Nigeria Mission Trip
Christi Howard and Hannah Hughes departed for Nigeria on Thursday, 2/23, for the 19th Annual Ladies Bible Lectureship at Susana Homes. Around 1000 ladies attended. They will be worked with the Christian Girls Summit - the group of young ladies that come to the Lectureship. They worked with 20 of the olders girls at Susana Homes on learning to teach cradle roll through toddler classes. After these ladies teach for 6 months, they will receive monogrammed tote bags as a reward. Christi and Hannah enjoyed playing several camp games with the children!

SCOTLAND Mission Trip
July 2017 -
The campaign will take place in Perth, Scotland the first week of July. The Perth congregation continues to grow in small numbers since November 2014 start and the youth club is now up to 30 weekly. The preacher is Scott Tominey, who we support as a missionary, and is currently completing his Preaching School studies in the ACT program. The Perth campaign will consist of devotionals, morning Bible coffee shop studies, surveying and inviting youth/families to HBC (Holiday Bible Class) and gospel meetings in the city centre, conducting afternoon HBC sessions (Mon -Thu) and Youth Club activities in late afternoon and gospel meeting in the evening. We will work side-by-side with members from the Cumbernauld and Perth congregations who support Scott. Please pray for this effort and team of youth/adults.
