Children’s Ministry Need: Each Tuesday this fall beginning September 11, from 10:30 a.m to 12:00 noon, Jana Layman and Janna Gonzales will teach a Mother-Child Bi-lingual Bible class as part of Christian Outreach Alliance.  This class was well received last year and the mothers are eager to learn more.  We are in need of a helper to watch and play with the kids, after their portion of class ends.  Please contact Jana or Janna if you can help fill this need or this ministry appeals to you.
