Efrem: THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE

SAYS THE U.S. WILL MOVE

ITS EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM

BY THE END OF 2019.

HE MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT

IN ISRAEL'S KNESSET,

PROMPTING PROTESTS FROM

PALESTINIANS.

SEVERAL ARAB LAWMAKERS

SHOUTED AT THE VICE

PRESIDENT, AND OTHERS HELD

SIGNS THAT SAID JERUSALEM

IS THE CAPITAL OF

PALESTINE.

THE VICE PRESIDENT ALSO

ANNOUNCED THE U.S. PLANS

TO PULL OUT OF THE 2015

IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL.

> AN 8.2 MAGNITUDE

EARTHQUAKE HIT OFF THE

ALASKA COAST ON TUESDAY

MORNING.

THE EARTHQUAKE PROMPTEDED PROMPTED A

TSUNAMI WARNING FOR THE

ENTIRE WEST COAST.

> A GROUP OF ATHEISTS IS

SUING THE DEPARTMENT OF

HOWCHHOUSING AND URBAN

DEVELOPMENT.

TWO EIGHT ATHEIST GROUPS ARE

BRINGING THE LAWSUIT.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

HAS HELD BIBLE STUDY EACH

WEEK, WHICH IS LED BY A

FORMER NBA PLAYER.

WE WILL HAVE MORE ON THESE

STORIES LATER IN THE

"NEWSWATCH."

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS LEARN

MORE BY VISITING OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

> THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS AFTER

A THREE-DAY SHUTDOWN, BUT

THE DEAL ONLY LASTED ABOUT

THREE WEEKS.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON HAS MORE

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: AFTER DAYS

OF ROUND-THE-CLOCK

NEGOTIATIONS, LAWMAKERS

FINALLY REACHED AN

AGREEMENT TO FUND THE

GOVERNMENT FOR THE NEXT

THREE WEEKS.

THE HOUSE VOTED MONDAY

NIGHT TO END THE STANDOFF

AFTER THE SENATE DID SO

EARLIER IN THE DAY.

WITH A POINTLESS,

DAMAGING PARTISAN

THEATRICS OF THIS

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN BEHIND

US, SERIOUS AND BIPARTISAN

NEGOTIATIONS CAN RESUME.

Reporter: SENATE

DEMOCRATS AGREED TO

SUPPORT A TEMPORARY

STOP-GAP SPENDING MEASURE

THAT REOPENS THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT, BUT ONLY UNTIL

FEBRUARY 8th, AFTER

McCONNELL PROMISEDED THE

SENATE WILL TAKE UP AN

IMMIGRATION BILL, WHICH

INCLUDES PROTECTIONS FOR

THE DREAMERS.

NOW THOSE TALKS CAN GET

GOING AGAIN.

WHETHER THEY BEAR FRUIT IS

UP TO ALL OF US.

Reporter: LIBERAL

ACTIVISTS BLASTED THE

DEAL, SAYING THAT THE

DEMOCRATS HAVE CAVED IN,

WITH SOME CALLING IT THE

SCHUMER SELLOUT.

BUT DEMOCRATIC LEADERS SAY

McCONNELL HAS ASSURED

THEM THAT EVEN IF THERE IS

NO VOTE ON AN OVERALL

IMMIGRATION BILL, THE

SENATE WILL STILL VOTE ON

A BILL, FOCUSED ON

PROTECTING THE DREAMERS.

McCONNELL SAYS A

BIPARTISAN GROUP OF

SENATORS ARE TO THANK FOR

BRINGING THE SHUTDOWN

CRISIS TO AN END.

BUT IF LAWMAKERS DON'T

COMPROMISE ON SOME BIG

ISSUES BY FEBRUARY 8, THE

GOVERNMENT COULD RUN OUT

OF MONEY ONCE AGAIN.

> REPORTING FROM

WASHINGTON, ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: DURING HIS

SECOND FULL DAY IN ISRAEL,

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE

VISITED TWO OF JERUSALEM'S

MOST REVERED SITES, THE

HOLOCAUST MUSEUM AND THE

WESTERN WALL.

AND HE IS RECEIVING HIGH

PRAISE FOR A KNESSET

SPEECH THAT WARMED THE

HEARTS OF MANY ISRAELIS.

