FBCOKC Response UPDATE #1

Our partnership with Feed the Children is now fully in place. They are dropping a trailer in our parking lot this afternoon.  Please let your friends, family, and neighbors know that the need is for canned foods, diapers, bottled water, and Gatorade type drinks.  Please bring your donated items to the North Parking Lot between 9am and 6pm M-F and throughout the day Saturday. Volunteers will be here to assist you. 

The Furniture Bank of OKC will be open extended hours, 8am – 4pm, on Saturday to help receive donated furniture. This furniture will help to meet the need of those that were living in apartments and rental homes whose insurance coverage might not be adequate to replace their home furnishings.  Check your spare room, look in your garage, and tell your friends that this is the time to share their furniture for the sake of others.

If you would like to volunteer, we now have a number of options for you.  Good Shepherd Ministries has freed Beth Ogburn to help facilitate volunteer needs for our congregation and our community.  She has a growing list of times and locations where you can be involved.  You can contact her at bogburn@goodshepherdokc.org or at  (405) 537-6629.

Know that we are working with a wide diversity of local churches in a collaborative effort to help touch the lives of those dealing with broken homes, hearts and lives.  We also continue in dialogue with CBFO and others on partnering with them in additional relief efforts.

Please remember our special time of prayer and worship tomorrow night in the Chapel at 6pm.

Keep checking the church website at www.fbcokc.org for the latest information on what we are doing as a congregation and how you can volunteer to help make a difference.

Grace and Peace, Tom
