Lighthouse Christian School Financial Need

Sunday, January 24th 2016 6:58 AM

Urgent financial need...

It's not easy to be transparent and share this situation regarding our finances but we feel we must.

  • Lighthouse Christian School's income comes primarily from donations and tuition. Currently expenses are up and donations are down, leaving us with a sizable shortfall.

  • The patrons are actively pursuing multiple fundraisers to help with our deficit.

  • At this time we estimate that we need $51,000 to balance the budget by the end of July which amounts to $8,500 per month.

Will you help us?

If the Lord prompts you to support our ministry at Lighthouse Christian School you can do so by mailing a check to:

Lighthouse Christian School

P.O. Box 166

Brookville, OH 45309

  • OR     -

Brethren Charity Fund (Attn: Lighthouse Christian School)

P.O. Box 365

Brookville, OH 45309


May God bless you as you consider our need and we thank you for your support!

Praise Project Link

Sunday, January 17th 2016 6:52 AM

We have removed the link above to the Praise Project due to technical & functional difficulties on the Praise Project. The Praise Project will be terminated at some point in the future. We are investigating the possibility of creating a new Sermon Repository which will be hosted on the ogbbc.org website for all New Conference public worship services. In the meantime, if you have a need for any sermons that were posted on the Praise Project, you can email Caleb Jenkins at "cabeljenkins@gmail.com" and Leonard Meador at "leon.meador@gmail.com" and they will send you the sermons that you need.

Thank you for your cooperation!

BCF - Comforter Center

Sunday, January 17th 2016 6:52 AM

Come visit the COMFORT CENTER —- a great place to serve and socialize!  It’s user friendly and child friendly.

THE NEED INDEED IS GREAT!! CAM has announced the goal of collecting 100,000 comforters in 2016 in response to the destitute conditions of which they are aware. The Comfort Center presently has 78 comforter tops ready to assemble, knot, and edge-bind so they can be shipped out. We are blessed to have a freshly re-organized facility in which to generate MUCH good for our fellow men. Will you be willing to lend your heart and hands for this worthy cause?

There is an important spot to fill for ALL of us, not just skilled seamstresses. Women, couples, families, and young folks can find fulfilling work here. The list of opportunities is the following:

 Sorting fabric for block cutting

 Block cutting

 Counting blocks for comforter kits

 Sorting blocks into proper weight and color categories

 Block layout for immediate use or bagging for later

 Stitching comforter tops

 Piecing together material for comforter backs

 Assembling the comfort for knotting

 Knotting the comforter

 Binding the comforter edges


The regular scheduled Comfort Days are Tues. and Thurs. all through the year. The Center will also be open the first Wed. of every month to which you are welcome. If you choose to bring a group on any other day or evening, that can be arranged. Please contact Rita Turner at (937) 564-7318 for your name to be placed on the calendar.

Come use your gifts at this service center, then leave a note in the suggestion box with ideas for improvement! :)

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily as to the LORD and not unto men; knowing that of the LORD ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the LORD CHRIST… Col. 3:23-24
