What would be wrong with a local church helping to fund needed equipment for the local fire department? Or?

Question by Very much in love with God.: What would be wrong with a local church helping to fund needed equipment for the local fire department? Or?
special ed classes or materials? Why isnt the church a place where any or all can go to for help? Christ helped many with miracles, and deeds as well as His healing words. What would be wrong with churches becoming known for their deeds both individually and civically?

Best answer:

Answer by Kan Pitter
You don’t make any sense.

Churches are suppsoe to be places where all CAN go and ask for help, spiritually or not.

Churches take take take, but they should give give give. And I’m not just talking about Sunday preaching.

How can our small church set up a radio broadcast in local area?

Question by Jackie S: How can our small church set up a radio broadcast in local area?
How can our small church set up a radio broadcast in local area?
We would like to somehow set up a localized radio broadcast live of the sermon each Sunday. This way, Nursery workers and children’s workers on the other side of the building (and even neighbors to the church) can tune to a certain station to check in on the sermon. This seems possible, and hopefully easier than trying to hard wire something throughout our cement block building.

Best answer:

Answer by s. grant
The FCC only allows radio broadcast through a license agency (Stations) any thing else is illegal. You may need to set up a system that runs through your PA into a speaker that is in each room.

Local Church Praises the Giving Spirit of an Orlando Painting Contractor

Local Church Praises the Giving Spirit of an Orlando Painting Contractor

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 13, 2010

Orlando Painting owner Jim DeBaggis personally painted the exterior of Orlando’s Evangel Assembly of God Church, in an act of giving that has touched the congregation.

“It’s often said the most important act of charity is the giving of our time,” Evangel Pastor Gary Rice said. “Jim Debaggis set aside running his business to personally paint our church. It cut our labor costs significantly.”

The members of the church had been focused on how they could help others, with various outreach programs in the fall and spring. That’s part of what prompted DeBaggis Painting to help the church.

“We are taught to give without expecting anything in return. But I have to say, the joy of this church community at the new look of their church is a gift,” DeBaggis said.

He suggests people go take a look at Evangel Church, which is at 5838 Hoffner Avenue in Orlando. “Who knows?” Debaggis adds. “Maybe some folks will be attracted by the modern look of the exterior paint and stay for the service.” The Pastor says his church strives to be inviting to newcomers, and anyone curious about the new paint job will be welcomed.

The Church asked DeBaggis Painting to select paint colors complementary to the neighboring business.

Pastor Rice says, “Service to our fellow man is part of our church’s mission. It’s clearly a core value of DeBaggis Painting, and Jim DeBaggis lives by his values.”

How can I keep from going to the local Christian youth center?

Question by Eric: How can I keep from going to the local Christian youth center?
I’m an atheist that hasnt “come out” yet, and my parents want me to join this local youth ministry for college students now that I’m a freshman. Because of my beliefs about Christianity, I feel like it will just be a big fat waste of time. I could be studying and LEARNING during those hours! 😛
But they’ll feel like I’m a dirty sinner otherwise. They’re pretty much making me go. How can I stand my ground?

Best answer:

Answer by iampretty
tell your parents you want to go to the library and study instead.

can you tell them you have gone but just don’t go?

college ain’t cheap. wasting time at church centers is a HUGE waste of your parents money.

Also jobs ain’t easy to get nowadays, if you don’t study you ain’t gonna get no job after college. tell your parents that.
