BERGEN UPDATE - We had 35 students attend our first worship night in October. Students encountered Christ in new ways. What's cool to see is that our encounter with Christ did not end with our time that evening. The time students had to pray for one another has extended to time on campus through friendships, wrestling with questions about faith and how one incorporates Christ in every aspect of their lives.

FAIR is the Fellowship’s Aid and International Relief arm. We will be highlighting some of their special appeals in the coming months. Cedar Home for girls outside of Beirut, Lebanon was ruined by war but has good bones and is seen as the perfect place to start a trade school for young men; to equip them with skills and expose them to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Good Bones Special Appeal wants to raise $150,000 for building repairs, renovations and furnishing the revitalized school. More details are available in the foyer. Donate online at Good Bones.
NESS LAKE BIBLE CAMP - the 2023 NLBC Polar Bear Dip on January 1 is an annual fundraiser for the Camper Sponsorship fund that helps send kids to camp whose families cannot afford it. Details and registration for dippers and spectators are at Polar Bear Dip. (They want to make enough cinnamon buns for all!). Who will partner with them to raise pledges for their dip in the water? The first 75 'dippers' get an exclusive t-shirt too!
