SRC Annual Christmas Card

Our 2015 Congregational Christmas Card Offering will go toward a special gift for Rod & Lori Kraybill. They have asked our prayers for God’s supply of the support increase they need to return to the field. Besides Rod’s increased work load with AIM, both Rod & Lori will be dorm parents, working with youth at Rift Valley Academy, in Kijabe, Kenya.
The card is posted at the back of the sanctuary on the table for you to sign. We will collect donations each Sunday through Sunday, Dec. 27th.
