MISSIONS IN ACTION AT PLEASANT RIDGE CHRISTIAN CHURCH - April, 2018
Third Sunday of the Month - Mission Collection: GFA – Pastor Wankhade
Due to your generous contributions throughout the year we only have $300 to go to reach our $1440 annual support commitment for Pastor Umesh Wankhade, the Pastor of our Gospel for Asia church-build in India. To help reach that goal the Mission Committee has designated this month’s collection to be used to continue our support for Pastor Wankhade. If you are able to aid us in this effort please mark your checks with “GFA – Pastor Wankhade” in the memo line.
**As always, if you wish to designate your offering to a different mission please mark the outside of the envelope and we will make sure your wishes are honored.
Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
Thank you all for your generous contributions last month to help honor the life and legacy of Reverend Billy Graham. We were able to send $550 designated to support the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Out of the Garden
As the school year winds down the MC wishes to thank you for your ongoing support of PRCC’s monthly hotdog/hamburger dinners. This month $332.50 was raised to support the weekly food distribution effort. May 3rd will be the last dinner for this school year when we hope to reach of our annual goal - let’s plan to make it a banner month!
Nursing Home Residents - FYI
During the Easter season Sandra delivered crosses to those living at Brookdale Nursing Home and Barbara delivered the Easter message to the residents of Bermuda Village. In both cases many of our older neighbors were blessed by this outreach. Today at 2:15 some of us will be joining Gina and Nathan Morrison who will be going to Spring Arbor Assisted Living to play music for the residents. All are welcome to come and be a part of this outreach (you can come and just sing along). Please see Gina after church for details if you are interested in participating. Also tubs remain in the Fellowship Hall to collect nursing home and FYI items. Clothing, school supplies, and miscellaneous small items are welcome and will be distributed regularly.
Bondage Breakers Outreach Ministries
We continue to support the Bondage Breakers Outreach Ministries through the collection of men's socks, underwear (boxers), undershirts, and T-shirts. A collection tub will remain in the Fellowship Hall to receive any (or similar type items) you wish to donate. Donations are personally delivered on a weekly basis. Please see Barbara for additional information.
Recently Gina delivered household items, toiletries and monetary donations to Freedom House (she also volunteers weekly at their resale store). All items donated are being put to good use and are greatly appreciated.
Greensboro Urban Ministry
106 lbs. of food was just delivered to Greensboro Urban Ministry. We will continue to collect peanut butter, oatmeal, and/or mixed fruit. The MC is also in the process of planning to serve dinner to the residents of Weaver House within the next couple of months. Details will follow.
