During this Advent season, as we anticipate the incarnation, Immanuel, God with us, we hear the admonition to be ready, to watch. We will remember God’s preparation for His Son to enter our world through Mary, Joseph and John the Baptist who was preparing the way. We also remember their long journey as strangers in a strange land. We remember the neglect of those around them forcing the Holy Family to a cow stall for Christ’s birth.
Bed Brigade Grove City is a service ministry partnering with St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church to provide much needed beds and the hope of Jesus to the Columbus, Ohio area. In 2017, the Bed Brigade visited over 200 homes and families, giving away 560 beds, as well as distributing 560 Bibles and Bible storybooks to recipients of the beds. Please join us in prayer that the adults and children are impacted to the point where there are choices made for love instead of violence or abuse; that some choose to reach out to Jesus instead of drugs; and that hope can grow in many hearts leading them out of the cycle of poverty.
This Advent season presents us with a unique opportunity to prepare for Christ’s birth by helping with DELIVERING 100 BEDS== RAISING $10,000== 100 VOLUNTEERS. And so far, we are well on our way, but we still need your help:
1. Prayer – for those whom we will encounter and serve, that we may be prepared to share a word of hope in the Good News of Jesus Christ.
2. For those who live in the Columbus area and are free to assist, join us in prep work or delivery. To connect, please visit: December Blitz.
3. Financial Support – please visit: The Great Commission Society.
We lay this need before you – asking that you prayerfully consider partnering with us for the sake of the One whose birth we prepare to celebrate.
