Walk for HOPE
Food insecurity remains a central issue among families who are struggling and/or out of work, and also because of increasing inflation in our country and around the world. This year’s Walk for HOPE is more crucial than ever, and we can make a big difference!
Last year we had the best fundraising ever—$137,000. Our goal this year is $150,000 churchwide, which will have a two-fold purpose:
· Donate to 10 food pantries in the greater Boston area
· Send a substantial part of this donation to alleviate food insecurity in Ukraine and to help refugees flooding out of that country
This year’s walk is Sunday, May 22, and the weekend will include many special events. Many dearly loved brothers and sisters from all over the US will be in town for the HOPE worldwide national board meeting: they will share good news and inspire our community outreach. This is a phenomenal opportunity for us to help others, as we have in the past.
Pure in Heart Midweeks
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. —Matthew 5:8
Although we have made Jesus Lord, been washed in the blood of the lamb, and desire to be holy, holiness takes focus and effort in our walks with God and fellowship with one another. Thanks to the Freedom Ministry and the Eldership, we will devote two midweeks in April to holiness. These topics apply not only to struggles with sexual sin but also to all idols and sins in our lives.
April 13: Pre-recorded
midweek about staying pure in heart for God through fellowship and walking with
Christ. We will present some resources for holiness:
April 20: Discussions in family groups (separate men and women) for an opportunity to be open and help each other be pure in heart.
