Bucket Brigade: The third Sunday of every month children pass buckets through the congregation at the 11:00am worship service collecting money for church hunger relief missions. One of the missions the bucket money supports is World Vision International. The children adopted a 10-year-old Kenyan boy named Njoroge Peterson through World Vision six years ago. The children often write to Njorge and send him little surprise packages. The children love to receive their special mail back from Africa!
