Extending the Table for May ~ Transform a Child’s Future

Each year, Epworth Children’s Home provides care to children in our own communities who have experienced abuse, neglect, and loss.  Epworth’s care breaks the destructive cycle and encourages children to aim higher in life.   Each child receives the physical, emotional, academic, and spiritual care they need to transform their lives.  This care makes a difference.  It develops long-term healing, self-worth and self-confidence.  It transforms children who are three years behind in school into honor roll students, high school graduates, and college […]

Advent’s Habitat Faith Build Recap

Habitat’s Faith Build Recap

By: Karen Schulz

Growing up, our home was always buzzing with activity – classmates over studying, neighborhood kids playing ball in the front yard, epic birthday parties that were the envy of the town, the ladies from circle gathering for prayer group, special guests for dinner, or just friends popping by to say a quick hello.  Everyone who came over was welcomed with open arms, fed (even if they weren’t hungry!) and encouraged to come back soon.  We never knew from one minute to the next how many people would be […]

Advent Strong T-Shirts Available!
