The old cliche is true that it takes an entire village to raise a child.
Before you turn your head and declare that this hurting and broken generation is not your problem, I ask you to reconsider. Many times we turn our head because we lack understanding or confidence that we could ever contribute and actually make a change.
I would like to issue a SCHOOL ZONE CHALLENGE, with school starting back our students need our love support and prayer more than ever. Will you commit with myself and others to always pray when driving by a school zone. We all pass them every single day, usually discouraged or antsy that we have to slow down, and it only takes a moment of your time. It’s that simple.
Our teens stayed at the church from Wednesday-Sunday! They had the honor of cooking dinner for 23 homeless neighbors. We were able to serve, prayer, and share with people often forgotten in our community. It was a great honor, and something we hope we have the privilege of doing it again soon.We also served with West Texas Gifts of Hope, at Hope House. We packed gift bags for patients attending their first chemo class. It was a humbling for me to get to pray for the families whose battles are just beginning, as the teens packed bags. It was an amazing week!

Canned Food Sunday
Catholic Charities Food Pantry is out of commission due to repairs from this summer’s hail storm. Our food donations have been taken to Westminster Presbyterian to assist with the community wide food pantry they host on the last Saturday of every month. To assist our sister church’s mission, we will be collecting Spam and Ranch Style Beans this month. The shopping cart is located in the Prayer Room, and donations can be made any time during the month.
Thank you for being His hands and feet.
