No Needy Among Us

This is the passage from my daily Bible reading this morning and I was inspired that this could be Starting Point Church!

34 There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need. – Acts 4:34-35

Here are some practical ways you can help make this a reality!

1. Pancake Run – September 29th we will have our second annual Pancake Run.  We are praying to raise $2,000 for our Family Crisis Fund which helps families in need in our church and community.  You can register for the Pancake Run at www.pancakerun.com.  It would be great if you could even get a group of people from your work, school, or Lifegroup to run with you!  Even if you don’t want to do the run you can just come eat pancakes and/or get a T-Shirt!

2. Pop Top Ravioli Cans (Apex Campus) – Our Apex Campus is partnering with Apex Middle School, Backpack Buddies, & other local churches to send students from poor families with a full backpack of food every Friday!  We are asking our Apex Campus to bring Pop Top Cans of Ravioli to church this Sunday to make sure that no student at Apex Middle School goes hungry!

3. Household Goods (Raleigh Campus) – we are partnering with Rotary International to help two students who have graduated from the Foster Care System and are now attending both Wake Technical College and Starting Point Church!  These students are courageously seeking to rely on Jesus and make the best out of a difficult past.  One of these students told me this week they did not have any family in the area.  I told him I never wanted to hear him say that again…because he now has a church family!  Here is a list of household suppliesthese students need for their new apartments here in Raleigh…We are asking our Raleigh Campus to bring these items to church this Sunday!

Household Items Needed:
Bath towels
Bath rugs
Hand towels
Washcloths
Bathroom trash cans
Body soap for men
Laundry detergent
Stackable desk files
Kleenex
Toilet Tissue
One standard pillow with white pillow case
Some light cleaning supplies for room and bathroom
Clothes Hangars
Set of Queen Sheets'

Thank you for helping us make sure there are “no needy among us”.
