We had a really great Missions Sunday this year! Special thanks to the missionaries from Mexico, the Bagetts, who came and spoke on Sunday. They also spent time with everyone who is going on the upcoming Mexico missions trip, answering questions and helping us prepare. A lot of money was raised for global missions, but we still have two weeks left to meet our goal of $10,000!! Finally, everyone enjoyed an “around the world pot luck,” with food from many countries and cultures. Here are a few pictures!..

Second Annual School Supplies Collection For South Dakota Indian Reservations Together for Hope, High Plains  

ARBC will be collecting school supplies for children on the Indian Reservations of South Dakota. The collection continues through May 25, 2007.  Ray & Kathleen Kesner will be distributing the school supplies near the end of August.  

Here is what a former elementary teacher on one reservation said concerning the needs of her school age children. “I witnessed a dramatic change in kids by the 3rd grade. Believe it or not, a lot of our kids by that age are already disillusioned with life and have already begun to live in the ‘here and now.’ It’s a day by day existence with little or no plans (or hopes) for the future. So pray! Pray for the hearts, minds and bodies of the people to be healed.”  Following is a list of the items we are collecting. Please limit your contributions to these items.
