THE EVANGELISM COMMITTEE OF NBLC IS HOSTING A WALK FOR WATER FOR WATER MISSIONS INTERNATIONAL. The walk is designed to be a fundraising event so that a water treatment and purification plant can be acquired for a village that does not have clean, pure water to drink. The water walk, titled GREAT RIVERS WALK FOR WATER 2014, will be held Saturday morning, June 7th, here at NBLC. Prayerfully consider how you might participate: team captain, walker, volunteer. There is something for everyone. Water Missions International provides clean water for people who do not have it, and also WMI works through local churches where the water plants are placed to share the Good News of Jesus. This is a great opportunity for us. Let’s work together to bring glory to the Lord by helping others in need and sharing Jesus with them.

Money is one of God’s gifts to people.
“Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions,
and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot
and be happy in his work — this is a gift of God” (Eccl. 5:19).
