“BREAKFAST FOR DINNER” WILL HELP HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

      For the third year, Blaine Christian Church, 7018 Putney Road in Arcadia, is sponsoring “BREAKFAST  FOR  DINNER” to raise funds for Habitat For Humanity Of Benzie County (HFHBC).
      Help make a family’s dream come true - come to the church on Saturday, October 20th, between 5 - 7 pm, give a donation, and enjoy a delicious breakfast of homemade sausage, scrambled eggs, pancakes with maple syrup, fried potatoes, and beverages.
      All donations will be given to Habitat For Humanity Of Benzie County to be used for construction costs, making it possible to provide homes for families in our community.  HFHBC is a nonprofit housing organization operating on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action.  HFHBC believes everyone should have a decent place to live and is dedicated to eliminating sub-standard housing.
      Blaine Christian Church strives to live and share the love of God as revealed by Jesus Christ.  The church’s missions ministry believes in working locally and around the world, so that’s why we support HFHBC.  We want those inside and outside the church to know how much God loves them.  It is our desire to serve both the physical and spiritual needs of our community.
      Blaine Christian Church is located at the corner of Joyfield and Putney Roads, Arcadia.  If you have questions or need more information about “BREAKFAST  FOR DINNER”, please call 231/352-9148, or email:  blainechurch@gmail.com, or check the church’s website:  blainechristianchurch.org.
