4/5/20 Announcements

April’s Collection -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 and Heart House 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. Jenell Hodel or online (http://roanokeacchurch.org/pages/giving/).  

Holy Week - Although we will not be able to gather together as a church family, you can listen to the services by phone, AC Central or watch on FaceBook. 

  • Good Friday Service on 4/10 at 7:15
  • Easter Sunday Service on 4/12 at 9:45

Saturday 4/25 - The LifePoints Gospel Sing- Although you will not be  able to travel to FivePoints to listen to it, we have an exciting alternative planned! At 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 25th, we will be releasing 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.