JOHN WAGGI HAS MORE.

John: THE FIRST

OFFICIAL STOP ON TUESDAY

FOR VICE PRESIDEN VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE

WAS THE ISRAEL'S

PRESIDENT'S HOUSE.

HE PUT EUROPE ON NOTICE

THAT CHANGES ARE COMING TO

THE NUCLEAR DEAL WITH

IRAN.

WE ARE SENDING A SIGNAL

TO OUR EUROPEAN ALLIES

THAT THE TIME HAS COME FOR

CHANGES IN THE IRAN

NUCLEAR DEAL, THAT WILL

ENSURE THAT THE SUNSET

PROVISIONS IN THE DEAL ARE

COMPLETELY ELIMINATED, AND

THAT PUNITIVE SANCTIONS

WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR MANY

YEARS TO COME TO PREVENT

IRAN FROM OBTAINING A

NUCLEAR WEAPON, AND YOU

HAVE OUR COMMITMENT TO

WORK CLOSELY WITH OUR

ALLIES AROUND THE WORLD TO

ACHIEVE THAT.

Reporter: ON ALL OF

HIS STOPS, PENCE ENHANCED

HIS REPUTATION AS A FRIEND

OF ISRAEL.

HE GRACEFULLY HANDLEDED HANDLED

MONDAY'S PROTESTS, AND HIS

SPEECH DREW PRAISE BOTH

FROM THE MEDIA AND THE

PRIME MINISTER.

YOU SAW PEOPLE STANDING

UP AGAIN AND AGAIN

APPLAUDING YOU, APPLAUDING

THE PRINCIPLES THAT GUIDE

YOUR POLICY, APPLAUDING

THE GENUINE FRIENDSHIP

THAT COMES FROM YOUR

HEART.

Reporter: IT SEEMS TO

BE A PERSONAL PILGRIMAGE,

AS MUCH AS A POLITICAL

TOUR.

THAT IS MOST EVIDENT AT

YADBASHEL, THE HOLOCAUST

MEMORIAL.

HE CONCLUDED HIS VISIT

WITH PRAYERS AT THE

WESTERN WALL, PERHAPS A

FITTING END TO A TRIP

DESIGNED AS A SEARCH FOR

THE THREADS OF PEACE IN

THE HOLY CITY AND THE

MIDDLE EAST.

> JOJOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: MAJOR HIGHWAYS

ARE SHUT DOWN, SCHOOLS ARE

CLOSED, AND SOME AIR

TRAVEL, GROUNDED.

HERE IS CHARLENE AARON.

Charlene: BLIZZARD

QUESTIONS ARE MAKING FOR

TREACHEROUS CONDITIONS

ALONG THE HEARTLAND.

ROAD CONDITIONS ARE

EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS.

WE ARE ADVISING THAT YOU

DO NOT GO OUT IN THESE

CONDITIONS.

Charlene: THE LATEST

WINTER STORM DUMPED SNOW,

FREEZING RAIN, AND SLEET

ON THE U.S. IN THE

NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND.

EVEN SNOWPLOWS ARE HAVING

A HARD TIME.

THE TRAFFIC IS NOT

MOVING ANYWHERE.

Charlene: IN PARTS OF

NEBRASKA, THE VISIBILITY

HAS BEEN SO LOW, PLOWS HAD

TO BE PULLED OFF THE

ROADS.

70 MILES OF INTERSTATE 29

WERE CLOSED AT THE

IOWA/SOUTH DAKOTA BORDER.

THIS SPINOUT IN SIOUX

FALLS CAUGHT ON A DASH

CAM.

MORE THAN 10 INCHES OF

SNOW HAS ALREADY FALLEN IN

PARTS OF NEBRASKA.

AND DOZENS OF SCHOOL

DISTRICTS CANCELLED

CLASSES, ALL FUN AND GAMES

FOR KIDS.

WE'RE HAVING A SNOWBALL

FIGHT AND JUMPING IN THE

SNOW, AND THEN WE DUG TO

SEE HOW FAR DOWN IT WAS.

Reporter: AND?

IT WAS REALLY FAR.

