A Generous July
August 15, 2011
During the month of July, we challenged the people of First Baptist Church to take part in one of three different mission opportunities. And FBCER step up in a big way!
Mission Opportunity # 1- Shoes for School Kids
We want to provide all the children in El Reno with the opportunity to have a good pair of shoes. Many children in our town do not have this opportunity. Our goal was to raise $1500.00 so that we could purchase 150 shoes. We didn’t just reach our goal, we surpassed it by raising over $2000.00! All this money will go buy shoes.
Mission Opportunity #2- Baskets for College Students
We want to provide a welcome basket for every dorm room at Redland Community College. We had a goal of collect 50 baskets and we collected 68 baskets.The baskets were delivered on August 15th. The management at the apartments were very excited by our delivery!
Mission Opportunity #3- Lifebook Movement
On September 6th our middle school and high school students will begin a week long mission trip to their schools where their goal is saturate their school with the Word of God. We took up a one time love offering to help with the lifebook movement and the church stepped up big time by giving nearly $800!
Way to FBCER! Keep up the good work! Let’s keep on being on mission in El Reno!
