“So You’re The Ones We’ve Been Praying For”

 
This is a particularly awesome ministry that we are very excited about. The ones we’ll be praying for this term are those in the Department of Public Works. We’re going to start after Labor Day and, Lord willing, go through the National Day of Prayer. We will deliver home-made or purchased baked goods along with a note that states ‘We’re praying for you’ to different departments of the Public Works. Our goal is to let them know that they are thought of, appreciated, loved, and most of all, loved by God. 
 
 
 
 

children’s ministry

 
While our Block Parties aren’t just for children alone the bouncy house, cotton candy, popcorn, and face painting certainly attracts those of the more bouncy age. We will be at Williams’ Park on Broad Street in New London, right beside Dunkin Donuts, on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30. August 23, 30 and September 6, 13.  Fun for all ages and all FREE! 
 
This fall, we will be starting an American Heritage Girls troop! This is a Christ-based scouting program for girls ages 5-18. Their mission is “building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.”  You can find more information on their website at americanheritagegirls.org. We haven’t picked a date/time yet. That information will be published as soon as it becomes available! If you are interested in volunteering or have a young lady who would like to join please contact us. 
 
 

youth ministry

 

 
Our block parties and American Heritage Girls girls are for both children and youth; all ages in fact! In addition, open gym for middle and high school students will be resuming later in September, once the weather makes using the outdoor courts less desirable.
