Uganda is a small country located in East Africa. More than half of its population is under the age of 15, and 96% of the children are vulnerable to abuse in their own households, schools, and communities. This year BCEC continues to partner with World Vision to support the Minakulu, Uganda Area Development Program through child sponsorship. To sponsor a child, please apply in person in the lobby of 249 Harrison Avenue on Father’s Day (6/21) or do so online at this website anytime this month: www.worldvision.org/bcec
As the Ebola outbreak continues to unfold in West Africa, health care facilities have been overwhelmed by the number of those in need of care. This has forced many families to become Caregivers to loved ones suffering from the disease. This year, BCEC is partnering with World Vision to prepare Ebola Caregiver Kits for communities in Sierra Leone where there remains an urgent need for supplies to help prevent the spread of the disease. Our church wide goal is to raise $11,000 to sponsor 300+ Caregiver Kits ($30 each). We will collect donations on Sundays: April 26 and May 3. We will build caregiver kits on May 17, with preparation on May 15.

Praise God for your love of the Lord and His church and support BCEC’s ministry in many different ways. This is a reminder that as we welcome 2015, the 2014 tax filing season will soon begin. With our total contribution units grow towards 1,000, BCEC Treasury has tried various ways to streamline the process to save labor and cost. We found that generating the receipts in PDF format and delivering the tax receipt by email are the most efficient and cost effective method. We had a number of undeliverable each year due to incorrect email and postal addresses. Please update your email or postal address at http://www.bcec.net/about/member-resources/tax_receipt-request-form/.
We would also like to take this opportunity to give you a few friendly reminders…
Lastly, the following is the tentative 2014 tax receipts distribution schedule:
May we continue to build a blessing through our love and obedient to Him, may God’s name be forever glorified!
We are available at email@example.com if you have any question.
Have a blessed New Year!
