CYEC Update

Janelle Larson & Kristine Adams

In last month’s The Lighted Cross, Janelle gave us an update on the Children and Youth Empowerment Centre. They were looking to start a Food Pantry to benefit those who need their services. Our Easter Sunday offering collection was earmarked for this food pantry. Well, we surpassed the goal of $750. $766 was collected!

CYEC sends their thanks and gratitude for this wonderful gift. This will make a real difference in their community. Janelle will be traveling ot Kenya in May with students and she will provide an update and photos when she returns.

Our society's focus on immediate pleasure, even within religious circles through the "prosperity gospel," overlooks the true, lasting fulfillment found in aligning with God's will. The story of Lazarus illustrates this principle, demonstrating that temporary delays can reveal greater purposes. As a church community, we are called to make Christ known by prioritizing service, building genuine relationships, and sharing hope. Embracing this purposeful approach leads to deeper satisfaction and a lasting impact.