Reporter: PLANES ON

RUNWAYS AT ST. PAUL'S

AIRPORT IN MINNEAPOLIS,

SET AT A STANDSTILL.

MORE THAN 500 FLIGHTS

CANCELLED, THE SAME FOR

MUCH OF THE MIDWEST.

WE'RE STUCK HERE AT

LEAST TOMORROW MORNING.

Reporter: AND PARTS

OF TEXAS AND MISSOURI HAVE

ALSO BEEN HIT BY HARD

WEATHER, AND TORNADOES AND

WINDS OF UP TO 110 MILES

PER HOUR REPORTED IN THE

LONE STAR STATE.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD,

THE PRESCRIPTION DRUG THAT

IS SUPPOSED TO GIVE USERS

A SPECIAL EDGE, BUT

INSTEAD IT IS SENDING THEM

OVER THE EDGE.

SEE WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

STOP ADDERALL ABUSE.

Efrem: THE SEX ABUSE

SCANDAL SURNLDIN SURROUNDING THE

FORMER U.S. NATIONAL

GYMNASTICS TEAM DOCTOR HAS

LED THE THE TOP LEADERSHIP

RESIGNING.

PAUL PERRILLO ALONG WITH

SOME BOARD MEMBERS

RESIGNED ON YESTERDAY.

THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE SAID

THE OLYMPIC FAMILY FAILED

THESE ATHLETES, AND WE

MUST CONTINUE TO TAKE

EVERY STEP NECESSARY TO

ENSURE THIS NEVER HAPPENS

AGAIN.

DR. LARRY NASSAR PLED

GUILTY SEX ASSAULT

CHARGES.

> 14 MILLION YOUNG

PEOPLE BETWEEN THE AGES OF

20 AND 40 TAKE ADDERALL,

MANY THINKING IT HARMLESS,

BUT THAT ISN'T ALWAYS THE

CASE.

LORIE JOHNSON SHOWS US ONE

YOUNG MAN WHO'S ADDERALL

ADDICTION LED TO SUICIDE.

Lorie: HE LIVED A

STORYBOOK LIFE, STRAIGHT

"A"s, A STAR ATHLETE,

AND LOTS OF FRIENDS.

AND THEN HE STARTED TAKING

THE PRESCRIPTION DRUG

ADDERALL.

IT CHANGED HIS WHOLE

PROCESS.

Lorie: OVER THE

COURSE OF THREE YEARS,

RICHARD'S LIFE SPIRALLED

OUT OF CONTROL, UNTIL HIS

FATHER FOUND HIM HANGING

IN HIS CLOSET.

THE WORST POSSIBLE

THING YOU CAN IMAGINE.

I'M HERE WITH THIS GREAT

KID THAT HAD EVERYTHING

GOING FON HIM, EVERYTHING,

SMART, GOOD-LOOKING KID,

AND THE ADDERALL JUST

DESTROYED HIM.

Lorie: ADDERALL IS

PRESCRIBED FOR PEOPLE WITH

ATTENTION DEFICIT

DISORDER, OR A.D.D.

IT WORKS ON THE BRAIN TO

HELP THEM FOCUS BETTER.

BUT SOME PEOPLE, WHO DO

NOT HAVE A.D.D., BELIEVE

ADDERALL MAKES THEM FOCUS

BETTER, TOO, AND SO THEY

TAKE IT TO HELP THEM

STUDY.

RICHARD HAD MENTIONED

TO ME THAT HE HAD GOTTEN

AN ADDERALL FROM ONE OF

HIS FRIENDS AT EXAM TIME.

Lorie: HE IS NOT

ALONE.

AN ESTIMATED ONE IN FIVE

COLLEGE STUDENTS USE IT,

LARGELY UNAWARE OF THE

PHYSICAL DANGER AND THAT

IT IS A FELONY TO USE

SOMEONE ELSE'S

PRESCRIPTION.

HERE IN THE LIBRARY

DURING THE EXAM WEEK,

PEOPLE ARE ASKING EACH

OTHER -- SAYING, I REALLY

NEED AN ADDERALL PILL.

PEOPLE DO OFFER IT TO EACH

OTHER.

