Our Missionaries minister to residents at St. James Manor in neighboring Crete passing the staff with a hello and a smile. But during the Covid 19 pandemic, healthcare providers were bearing a heavier load rendering critical services while understaffed and overworked.

There are so many greats referenced in Scriptures. Men, women, boys and girls – some named and many unnamed who have done remarkably for the kingdom of God. Join our weeklong symposium on unsuspecting heroes who were unexpected, unworthy, unnoticed and unpolished but singled out by God. Our 2020 Vacation Bible School, Heroes Headquarters, will teach children about biblical heroes who made a difference. What can you do? Volunteer to help children understand how God sees heroes or donate supplies and resources.
