in the children in our community.
Last year we provided 35 Head Start children with a bookcase and books and the look on the children’s faces when they were presented their bag of books was priceless!!!
If you would like to help support this ministry, please pick up one of the flyers that are located either at the back of the sanctuary or by the doors to the education wing. Your generous support will make a positive and everlasting difference in the life of a child.
