One Great Hour of Sharing- Collecting throughout June
“You are here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.”
   Matthew 5:14-15
         One Great Hour of Sharing provides emergency relief and funds for the development projects which address chronic needs. OGHS supports disaster relief, ministries to displaced persons, and development projects of the American Baptist Churches and its partners.
           “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine… “. If Jesus had a playlist of music, surely this familiar hymn would be among the Top Five. Jesus teaches that faith calls for action. Sharing our light, as the diverse and colorful expression of God’s love here on earth, leads to making blankets, staffing food pantries, cooking meals, building houses and schools, signing petitions for worthy causes, and protesting injustices. A simple song with a simple message—our light is on a light stand, for all to see—shine and share. On any given day, light is shining because we are there through our gifts to OGHS.
Your contributions make a difference. Your dollars count. Give generously. Share the light!

Read Through the Bible
On the last Sunday of each month, we will have a 6 pm (Zoom) check-in to discuss the readings, your observations and questions. Don’t forget to send in your questions to brian@fbcblm.org

Judson will give the group a tour of campus while we are there.
Any High School students interested in learning more,  meetings with students and faculty can be set up.

    1. Drywall repair and patching in dorm rooms area-Volkman Hall.
    2. Carpentry- build cased opening at Lindner Tower service elevator area.
    3. Painting- campus wide.
    4. Carpentry- cabinet hardware repair/replacement- campus wide.
