Mark your calendar!
The 16th Annual National Day of Prayer Breakfast sponsored by Mayor Brereton will be on May 3 at 8:00 a.m. in the Community Building (111 West 1st Street, Belvidere).
BMA (Belvidere Ministerial Association) just reviewed the plans and our Lord will be honored as you are inspired in a 2 Chronicles 7:14 kinda way.
Also, don't forget Big Thunder Park prayer circle at noon on the same day!
Unfortunately, I will be in Pennsylvania that day visiting my dad who has faced serious health challenges. However, you know how I feel/believe about the priesthood of all believers (go to www.bnnsradio.com for a recap by going to the archive of the 4/15 service) and you and the many other called/gifted pastors of Belvidere will help lead/inspire people to... I trust you and them with enthusiasm!
1. BMA and Mayor Brereton with director Nat Bauer and organist Mona Sorensen are deep into planning for this year's patriotic to Jesus and His claim upon America worship service and musical presentation (July 1, 10:00 a.m., at the Community Building). The pastors of Belvidere who love Jesus and love America enough to worship together as He would have it and join together in blessing Him with repentant hearts and voices call on you to be there and consider being a part of the choir! Rehearsals are scheduled for our sanctuary on April 22 and May 20 (2:00 - 4:00 p.m.). If we really care about Christian unity and getting on our knees in prayer and praise for the revival of America...
2. BTW, we're responsible for ushers and greeters on July 1.
3. Habitat for Humanity will be constructing another house on 909 North Main in Belvidere. You can help! All skill levels accepted! For more information, call 815-980-6247.
4. Yo! Billy Flott and I need your sponsorships for the Stronghold Benefit! The response so far has been underwhelming. Go to www.belvpresbyterian.org for more info. We're gonna be real embarrassed if... Also, please pray for my health related to this. Frankly, I don't care about my health in an eternal kinda way; but this is important to Stronghold and Billy.
And if you've ever wondered how to pray perfectly, I'll see you at 7 or 10 in the morning this Sunday.
Blessings and Love!
