Welcome to LIAM TIMOTHY GOGGIN who arrived this week at a healthy 9 lbs. 9oz.
CONGRATS to Shannon and Shaughn and big sister Addy – all are doing great !

How Can you be a Blessing to the Goggins? – So glad you asked 🙂
From Rita DeMayo:
Shaughn and Shannon Goggin have welcomed a new baby boy to their family. I’m putting together a list of who can prepare dinners for the family. (I know when I was laid up, these meals meant the world to my family and I). They have a young daughter, Addy and the two of them. Dietary restrictions are that Shannon does not eat mayonnaise or ranch dressing. They live over by Villa Roma, but we might have a way of delivering, if you drop off at the church. We’d love to cover two weeks with meals every other night. They are coming home Friday and we have Saturday and Sunday covered.
Please contact RITA at 796-6078 so I can compile a list. Thank you so much for your servant hearts !! God Bless. Rita

Please continue to keep our other “waiting moms and dads” in prayer 🙂

It’s Time to Begin Collecting for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD !!
Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has collected more than 168 million shoeboxes packed with toys and other fun items, and delivered them to boys and girls in need around the world in partnership with local churches. Many boys and girls who receive shoebox gifts also enroll in The Greatest Journey, our 12-lesson follow-up discipleship program, where they learn to follow Christ and share Him with others. Millions of boys and girls have participated in this dynamic course so far. NOW is the time for us to begin COLLECTING ITEMS which we will later PACK into SHOEBOX GIFTS.
Here are items you can be on the LOOKOUT for now:
Small stuffed animals, Misc. accessories (hair ties/bows, sunglasses, jewelry …); Hygeine Items (brush/comb, bar soap, wash cloths, toothbrush, (no toothpaste allowed); and craft items.
There is a COLLECTION BOX in the church ! THANK YOU SO MUCH !!
