Teddy Bear Ministry

Bears are placed on our church pews to hear God's Word and songs of praise.  Take one and share with someone who might be homebound, or sick, or just someone who might need a smile and a bear hug.  Then you replace that bear with another bear, and the ministry continues!  Questions?  Contact Diane Gilmore.  She knows all there is to know about Teddy Bears!

Jesus did not come to make God's love possible, but to make God's love visible.
