Disciple Bible Outreach Ministries Offering
Disciple Bible Outreach Ministries (DBOM) Offering will take place on Sunday August 23rd or anytime this summer of fall. For 21 years DBOM has offered volunteer led Disciple Bible Study ministry in our state and federal prisons and juvenile training schools. Thousands of inmates have received ministry from DBOM. Now, in light of changing times, DBOM is revisioning to provide even greater work among our churches! While DBOM will continue to offer sound Bible teaching, DBOM will respond to urgent societal needs to adding advocacy, education and prison reform to her work. Soon you will be hearing much more about this! Please keep DBOM strong by participating in the special offering. You can give members of your congregation an opportunity to give individually or make a general church or mission budget donation to DBOM . Promotion materials are provided below. Learn more about DBOM here. God bless you!

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
