everyone’s help and financial support. If you would like to make a monetary donation, checks can be written to First Baptist Church with Free Meal written on the memo line.

MISSION FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE 2017:
One Great Hour of Sharing

One Great Hour of Sharing is an offering that makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, or severe economic hardship, and for those who serve them through gifts of money and time. Today, projects are under-way in more than 100 countries, including the United States and Canada. In the 1990s, receipts have exceeded $20 mil-lion annually. While specific allocations differ in each de-nomination, all use their One Great Hour of Sharing funds to make possible disaster relief, refugee assistance, development aid and more. Additional information is available online at http://onegreathourofsharing.org. If you would like to support this offering, simply make your check payable to First Baptist and note OGHS on the memo line.
