. Donate Your Unneeded Vehicle

Hey, heres a thought coming into the 4th quarter of 2013. If you have a vehicle you dont need that has a clear title - like a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or RV - why not donate it to Word of Life Church? Your donation will be sold to raise money to help fund the work of the church, and youll get a gift letter for the sale amount. Just contact the church office at 816-233-6367 for more information about this great way to help our church.

Lord, we pray that your grace may always precede and follow us, that we may continually be given to good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
