Pastor Bob announced Sunday that he and the worship team have opened the door for testimonies.

That Pastor said, "I was very impressed by the three testimonies provided on June 18. Each witness picked a favorite Scripture and built their story around it. They spoke about why that Scripture was so meaningful to them, and/or they shared an experience that related to that verse.

Pastor Bob invites witnesses to offer personal testimony about 3-5 minutes long during the Ministry Moment. Pray about it, and if you are willing to serve, please advise" the Pastor.

Pastor Bob added, "I genuinely believe there is a testimony within every believer."

Son-shine Pre-School

We are blessed to have Son-shine Pre-School. We have a committed director, dedicated teachers, and helpers. Our goal is to have 40 children each semester.

About a month ago we had 21 registered. We asked for prayer.

Ask God to bless the children already signed up. Next, give thanks to God for all the children he will lead our way. Also, help us get out the word to all families in our area.

If you have any questions or potential students, please reach out to Glenda at 1-660-563-2429.
GOOD of today...We have increased to 32 students.

Keep praying...keep thanking God…keep reaching out. There is still time to reach our goal.

Visit our Son-Shine Preschool web page.

Service Project & Tour

We are in the process of arranging a service project at the base and a tour of the UCM Wesley Foundation in Warrensburg.

The project is to provide a meal for the on-base Bible study on Wednesdays at 6 pm. We are also looking at a possible Thursday or Friday program.

The idea is for volunteers to prepare and provide a covered dish meal, and the Confirmation class would deliver it, serve it, and clean it up. This will give us an opportunity to meet some of the airmen and introduce our church.

If you would be willing to help please advise Pastor Bob.
The exact date is pending further communication.

Youth and Children

We give thanks to God for the increase of children on Sunday mornings. Katie and her helpers do a great job. However, ages can range from 2-12. So, Katie is looking for added volunteers so we can provide classes that better fit the ages of the children. If you are willing to help, any number of Sundays, please contact Katie ASAP.
