This weekend was a FIRST Sunday! We would have been bringing in our Buddy Barrels, raising money for missions, and learning about another area of the world! So even though we can’t have BGMC Sunday at the church, we can still have it from HOME! So grab your Bible and Buddy Barrel and let’s have BGMC – “Vanuatu”! (vah-noo-AH-too)
Below you will see a message from Mrs. Green about Vanuatu…a message from some friends about a true missionary story…a yummy recipe you can try…and an invitation to soak Pastor Vicky for BGMC! Are you ready for BGMC Online?!
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.”

PRAYER POINTS FOR THIS MONTH:
- Pray for the kids of Vanuatu that they would have the opportunity to go to school and read God’s Word as well!
- Pray for pastors and missionaries there.
- Pray that the people would accept the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

BGMC BLESSES VANUATU
BGMC has blessed the Jubilee Christian School with a water well. BGMC also helped fund CompassionLink’s trip to Vanuatu to show the people how to build water wells and how to conserve fuel for their cooking fires. BGMC funded the first-ever Children’s Day Festival in Vanuatu, where over 400 kids learned about Jesus and had a time of praise and worship, through fun clowns, puppets, and more. BGMC also has helped with repairing and building churches, repairing Bible schools, covering shipping costs for containers of supplies to come to Vanuatu, and replacing all the library books that the pastors of Vanuatu lost during a cyclone. By putting change in your Buddy Barrel, you help the people and pastors of Vanuatu!
JOIN US FOR THE BGMC DRIVE THRU!!!!
This Wednesday, June 10, from 3 PM – 4 PM!
Have you enjoying learning about other countries, missionaries, and how God is working through us? Have you been putting spare change in your Buddy Barrel? Have you missed Pastor Vicky? Or…do you enjoy throwing WATER BALLOONS at Pastor Vicky?
If your answers is YES to any or all of these questions…come to church THIS WEDNESDAY, June 10! You can drive thru the parking lot anytime between 3 PM and 4 PM. Pastor Vicky and the Greens will be there ready to greet you. There will be a spot for you to empty your Buddy Barrel (even if you only have a few pennies), there will be some BGMC stuff we would love to give you (special prizes and goody bags for the first several cars), and then there will be water balloons ready and waiting, available to purchase. It will cost $1 per water balloon, no limit per family (well, unless you want 300), and all the donations will go to our BGMC goal! And the best part…you then get to throw the water balloon(s) you buy…at Pastor Vicky! But she may have some cash on her as well…so be careful 😉 More details and directions will follow soon!
ALSO, we encourage every kid to wear their “Praying for the Nations” shirt. If you do not have one, or have outgrown yours, we will have a stock of them at the Drive-Thru for you to receive one!
We will be sure to use health and safety measures, so we won’t be able to hug or high five, and my helpers who are handing things to you will be wearing face coverings to prevent any germs from spreading, but we can at least see your smiling faces, say hi to each other, and raise money for missions together! Should be super fun!
Hope you can make it out to the BGMC Drive Thru this Wednesday! 🙂
Much love and care,
