b. If gift is for International Justice Mission, then you can write the check to Ekklesia Hattiesburg, but put IJM in the memo line
c. Gifts can be mailed to Ekklesia Hattiesburg PO Box 641 Hattiesburg, MS 39403. (must be postmarked 2010 for 2010 tax credit to be given)

We will be giving to the International Justice Mission. Find out more about their work to free young girls from sex trafficing. It takes an average of $15,000 to free one girl. Our goal is to try to raise enough to do just that this Christmas season.

Book Study on Living the Sabbath: Discovering the Rhythms of Rest & Delight Sabbath is one day a week when we should rest from our otherwise harried lives, right? In Living the Sabbath, Norman
Wirzba leads us to a much more holistic and rewarding understanding of Sabbath-keeping. Wirzba shows how Sabbath is ultimately about delight in the goodness that God has made--in everything we do, everyday of the week. With practical examples, Wirzba unpacks what that means for our daily lives at work, in our homes, in our economies, in school, in our treatment of creation, and in church.
