Hi my name is Avtandil Anarbekov.
I’m an exchange student from Kyrgyzstan. While here in the US, I’m doing a service project with Heartbeats of Newark. This is a pregnancy care center.
I will be collecting items and donations to help supply their store where clients can use “points” earned in parenting classes to “spend” on baby supplies. They are in need of consumable items for example: bottles, formula, pacifiers, diapers and new or gently worn baby clothes.
There will be a box and baby bottle (for monetary donations) in your church lobby.
Thanks for your consideration.
In a world that seems to run on money, greed, power, and more,
what would our world look like if it ran on the love of God?
How can we infuse this world changing love into our lives?

If you are interested in working with Mission Outreach, you are invited to attend the April 10th, 7:00 p.m. meeting. We will be planning activities and fund raisers for the spring and summer.
Future activities are a Spaghetti Dinner in May, Pancake Breakfast for the church and/or Food Pantry, finishing the playground, working with the Teen Serve program this summer, and summer lunch program.
If you have any outreach ideas, please come and share. If you have an interest, but unable to attend, please let us know, so we can keep you informed on plans made. Geb & Margo Bader, (740) 862-4775
Why have we stopped bringing in food for our pantry?? Well, let’s get started again.
How about in April, everyone bring in cake mixes and hamburger helper type dinners? These are not
expensive, and the panty always needs them. After that, in May, let’s bring in canned fruit, instant pudding and Jello. For June, make it macaroni & cheese and canned pasta dinners (ravioli type). I will let you know about other months later. Thank you for your support.
If you would rather give money, just put it in an envelope and mark it food pantry, or mail it to Ruth at 1760 W Market St., Baltimore OH 43105. Thank you and May God Bless You. Ruth Beckwith
The Jackson Area Seed Ministry collects seeds and money to provide seeds and garden plants to people who can’t afford to buy them, so they can plant a garden. This helps them to help themselves, by raising their own fresh vegetables. This is a great self-help program, which serves 19 counties in Ohio, mostly in the southeastern part of the state. They do not include Fairfield County yet, but do Perry and Hocking, so are helping our neighbors.
If you want to support them, you can bring seeds (or cash) to church for Ruth Beckwith, and she and Will will make sure they get to them. Thank you in advance for your support.
