Thank You
Thank you, dear church, for the ways you love and support us. We have so much appreciation for the prayers, donations and the "walkers" we were blessed with for the Walk for Alzheimer's. All of you are so dear in your own ways. It just overwhelms us to know the Lord is blessing us through you in so many ways. May each of you know you are a blessing and may you be blessed!!! With Christ's Love, Ellen Adams & Wayne Major

"He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor." Proverbs 22:9... Dear friends, thank you. Your dedication is a blessing! Newgate Mission

Thank you for all you do to support the ministry at House of Hope by working and giving through Longview EPC. We could not help these ladies without generous supporters like you. May you be blessed greatly for your generosity. Mickie Klotz, House of Hope
