Guiding Principle #1 - as a church to give 10% of offerings to missions.
Guiding Principle #2 - to have a sponsor child for every one of the children in our local congregation (so they might grow together, correspond with each other, and learn from one another).
Our Sponsor Children
Jesus called the children to come to him, as he spoke and taught - he rebuked his disciples when they tried to keep them from him! He also said: "whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me."
Our sponsor kids and those of our community are part of "the family" and are dear to us, as they are to our God...

The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
