Books for Appalachia

BFA Blog Logo.001

We are excited about this new mission opportunity to collect new and gently used books to send to Bill Barker, Director of The Appalachian Regional Ministries. You can drop your donations off at the Media Center during our normal hours. Suggestions are: Bibles for all ages, board books for young children, chapter books for grade school children and teens, fiction and non-fiction for adults. Please make sure all these books meet with our Christian beliefs. We will look at all donations to make sure they are worthy of our giving to these precious people in Appalachia.  We hope to be able to send a box of books to Mr. Barker every month or two. Monetary donations of any amount will be appreciated to help with our shipping costs.  We thank you in advance for your generosity in helping this mission. You can visit the NAMB Appalachian Regional Ministries website to read about the region and their needs and the wonderful work they are accomplishing for our Lord.

  1. I’ve already collected some books for Appalachia. It blesses my heart to know someone will be blessed by reading them. Reading them has certainly enriched my life. Some of the titles are: The Sister Circle series, On Every Side, Safe At Home, and the Shofar Blew and Epiphany by Paul McCusker. Some of these are books we have discussed at Book Club. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this could be the beginning of a Christian Book Club in Appalachia?

    I’m excited about this also. I’m going to start going through my books and some of my grandkids books that they have outgrown. Christian books can be such a blessing and I’m thrilled to be able to be a part of this ministry!

I would love to hear your comment!
