Sojourner Truth Ministry has soooooo many children that visit us
during the week.   We have decided that we would like to do a
Vacation Bible School again.  It will be held the week of
August 15th – 19th, with the closing program on Sunday the  21st.



We could sure use your help.  There are so many great VBS church programs being shared every year in our local community.   We would graciously like to ask if any of the churches could help us out.  If your  church has Vacation Bible School materials left from this year, or even a past year, that we could use, please let us  know.  If your church could also assist on one of the nights during the week, your shared experiences will be greatly appreciated.

This could be a new mission project for your church as well as providing the Saturday lunches here at STM.  Please pass this information on to your fellow local community churches.  Time is short and we need to be planning soon.

Please contact Pastor Velinda Webb Smith at:  (570-323-1797 or 570-971-7117). 

Thanks to everyone for your help.  Hoping to hear from all of our devoted church supporters.  We send love from STM.




In the last several months, our afternoon snack program has almost doubled.  Praise the Lord.  We are in desperate need of quart size bags for the healthy snacks that we give to the children after school.  They can be any kind, or brand.  Thanks to all for your continued support and help.
