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 – “Africa’s Hope!”
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.”
In Africa, there are more than 80,000 Assemblies of God churches and preaching points, but only 36,000 trained pastors. There is a big need for Bible Schools and training spots for pastors. Africa’s Hope was started to provide this training, and God is using them in great ways! Click the videos or link below to learn some fun facts about the continent of Africa:

PRAYER POINTS FOR THIS MONTH:
- Pray for the students and teachers in the Bible schools to have the books and training they need.
- Pray for the thousands of pastors who need training but haven’t been able to attend Bible school yet.
- Pray that God would call more African believers to be pastors and to be missionaries.
- Pray for the safety of Africa’s Hope team members as they travel to teach and help Bible Schools.

KIDS CHURCH AND BGMC!
Don’t forget to be filling those Buddy Barrels! Great job to everyone who did the “quarter-back challenge!” Well done! Every penny (and quarter) 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 keep going strong in 2021!
We look forward to continuing to grow together!
Much love and care,
Pastor Vicky & Mrs. Green
