Newsletter – July 5, 2020

We hope you all have had a wonderful weekend celebrating our country’s heritage and the freedoms we enjoy. We do not have any new announcements to make at this point, but there will be some new announcements coming later this month.
 
We hope that you will continue to gather with us for our separate men’s service today and women’s service next Sunday. The seniors are continuing to meet at 10:00 am on Tuesdays each week.

Bottle Deposits for Missions

Is your garage filling up with pop cans? Don’t want to wait in endless lines when you can finally return those cans? Let us worry about storing and returning your cans and we will use the bottle deposit returns for Pastor Chris’ trip to Sri Lanka.

If you would be interested in donating your cans, please contact Pastor Jonathan and he will arrange a time with you to bring your cans to the church building.

Regathering Details

The details about our plan to regather can be found here: https://www.bbgb.org/regathering/
 
We are praying for you and we are all earnestly looking forward to day that we can regather and praise our Lord Jesus Christ for his work in our midst through this unique season of life.

Newsletter – June 7, 2020

Disaster Relief Ministry in Gladwin, MI

We had an opportunity to send 10 people to Gladwin to help with Disaster Relief in the areas affected by the recent flooding. There is still a significant amount of work that still needs to be completed to help the people of Gladwin County (and beyond) to recover from the devastation of the floods. If you are able to help on Saturday, June 13 or Saturday, June 27 we will tentatively plan on sending crews up to work those days. Please see the signup genius link below to indicate your interest.
 
We won’t know what work can or will need to be done until a day or two prior. You will want to plan on it being pretty grungy, manual labor.
 
 
If you have signed up already, please watch your email on Monday or Tuesday. Pastor Jonathan hopes to have details on our trip for Saturday sent out to those who expressed interest.

Newsletter – April 26, 2020

To save you from having to read through the entire newsletter, you should know that there are not many updates to the newsletter from last week. We do hope you know that we (both the Pastors and the rest of the congregation) are longing to gather back together again, and we are praying for you. If you have a need please do not hesitate to reach out.

Serving during COVID 19

We recognize that many in our church family have been finding unique ways to serve and care for one another. This has been a joy to see and a joy to receive the acts of love performed by Christ’s saints. We would encourage you to continue to consider how we can continue to challenge one another to “love and good works” during these unusual days. In addition to your spontaneous works for God’s glory, here are some additional opportunities where you could serve the Lord in the days ahead.
