Lottie Moon Offering for international missions

You can always give and know that one hundred percent of your gift goes directly to the mission field.


Plans are underway for OCC 2021 at FBC, Kentwood. This is a year-long project. The focus is on needy children around the world. Not only do we try to supply some needs, toothbrushes, soap, etc., but we also focus on introducing the children to Jesus. Join us in helping.

I would love to encourage those of you who have not participated before to join in this year. You can work with our church or any other church or organization, or simply pack the shoeboxes on your own. I am available to give guidance based on my experiences and training.
