PUNXSUTAWNEYâ Even though Punxsy hasnât seen a lot of snow this winter, there were many children seen as âWhiter Than Snowâ during a recent photo exhibition/fund-raiser for the Punxsutawney Christian School at the Punxsutawney Memorial Library recently.
The exhibition is called âWhiter Than Snow: A Prayer in Pictures,â said Karissa Spencer, childrenâs ministries director for the First Church of God in Punxsy.
Spencer said as part of the childrenâs ministries, the Sunday School staff taught youngsters the salvation message and what it means to be âWhiter Than Snowâ in a spiritual sense.
