BMS (Baptist Missionary Society) works among some of the most marginalised and least evangelised people, in some of the most fragile places on earth.
As a church we support their work and have signed up to their Birthday Scheme which is administered by Maria, one of our members. To find out more, head to https://downsbaptistchurch.org/community/mission-works/
BMS World Mission Birthday Scheme has been revamped and exciting changes made in order to achieve its full potential, as follows:-
- Birthday Scheme Secretaries have been renamed Birthday Scheme Co-ordinators. This means someone who organises the BS in the local church, such as an administrator.
- Resources have been refreshed. These include the gift envelopes and the news bulletins.
- BS gifts will continue to support BMS medical work. We were giving to Guinebor 2 hospital in Chad, North Africa, on the edge of the desert, to support them with medicines, operations, surgeons, nurses etc., etc. Now, however, our gifts will be used for other urgent BMS work, such as evangelism and church planting, education, justice ministries and relief work.
- Birthday Scheme members will receive a free copy of ‘Engage’, the BMS magazine, 3 times a year, to see their birthday gifts at work. Members can, of course, opt out of any mailing and their details will also be fully data protection compliant.
Appeal for more BMS Birthday Scheme Members:-
We would love to see some more members in the DBC Birthday Scheme. Why not join us and bless others with a gift on your birthday! It will bring encouragement and hope to so many as well as blessing you!
