(our latest steps): “Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance”

This week was very special as many of our staff stepped into different roles during our concert.
The children were so excited to worship alongside Auntie Helen!
Uncle Josh spoke about walking without fear and carrying the Father’s heart into the world
in Pittsfield Church of the Nazarene in Illinois.
Uncle Ethan also shared about Compassion International and
and encouraged others to step up to meet the needs of children around the world.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

“For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:10
