2nd Annual Faith & Blue Weekend -
October 8-10, 2021
WHAT: National Faith & Blue Weekend (NFBW) is a collaborative initiative that builds bridges and breaks down biases through activities and outreach amongst law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve.
WHY; National Faith & Blue Weekend is based on the premise that strong communities are built on mutual respect, trust and understanding. Law enforcement entities and faith-based groups are key pillars of a local community, and when they work together, neighborhoods thrive.
HOW: National Faith & Blue Weeked is an expansion of the One Congregation One Precinct initiative (OneCOP), a program of MovementForward, Inc which is a bridge-building, solutions-focused human & civil rights organization based in Atlanta, Georgia. The OneCOP initiative pairs officers at the beat or precinct level with local houses of worship. Similarly, NFBW is facilitated by law enforcement entities, faith-based organizations and the community.

LOVING GREENE-DREHER · Reaching Our Communities For Christ
First Assembly of God is fully committed to seeing the Gospel spread both in our local communities & throughout the world. This includes supporting missionairies around the world and our Loving Greene-Dreher outreach!
LOVING GREENE-DREHER began in 2017. We recognized the need to reach into our local communities of Greene Township in PIke County, where we are physically located, and our sister community of Dreher Township in Wayne County.
LOVING GREENE-DREHER focuses on helping our community in practical ways. Currently we are reaching out each month to:
GREENE-DREHER VOLUNTEER FIRE ASSOCIATION in Newfoundland. They are our local heroes and give so much to our community. (They also host a monthly breakfast at their fire hall on the 1st Sunday of each month -- it's currently on hold until after the covid19 situation is over.)
WALLENPAUPACK AREA SOUTH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in Newfoundland is a great group of leaders & teachers. Each month we deliver large cookie tubs of animal crackers to each classroom and treats for the office & staff room. We also give personal hygiene kits to the nurse for the girls. (In 2018 we were able to put new shoes & socks on EVERY student Pre-K to 6th grade through a grant & community assistance!)
BLOOMING GROVE & HONESDALE PENNSYLVANIA STATE POLICE BARRACKS are near & dear to our hearts. These heroic law enforcement officers are the ones who stand in the gap between peace & chaos. We thank them monthly with treats, meals & gratitude.
We pray for all of these people and our community. They are precious to us!
