Genesis: Issues for Today

December 24, 2018
By Administrator

Beginning January 3!

Dr. Brian Luther, an LPC member and Associate Professor of Old Testament at Cairn University, will teach this early winter Adult Bible Study as part of our Faith Acts program.

Brian writes, "The book of Genesis is more than the history of how the world began - it is a book that raises significant issues for our Christian lives today.  It addresses the issues of human origins, human relationships, our place in God's creation, and many more. Genesis introduces the story of our relationship with God.  It tells us how that relationship began and shows us what God is doing to restore what we have broken.  Come to this class to  see how the book of Genesis can help us think biblically about these important issues."

Faith Acts begins with dinner served from 5:15.  Classes for adults, children choirs and activities, and Youth Group all begin at 6:15

 

An International International Mission Trip

Guatemala2019

This year's international mission trip to the shores of Lake Atitlan in the highlands of Guatemala takes on a new international dimension at four members of Igreja Presbiteriana no Jardim Ameríca, our sister church in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, join us for a week of serving Christ along side our partners from PLM in Guatemala.  

Team members will serve in a medical clinic, work with village children, and help construct simples houses that become safe homes for local families.  

The challenge of a single team with native Portuguese, Spanish, English - and Kaqchikel (the language of the indigenous people around the lake), will be overcome by the joy of God's people working together.  More information is available on our mission page.

and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and
you gave me a room. –Matthew 25:35

The Gift of Education

 

HUNTING PARK CHRISTIAN ACADEMY:

 

Hunting Park Christian Academy (HPCA) provides quality Christian education to at‐risk children from low income families in the Hunting Park community. Since most of the students are not raised in Christian homes, the staff strives to train them up in the ways of the Lord. Many of the students have heard the gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time at HPCA and have come to know the Lord. Your $50 gift can be designated to the school’s General Fund or their Scholarship Fund.

 

 

The Gift of Sight


KIBUYE EYE CLINIC:

“In Africa life expectancy is about five years if you go blind. It is a death sentence. Life is tough when you are blind in Africa. 75%-80% of blindness is treatable or totally reversible.”  Dr. John Cropsey.
 
Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in Africa. A fifteen minute procedure restores sight to those blinded by cataracts.  Kibuye is also pioneering the use of chemotherapy to treat pediatric eye cancer.  Its program is the first in Burundi to offer such treatment.
 
Your gift of $50 will provide for one cataract surgery or half of the cost of a round of chemotherapy for a child suffering eye cancer at Kibuye Eye Clinic in Burundi, East Africa.

The Gift of Good News


LIFE ABUNDANT MINSTRIES: 

Through its work at the Bucks Country Jail, Life Abundant strives to break the cycle of repeated imprisonment by introducing inmates, ex‐offenders and their families to Jesus Christ. Through God’s love and grace inmates overcome their addictions or other problems that were the cause of their repeated incarceration. Life Abundant volunteers create relationships with inmates through Bible Studies. A Bible is an essential part of any new Christian’s growth. $10 will provide a New Life Study Bible to an inmate eager to read the word of God. A gift of $25 will provide three inmates or ex-offenders with a new Bible.

 

The Gift of Music

 

ESCOLA DE MUSICA:

Music is everywhere in the slums of urban Brazil. But it’s more than boom boxes and ear buds. Brazilians love to make music. Through its Escola de Musica, the Presbyterian Church in Jardim America, Belo Horizonte Brazil, provides an opportunity for the people of its impoverished neighborhood to learn to play the guitar, keyboard, or drums. Students not only learn the joy of music, they hear about the God who puts music in our hearts. Most students receive scholarships. A $25 gift to the Scholarship Fund will help those students continue to learn to play an instrument and about the God who love them.

 

 

The Gift of Shelter

 

GAiN MULTI-USE TARP: 

Tarps are one of the most important tools in a humanitarian aid worker’s tool kit. When disaster strikes, tarps can be used for waterproof shelter, as a sanitary cover on the ground for sorting emergency food rations or for drying rice.  Many GAiN relief workers build relationships with individuals as they provide new tarps to replace the worn, highly flammable materials refugees are using in camps.

 

$40 provides a durable tarp to shelter a family. 

Boot Out Infections

 

A COUPLE OF CHRISTIANS - GUATEMALA
 
This initiative recognizes the problem of kids walking through the puddles and floods of the rainy season with inadequate footwear. As trash, mud, and even sewage flow down the streets, kids march through with old, torn, and non-waterproof sneakers and shoes. This results not only in colds and illnesses, but also foot and toenail infections.

You can show you care by providing a pair of boots to a needy child for $10. 

 

The Gift of Warmth

 

ChoiceOne Pregnancy + Sexual Health Resource Center

ChoiceOne Pregnancy is a place where young women go when they are facing a pregnancy or motherhood alone.  They go to ChoiceOne feeling scared, confused, and abandoned.  Through ChoiceOne they find hope, support, and encouragement. They hear the good news of the Gospel.  ChoiceOne staff and volunteers stand with them as long as they need support. 
 
One of the ways ChoiceOne supports young moms is by providing needed supplies for their babies.  During the winter months, bunting is needed to keep a baby warm. You can show your love and care for young moms and their babies by providing a baby bunting for $30.
