Church Challenge: Fill the Sanctuary with Prayer Bears! Prayer Bears are an excellent way to share the love of Jesus and the care and concern of our church with those who are sick, lonely, depressed, etc. During the holidays, many people are in need of a reminder that someone cares about them and that they are not forgotten. Please donate bears ($1 ea. at Dollar Tree, or clean, like-new used bears from home or Goodwill). There is also a Prayer Bear Fund in the office at Fulcher St to donate toward the purchase of bears. Let’s be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community!
