It is another month of BGMC! We are excited to continue to raise money for missions, while learning about another area of the world! Grab your Bible and Buddy Barrel and let’s have BGMC – “Bangladesh!”
BGMC is a missions education program for kids! BGMC equips kids to know, to care, to pray, to give, and to reach the lost. We have a two-fold purpose, to reach the children of the world and to create a heart of compassion in kids. BGMC stands for, “Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge”.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Bangladesh is in Southern Asia. It is surrounded by India on three sides, and is the size of our state of Wisconsin. There are more than 200 rivers throughout the country, and they provide waterways for boats and moisture for crops. Click the link below to see more facts about Iceland:

A TRUE SOUTHERN ASIA STORY
PRAYER POINTS FOR THIS MONTH:
- Pray for Duane & Lori as they continue to minister.
- Pray for workers/staff at Uttam’s place and Bangladesh.
- Pray for the pastors and believers, as they reach out to Muslims and Hindus.
- Pray for the kids and young people…many have very difficult lives.
- Pray for more workers to be trained to go to the people who still need to hear about the God who loves them.
WHAT IT IS…
In Route 65 Kids we are doing a SHOOT-A-THON! This is to raise funds for BGMC – more specifically Uttam’s Place. This is a ministry in Bangladesh and helps give girls a safe place to live and learn. Our goal is to raise $1000! If 25 students can raise $40/each, we will reach our goal! 100% of the funds received will go directly towards Uttam’s Place and will make a difference in the lives of their girls!
HOW IT WORKS…
The goal is to get sponsors for shots made. Near the end of March you will shoot 50 free throws (K-2nd = 3’; 3rd-4th = 5’; 5th & up = 7’). This means, if you get someone to sponsor $1 per shot made, and you make 25 of the 50 shots, they would then donate $25. Will you participate in the Shoot-A-Thon? If we are able to raise $1000, we will be purchasing 6 bicycles and a keyboard for the girls.
WHAT TO DO…
DOWNLOAD the “shoot-a-thon” sheet below (or pick one up at the church). REACH OUT to family members, friends, and neighbors and work to get as many “sponsors” as possible. SCHEDULE a time to shoot your 50 shots. We plan to set aside time during Kids Church on Sunday, March 21 & 28. If needing another date contact Pastor Vicky. If you prefer to do it from home, you can still participate! Just let Pastor Vicky know 🙂

KIDS CHURCH AND BGMC!
Don’t forget to be filling those Buddy Barrels! Every penny goes to missions and spreading the Gospel around the world. Let’s work together to bless kids in other countries with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! You can bring your Buddy Barrel to Kids Church or can stop by during the week to drop it off. Let’s start 2021 strong!
We look forward to continuing to grow together!
Much love and care,
Pastor Vicky & Mrs. Green
