  • Spring Evangelistic Meetings

    Announced by Anonymous on Dec 14 2013

    SPRING EVANGELISTIC SERIES: Amazing Facts evange-list David Steward will be preaching the evangelistic series we have coming up this spring. The meetings will start on February 28th and conclude on April 5th. There is much to be done in preparation for these meetings and one of the most important things that needs to be done is for everyone to be praying about who they can invite to the meetings. God has placed and will place people in your path so that you can be an agent for Him to bring them into a better understanding of Him and His Word. Pray often for the people who you know would benefit from these meetings that God would give you the right opportunity to invite them. Also be praying for the speaker and that prepa-ration for the meetings goes smoothly.

    Bakersfield Bethany Homeless Shelter is in need of 80 toys for this Christmas season. This organization is one of a few shelters in the state of California, which provides shelter for homeless fami-lies and single parents with children. The Hillcrest Women’s Min-istry is collecting toys for children ages 0-10 years.We are in need of: stuffed animals, puzzles, games, coloring books, crayons and books for reading. We are also asking for small toiletry items for gift bags to give the parents: small toothpaste, shampoo, condition-er, hand lotion, soap, toothbrush and washcloth. In addition, the shelter is in need of gently used clothing all sizes for both children and adults. Please place wrapped toys (with a tag indicating item and age range) and all donated items in the Women’s Ministry box in the church foyer. We need all items by December 16, 2012. We thank you for your generosity in this community service.
