URGENT NEED TO HELP UGANDA CHURCHES IN FAMINE
The Eastern Uganda Baptist Association, which partners with Regular Baptist International, is in urgent need of compassion. In a recent e-mail to Director Chris Hindal, Rev. Joshua Masaba, president of Eastern Uganda Baptist Association, says, “I am bringing to your attention the famine disaster that is hitting the communities in our region due to the prolonged drought. The situation is alarming, as animals and humans are dying due [to] the looming hunger. If there is any way the loving brethren elsewhere could extend a helping hand, please help to rescue the dear lives of God’s unique creatures! I will be grateful to hear from you!” Donate online, by phone, or by mail. For online or check donations, note “emergency relief.” Let us help our destitute brothers and sisters.
HELP PLANT FIVE CHURCHES IN 2017
Regular Baptist Builders Club works with Regular Baptist Church Planting to come alongside church planters, mission agencies, and state associations to help plant churches. Regular Baptist Builders Club has increased its church-planting Start Up grant to $30,000, to be given over three years. According to a recent church planting survey, this amount slightly exceeds the national average of what is given in support of church plants among all denominations and groups.
Regular Baptist Builders Club needs to raise an additional $50,000 per year to keep up with the anticipated number of grant requests from church plants. Consider adding Regular Baptist Builders Club to your church’s monthly financial support, or become a member and lend your own monetary or prayer support. If you, someone you know, or your church can help support funding for new churches, please call 847.585.0803 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUPPORT CHURCH PLANTING THROUGH PRAYER
Clare Jewell, national church planting coordinator for Regular Baptist Churches, asks you to pray that 50 churches will join in a prayer initiative for church planting. Not only you can pray for that endeavor, you can also be an answer to that prayer. Sign up for the prayer initiative at On Your Knees prayer challenge. Also, please pray for formation of church planting teams in Salem, Oregon; Phoenix, Arizona; Byron, Minnesota; and Hazleton, Pennsylvania.
