7/9/17 Announcements

Sunday 7/9 - Servant Fund Collection - The HarvestCall Servant Fund provides us the opportunity to financially support brethren serving as missionaries in Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico. By supporting the Servant Fund, you are supporting all of the brethren sent on behalf of HarvestCall. The majority of these brethren have full-time roles that prevent them from holding other gainful employment.  The Servant Fund provides for a consistent level of support for those who are serving. While our missionaries have many challenges as they serve, it is our goal for them not to have the added concern of financial stress. Therefore, the Servant Fund is a way for us as a brotherhood to directly support the work of our missionaries.  Our Roanoke congregation is thankful to be able to support the Yordy family through the Servant Fund. Thanks for your ongoing support of the Servant Fund. With approximately 50 missionary brethren currently serving, our financial commitment to our brothers and sisters is significant and those serving express their gratitude for your support of the cross-cultural ministries of the Apostolic Christian Church.  A list of these missionaries is posted on the North Hall bulletin board.
