Project: Acts 29
On a beautiful Sunday in October 2011, the congregation was dismissed after a few words by Pastor Dave and asked to put their love into action by going to the Edgewater Winn-Dixie to buy groceries for several local food pantries and baby items for Grace House Pregnancy Resource Center. The generous response was overwhelming and much appreciated! See our folks in action.
Mali - November 2011
Pastor Dave, Jamie Sulle, and Joliene and Molly Smith traveled to Mali to minister to an annual convention for missionaries. This African country has nearly 15 million people, yet only 1% are Christians. It is the third poorest nation in the world. Mali is a land in need of light and the Christian & Missionary Alliance is shining the light of Christ’s love in the midst of the darkness of poverty, sickness, and Islam.
