Handcrafted Olive Wood

Looking for a way to help make a difference in the lives of some families who have been caught up in the war in the Holy Lands in addition to upholding them in prayer?

Proceeds go to the artisan families distributed through Bethlehem Bible College. Items availble in the Gathering Area in between services on Sunday and in the Multimedia Coordinator's office Tuesday through Thursday.
