penniesHave you ever wondered how much money is in a mile of pennies?

A mile of pennies, laid edge to edge, is worth $844.40!

Our Mission’s Committee is inviting everyone to join together and begin saving pennies for the purpose of helping our children in the North Carolina Baptist Children’s Home.  Though any type of financial currency is welcomed, the goal will be to attain the value of one mile of pennies.

The purpose of these pennies will be to help minister to the needs of children who have not always had a safe home and loving family.  Many of these children come to live at Baptist Children’s Homes with houseparents in cottages.  Many of these hear, for the first time, of the love of God shown through Jesus Christ.

On Wednesday, February 24th, a representative of the Baptist Children’s Home, Karen Slate, Development Director for the the Triad Area, will be with us to give an update of the work of the Children’s Home.

There will be receptacles at the church for you to bring in your collection by Sunday, February 28th.  Begin finding those pennies and help us reach the goal!
