OUR CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
NEEDS YOU!
Would you be willing to serve the children and parents of our faith family? Grab a friend and help us fill in the gaps.

Nursery & Toddler Volunteers
We are in need of volunteers to serve in both the nursery and the toddler rooms during worship. So many unexpected blessings come from spending time with the youngest children of our faith family!

KidMin- DigIn-Wednesday Night Meals
The spring semester of Bible Study and fun is starting up SOON! We love having the opportunity to minister to our working parents and build relationships with our children by serving a light meal at 5:15. Would you be willing to sign up and provide a meal for the children of our church and our community? If you are unable to bring a meal, but would like to serve in other ways or contribute towards our Wednesday Night Meal fund that would also be greatly appreciated.

THANK YOUS
Thank you for the beautiful poinsettia. I'm really continuing to enjoy it. I had a wonderful visit with Mary Alphin. Love, Celeste Boyd

Dear Friends of Newgate, Thank you for your continued support. We are best known for providing meals for the low-income, homeless and working poor. However, we offer dozens of services so that we may effectively address the challenges of individuals including showers, employment programs, and housing referrals. Through a partnership with LeTourneau University, we offer medical checks and M.D. consultations with a local physician. We are also assisting individuals in returning to the work-force through our Ready to Work program. With sincerest gratitude, Hollie Bruce, Executive Director

Dear Friends at Longview EPC, Merry Christmas and Happiest of New Years. We are so thankful for you and pray that all is well with you. We are so appreciative of your continued love and thoughtful gifts you have given throughout the year. Thank you for walking with us. Much love, Mike & Tammy