IT IS NOT A BIG DEAL TO

PEOPLE ON CAMPUS.

Lorie: SOON RICHARD

WANTED HIS OWN SUPPLY.

IF YOU GO TO A DOCTOR

AND YOU JUST TELL THEM YOU

HAVE THE SIGNS OF A.D.D.,

WITHOUT ANY CHECKING,

THEY'LL JUST GIVE YOU A

PRESCRIPTION.

THAT'S BASICALLY WHAT HE

DID.

Lorie: DR. GRETCHEN

WATSON, A LESS THA A CLINICAL

PSYCHOLOGIST, SAYS IT IS

EASY TO FAKE A.D.D.

IF YOU TALK TO MOST

COLLEGE STUDENTS, THEY

COULD PROBABLY TELL YOU A

DOCTOR, OR TWO OR THREE,

IN TOWN TO GO TO, AND WHAT

TO SAY AND DO IN ORDER TO

GET THE PRESCRIPTION.

Lorie: ADDERALL IS AN

AMPHETAMINE, SIMILAR TO

COCAINE.

YOU CAN GET A EUPHORIC

FEELING.

Lorie: AFTER COLLEGE,

RICHARD MOVED BACK HOME

WITH HIS PARENTS, AND

CONVINCED TWO DOCTORS TO

GIVE HIM ADDERALL.

RICHARD WOULD BE UP FOR

THREE DAYS IN A ROW,

WALKING THE HOUSE 3:00,

4:00, 5:00 IN THE MORNING,

WIDE AWAKE.

AND THEN HE WOULD CRASH

FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS AND

SLEEP FOR A COUPLE OF

DAYS.

Lorie: THE COUPLE

TRIED TO GET RICHARD'S

DOCTORS TO STOP

PRESCRIBING THE DRUG.

I SAID, YOU KEEP GIVING

ADDERALL TO MY SON AND

YOU'RE GOING TO KILL HIM.

Lorie: BUT RICHARD

WAS OVER 18, AND HIS

DOCTORS SAID LEGALLY HIS

TREATMENT WAS PRIVATE.

THE DOCTOR SAID HE

COULDN'T TALK TO US.

Lorie: RICHARD'S

DOCTORS BOTH INCREASED HIS

DOSE.

YOU CAN BECOME MORE

SERIOUSLY ADDICTED AND

BECOME PSYCHOTIC AND LOSE

THE ABILITY TO THINK

CLEARLY AND DO THINGS THAT

YOU OTHERWISE WOULDN'T DO.

I HAD SEEN HIM, AND HE

WAS ON THE COMPUTER AND HE

HAD JUST PUT LITTLE PIECES

OF SCOTCH TAPE ON HIS

FINGERS BECAUSE HE DIDN'T

WANT THE KEYBOARD TO BE

ABLE TO GET HIS

FINGERPRINTS.

WHY, I DON'T KNOW.

HE WOULD COVER UP THE

CAMERA ON IT BECAUSE HE

FELT THAT PEOPLE COULD BE

WATCHING HIM.

DURING THIS TIME,

RICHARD HAD BECOME MORE

VIOLENT.

WE WERE SCARED OF OUR OWN

SON.

Lorie: NOT LONG AFTER

THAT, RICHARD TOOK HIS

LIFE.

THIS SHOULD HAVE NEVER,

EVER HAVE HAPPENED.

AND IT WAS ADDERALL.

Lorie: PEOPLE

FAMILIAR WITH RICHARD'S

STORY SAY IT ILLUSTRATES

THE NEED FOR STRICTER

GUIDELINES FOR DIAGNOSING

A.D.D., AND FOR TRYING

NON-PHARMACEUTICAL

TREATMENTS BEFORE

PRESCRIBING ADDERALL.

THERE IS NOW CLEAR

EVIDENCE THAT THE

MEDICATION SHOULD BE, IN

MOST INSTANCES, THE LAST

LINE OF DEFENSE AND NOT

THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE.

AND WHAT THE RESEARCH IS

CLEARLY SHOWING IS THAT

OVER THE LONG-TERM, THE

DRUGS ARE NOT AS AFFECTIVE

AS THE BEHAVIORAL

INTERVENTIONS.

