Our small group volunteered on Toy collection day at Eastview and had a blast!! As of last Sunday, the total toy collection was upwards of 25oo!! Now that is God's love working through some serious toy donations!!
Imagine day is December 18th at Eastview. If you know of someone in need, please call the church office for further details, or send me an email and I will get the information for you.
It is a wonderful thing!!
Go Team Fulkerson!!!
We are so fortunate to be part of such a wonderful small group!!!

Imagine Kick Off - Toys

This year we kicked off our holiday season by heading out to buy toys for the Imagine project at our church. Imagine is a wonderful outreach that will provide thousands of toys, coats, and food to families that are in need here in our community. This year our budget was more of a challenge, but we were still able to purchase five wonderful gifts that we pray will bless 5 wonderful children. There has been a lot of discussion in our home this year about where these toys go-the kids are beginning to realize that cell phones, iPads, Itouches, and all of the things that we think we "need" really have little meaning in the big picture that God paints for each of us. While I do not mean to push volunteerism only during the holidays, I would encourage you to reach out to someone in need during this time where many aren't feeling the joy of the season. Then perhaps we will reach out beyond the season and continue to give to those who have a need whether big or small.
