"$30,000 for 30 YEARS" CAMPAIGN
Fields of Grace Outreach's "$30,000 for 30 years" CAMPAIGN is honoring our Pastor and the Founder and CEO of Fields of Grace Outreach, Rev. Peter DeBartolo, Sr., as he celebrates his 30 years in ordained ministry. The $30,000 represents $1000 for each year of his service. His selfless acts and initiatives over these 30 years translate into food being brought to over 100,000 individuals out into communities across the county, country, and the world, four building projects being completed which serve their surrounding areas with physical and spiritual aid, hundreds of rooms being rebuilt after the flooding devastation in our county, countless youth and young adults being mentored, and the list goes on and on. We are partnering with Fields of Grace in this endeavor and hope you will help us. Won't you donate today to help honor Pastor Peter through this project which is so close to his heart? Help bring pure water to needy children around the world.
We hope to accomplish the $30,000 goal by the middle of July when Pastor and his wife will be heading to Water Missions, International in South Carolina and volunteering with building water systems and learning about their computerized monitoring program. It is Pastor's desire that a system be placed near an orphanage or school somewhere in the world. He hopes also to be part of the team which places the system so he can meet those who will benefit from the life-giving water.
Another anonymous gift has been matched by donations and Fields of Grace is now working toward matching the next $5000 gift. We're over the halfway point of $16,500 and need your help to reach the final goal! You can help us NOW! Won't you please GIVE to help bring safe water to those in need and save the lives of thousands of children and families? $10 can give water to a child for life!
If you're looking for a way to make a difference around the world, we'd appreciate the help! The Living Water™ Treatment Systems developed by Water Missions, International, each capable of providing safe water for 5,000 people, are ready to be placed in over 48 countries. These units cost about $30,000 each and will provide 10,000 gallons of pure water daily for over 20 years. That is a lifetime of fresh, clean water for a village!As you probably know, safe water and shelter are the most important needs, not only after a disaster, but for sustenance. Without access to safe water, disease spreads quickly and compounds the health issues and mortality rate for children.

Standing With...to Withstand
Ephesians 6:10 - 20
"...put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day..."
This year's 2014 NALC(North American Lutheran Church) Convocation, CORE Convocation, the Theological Conference, and Women of the NALC all take place Monday, July 21 through Friday, July 25, at The Citadel in Charleston, SC.____________________
“Standing With...to Withstand” is the theme for the
2014 Convocation of the North AmericanLutheran
Church. The theme is based on Ephesians 6:10-20,
where St. Paul describes the whole armor of God, encouraging followers of Jesus to “put on the whole
armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in
the evil day....” The Convocation will focus on the persecution of Christians throughout the world, and
our hope to “stand with” these disciples as they
witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in spite of
opposition and, in some places, suffering.
