MILTON BUS DRIVERS GET MUGGED!
Milton’s 15 bus drivers received an insulated travel mug on Wednesday Oct 17th in order to bless them and thank them for taking care of our kids.  Each mug was filled with a $5 DD card, candy and a card from the three churches (Cornerstone, New Life and United Church).  This is one of the projects we collaborated on through Convoy of Hope.

Father Heart Healing Ministry
TRAINING SEMINAR
Sat., Oct. 21
8:30 am – 4:00 pm
United Church of Milton
51 Main Street, Milton VT
The Father Heart Healing Rooms Open on October 30th 7-8:30 pm
The International Association of Healing Rooms is under the directorship of Reverend Cal Pierce, a man called by God to re-dig the healing wells of John G. Lake in Spokane, Washington.  God then expanded his vision to see healing rooms in every city around the world.  The Father’s Heart Healing Rooms at The United Church of Milton is part of that vision.
The Father’s Heart Healing Room Ministry is not restricted to the team here at The United Church of Milton but is welcoming to all as it is Our Father’s Heart to bring His sons and daughters into true unity as we unite to see His Kingdom come and His Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  There is no sickness in Heaven.
It is our desire to train, equip, heal, and release believers into the Healing Ministry according to

MARK 16:17
And these signs will follow those that believe:  In My Name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues, they will take up serpents, and if they drink anything deadly it will by no means harm them, they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.
If your heart-cry is “GOD SEND ME!” then please join us for training.  We need dedicated Spirit filled Christians with a calling to minister to the sick through the laying on of hands.
COST is $35.00 plus $12 for the workbook.
For sign-up Email: 
fathershearthr@aol.com

For more information, you may call Father’s Heart Healing Rooms:  866 526-3960

TEEN CHALLENGE NEWS
With overdose on the rise and women’s rights being violated every day, Teen Challenge eagerly anticipates the opening a Vermont’s Women’s Home for adult women. This home will address the overlap of addiction, coercion into sex slavery, and/or other life controlling issues.  Vermont has a great need for a women’s long-term residential program since 41% of those seeking help in Vermont alone are women and this type of care has been on the decline.
They anticipate opening the doors in the Spring of 2018.
For more information please go to tcvermongwomen.org.
