News & Events
Relief Effort Update
Thanks to your generous donations we were able to raise
$1150 for the Somali Refugee relief effort that CBM is
helping carry out in Dadaab, Kenya. It’s still not too late to
give. You can mark ―CBM—Somalia Refugee Camp‖ on
your offering envelope. If you are writing a cheque,
make it out to Bedford Baptist Church but mark it for the
refugee camp on the memo line.
Our Prayer Initiative
We are invited to join together in prayer for one another.
As we move through our fellowship alphabetically, look for
your name to appear. If it doesn't, please let Peter know,
for we wish to be in prayer for YOU. This week, please be
in prayer for: Melvin, Janette, Erin, Haley & Maggie
Fiander (and Samantha & Nick Krauch), Peter & Margaret
Foote, Clive & Alana Foster, and Scott, Tina & Devin Frail.
Also be in prayer for our New York Mission Team
which leaves this Saturday, August 6th.
