Due to a cold snap, our community recently spent several days under a boil water order. Do you remember feeling inconvenienced? Maybe you had to head to the grocery store to buy bottled water, or boiled your own at home. But did you know that…
Unsafe water kills more people annually than all forms of violence, including war?
Mark your calendar now to attend our March member meeting. We will continue to learn about and serve in the area of Childhood Poverty & Hunger… this time internationally. A speaker from Marion Medical Mission will lead us in a discussion about the extreme situation for hundreds of millions of children in Africa who live without access to clean water. Then we will learn about volunteer activities we can participate in to provide children with a sustainable source of clean, safe, drinking water.
The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these bothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”—Matthew 25:40

A Win Win!
Planting seeds of Awareness and Service: Our guest speaker is from NFED, National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasia, (an inherited disorder that involves defects in the hair, nails, sweat glands and teeth). Our service project that night is providing the packing and postage for children’s books specifically designed for children with Ectodermal Dysplasia.
Planting seeds of personal health and wellness: a surprise for you! Please bring a friend!
The air is getting cool and crisp. People are making plans, gathering with family and friends. It’s exciting as we talk about old times, these times and the times to come. Knowing we are blessed we often reach out to bless others. Our hearts full of the Love born of this season.
