Good Tuesday Morning, Church Family!
Are you "signing up" as your charge this week? Tickets for the Cloverton concert (see our website), helping for Thanksgiving baskets (in the church lobby), and attending the information meeting for Bill Hunter's cancer care ministry (this Sunday after second service)...
I also want to share with you a great opportunity to give and partner with a church in northern California that is helping with the relief effort following the fire that destroyed the town of Paradise. I've spoken with Fred Woods, the pastor of Pursuit Christian Church in Oroville, CA. Our contact with this church is Brandon and Tirzah Farmer who attended there while they were in the area.
Pursuit Church had seven families who lost their homes in Paradise, and they are serving the community in many ways, including becoming a shelter facility. This process will take more than 2 years and they are bracing for a long and difficult journey.
We would like to partner with them by receiving funds to send to them next Monday. If you would like to help, please make your donation to VanChurch (earmarked for Paradise, CA relief) by this coming Sunday (11/18). We will then send those funds on to Pursuit Church for them to disburse as needed. What a great opportunity to share the burden with these brothers and sisters and demonstrate the heart of Christ!
