Matching Challenge for Camp Vandemere

The Board of Camp Vandemere hopes you had a great Thanksgiving and wishes you a Merry Christmas. Camp Vandemere has the opportunity to receive a wonderful Christmas gift this year. An individual has made a challenge to everyone to donate to Camp Vandemere, over and above regular gifts, by December 25, 2021. Every dollar received will be matched by this generous individual up to 25,000. Please consider making a donation to our Camp to further the ministry. We had a wonderful camping season this past year where many individuals made a first-time decision to accept Jesus Christ, and numerous rededications to our Savior were made. We are trying to raise money to purchase new playground equipment before next camping season, construct a multipurpose building and other areas of improvement. Please note your donation as “challenge” and send to Victor Jones, 264 Kirby Thigpen Road, Pink Hill, NC 28572. Thank you in advance for your continued support of Camp Vandemere’s ministry.

December is Foreign Missions Month

December is designated by our Convention as Foreign Missions Month for Original Free Will Baptists.

The Board of Foreign Missions was created by the Convention of Original Free Will Baptists to aid the churches in fulfilling their responsibility of carrying out the command of our Lord Jesus Christ to take the Gospel to all people (Mark 16:15). The command was given to the Church. This Board serves as the channel through which the cooperative efforts of the church are concentrated to fulfill this great task. Through these efforts, work has been established in Bulgaria, India, Liberia, Guinea, Mexico, and the Philippines.

The Board of Foreign Missions is dependent on the churches for prayer and financial support. Every local church should make world outreach its chief concern. Jesus gave Himself for ALL people. Your gift and prayer support for Foreign Missions is a testimony of your obedience and love for Him.
