For the past several years, we have been helping supply items for the children who reside at Potter Children’s Home in Bowling Green, KY.  This year, they have asked us to donate the following items:  13 gallon kitchen trash bags; water; Spray & Shout Stain Remover; canned whole tomatoes and canned refried beans. They also need cash for fresh foods.  The deadline for bringing the items to the building is May 12.


Being in Christ and His kingdom contains a value greater than all others. When one counts the blessings of being a child of God,  one quickly sees that being right with God is worth every sacrifice asked of us.  In next week’s sermon presentation, “Pearl of Great Price,” Phil Sanders will help the listeners more fully appreciate the value of Christ’s kingdom and the sacrifices from us it deserves.  The weekly program can be seen Sundays at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
