WHY ARE WE HOLDING A BLOOD DRIVE ON MAY 23, FROM 3:30-7:30 P.M. AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH LITHIA SPRINGS?
We are about saving lives! Blood donation is one of the most precious gifts you can give today.
Jesus said in Mathew 25: 34″Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ 40…‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’
When we give blood, we do it for the King.
WHO NEEDS BLOOD?
A common misunderstanding about blood usage is that accident victims are the patients who use the most blood. Actually, people who receive the most blood include those:
being treated for cancer
undergoing orthopedic surgeries
undergoing organ and marrow transplants
undergoing cardiovascular surgeries
being treated for inherited blood disorders
Every 2 seconds someone in the United States needs blood.
WHY DOES MY DONATION MATTER?
For His Sake…
I am but one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
What I can do, I ought to do.
What I ought to do, by the grace of God I will do.
Lord, what will you have me do?
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
