Thousands of prisoners long to know someone cares and they are not forgotten. You can give them hope. Prayer For Prisoners International is a powerful way to lift up “the least of these” through prayer.

Through Amicus International Student Exchange, students from all over the globe come to the United States and live with families who love Christ. During the school year, students also have the opportunity to participate in Young Life area activities. Students are exposed to the Gospel through host family relationships, churches the families attend, and Young Life clubs and camps. Amicus Host Families Needed—Our new website, ylamicus.org has more information.
All over the United States, we need volunteer families who are willing to open their homes and host an Amicus student for one year. If you want to use your gift of hospitality and be a missionary from your own home, this is for you! You can express God’s love through your lifestyle and plug the Amicus student into Young Life and a church in the local community. Students can go back to their home countries with their lives changed and impact their own countries for Christ. Your family will be blessed by the experience. Make an eternal difference in the life of an exchange student. Be a host family!
If interested , please contact Canon City Amicus reps Dyle Knifong at 719-269-0485 or Loren Kolman at 719-371-6040, or call Pastor Jeff at the church office. We would like to provide you with complete information about the Amicus International Student Exchange program and would hope you will consider hosting a student next year.
Sanctity of Human Life 2019
This year marks the 35th year that the Canon City Pregnancy Center has been in operation. Throughout those years, the goal has been to meet the needs of women and their families. In 2018, we have seen more than 2,000 families come through our doors, with needs such as free pregnancy tests, clothing, food, diapers, baby equipment, and other items. Our clients range in age from 14-59 years. This week, we begin the “ Change for Change” drive. If you take one of the baby bottles provided out front, fill it with your loose change, bills or check and return it to the Pregnancy Center, you are helping families in a special way. The money raised through this campaign is used solely for families in Fremont County. If you would like to partner with us and become a monthly supporter, you will find a “Monthly Blessing Booklet” alongside the baby bottles. We hope these will serve as a reminder and an easy way to be a part of the ministry.
Thank you and God Bless
Loaves & Fishes accepts donations throughout the year to help families in our community, but during the cold months their need is always greater.
Each month we are asking for you to shop at the store or in your cupboards for non-perishable food to help stock the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry.
. SEPTEMBER THEME - Baking Month: Cake mixes, muffins, cornbread, cookie mixes. OCTOBER THEME - Warm It Up Month: Chili, soup, crackers of all kinds.

The theme of this book is how God wants believers in Christ to live in the midst of a corrupt culture. The apostle Paul is the author. He addresses various problems within the Corinthian church, including sectarianism, immorality, Christians taking one another to secular courts, marital questions, idolatry and the improper administration of the Lord's Supper. Paul offers the proper use of spiritual gifts and reviews the doctrine of resurrection and includes his parting comments.
