Active Church in Rogers

Evangelism, Fundraising, Inreach and Outreach
October 17, 2018

ROGERS, ARK. – The Rogers Seventh-day Adventist Church has been blessed to be busy reaching out to its community! The church recently held a three-day giant yard sale with proceeds going toward the church building fund. The Lord blessed with nearly $3,000. The fundraiser could not have been accomplished without our faithful volunteers who worked diligently prior to the sale with setup and pricing, then three days of the sale, and clean-up. Nearly everyone who came in the door left with some kind of tract as we shared a warm smile and messages of truth.

Two new mothers were honored when the women of the church rallied with baby showers to make sure they would have what they needed when their little ones made their appearances.

Dr. Horst Mueller shared valuable Bible truths on The Law of Life. Dr. Mueller is an Ear-Nose-Throat specialist from Germany who has a passion for sharing the Gospel and the health message in very unique ways with interesting presentations and relevant stories. His wife, Lydia, shared her amazing violin skills with us during the meetings, even playing a few songs with our pastor, Ovidiu Radulescu, to the delight of the 40 or so attendees.

At the end of October, the church met for Trivia Night, with fellowship, food, and intellectual challenges as teams of 6-8 rounded each table to figure out the answers to the many trivia questions asked by our emcee. Between rounds there was a delicious chili dinner with all the fixings, and everyone enjoyed the variety of food served. Many non-Adventists came to fellowship with us and play the game and partake in the very profitable auction and raffle. The event raised money for the building fund and yielded nearly $3,000! Great prizes were given and everyone is looking forward to the second annual Trivia Night next year.

In November, members dressed up and enjoyed a evening of delicious food and fellowship for the Women’s Ministry Weekend and Fall Gala. Rex Frost delivered a special sermon on Sabbath about women in the Bible, specifically the story of Naomi and Ruth. His wife, Donna, delivered a meaningful presentation on Psalm 23. The women truly enjoyed the time together and befriended all who came.
