Goodsearch to help WSCS

03/19/14

FBWS Church Secretary

Would you like to get involved in a simple method of supporting WSCS? We would like to encourage you to select goodsearch.com as your search engine. Once you select it, choose West Seneca Christian School to be the beneficiary of your searches. Then, for every search that you make, 14 will be donated to WSCS. Already, nearly $120.00 has been donated to our school. One friend of our school has done enough searches to make a donation of more than $30.00. We have found that the search engine works very well (like google.com). Some affiliated sites like goodshop.com provide additional methods of making free donations to our school! If many of us can make goodsearch.com the main search engine on our computers, tablets, and phones, support for our school can increase dramatically. We hope that you will sign up today!

On Sunday, March 9, Dr. Buria began to teach a class about manners and customs of Bible times. Many passages of Scripture that are difficult to understand for Westerners are readily explained by a knowledge of Middle Eastern cultural patterns. Some of the topics that will be discussed as time permits are tent dwellings, houses in Bible times, foods and their preparation, customs at mealtime, special suppers and banquets, eastern hospitality, daily activities, dress and ornamentation, etc. The class meets in room 26.

Missions Conference Meal

02/16/14

FBWS Church Secretary

We typically end the missions conference with a church dinner between the morning and afternoon services. This year the dinner will be on Sunday, March 2nd, but you will not need to bring meals for the dinner. We understand missions conference week is a busy one, with many people providing lodging and/or meals for visiting missionary families, and attending the conference, Saturday's men's prayer breakfast, and ladies' luncheon. We would like for your Sunday meal to be a relaxing one where you can fellowship with the missionary families and with one another.
