UPCOMING EVENTS: MARK YOUR CALENDARS
*** The SJBA Senior Adult Event is scheduled for November 1, 2018 at Frederick Blvd. Baptist Church, beginning at 10:00am. All Seniors 55 years old and up are invited to attend. For the meal, the meat, rolls and beverage will be provided. All attending are asked to bring either a vegetable, salad or dessert to help with the meal. Plan to join fellow Christians for this special time of fellowship.
*** Pastor James has called monthly ministry (committee) meetings for the second Sunday of each month after the morning worship service. This is the time to share with other committee members about what we are doing and to be on the same page about happenings in the church life. A representative (or more) from each elected how each committee needs to be present at these meetings to report
*** We are collecting school supplies each month for the “Back to School” event we have in July. The November items to bring are pens, pencils and erasers. You may place these items in the container in the church foyer. This collection is to allow us to have all the items we need to give to the children who attend VBS s they can be ready to go
*** TOUCH TUESDAY is every Tuesday night at 6:30 pm. This is the time to visit those who have visited our services and those who haven’t been here for a while. Contact Pastor James or Jerald Holcomb to let him know you want to be a part of this very important ministry.
*** We need to restock the food pantry to be able to donate Thanksgiving baskets in November and Christmas baskets in December. Bring items that can be used for a Thanksgiving (or Christmas) meal as well as food staples and toiletry items we normally need.
*** ATTENTION!!!! The Children’s Ministry is in need of help during the morning worship time. Tammy Auxier has put a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for help each Sunday until the end of October. Also a sign up sheet for help with snacks/drinks for the children during Children’s Church. This is such an important ministry for the children and will be a big help for Tammy. She will have all the sessions prepared for each Sunday. PLEASE PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER HELPING WITH THIS VERY IMPORTANT PART OF OUR CHURCH MINISTRY.
*** The 8th Street Drop In Ministry is an ongoing ministry for our church. There are papers on the table in the church foyer listing items needed for this ministry and a box/table to put your donations in/on. In this way we can share items we will never use again with folks who really need them.
***NOTE :The W.M.U. would like to thank everyone for their donations toward Operation Christmas Child, they were able to send 40 generously filled shoe boxes to needy kids around the world. They will begin in January to collect items for next year. Thanks again.
REMEMBER: We will continue to save Best Choice labels to be turned in to the church office or give them to Shirley McKnight, with this money going to missions.
