April’s Collection -Charity Fund - (see information below)
Wednesday 4/22 - Family Bible Study on James
Saturday 4/25 - The LifePoints Gospel Sing- There will be a virtual Gospel Sing on our website (www.midwestgospelsing.org). The video will feature a special performance by The Anderson Family, the testimony of a Timber Ridge resident and her sister, and an important message from one of our Board members. Donations can still be made online to support the costs of one unfunded resident at LifePoints. These are not the most ideal circumstances, but we are still excited to come together virtually during this time of social distancing! Thank you for continuing to remember LifePoints in your prayers.

Charity Fund - The charity fund is used to support those in need of financial assistance both within our church and our community. At times we may take up a special collection if there is a major event or crisis in our local community. We also support local organizations like the food pantry, Heart House, Berean Ministries (see featured summary below) on a regular basis. With the changes we've made this year in opening the Operational Fund, the charity fund will be used solely for charitable purposes. All of the other other costs for functions such as national brotherhood support and ministry and outreach activities will now come from the Operational Fund.You can make donations to the Charity Fund by sending your checks to Sis.

Berean Prison Ministries - We distribute around 5-8000 bibles per year and send out 8-10,000 bible studies. We have volunteers in 45 - 50 jails, prisons, and juvenile centers in the midwest. We also partner with prison ministries in Eastern Europe.
