During the month of May, we will be accepting donations to help ‘Winnie’s Kids’ in Kenya. Each donation received will be matched, up to a total of $1,000, from the Missions & Benevolence Sulanke Trust. Please mark all contributions ‘Winnie’s Kids,’ place it in either a pink or pew envelope, and add it to the offering plate during Sunday morning worship (if writing a check, it would greatly help our bookkeeper if you write a separate check from your regular offering). We will present Winnie with our offerings on ‘Kenya Day,’ Sunday, June 18. There are great needs in Kenya, so please prayerfully consider how you can help ‘Winnie’s Kids.’
