Upcoming Events

Creating Gospel Bead Bracelets

A simple bracelet with five colorful beads: yellow, blue, red, clear and green. Each color on the leather strap represents an aspect of the gospel story. We place one in each of our PowerPacks and Easter Bags to tell the gospel.

We will be creating these Gospel Bead Bracelets on June 1 and again on June 12.

Each year we will be giving out backpacks full of school supplies and gospel material in each pack for the new school year.

The 2024 Packing Party for the PowerPacks will be July 13.

For more details and/or to request PowerPacks for your church/ministry, email David Urquhart.

Boxes of Love®

Our annual holiday food outreach takes place every November, with the training happening on a Saturday early in the month.

Easter Bags Outreach

Our annual Easter outreach for children — we will be giving out 2,000 bags filled with candy, a piece of fruit, a toy, and a gospel-bead bracelet through our partner ministries. The mandatory training/planning time will be held a few weeks in advance of the Easter outreach. The packing party where our partners and volunteers all work together to assemble the bags will take place shortly before Easter.

College Vision Tour

We provide a tour of a local university campus sometime in the spring. This is for current high school students, and they will participate in a fun scavenger hunt, receive lunch, get a campus tour from current students, and also hear testimonies from current students who are growing in their relationship with God during their college years. The date will be sometime in the spring.
