We are collecting hams NOW with plans to deliver them the week of April 9. Bring a Ham and Bless a Family!! The hams will be brought to Black Forest Cares food pantry at the Black Forest Lutheran Church.
First Step Preschool is a ministry of BFCC and as such we want to encourage and support the staff, students, and their families. As part of reaching this goal, BFCC will be gifting a Bible to each of the “graduating” preschool students this May. If you would like to make a donation toward this project, please label it “Bibles.”
Having just finished collecting for One Great Hour of Sharing, our next 5-for-5 will be Strengthen the Church (STC), which will be collected during the month of May, finishing on Pentecost Sunday (June 4th).
We received a grant from RMCUCC! The “in the Mud” Grant we applied for gives BFCC $1,000 to work with La Puente. This means that we will be more involved with helping with this important mission, including planning more trips and providing more assistance for whatever La Puente needs. We have begun conversation with La Puente director Lance Cheslock for ideas, and we welcome ideas from the congregation as well. See this youtube video for a taste of what La Puente is all about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7zRIovIqJg
New Missions outreach opportunity:
