BENEFITING: Walnut Grove Assembly of God

EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2015

Ryan Deal

THE STORY:

From the Pulpit to Outer Space: Local Pastor Retreats to “Space” to support Outreach Programs and Local School. Pastor Bill Galus, pastor of Walnut Grove Assembly of God Church in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, will spend one week in Space Capsule to raise awareness of the United States Space Program and support Local Outreach Programs. Pastor Bill Galus strongly believes that the best way to establish a particular point is an object lesson and sometimes, a sacrificial demonstration. Pastor Bill, a pastor for over 30 years, seeks to accomplish this goal in a very unique way. That is why on September 13, 2015, Pastor Bill will preach his Sunday Morning Service from the pulpit of Walnut Grove Assembly of God Church and leave directly from the pulpit to enter a space capsule, aptly named “The Glory 7”, where he will stay seven days before exiting on the morning of September 20, 2015 and return to the pulpit to preach the morning service. The Glory 7 will be custom built by local church members to simulate The Mercury Space Capsule, the `United States first manned venture into outer space. The Capsule will be equipped with electricity, portable toilet, a make-shift bed, a small refrigerator containing bottled water and a seven day supply of space-style freeze dried meals. During the weeklong stay, Pastor Bill will remain in the capsule where he will eat, sleep and communicate with the outside world via internet by fielding questions from students during Wednesday morning chapel at Walnut Grove Christian School and documenting his stay with online blog postings. The mission is being used as a fund raiser to sponsor our community youth program that does ministry and outreach to the youth of the West Mifflin area. Additionally, the mission will draw attention to Walnut Grove Christian School by teaching students about the United States space program. For more information on the mission or how to donate to support the mission, please contact Walnut Grove’s Youth Pastor, Ryan Deal, at 412-469-3010 or ryanfdeal@gmail.com.
