October Mission of the Month

October Mission of the Month

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY & CARDS for HEROES

“We all don ‘t have Bibles. We would like some help. ”
-Marine stationed in the Middle East

The mission for the month of October will be collecting funds to purchase Bibles through the American Bible Society to be sent to our Armed Forces all over the world. We will also be sending Christmas Cards through the Red Cross called “Cards for Heroes” to troops all over the World. Every $5 we collect will help place a Bible (Good News translation) in the hands of a Service Member.
Last year we provided 542 bibles to troops and sent 200 Christmas cards. What a blessing! One Service Member said to his Chaplain when he finally received a Bible, (the Chaplain was concerned it would be added weight to his pack} “No. It is the Word of God. It is never too heavy.”

Please pray for these brave men and women who have responded to the call of duty and are there for us …for our children and grandchildren …for the future of our nation. Help us let them know Broadway sends our love and appreciation and most of all, Hope through Jesus Christ.
As always, our Mission committee asks you to pray about whether you want to be a part of these 2 projects. Designate gifts to this mission by putting the amount on the monthly mission line on your tithing envelope. We hope we will be able to send dozens of Bibles to share God’s Word with our Troops.
Thank you and God Bless!
