!!What's Happening in the World!!

Exciting things are happening with the offerings you give to BGMC.  Recently Larry and Mary Kessler, Russia shared that BGMC purchased the heavy coats and hats that the Hosanna project one year team members needed as they travel Russia with the gospel.



District Happenings

1.  Does your church participate in the BGMC program?  If, not why not let this be the year your church becomes part of the program.  You can receive all you need with the BGMC Missions manual on CD: 12 months of material available at MyHealthyChurch.com.  No offering is too small to be used by BGMC to reach boys and girls for the Lord.

2.  If you participate in BGMC, have you sent in your goal for 2017?  It’s not too late, drop a note in the mail or e-mail the district office
.


3.  We would like to be able to send out information on a regular basis to the person in your church who does BGMC.  Would you be so kind to send your church name, your coordinators name and their e-mail address to nnedes@maine.rr.com?
BGMC UPDATE

Two thirds of the year has gone by.  How are you doing reaching your goal?  District wide we have raised $11,374.42 which is 28½ % of our year’s goal of $40,000.  We have a long way to go.

Recently we received a challenged from David Boyd, BGMC Director to double our last year’s giving.  Last year NNE BGMC raised $28,629. Double that would be $57,258.  We would be happy this year to reach the $40,000.

We challenge you to increase your BGMC giving ABOVE AND BEYOND what you had given last year.  Challenge your children
to give more this year.  If you are using unique ways to raise BGMC monies we would love you to share them with others that we might encourage those struggling with a fresh idea. If you are one of our churches not presently supporting BGMC you still have time to start a BGMC program this year.  Your children and your church will be blessed.

As a reminder, BGMC’s theme again this year is ABOVE AND BEYOND, from HCSB version of Ephesians 3:20.  “Now to Him who is able to do ABOVEAND BEYOND all that we think or ask.” God is a god of the impossible and wants to do the possible for us when we take Him at His word.  He wants to see children come to know Him.  Let’s see what God can do through us.

We also encourage you to stop by BGMC.ag.org or BGMCkids.ag.org for missionaries’ testimonies of what BGMC is doing for them, children’s activities and new products.

NNED BGMC coordinator



BGMC helps support local projects in NNE including supplying outreach packets for Chi Alpha, sound equipment for a home missions church, and other various ministry needs.

When a new church opens BGMC allows them $600 to be used towards the purchase of startup supplies such as communion sets, offering bags or plates, overhead projectors, church office supplies, and much more as well as underwriting 1/2 the cost of Sunday School curriculum for the first year.

Great promotional ideas can be found at the National BGMC site, and for a catalog of BGMC resources order the free  resource catalog (item number 715-076) from Gospel Publishing House
