Church events

FARMINGTON – Summer worship at Henderson Memorial Baptist Church begins at 9:30 a.m. and includes a children’s story. All are welcome to the Sunday, July 29, service.

Children are learning about prayer at the church this week. The Vacation Bible School has a hot air balloon theme and is based on Psalms.

The children are hoping to raise $250 to purchase a water buffalo through Heifer Project International. A water buffalo will help a family in Asia to “lift off” out of poverty, because a water buffalo can help plow rice paddies, give birth to a calf and provide the family with milk to drink and sell.

Anyone who would like to help with the project should stop by the church with a contribution.

All are welcome to the closing celebration at 11:30 a.m. Friday, July 27. Henderson Memorial is located on the corner of Main and Academy streets. For more information, call 778-2163.
