A group of area churches are hard at work to sponsor a refugee family in the Bear River area. The next meeting is at the Bear River United Baptist Church on Pleasant Street on Sunday, January 3 at 7 pm. All are welcome…indeed the more people who participate, the more successful this initiative will be.
If you would like to get involved, please contact Diane Peck at email@example.com or contact the group through their facebook page.
ABCDS’ is a group of kind hearted people united in the common cause of bringing a refugee family to Southwestern Nova Scotia. Members are primarily members of several local churches in the area along with like minded people from the villages of Annapolis Royal, Bear River, Bear River East, Clementsvale, Clementsport, Deep Brook and Smith’s Cove. Under the umbrella Church, Bear River United Baptist, other churches involved in the project include Annapolis Basin Vineyard Church, Bear River Advent Christian, Bear River East Baptist, Clementsvale Baptist, Clementsport Baptist, Deep Brook Baptist and Smith’s Cove Baptist.
Stay tuned for news of fund raising events as they become organized. Tax deductible donations may be made through any of the Churches involved in this project. At this point that would be Bear River Baptist Church, Bear River Advent Christian, Bear River East Baptist, Clementsvale Baptist, Clementsport Baptist, Deep Brook Baptist and Smith’s Cove Baptist. Also, if you do not require a tax receipt, donations may be made the ABCDS’ directly at any fund raising events or directly to any member.
