Focus on the Family - Greetings and heartfelt thanks for your wonderful $15,000.00 donation given in honor of H.B. London.  This gift is such a moving tribute to H.B. and his faithful service to the Lord, his sincere love for God's people, and his heart for pastors.  Be assured this generous contribution will be applied wisely and carefully to our efforts to minister to those serving in full-time ministry.  We will continue working to build on the foundation that H.B. laid with such devotion.  We're confident his Godly legacy will endure for many years to come.  We are grateful for the many ways your church family loved, supported, and blessed H.B. and Beverley throughout their time with you.

  FRIENDSHIP WOMEN
 
Catherine Martin_ Pastor of Women_s Ministries
         You are invited to join Friendship 
     Women for Bible study and        
     fellowship. Our goal is "to know Christ 
     and make Him known."
                     
       But more than that, I count everything as loss         
       compared to the priceless privilege and supreme    
       advantage of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord [and of 
       growing more deeply and thoroughly acquainted with                Him-a joy unequaled].  Philippians 3:8 AMP        
          
        Catherine Martin
