Tonight is local mission’s night at 6 PM in the BFLC.  Howard Long will share about his ministry at the Buckhorn Truck Stop Chapel.  
Aemon Shoff will also share about his plan to provide food here in Danville, using a trailer that can be moved around town.  Please bring a dessert to share and come learn about these two ministries close to home. 

Spring Business Meeting ~ Wednesday, April 29, at 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary. Be sure to come to our quarterly church gathering to be informed on our ministries and finances and to be updated on some of the input gleaned from our recent Mini-Flock Fellowships.  One major point of discussion will be about our Sunday morning schedule. 

  1. Do we need to adjust our service times to better accomplish our Mission of being “A Community in Christ, Reaching our Community for Christ?
  2. Why or Why not?
  3. What would be the best schedule to accomplish this?

Please be praying for the “unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” in our discussion and plan on attending Wednesday night. 


M & M tubes are available for you to take this morning.  Each tube holds up to 56 quarters or $14 which will be used to purchase rice, beans and seeds for GAiN Warehouse.  A trip to GAiN to help pack these items will be scheduled the week of June 15th.  Please return the M & M tubes June 7th & 14th.   Please save small soup cans for a future mission’s project.  These can be placed in the marked tub in the chapel hallway. 


All volunteers who have direct contact with children & youth in our church need to complete the state mandated clearances.
