Donations are being requested for the Preteen School Kit Packing at 2017 Conference. Please consider helping the cause as we reach out to students in poverty-stricken lands by packing school kits. Together with the Y.F's, we have a goal of packing 3,000 kits at a total cost of $35,000. You may mail donations toBCF/2017 Conf School Kits, P.O. Box 365, Brookville, Ohio 45309by April 15, 2017.
The exact number of kits will depend upon the funds received and will be adjusted accordingly. Any unused funds will be forwarded to C.A.M. to be used where most needed.
Anyone is welcome to observe the kit packing Saturday at 6 PM in the NW corner of the Doden Field House.
Also, we are looking for volunteers to help chaperone preteen activities. Please contact Rod and Polly Brubaker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937.416.5342 by April 15, 2017 if you would like to help.

Greetings in the name of Jesus,

God bless you,

May God bless you as you consider helping,
Lord willing, the BCF Food Packing will be held Friday, January 20, 2017 from 6:30 - 9:00 PM at L&C Plastic Bags, 500 Dick Minnich Dr. Covington, Ohio.

Prov. 22:9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.
As a result of our meeting this afternoon with team members from each mission involved in this work, we want to let you
know the following:
1.) Our goal of standing in the gap until the large organizations can mobilize has been realized.
2.) The urgency of the situation in the southwest of Haiti is still urgent, and funds are still needed, but we are no longer the vehicle through which to channel your funds.
3.) Please send funds to the mission of your choice to help with rebuilding in the wake of this devastating hurricane.
Blue Ridge Christian Homes is a Mennonite/Beachy mission in Haiti. We are in urgent need of a family to take the position of administrator for our mission near Port Au Prince. Responsibilities include oversight of our well drilling program, our school support programs, and oversight of both American and native staff. We are asking you to please consider whether God might be calling you to fill this important role.
Please contact Simeon Shankster for more details.
Since the PraiseProject website has not been fully functional in the recent past, many of you have asked if there are any future plans for a “PraiseProject-like” site of New Conference preaching audio files and if there was any way you could help. The answer to both questions is YES(!), as we are planning it as part of a new www.ogbbc.org website and there is opportunity now to donate to the cause. Please send your donations to Brethren Charity Fund (Attn: PraiseProject), P.O. Box 365, Brookville, OH 45309.

WELCOME TO A WEEK OF DISCIPLESHIP IN THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS!
Each year we prayerfully consider whether to host another Youth Bible School. We are very excited about plans for spring of 2016 - only a little over 1 month away! We are anticipating singing, praying, witnessing, fellowshipping, growing & hearing message after message of solid Scriptural teaching
(Sun. eve March 13 through Sat morning, March 19) – “Yet there is room, the feast is spread!”
Applications of married couples willing to participate under the same guidelines as other students will be considered if space is available.
We recognize there may have been misunderstanding about YBS in the past, causing some to feel intimidated, inadequate or even unwelcome to attend. Please knowthat if you have a desire to grow in your walk with Christ you are welcometo apply, it will be our intent to call all of us higher, but not to unnecessarily intimidate anyone.
