Read this story: Little acts of service mean a lot

At local malls and at a nearby high school, DCA students are visibly touching the lives of others in their community. One day the nearby public high school students were surprised to hear Christian music playing in the parking lot. Then, in a gesture of friendship, DCA students shared popsicles and chatted with their new acquaintances. Read more...

Joshua Kids preach Truth 4 Youth

If you think evangelism is just for adults, think again! A group of kids from the Joshua church in Joshua, Tex., recently presented an evangelistic series, Truth 4 Youth, conducted entirely by and for kids from September 6 through October 4, 2008. More than 170 children attended the meetings in which 14 youth, ages 8 to 15, were the speakers. Average nightly attendance was 60-100 children, who enjoyed a program of PowerPoint presentations, songs, crafts, a nature nugget, health talks, special music, and story time by Pastor Stauffer. The youth are excited and are now preparing to present the Truth 4 Youth series during ShareHim meetings to be held in the Philippines later this year. Approximately 10 families are planning to participate. If you feel impressed to donate funds toward this exciting evangelistic endeavor, please contact Duane or Kathy McKey at the Southwestern Union office at 817-295-0476. Read more...

Despite challenges church social goes on

(Tex.) What do you do when you make plans and then, some major catastrophe changes things? Some would get discouraged, but the Burleson church bounced back—literally! A Labor Day church social was planned and two bounce houses were rented for the day, but then came Hurricane Gustav and many people evacuated to North Texas. Our church is located beside I-35 on the service road, which prompted the Red Cross to ask to use our facility as a local headquarters and a welcome stop for evacuees. The social was located at the church at the same place and time. Read more...

An astonishing 75 percent of those who attended were non-Adventist. This may be in part because preparation for the seminar included a five-hour prayer vigil and several weeks of daily prayers offered by numerous pairs of church prayer partners.
