May Benevolence – Blood: Water Mission

Blood:Water Mission is a community, motivated by the love of Christ, to create lasting change in Africa. We give our lives to serve local leaders and join them in the fight to end the HIV/AIDS and water crises.  Since our launch in 2004, Blood:Water has raised over $27 million through the creative efforts of tens of thousands of individuals seeking to make a difference. We believe that Africa holds the leadership, creativity, passion and resolve necessary to address the HIV/AIDS and water crises. That’s why we’ve spent the past ten years working alongside more than a dozen African organizations to bring clean water and HIV/AIDS support to 1 million people in 11 countries (taken from their web-site).

Call to Worship

 Joyful is the sound we make this morning!
For this day liberates us from doubt and fear. 

 Thankful is the song we sing!
For this day moves us past darkness and despair. 

 Hopeful is the prayer upon our lips!
For this day awakens in us long-awaited new life.
Jesus said, “Where two or more are gathered in my name, 

 I am there among them.”
Christ lives here and now.
He is among us at this and every moment!

May his peace and presence be known to you.
And also to you.
Let us greet one another with expressions of Christian love.

Camp Lebanon has been a favorite site for campers since 1949. From June to September Camp Lebanon offers over night camp for children from 1st through 12th grade.  Counselors from across the nation and from many foreign countries come to Camp Lebanon for many reasons, but primarily they find it to be a place to become closer to God and to share His love with the campers. Children enjoy the love, warmth, laughter, tears, friendships, fun, and memories which remain throughout the years.

Call to Worship

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; 

his love endures forever.

In our anguish we cried to the LORD, 

and he answered by setting us free.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

his love endures forever.

The LORD is our strength and our song; 

he has become our salvation.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

his love endures forever.

We will not die but live,

and will proclaim what the LORD has done.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

his love endures forever.

The stone the builders rejected 

has become the capstone;

The LORD has done this;

and it is marvelous in our eyes.

This is the day the LORD has made;

let us rejoice and be glad in it.
