“Christ is our Message….The Bible is Our Text”
 
 2018
AUGUST MISSION FOCUS
The August Mission Focus will be collecting backpacks for kids in the foster care system.  The backpacks are used for the child to keep their belongings in (rather than a trash bag) when they enter the foster care system.  It is something to call their own when their life is in upheaval.  There will be a tub below the missions board for your donations.  Thanks for caring and sharing with "the least of these".
 

 

MARCH MISSION FOCUS
Our March Mission Focus will be collecting “Birthday Cake” bags for the Hancock County Food Bank. For each bag, include a cake mix, a can of frosting, and a  box/package of candles. The Food Bank gives these out to those who wouldn’t otherwise have a cake for a child’s birthday. Thanks for giving hope to those who need encouragement and the Love of Jesus.

Bible Training—FRBC Support $1200 The Jauchens’ main area of ministry is to train pastors to teach the Scriptures in a clear and life changing way. They host workshops to reinforce, train, motivate and encourage pastors and teachers to greater faith and  ministry.
At the present time they are working on their first three training workshops of 2018. One is to Colombia and the other two in Mexico. More than 26,000 people were killed in Mexico last year, largely due to drug wars.  Please keep John in prayer as he continues treatment for prostate cancer which was diagnosed last summer.

Diego & Louisa Arboleda - Colombia
New Tribes Missions - Training Missionaries Annual FRBC Support: $2400 Recently, Diego had the opportunity to teach a missions class in Buenaventura, a major port town 3 hours away. Those taking the class were very eager to learn. In August, Diego went on a missions trip to the Nasa Tribe where Diego & the team were able to teach the Bible & give them agricultural tips to help with their crops. Diego & Louisa have been asked to work with the Yanacona tribe. 1200 of the 30,000 people live in Cali & desperately need to hear the Gospel. Pray God would open the door to form good relationships with those in their community.
