This Week’s Need to Know – 06/28/2018

This Sunday starts a five week journey through the seven churches of Revelation.  We’ll take a look at what Jesus had to say directly to these churches through the Apostle John.  While the message was for them specifically, there is much for us to learn both personally, and as a church body.  You can prepare for this Sunday’s lesson by reading Revelation 2:1-11.  Pastor Aaron will introduce this series and teach us principles from the messages to the churches at Ephesus and at Smyrna.   Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 in the sanctuary as we learn from the mistakes, failures, and successes of the seven churches in Revelation.

BLESSING BASKETS
Due to our current building project, this year’s VBS has been changed to a Family Movie Night that will be hosted by us at Hoberman Park in Lock Haven.  Invitations are being mailed out to the surrounding community, and we are preparing a volunteer team to help with this event.  Our goal is to be able to introduce our church body to the community, provide blessing baskets to as many people as possible and invite them to join us for worship at Big Woods Bible Church. There are several ways you can help.  If you would like to volunteer, contact Charlotte Conser (cconser1@comcast.net).  We have a goal of handing out 100 blessing baskets to families that attend from the surrounding community.  A shopping list is provided below, or you can donate the cost of the basket ($15) in any of our regular offerings (designate your gift “VBS Blessing Basket”), donate online at our e-giving site, or swipe your credit/debit card in the GivePlus+ Sidekick giving kiosk located in the Fellowship Area.

RECURRING GIVING
