Reaches up to worship God
and Reaches in to nurture and

Exciting things are happening at Bon Air Christian Church. Sitina, Ahmed and Abdi arrived. It is a joy to welcome these very kind friends and to help them build a new life. They endured much hardship when they fled for their lives from Ethiopia to a Kenyan refugee camp. They are so grateful and we are so grateful that God called us to reach out and help these friends in need. How happy we are to make such a significant difference in their lives.
We are also helping those in the community by feeding the homeless shelter and welcoming CARITAS. Our Caritas guests will arrive for their week at Bon Air Christian Church on May 28th.
Our Associate Minister Search Committee is diligently at work and our Sunday school classes, fellowship groups and committees continue on going vital ministries. We do need you. We need your participation and enthusiasm. If we are to have a positive and uplifting children's ministry we need parents to affirm our ministry by bringing children to Sunday school, worship and youth group. As it has been said, "it takes a village." It does take all of us being involved, engaged and committed.
The last day of Sunday school for the summer is May 22nd. I would like to thank all of our Sunday school teachers who take time to study and prepare so that they can share the good news with us. The fellowship class does continue on throughout the summer. We will recognize our youth group leaders and Sunday school teachers on May 1st and express our gratitude to them for their dedication.
One more proverbial phrase – the measure you give is the measure that comes back to you. When we become involved and give of ourselves we find that we get back so very much. We are fed spiritually as we reach out to others. Our souls are nourished whenever we are doing God's work. I continually give thanks for the privilege of sharing with you in ministry.