Lorie: THE COUPLE

WANTS CHANGES, REQUIRING

DOCTORS TO SEE WHAT OTHER

PRESCRIPTIONS THEY'RE

TAKING, AND REQUIRING THEM

TO NOTIFY PARENTS OF ADULT

CHILDREN WHO ARE IN

DANGER.

THERE WAS INFORMATION

THEY HAD IN THEIR FILE

THAT IF THEY HAD SHARED

WITH US AT THAT TIME, WE

WOULD LIKE TO THINK THINGS

WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT.

THEY NOTED IN HIS FILE

THAT THEY THOUGHT HE WAS

SUICIDAL.

Lorie: THEY SAY

ADDICTS SHOULD FIND A

PROFESSIONAL TO HELP THEM

WEAN OFF OF IT.

ALTHOUGH THE COUPLE CAN'T

GET THEIR SON BACK, THEY

HOPE TELLING THEIR STORY

WILL PREVENT OTHERS FROM

LOSING THEIR LOVED ONES.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: WE THANK THEM

FOR SHARING THAT STORY.

> UP NEXT, 36 MILLION

AMERICANS CAN NOW BE

IDENTIFIED AS "NONE."

SEE WHAT.

Efrem: A GROWING

NUMBER OF AMERICANS DON'T

IDENTIFY WITH ANY

RELIGIOUS GROUP.

SOME CALL THEM "NONES."

THEY MAY NOW DECLARE

THEY'RE NOT PART OF

ANYTHING.

NOW THE QUESTION IS: HOW

CAN THOSE PEOPLE BE

REACHED?

HEATHER SELLS IS ON THIS

STORY.

Heather: AMANDA GREW

UP AS A "NONE."

SHE NEVER WENT TO CHURCH

OR SPOKE WITH ANYONE WHO

DID.

MY MOM ALWAYS TOLD ME

THAT WE DON'T TALK TO

PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN GOD

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE

WEIRD OR THEY'RE

DIFFERENT.

Heather: GREG, ON THE

OTHER HAND, GREW UP GOING

TO CHURCH BUT TOOK A STAND

IN HIGH SCHOOL.

AT THAT POINT I SAID,

I'M DONE WITH CHURCH.

I DON'T WANT TO GO.

I DON'T SEE ANY BENEFIT.

Heather: BOTH CRAIG

AND AMANDA REPRESENT A

GROWING GROUP.

THE PEW RESEARCH CENTER

FOUND THAT ALMOST A

QUARTER OF U.S. ADULTS SAY

THEY EITHER QUESTION GOD'S

EXISTENCE OR THAT THEY'RE

RELIGION IS NOTHING IN

PARTICULAR.

THAT IS UP SIGNIFICANTLY

IN JUST THE LAST 10 YEARS,

WITH THESE "NONES" NOW

REPRESENTING 36 MILLION

AMERICANS.

PEW ALSO FOUND THAT A

THIRD OF YOUNG PEOPLE FALL

INTO THIS GROUP, AND HIGH

NUMBERS LIVE IN THE

NORTHWEST AND NORTHEAST.

SO WHY ARE SO MANY

AMERICANS DISCONNECTING

FROM CHURCH?

WE CAME HERE TO NEW

ENGLAND TO FIND OUT AND TO

LEARN WHAT CHURCHES HERE

ARE DOING TO BRING THEM

BACK.

IT'S A NEW PHENOMENA

THAT WE'RE TRYING TO

UNDERSTAND.

Heather: DR. SHARON

CATCHUM OUTSIDE OF BOSTON

AND OTHER EXPERTS ARE

TRYING TO FIND OUT WHY A

NEW GENERATION IS SO

ANTI-CHURCH.

WHAT WE DO KNOW, THESE

"NONES" DON'T BELIEVE IN

THEIR FAITH ANYMORE OR THE

NEED FOR CHURCH.

MIKE SAYS THAT'S WHAT HE

THOUGHT IN HIS 20s.

IT WAS OKAY, YES, I

BELIEVE IN YOU, GOD, BUT

I'M GOING TO DO THINGS MY

WAY.

AND AS LONG AS I'M A GOOD

PERSON, AND AS LONG AS I

DO ENOUGH GOOD DEEDS, THAT

WILL BE ENOUGH.

