Bruschetta Bash? What in the world is that and what is it all about?
Bruschetta, sometimes spelled bruchetta and with other variations as well, is Italian bread soaked in olive oil and then toasted with Genoa Salami, Provolone Cheese, a variety of peppers (sweet not hot), sliced tomatoes, onions, and toped with an occasional olive slice.
If you are anywhere in Burns Flat, Oklahoma on Thursday 11 May 2014, all you need to do is follow your nose. It will lead you to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, which is just north and east of the town’s only traffic light.
Bruschetta sells for $5 an order. An order consists of 3 scrumptious pieces. Bruschetta will be delivered to schools and businesses in Burns Flat. Deliveries will also be made to those who are unable to come to the church to pick up their order.
Why is someone cooking Bruschetta?
This is a fundraiser to send Pastor Tom Spence and Elder Rick Ellis back to Africa to train and equip pastors and ministry leaders. Last year Tom and Rick trained over 300 men and women from Kenya and Uganda, equipped all with either an English or Swahili Bible, and led worship services the Sunday following the conference.
Both Rick and Tom agreed that it was a wonderful experience to proclaim the gospel and teach leaders and new disciples in a place where people are hungry for the Word of God.
The Bruschetta Bash is one of several fundraisers that will be necessary to raise the $10,000 needed for this special ministry. If you can’t make it for Bruschetta but want to help, donations may be sent to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, PO Box 8, Burns Flat, Oklahoma 73624 and marked “Africa.”
