IDEAS FOR YOUR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL THAT WILL MAKE IT MISSIONAL AND SAVE LIVES

Vacation Bible School directors - As you gear up for Vacation Bible School, consider giving it a mission emphasis by connecting it to Imagine No Malaria and saving lives. The Bishop's Partners in Mission June 2017 Partnering in Mission video is focused on sharing ideas with you on how to connect children's inherent desire to help people, their gravitation toward fun and interesting activities, and the numerous resources and materials that are available. If you want ideas on what you might do for a fun, educational, and missional VBS, please visit the Bishop's Partners in Mission web page at http://tinyurl.com/BishopsPIM and click on the video titled VBS and INM. You will also see eight other informative videos that may give you additional ideas.

On the BPIM web site you will see BPIM Ambassadors listed for your district. They stand ready to assist you with any BPIM fund raiser. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, and your own success stories at raising funds for Bishop's Partners in Mission.

Both individuals and teams of volunteers are needed to help repair homes and make them safe, sanitary, and secure again.

LOCHINVAR BOILERS AVAILABLE

Two gas-fired Lochinvar boilers (for use in a lead-lag system), are available to any church that can give them a good home. The boilers are 87 percent efficient and are approximately three years old. These would be an exceptional find for a church undertaking a new construction/sizable expansion project.
