We have been hearing and seeing a lot about missions at FBC lately. We have a team who recently returned from France, we have a team going to Phoenix on May 26, Latvia on Jun 16, Chicago on Jun 23 and Haiti on Jun 24, just to name a few. We desire to take the message of Christ to people wherever it is needed. We must never forget that the same message is needed in our own hometown. That is what “Mission Lawton” is all about.
We will begin on Tue, May 30 by delivering fresh fruit to some of our church members and others. Wed, May 31 we will have a cookout at Villanova Apartments at 5 pm. We need volunteers to put out door hangers at about 4:30 pm. All church members are invited to eat, fellowship with visitors and walk a few streets. Thu, May 1 and Fri, May 2 are set up days in the gym.
The main event is on Sat, Jun 3. We will register guests from 9 am to noon. At this event, each family will receive a food sack and have an opportunity to receive children’s clothes, haircuts, vision screenings, medical screenings and dental care. We will also be pre-registering children for VBS. A new event on Sat will be a cookout to provide a hot meal to all our guests.
Your donations of money now will help us to shop for food and prepare it for families. We also need, at this time, for you to donate clothing for children (sizes birth - adult small). Bring clothes and monetary donations to the church office as soon as possible.
If you have not already been given an assignment please come by the Hall of Memories on Sun and sign-up to assist in this effort.
Over the years, we have been able to reach out to our own community, and this year we hope to reach many. I believe that Jesus calls us to help others and show His love in this way.
