MISSION: BUILD SUPERHEROES who are unstoppable in their quest for truth, justice, etc. You can help children become heroes by allowing them to undertake projects that meet needs and help others experience God's love in practical ways. Each month we will learn about ordinary people, empowered by the supernatural strength of God. These real-life heroes help change lives in North America and worldwide. Sharing the gospel is serious business, but you can have a blast helping children learn how! Sign up to help in any age group by contacting Patricia Whaley.
