May 6th after the conclusion of service consider donating blood and help save lives.
The message below is from LIFE South.
The blood of Jesus Christ gives us eternal life. The old church hymn, “There’s Power in the Blood” rings true. There is power in our blood too…blood that we donate. Donated blood can help save someone’s physical life. The fact is that the vast majority of people can donate but less than 1 in 10 actually do.
The highest need for donated blood is not for accident victims in the E R, or for those who are anemic, but for cancer patients. There are hundreds of thousands of children that are in need of blood to survive their fight with cancer right now. This is a matter of life or death for many of them. Blood supplies are near all-time lows right now and if a major disaster were to hit in our community, the critical supply of donated blood would not be met.
I’m writing because we need your help to continue to save lives. Our LifeSouth team is committed to making sure the blood is there when you or your family member is in need. The blood collected from our donors directly serves the needs of patients in our community first. Only 45 minutes of your time, just 45 minutes of your congregation’s time, could mean a lifetime for someone else.
