There were nine (9) who received certificates (plus a little cash) for their perfect attendance in Sunday School during the Fall quarter.  Congratulations!

COGWC wants to thank the guys from Chads Hope who presented the church with a beautiful plaque (2 Corinthians 6:16) last night in appreciation of the love that's been shown to them by our church folks.  Thank you so much!  You guys are special to us, too!

Kendale Reed received his graduation certificate on Thursday, November 1, during the Chad's Hope Banquet held at the EKU Building in Manchester.  Kendale is an excellent example of the great work that is being done through Chad's Hope Teen/Adult Challenge in Manchester.  He has overcome many past struggles with God's help, and has become a great inspiration and hope to many.  Kendale speaks, when invited, and gives his testimony of how God brought him back to life and restored him to live a victorious, productive life.  He and Michelle are blessed beyond measure and plan to march forward together as a light to his family and friends.  CONGRATS, Kendale!  We're so proud of you!
