Hi BRN Family, Elizabeth here, and it’s time for the July Top 5!
#1- By now, you should have received a full package of materials designed to help you celebrate the Baptist Resource Network’s annual #LovePASJ Week of Prayer and Offering for Missions. This annual emphasis, usually held the second week in September, allows us to have a continued focus on our neighbors across Pennsylvania and South Jersey, especially in the areas of collegiate ministry, compassion care, and disaster and crisis relief. Simply visit online at brnunited.org/offering to order materials. Thank you!
#2- Pastors and leaders all across the BRN are invited to the second of two Discipleship Vision Days, to be held on July 16 at Restored Church in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. This full-day event is designed to be an encouraging, inspiring, and influential time that will give you discipleship resources and principles that will help you to evaluate and elevate multiplying discipleship in your church. The BRN is sponsoring the entire event, so you’ll receive materials, lunch, and more for FREE! Sign up today at: restoredchurch.org/TTI.
#3- As you have heard, on June 24, in a 5-4 opinion, the high court overruled the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that struck down all state abortion bans and legalized the procedure throughout the country. Great news, but where do we go from here? On our website, the BRN has posted resources to help churches minister to those facing crisis pregnancy and to help support local pregnancy resource centers who are on the frontlines making a difference. Learn more at brnunited.org.
#4- VBS season is finally here! The BRN wants to help! We have built a VBS Swap Shop, an online resource where churches can share their VBS decorations and leftover materials. Churches interested in sharing and those in need of borrowing supplies can sign up at brnunited.org/vbs-swap-shop.
#5- What are your summer evangelism plans? The Baptist Resource Network would like to help you! Churches may apply for evangelism grants specifically to support and promote outreach events and evangelistic efforts. Does your church or church plant have an upcoming event or training that you think would qualify? Apply today at brnunited.org/grants.
That’s all for July. Thanks for watching, BRN Family. We appreciate you and we are thankful for you!
