Honor Memorial Day

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4)

True sacrifice is the ultimate service we can perform in this life. We learn this from Jesus, who made the ultimate sacrifice and remained faithful through his Passion, death, and Resurrection.

Jesus’ greater purpose for this sacrifice was our well-being — that we might have life, abundantly.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

This Memorial Day, as we remember all who have served and sacrificed on our behalf, remember too what Jesus willingly sacrificed for us — and the lessons we can learn from his perfect example of sacrifice.

ABCCM Requests Donations of Food

And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.” (Luke 3:11)

ABCCM (Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry) is requesting donations of cooking oil, sugar, canned meat such as chicken and tuna, salt, jelly, and jam in support of its assistance program for the poor.

ABCCM helps our neighbors in need, combining public funds and with local contributions to meet critical needs. You can learn more about ABCCM here.

The BCBC Young at Heart Sunday School Class will have a collection area in its classroom and will deliver all the items collected. If you are able to donate any of these items, or other things that could be used to help provide food for the homeless or those in need, please bring them to the BCBC Worship Center.  This is a continuing project sponsored by the class.
