Many thanks to the members of Copeland Baptist Church for bringing items this past year for the Operation Christmas Child shoe-boxes. WMU will be collecting items to go into the shoe boxes for 2021. The drop off box is located inside the front entry way.
Each month, throughout the year, will have specific item that will be needed to fill each shoe box at the end of the year. And this list will be displayed above the drop off box, as to make everyone aware of what can be given to Operation CHRISTmas Child.
It is time to begin gathering items for the Operation Christmas Shoeboxes next year. The _______ items to bring are _______________ or misc. Place these items in the box in the church foyer. We sent 61 boxes this past year and the goal for next year is 75. We will need everyone’s help.
UPDATE: We have met our goal of 75 boxes, actually we packed 77 boxes for the 2020 Operation Christmas Child. GOOD JOB COPELAND BAPTIST CHURCH!
Please pray for God’s presence with each of these boxes and also for the children who will receive them.
***Copeland Baptist Church would like to welcome to our fellowship –
NEW MEMBERS: Welcome to the Copeland Baptist Church family! We are truly excited that you have made the commitment to follow Jesus Christ with us as we walk the faith journey together. As your pastor, I would like to extend a personal invitation to attend Sunday School @ 9:30-10:30 am. This is a two-fold blessing in that this will help you grow closer to Christ as well as share your life with us. Hope to see you there!
GOD is GOOD!!!
Hebrews 10:25 – And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Happy Resurrection Day! This Day is the pivotal point of Christianity; this day sets Christianity apart from all other religions because our Lord and Savior came up from the grave and the grave is and forever will be empty. He has risen just like He said He would. By the time you read this we will have done (3) parking lot services starting with our Good Friday parking lot service; this is a sobering reminder of what Jesus went through to save us from God’s judgement and wrath.
And then the 2nd parking lot service was our Children’s Easter Parking Lot Outreach Event where the kids as well as parents got to hear the true meaning of Easter. The kids played Resurrection Bingo that went along with the Easter story and the kids got the chance to win prizes and when the Easter event was done each car got a sack of candy for each person in the car along with a track that talked about how much Jesus loved them and how and why He died for them and a big thank you to Tammy Auxier and her helpers for all your hard work to reach kids for Jesus and doing it in a fun way.
And the final parking lot service was Sunday morning, Resurrection Sunday, was our Sunrise parking lot service. What a great weekend to celebrate the death, burial and the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Following our Sunrise parking lot service we had refreshments before Sunday school @9:30 and then Easter Service @10:45. What an impacting weekend. BUT let us not forget what Jesus did for us to redeem us from the penalty of our sins.
Now with all that said, coming on the 24th of April @1:30pm, we have the opportunity to share Jesus love in a practical way by going throughout our church neighborhood passing out flower seeds. So please come and join us as we not only share Jesus love but we also fellowship with each other. Also, please continue to pray for one another and be ready to serve in the months ahead as other events and activities come up. Let’s roll up our sleeves and work together to help build the Kingdom, one soul at a time.
We serve a risen Savior,
