The evening will also feature a special video presentation by Erin Wathen, from Week of Compassion's National Office.  She will share an overview about current relief work being done, and information about a new rehabilitation initiative in Honduras called “Growing Hope Globally”.  This fits  this year’s Week Of Compassion theme:  “MORE  THAN  WE  CAN  IMAGINE”.

You and your family are welcome to meet Blaine’s church family on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am (praise and worship service), or at 11 am (blended/ traditional service).  Separate activities are provided at each service for children 3 years old - 1st grade.  Sunday School classes for children 2 years old through adults meet at 9:45 am.  More information is on the church’s website:  blainechristianchurch.org.
