Getting the Gospel into Loris Middle School!
Believe it or not, but many of our Middle School students (6th – 8th grades) have never had the gospel explained or even shared with them. They have no idea that God created them, loves them, and sent His Son (Jesus Christ) to die for them so that they could have an eternal relationship with Him. This is sad. But, we can now do something about it. We can start “Release Time” classes in the Loris Middle School starting in January of 2022. Release Time classes just means that we can pick up students from the school on a bus, take them off campus for one class period, teach them evangelistic Bible doctrines, and then bus them back to school. We will be working through an organization called “Coastal Schools Ministries” which has been teaching students the Bible in both Middle Schools and High Schools for over 20 years and is ready to help us get it going here in Loris. If you would like to see Middle School students reading and learning about the Bible (and ultimately, Jesus Christ!) five days a week, here in Loris, beginning with the Spring and Fall Semesters of 2022, then please begin praying and helping us raise the necessary $45,000 to make this happen. These funds will pay for “2” teachers ($16K a year salaries), the necessary insurance coverage, taxes, administrative needs, etc., etc. To make a financial donation so that we can begin this incredible outreach ministry, just write a check to Loris FBC and in the memo line write “Coastal School Ministries”. You can also donate through the Loris FBC Church App or on our website. Just make sure you use the features of the Giving App to indicate the donation is specifically for “Coastal School Ministries”. We need to raise the $45K by September 30th to be assured that we can begin “Release Time” Bible Classes in the Middle School in January of 2022. Please pray and donate whatever you can (God can multiply your lunch money!!). We will keep everyone informed of our donation total. (NOTE: Other churches in the Loris area are also aware of this ministry and raising funds with us to make this happen!)
