Blanket America Ministries, Inc. PDF Print E-mail

Is an outreach effort begun by one church seeking to be obedient to God’s call to love our neighbors as ourselves. This ministry has grown, and reaches the Appalachian areas giving free new coats and blankets to the needy.


The LGBC brotherhood in conjunction with the Blanket America Ministries, Inc. will be distributing free new coats and blankets!

Saturday, November 1, 2014
From 8 am to 12 noon

 

Tell your friends, family and neighbors who are in need! Individuals must be present to receive a new coat or a blanket.

 

Volunteers are needed to be on hand to assist the Blanket America Ministry staff.


Times that volunteers are needed for this upcoming event:
7:00 am to 12 noon
7:00 am – 9:45 am
9:15 am to 12 noon


The only way this ministry can be successful is for our church to pull together and reach out to these individuals.

 
Trunk n' Treat PDF Print E-mail

Friday, October 31 @ 6 pm - 8 pm

Tell your family and friends to join us in the parking lot for a night of fun and candy. We need people to park a car and give children candy from the trunk. This is an amazing way to meet people and invite them to church!! Lots and Lots of fun!


Prayers and Candy Needed!!

If you are unable to pass out candy at our Trunk n’ Treat event, you can still be a part of the outreach by doing two things…


1. Pray! Pray that God will lead many children to the event and let them and their families feel welcome so that they might return and learn more about God’s wonderful love!


2. We always need more candy!!! The candy goes fast so any donation will be greatly appreciated!  Please drop the candy off at the church office.

 
A Message From Our Pastor PDF Print E-mail

Dear Church Family,


Carolyn and I want to thank you so much for the kind words, cards, and other expressions of kindness, shared with us this month. I am humbled, but very appreciative of your love. We are finishing our second month of serving the Lord with you and we are truly enjoying it. As I am writing this, our church is getting ready for Trunk ‘n Treat and the Blanket America project. What opportunities God is giving us to share His love.


As I pondered these opportunities before us and others still to come in future days, I was reminded of that verse in Isaiah 6:8, "Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, 'Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?' Then I said, 'Here am I. Send me!”


Did you play sports as a kid? I did and loved it. If you played any organized sports through your school or a league of some kind, you probably, at one time or another, had the unwanted experience of “riding the bench.” Obviously, if you loved the sport you were playing, you were chomping at the bit for the coach to put you in. As the famous song, "Centerfield," by John Fogerty says, “Put me in, Coach. I’m ready to play."

When it comes to the Lord’s team, are you chomping at the bit to get out there for Jesus? Isaiah surely was. When the Lord asked the question of who would go for the King of kings, Isaiah’s hand shot up. “Put me in, Lord. I’m ready to go anywhere and do anything for You.” And God responded by selecting him as His spokesman to Judah for fifty years. Isaiah was ready, willing, and eager to play. How about you?


The sad reality is that many Christians are simply Sunday morning bench warmers … and they don’t seem to be too bothered by that fact! When the Lord says, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” there is silence from so many. Is there silence from you?


Remember, Christianity is not a spectator sport. God did not save us to sit, soak, sour, and stink. He saved us to serve. He wants us to get in the game and put our spiritual gifts into practice … whatever those gifts may be.


Be honest. Are you sitting on the spiritual sidelines? Our Coach, the Lord Jesus Christ, wants to put you in the game. He wants to use your life to make a difference in His kingdom.


You may say, “But, I don’t have the ability!” Well, here is a great truth. God is not looking for people with ability. He is looking for people with availability. God wants people just like you to say, “Here I am, Lord. Use me, Lord, as You see fit.” That is a prayer God longs to answer.


May God bless you! I hope to see you and your family in church this coming Lord’s Day!


Pastor Rick
