On July 27, 2016 lives were changed forever when a beautiful toddler in our congregation, 14 month old Harper Rodden was killed. One of the many ways that Harper brought joy into the world, was through her incredible hugs. She would just grab hold of you tight and hug you like she meant it with all of her heart. We are sharing Harper's Hugs by inviting people who attend our Live Nativity event or who worship with us this Advent to purchase and bring a teddy bear to the church. We will dedicate them in worship with the Rodden family on Dec. 18th and then deliver them after the service to Children's Mercy hospital where Harper and her family received incredible care. The bears will be given to children who need a bear to hug and bring them comfort in a difficult time.
