Sunday is going to be a big day at Britton Christian Church. For the past many years we have always had a Christmas Concert featuring the Lighthouse Choir of our church. So many people have come to love the distinctive flavor of the songs sung by our choir through the years.
This coming Sunday you can hear all of the wonderful Christmas songs that you have come to love through the years, but this Sunday we are singing for a cause. Our choir is highlighting the wonderful ministries of The Bethel Foundation and World Vision on Sunday night beginning at 6 pm.
The Bethel Foundation works with over 400 single mothers in the Oklahoma City area. Lynda Powell, the Founder of The Bethel Foundation was the Children’s Minister at Britton Christian Church for many years before launching The Bethel Foundation. God is using Lynda and her committed volunteers in a powerful way.
The ministry of World Vision is global and has been one of the most effective Christian ministries working with the poor since 1950. The mission statement reads,
“to follow our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.”
We are linking with World Vision to provide livestock, specifically goats and chickens for struggling families in Latin America and Africa. For $75 we can provide a goat which will provide milk for a family and help to establish a herd whose offspring can be sold for the financial support of the family. For $25 we can provide 2 chickens for a family which will produce eggs as well as offspring for the family. This is real help for those needing the basics of life.
We will take up a “love offering” at the end of the concert for those interested in helping. Even if you don’t feel led to get involved we would love to have you to come to the concert. Following the concert we will all move to the gym where we will indulge in some of the finest food you’ve ever tasted. It is going to be a great night. Invite a friend and join us.
In His Steps,
Sunday, December 6 @ 6 pm
