Heifer Sunday: On November 3, 2019, our Fellowship Hall was transformed into a Living Gift Market in support of Heifer International. Throughout the month of October the children learned about Heifer International and how the organization transforms the lives of needy people around the world. Each class studied a specific animal and will make headdresses to wear at their tables that day. This is an important stewardship event for our children.
