Vision: BOLNW works to support Christians in bringing God’s love and care into the communities by mobilizing churches, bridging opportunities for tthose who want to help, with those who need a hand up. In doing this they seek to know God better, to demonstrate the power of Jesus’ love, and to witness to the only source that can make them effective – the love that God has for all people.

This fall they again had a series of “jobs for life” classes. Six different churches were involved. Included were childcare, meals, and mentors for the students, the goal being to prepare thse adult students with the skills they need to get a job. The dorector is Sherry Phinesy. Please pray for her and the many volunteers and churches who help with this ministry. For more information, please see the missions bulletin board near Pastor’’’s office.
