YOUTH CORNER:

 

This month’s child is Drake.

 

Hi, my name is Drake. I am 10 years old and I attend Big Bear Elementary School.  I am a nephew of Jerry and Carolyn.

I like everything about coming and participating in church.  I enjoy attending Sunday school and being an Acolyte.

My interests are that I want to be a pilot when I grow up, and I like to play football most of all the sports.

I have two brothers and one sister, 18, a big brother who is 16, and a little brother who is 4.

We want to specially thank Pastor, the elders, the acolytes, and the ushers, and all those who helped prepare for making our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Services so beautiful.
