We will be placing a veterans and first repsonders memorial garden in the front yard where the flag pole is, we are selling memorial bricks to go in the garden, these bricks will have your loved ones name and service dates on them, all money collected from the bricks goes directly to the garden, the stone has been ordered and will be here soon, we are hoping and placed, it is beautiful and is an honor to each branch of the military as well as first repsonders. The bricks are $100 or you can donate any amount of money you would like to this cause, just write in the memo if you are writing a check "memorial garden" or if you are putting cash in an envelope please do the same thing, if giving online please write in the notes, that you are purchasing a brick for the memorial with the persons first and last name, branch of the military or police, fire, ems, etc and dates. same for other we need that information.

Our 128th homecoming was nothing short of amazing! We had 69 people join us for service. We had a wonder group called 7 pounds of bacon there singing in addition to our own wonderful praise team. Dr. Tommy Green delivered an amazing message! The food was hot, tasty, and on point. The fellowship was great as always. God as truly blessed Red level in the last 128 years but the best part of all was the fact that we had 2 people accept Christ that day!!!

Food Ministry Update
We had our first Wednesday distribution for the second week of the month on the 14th and it went so wonderful. We had 19 new families come through and while it is sad that 19 new families needed our help it is great that we were able to meet that need and that they came! It was getting to the point on Sunday afternoons where we were not seeing but maybe 5 families coming through so we knew we needed to change so we prayed about how God would have us change and this is what we were told and it sure did work. So we are in awe of what God is going at Red Level and we are very humbled to be a part of his plan! John 6:11 It is amazing how God can take our meager offerings and turn them in to more than enough!
*******Also we can always use donations of non perishable in date canned food****** if you would like to donate perishable items that is also fine we just ask that you do that with in a week of distribution so we can ensure we have the space to house it. Also if you would like to donate UNUSED personal hygiene items such as bar soap, toothpaste, deodorant, razors, dish soap, laundry soap ect. we would be very thankful to receive them. Thank you so much for that.
Food Distribution Date

For this one we could really use bar soap, please keep in mind it needs to be individually wrapped

This is a day of FUN mission work, not even a day really just a couple of hours. BUT you get to enjoy great fellowship and the gift of knowing you are making a little boy or girl somewhere in this world very happy this Christmas and you are sharing the gospel with them!!!! Acts 1:8bCSB "be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth"
