Potter Children Home
Established in 1914, the Potter Children's Home & Family Ministries works to be a tool in the hands of supporting churches of Christ and individual Christians to deliver God's justice and mercy to children and families in need. Our Residential Group Care program is at the core of our ministries. This program is for children ages 6-18 years old who are in need of a loving, stable, structured home environment. Our Single Parent Alliance for Raising Kids (SPARK) program allows families to stay together during their recovery from a divorce, desertion or death. The Transitional Living ministry is designed to serve young people ages 18-23 who have little or no support from their families. We also offer foster care and Christian counseling.
Potter Children Home is have a "Food Comodity Drive". Each congregation has been asked to contribute non perishables (listed below). Place items in the collection room beside the "Ministers Office". They will be picked up the week of June 4th. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, Quart Ziplock Bags, Cheerios, Chocolate Pudding Mix and AAA Batteries.
The Bible Is Impossible To Fake
The Bible was written by 40 men during a period of 1,500 years. Most of these writers were not alive at the same time. They could not work together in any direct way. Yet the Bible has one continuing story about Gods love. John 3:16
Our God has awesome power!!! He has preserved His Word all these Centuries so we can know the TRUTH.
