Thank you, Texas Baptists men and women, for showing up in force to support the Books for the Border & Beyond preschool reading fair at City Church, Amarillo. Your enthusiasm for the project blessed 26 children, and equipped parents and families to read together at home.
Thank you, City Church, for allowing us the opportunity to serve alongside of you for one morning. Your ongoing ministry to the people of Amarillo inspires us.
At the reading fair, children progressed through three stations where they picked out books, were read to by volunteers, and each picked out a colorful wooden bookcase to decorate with stickers. The children toted their books in cloth bags, funded by the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions.
Literacy Connexus places books and Bibles in homes to encourage and equip parents to read to their children, and to give families access to God’s Word.
Our mission is helping churches help people with literacy needs.
We appreciate all who helped accomplish this mission in Amarillo.
