THIS WEEK AT A GLANCE // JULY 23-27, 2017

 

SUNDAY, July 23

Back to School Adoption!

This summer, Forum has gathered names from children's homes in our area, and you have the chance to provide back-to-school clothing (school supplies and fun items are optional) that those children will need when they go back to school! Names of children will be coming from Show-Me Christian Youth Home, Shiloh Christian Children's Ranch, and Coyote Hill Christian Children's Home.

Beginning on July 23rd, you can pick up a card at the Starting Point to “adopt” a child and buy for their needs.

Please do be mindful that not all children will have this opportunity, so try not to "over-buy". Thank you!
