The Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) was formed in 1888 as an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention for the purpose of religious evangelism. WMU meets once a month from 10:30am-11:30am for meeting/snack in the fellowship hall. See Judy Bunton for more information.

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 operation_christmas_childcollecting items to go into the shoe boxes for 2022.  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.   
October is OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD shoebox time.  Begin now finding items to put in one or two boxes for children who wouldn’t have Christmas any other way. Pick up a box (or two) from the church foyer to fill and bring back to the church by early November.  Our goal this year is to have a total of 100 boxes to send to the kids.  You WILL want to be a part of this special ministry effort.
Please pray for God’s presence with each of these boxes and also for the children who will receive them.

Welcome To Our Fellowship

***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!!! 
Pastor James


 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.

“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”Philippians 1:3–5

As the regular school year comes to a close and summer school begins, this only means that the summer is upon us and with that being said, make sure you are reading the weekly bulletin and our monthly newsletter so that you are aware of what will be taking place in the month of June as well as July, we can never be too early in preparing for these events.

In June, now I realize the delivering of snack boxes to each Emergency Responders facility will have been accomplished by the time you read this article, but I want to thank everyone who help make this outreach a success for Christ. 

On June 9th will be our quarterly business meeting following our morning Worship service. This is a great opportunity for each of you to be aware of and participate in the business of the church. And then on June 16th we celebrate Father’s Day. And then on June 23rd will be the LORD’S Supper, this is a time of remembrance of what our Savior and LORD did for us on the cross. Please come prepared – heart, soul, mind and strength to worship the LORD.

And what a great fellowship opportunity we will have on June 30th as we will have our PICINC IN THE PARK at 10:45am at Bartlett Park. Bring your Bibles, lawn chairs, your favorite picnic food, and of course, yourself and lets enjoy a great time of fellowship, unity and worship together as the body of CHRIST. More information will be coming in the days ahead about this event.

Now in July will be our VBS 2024 – “The Great Jungle Adventure” which begins on July 7th – 11th (Light Supper) @5-6pm and (VBS) @6-8:30pm; with family night on July 12th more info to follow in next month’s newsletter.

VBS is the #1 Evangelist Outreach for kids, and we don’t want to pass up a great opportunity to reach kids for Christ.  But we need your help to pull this off, so please, get with Leesa to see where we can plug you in for VBS 2024.  May God continue to richly bless Copeland Baptist Church for doing the work of an evangelist.

A very grateful laborer,

Pastor James
