|Message for folks who come to the Wednesday night Fellowship Dinner: This week there will be no prepared meal here at the church. Please stop and pick up your family’s dinner and bring it to the church to eat. There will still be fellowship time, drinks available, and a King Cake for dessert.
Natasha Clapaniuc (kla-pa-NYUK) directs the Restoration Department of Beginning of Life in Moldova where she has served for 14 years. Her ministry includes the House of Change, a rehabilitation and restoration center for girls and women who have been trafficked and sexually exploited. She also co-directs the camp Global Women teams have participated in for the past 5 years. Global Women has supported the work of Beginning of Life for nine years.
Natasha will be our guest at Crosscreek during the Wednesday evening service, March 12. She and Cindy Dawson will share stories from this work going on through Beginning of Life. Come and meet this amazing woman and learn how God is using Crosscreek’s support of Global Women to touch and encourage lives of women in Moldova through the efforts of Natasha and Beginning of Life.
