On Sunday November 14,2010, we wound up our Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign. Our challenge was to fill 30 boxes but by church time on Sunday night we had 78. By Monday afternoon we had added 11 more boxes to this total making our total 89 boxes. Praise the Lord for His mighty works.
We celebrated pastor appreciation month in October. Today it was topped off with a special song from the children, a hilarious skit, and some big checks for Pastor Phillip and Sister Ernie. We sure do love and appreciate them.
Operation Christmas Child is well underway. We have until Nov. 14 to get the shoeboxes ready. Fill them up and bless a child in the world. See Katina for details.
We were blessed with a wonderful weekend here at Pine Grove. The fall festival gave children an opportunity to have fun in a christian environment. Games and fun abounded. There was a bounce house, cupcake walk, face painting, crafts, duck pond, bean bag toss, football throw, cornhole, disk toss, toilet paper throw, cookie decorating, barrel train, ring toss, bottle game, pumpkin carving, puppets, and trunks full of treats. Popcorn, hotdogs, and barbecue was served.
Youth services on Sunday were wonderful. 4HISGLORY topped off the night with blacklight puppet ministry. God is good! Many families were blessed this weekend and I've seen some new faces in the services here at Pine Grove Church of God of Prophecy.
