This Sunday is a special Sunday. Our church has supported the ministry of Gideons International for decades. The Gideons are a group of Christian volunteers whose ministry is to distribute God’s word at every opportunity. Bibles are placed in hotel and waiting rooms; they are distributed on college campuses, and handed out at major events worldwide. Many lives have been transformed thanks to the sacrificial work of Gideon members and donors.
If you have any prayer requests or questions, please us the link in this worship program or the pew cards available in the seat backs in front of you.

Who are the Gideons?
We are a body of believers dedicated to making the Word of God available to everyone and, together with the local church, reaching souls for Christ.
The Gideons International is the result of a meeting between two men who wished to band commercial travelers together for evangelism. What began in 1908 as an Association of Christian businessmen placing Bibles in hotel rooms has evolved into an expanding mission to provide Scriptures to all people in nearly every facet of life. Today, we have taken more than 2 billion Scriptures in more than 95 languages to 200 countries, territories, and possessions across the globe.
We exist as an advocate for the lost, to bring them the saving knowledge of the Word through not only placing and distributing Scriptures, but also through personal witnessing and by associating together for service. As a united force for the Gospel, we remain rooted in tradition, but we operate under the firm belief that anyone can be a valuable asset to this invaluable cause. We provide many opportunities to partner with us through either prayer or financial support. Join us, and let's spread the Good News.
