Available at the Tract Rack: Special Easter editions from Our Daily Bread as well as the regular quarterly Our Daily Bread (available in large print!).  There are many great tracts & other resources to share with friends, family & co-workers.
Love the Tract Rack? Many, many thanks to Kathleen Fowler who has been lovingly ordering the tracts and organizing them. Kathleen is now looking to pass the baton. If you love spreading the good news and are quite organized, then this would be a cool ministry for you! Please call the church office if you are interested.
