In honor of Child Abuse Prevention month, we are collecting new and gently used teddy bears and other stuffed animals to be shared with children who are in crisis. Bring your donations to the collection play pens, located in the hospitality area and in the Family Life Center. This is a wonderful learning opportunity for children to practice loving others by going through their own stuffed animal collection to pick out some "lovies" to share with children in need.

The bears will be blessed during Children's Time at all three worship services on Sunday, April 29.

Note: Teddy bears that are too well-loved will be donated to the Austin zoo, and small animals are kept to be used at the Worship Gear shelf to keep kids company in worship.
