Welcome in the name of Jesus Christ


The excitement at Luther Branson Elementary School was evident when deliveries of   large loads of school supplies were made in July.   The principal had requested that we give special attention to five items, and we delivered over 100 of each of those. Included in the over 800 total items were 68 brand new backpacks, so it seems you have once again earned the students’ label of The Book Bag Fairy. Many supplies were brought to the church, and others were purchased with your monetary gifts totaling $649.00.
            Our Vacation Bible School children began the 2015 gifts with great enthusiasm, and their Sunday morning collection was also designated for a period for this ministry. Our church membership was true to its nature as a giving and caring body of believers. Your gifts mean so much to the children, their parents, their teachers and the school administration. Thank you for making the sixth annual summer ministry a huge success!

In His Steps (IHS) ministries provide Christ-centered ministries to at-risk children, juvenile offenders and their families.   Jasper and Carolyn Bacon are Canton natives.  Their boundless energy and love of God and his children are evident when you visit the campus on North Liberty.   They work closely with area churches to provide programs and resources for Canton children and families. 

Members of our church tutor, serve breakfasts at Saturday morning Reading Clinics and help with Vacation Bible School.   Find other opportunities for short-term and long-term  ministry at their website:
