Big Things Are Happening

Big things are happening at Blue Grass Church

Blue Grass Awarded Welborn Grant
Welborn Baptist Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of an evidence-based pilot project designed to expand the role of churches to impact Healthy Eating and Active Living. In addition, a focus will be placed on establishing partnerships & collaborations between churches and community. St. Matthew Church of Lynnville, Blue Grass United Methodist Church and All Saints Parish were the 2017 recipients. The pilot project is an extension of the Upgrade Initiative.

Caves and Canoes
On Friday, July 14th, our youth group spent the day exploring caves and paddling canoes on the Blue River. It was a fun time exploring the great outdoors with friends. Stay tuned for future youth group events!

Serve NOW
With a lot of hard work and a whole lot of great attitudes, Serve NOW 2017 was a shining success. In all, 23 students and half a dozen adults worked hard at five different worksites over four days doing a variety of jobs to help local non-profits in Evansville. A lot of great memories were made and we grew closer together as a group. Many thanks to the college students, chaperones, and those who helped to serve meals for making this a week we won’t soon forget!

About the Author – A Free Concert!
On Thursday, June 22nd we invited the community to a free concert at our Main Campus. Up and coming band, About the Author, inspired and entertained.

Vacation Bible eXperience Recap – Why We Do What We Do
We had a tremendous week during our VBX (June 5th-9th). We had  300 kids registered with more than 80 volunteers who served to make it an absolutely fantastic week. More than 20 children made a decision to accept Christ as their personal Savior! That is living out our vision big time! We did a lot of seeking and reaching kids for Christ. We join heaven in celebrating their new life in Christ.

And in addition to that great news, the kids raised $4,000 for our Misphael Well fund. Wow! That’s enough to build a clean water will in Nigeria that will save lives; hopefully for generations!

On top of all that, the VBX kids challenged the congregation to match their giving. We’re not quite there yet, with the congregation having given $1,894.39 so far, but there’s still time! You can give online at HERE, or Sundays in worship through the end of June. Let’s keep the momentum going and show the love of Christ to the world in a powerful way!

These kinds of results happen when we commit our ministries to prayer, when we have excellent leadership and volunteers in place, and when the whole congregation supports the ministry of the church through their generous giving. We’d like to extend a big thank you to our Blue Grass family for making a huge impact in our world and in the lives of so many children for the sake of Christ.
