Children’s Books
We have been given the go ahead by the Denison Public Library to purchase some Christian themed books for children that will be placed in circulation. Our hope is that these books will be a blessing to families who check out these books and learn of the message of the Bible—maybe for the first time! Our goal is to raise $400 for this project. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please contact Rachel McClure.
