Pastor's Letter

August 28, 2015
Dear Friends,
A woman comes to the church seeking food; she's given a bag and invited to pick fresh vegetables from our community garden. Families at SERVE also enjoy fresh vegetable and some of the almost 3,000 lbs. of food collection from Giant. Someone needs a place to pray and we open our doors.   This Sunday KaMP (Kids and Mission Projects) will assemble school supply kits (from your donations) that will go to children whose families are unable to provide those items. A listening ear and empathetic presence is offered to someone facing challenges in their life.
In the series, "Lessons from James," we will talk about the powerful witness to our faith that occurs as we are "doers of the word and not only hearers." How is God calling you to be a "doer" in your life?
Please continue to pray for the ministries at Buckhall and how God is calling you to serve. Many of our ministries are gearing up for the rhythm that comes with fall and your help is needed.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Linda
