RidgeFocus with the Junkyard Big Give: Coin Wars

Sunday February 14, 2016

The month's RidgeFocus is partnering with the Junkyard's monthly Big Give for Coin Wars!

Here are the details....

February 14th there will be four garbage cans to collect the coins, each garbage can will represent a ministry. The ministry with the least points at the end of the collection will receive a pie in the face!

1) Junkyard (Doug Applegate & Val Sutphen)
2) RidgeKids (Sarah VanRees & Sue Green)
3) Sunday Morning Stage (Graham Schardt & Mike VanRees)
4) Adults (Mary Kolhsdorf & Joni Pine)

Throw your coins in to support your favorite ministry, each cent equals one point (one penny = one point; one nickel = 5 points, four quarters = 100 points, etc).
Throw dollar bills in to subtract points from a ministry (one dollar = -100 points; five dollar bill = -500 points)

All money collected will go to the Hospital of Hope in Togo, West Africa to purchase a projector (the projector will allow them to show the Jesus Film). The projector costs $2250. Any money raised over that will go for snake bite anti-venom ($50 a piece). Snake bites are very common in Togo and each bite needs to receive three doses of anti-venom ($150). The average monthly wage in Togo is $50. Let's bless them!
