Semi-Annual News Letter

Binghampton Community Church Month Ending Jan. 1st- June 30th 2013

Pastor Shun C. Abram

Update:

Binghampton Community Church is getting stronger and stronger each day by the Grace of God. Over the past six months we have continued to embed Christ and our lives into the fabric of our community. God has added seven new members, five Baptisms, and several attendees to our congregation.

Focus:

Making Disciples

Spring Break Mission We worked with Clear Creek Bible College [which is located in Eastern Kentucky] many of them partnered with us last year for family fest and they decided to comeback for Spring Break. They also worked with Impact Baptist Church with Pastor Ellis. We saw many lives impacted during their time with us.

Eye Glass Clinic Clinic We worked with Focus on Missions and Oak Grove Baptist Church for an evangelistic eye glass clinic. We saw 100 hundred residents, fitted 90 with glasses, and shared the gospel with them and many others in the community. Please pray that God will continue to allow us to restore sight to the blind [physically and spirituallyâ˜ş]