Heather: OTHERS SAY

THEY'RE UNSURE ABOUT

SO-CALLED ORGANIZED

RELIGION OR JUST DON'T GO.

CHURCH NEVER CROSSED MY

MIND AS SOMETHING I NEEDED

TO DO.

Heather: CATCHUM

SEEING A BIGGER PICTURE, A

CULTURE IN WHICH PEOPLE AS

CONSUMERS JUST CHURCH

BASED ON WHAT IT PROVIDES

FOR THEIR PERSONAL NEEDS.

WE THEN HAVE THE

AMPLIFICATION OF ME AND

JESUS, AND A REDUCTION OF

THE LARGER UNDERSTANDING

OF WHAT THE COMMUNITY OF

FAITH IS ABOUT.

Heather: ANOTHER PART

OF THE PROBLEM, SAYS

CATCHUM, IS SIMPLY THE

GROWING NUMBER OF CHOICES.

THERE WERE DAYS THAT WE

LIVED IN WHERE COMMUNITIES

WERE GIVEN IN OUR LIVES.

BUT TODAY COMMUNITY IS

VOLUNTARY.

I CAN CHOOSE WHATEVER

CHURCH, WHATEVER SMALL

GROUP, WHATEVER PROGRAM

MEETS MY PERSONAL NEEDS.

Heather: PASTOR CHAD

BRASWELL IS WELL AWARE OF

THOSE WHO ARE DISCONNECTED

BUT SAYS HE IS NOT

DISCOURAGED.

I JUST THINK WHEN TIMES

GET DARKER, LIGHT SHINES

BRIGHTER.

IT IS AN INTERESTING THING

WE'RE SEEING HERE,

BECAUSE, YES, I SEE THE

NUMBERS THAT YOU SEE, BUT

I SEE THIS GROWING HUNGER

AFTER CHRIST.

Heather: MANY

FIRST-TIMERS COMING TO HIS

CHURCH TELL HIM THEIR

EXPERIENCES OF GUILT IN

PREVIOUS CHURCHES HAD

OVERWHELMED GOING TO

CHURCH.

SO MANY CHURCHES PUT

THE FOCUS ON HOPELESSNESS,

RATHER THAN THE HOPE THAT

JESUS GIVES.

A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN'T LIVE

UP TO THAT EXPECTATION OR

THE GUILT OF WHAT THEY'VE

DONE OR WHAT THEY'RE INTO.

Heather: A FOCUS ON

GRACE DREW IN AMANDA HER

FIRST TIME.

SHE REMEMBERS A

CO-WORKER'S INVITATION TO

AN EASTER SERVICE AND HOW

SHE CRIED THROUGHOUT THE

SERVICE.

I WAS SO FREAKED OUT

ABOUT THE ENTIRE MESSAGE.

AND I WAS CRYING.

AND I WENT AND GOT MY

DAUGHTER AND I SAID, WE'RE

NEVER COMING BACK HERE.

AND SHE SAID, MOMMY, I MET

SO MANY NEW FRIENDS.

WE HAVE TO COME BACK.

I LOVE IT HERE.

Heather: TODAY AMANDA

IS INVOLVED IN MULTIPLE

SERVICES AT METRO CHURCH,

AS IS CRAIG.

AT THIS POINT IN MY

LIFE, I COULDN'T IMAGINE

DOING LIFE WITHOUT THIS

GROUP OF PEOPLE.

Heather: THAT DEEP

CONNECTION IS KEY BECAUSE

RESEARCH SHOWS THAT PEOPLE

LONG FOR COMMUNITY AND A

BIGGER PURPOSE THAN JUST

THEMSELVES.

THERE IS NO EASY FIX OR

FORMULA FOR REACHING THOSE

WHO HAVE STEPPED AWAY FROM

CHURCH, BUT A CHURCH THAT

LOVES ITS MEMBERS AND

COMMUNITY IS A GREAT

START.

> REPORTING IN

MASSACHUSETTS, HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: IT IS A GREAT

START, INDEED.

> STAY WITH US, THERE IS

MORE OF CBN "NEWSWATCH"

GREAT THINGS THROUGH YOU.
