Hippo Valley Christian Mission

From Your Preacher


The Hippo Valley Christian Mission has opened a Thrift Store in Grayson, KY, to generate income to help with the orphanage they support in Zimbabwe. Since we (CCLC) are supporters of the HVCM, we want to be a part of this effort. We will be collecting items the entire month of September for this project. You can bring these items to CCLC on Sundays or you can call Dennis Kimbrough (651-261-1910) to arrange deliveries on Mondays. When Al Serhal (President of HVCM) is with us on our Missions Sunday, October 1st, he will return home with hopefully LOTS of items to help the mission.

Here is a list of items that they can accept:

  • Household items/small appliances, lamps, rugs
  • DVDs, books, video games – (NO electronics like old computers)
  • Glassware, dishes, cookware, collectibles
  • Clean clothing of all sizes, shoes, boots, purses
  • Sheets, comforters, curtains, drapery, tablecloths
  • Toys, games, dolls, puzzles (No stuffed animals)
  • Tables/chairs, dressers, end tables, nightstands (NO mattresses/pillows)
  • Craft items of all kinds, fabric, craft organizers
  • Outdoor sporting goods – fishing equipment, water sports
  • Garden/yard tools, patio furniture, tools
  • Televisions (ONLY Flat screens – No old heavy back TVs)
  • NO upholstered furniture or large appliances
  • Hangers and store plastic bags are always needed

 Gospel Lads Concert

I know that you will see and hear this announcement in other places, but I just want to encourage you to be present on Saturday evening, September 9th for the gospel music concert by the Gospel Lads. It will be a great evening of worship through music. You won’t be disappointed. This is a special event that is worthy of your support and your effort to invite your friends and neighbors. I hope that you will make every effort to be present on that evening. This group is good!

Al Serhal

Al, who is the President of the Hippo Valley Christian Mission in Zimbabwe, Africa, preached last year for our annual Missions Sunday. He is back again this year by popular demand. This will be on Sunday, October 1st.   You don’t want to miss hearing all that God is doing in Zimbabwe, Africa.

Dustin will be preaching at CCLC on September 10 and 17th. Don’t miss these dates!   I will be on my annual family fishing trip in Minnesota.
