We give thanks and praise to God for a wonderful evening of great food and fellowship. God opened the floodgates and provided $35,000 toward our new playground and outdoor fellowship area! Below is a picture of some of the kids who were at the auction who will get to enjoy this new playground, as well as a picture of what our new playground may look like. A new playground is a ministry tool. As our children grow up physically, we want God to grow them in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ! We want our little ones to feel welcome, to enjoy being in God's house, and to know they are a valued part of Christ's kingdom. "Let the children come to Me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 19:14).
