Remember, Jeff Simpson, our former assistant pastor, will be ordained on Friday evening.

BIBLES FOR THE PHILIPPINES – Our Sunday School kids are collecting loose change to buy Bibles to send to Joe and Mercy Nieboer, our missionaries in the Philippines. Each Bible costs only $1.50. They will be adding a note to each Bible that will be presented to the recipient. Please be ready to give them your change when they ask you.

CHOICES WOMEN’S CENTER LUCERNE PROJECT Please join with us as we pray for the purchase of new facilities for the Choices Women’s Center. The original goal was to raise $750,000 by September 15th. Many small, and some large donations have come in. Let’s contribute, and pass the word to complete the fundraising. Please pray with us for God’s miraculous provision for this vital life-saving ministry.
