Blanket Collection for Africa! Locust swarms in Africa are enormous this year, causing record-breaking destruction of crops and widespread famine. Thousands of people are flocking into refugee camps seeking food and shelter. As a result, Unto, formerly GAiN, has started an urgent massive collection of blankets, new or gently-used. The collection point will be in the main foyer thru September.
American Gospel at the Drive In! Thursday, August 20 @ 8:15PM – Bring friends and family to see the showing of American Gospel: Christ Alone. Is Christianity Christ + the American dream? American Gospel examines how the prosperity gospel (the Word of Faith movement) has distorted the gospel message, and how this theology is being exported abroad. This feature-length film is the first in a series. Point Drive-in: 3601 Point Twp. Drive, Northumberland.
Featured Read of the Week (Free at the Borrow-a-Book Box & Tract Rack) – Discovery Series: Pray First – We all know people who need a relationship with Jesus. But we may secretly doubt that it will ever happen. Never underestimate the importance of our prayers in reaching those far from God. In Pray First! you’ll find specific ways to pray as well as encouragement to continue to pray on behalf of others.
Fishnet is Meeting every Thursday from 9 AM-12 noon at the home of Linda Beyer. The ladies meet to check and clean eyeglasses that Unto (formerly GAiN) then distributes all over the world. All ladies are welcome. They have a wonderful time of fellowship while getting the eyeglasses ready. This past week, Fishnet delivered 4,500 pairs of cleaned, inspected glasses to the Unto warehouse in Mt. Joy. If you would like to join them, please contact Donna Outt.
Mask Update: Masks are currently available in 4 sizes – Adult, Adult Small, Child and Toddler, however since adult sized masks are available at most stores now, the Fishnet group will be only making toddler and child sized masks. Masks are located outside in the Borrow a Book box. One per person, please. If you aren’t able to come to the church, please call the church and we’ll set up delivery!
Blood Drive Monday – Stop by the BFLC (gym) from 1-6pm. The Red Cross is in need of blood and is taking every precaution to keep everyone safe during their collections.
