Your Change Can Change
a Child's Life

Time to Fill Worthy Student Change Buckets

It's simple . . . each evening you empty your pockets or purse of your loose change and toss it in your Worthy Student Change Bucket. Don't have one? You'll find them on the tables in the church hall. That change adds up quickly and helps to fund Springtown's Worthy Student Fund. That money makes a difference in the lives of students and their moms & dads -- lifting the sometimes difficult burden of paying for attending our Adventist Schools.

Two Good Books!

Hiding in the Light: Why I Risked Everything to Leave Islam and Follow Jesus

A riveting story ripped from recent headlines, Rifqa Bary tells her personal experience of risking her life to become a Christian. The book's drama is matched only by the inspiration of her bold faith. This is one book you'll find hard to put down.

Flash: The Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me About Life Faith, and Second Chances

After the drama of Hiding in the Light, Flash is a lighter read with all the charm, humor and inspiration a homeless donkey can muster. This exquisitely written book will lift your spirits and show you how God moves in everyday life.
Both books can be found at Barnes & Nobles (if you like to hold a real book) or in all e-book reader formats.
