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.
The Food Pantry Ministry is an ongoing project. You may bring any boxes or canned food items as well as toilet paper, laundry soap, etc. Put your items in the box in the foyer. Financial donations for the food pantry are also welcomed. Everything is appreciated. REMEMBER: If anyone in the church has a need, contact the Church office @ 279-9216 or Leesa Kerns (816) 273-7346
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 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.
***Copeland Baptist Church would like to welcome to our fellowship – Wanda Vieth and Kali Maloney
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.
“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 your pastor, I want to personally thank each and everyone who helped, those who prayed for outreach block party, whether you could make it or not, you were valuable for the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our community.
Now, with that being said, we have several events coming up in the month of June and July as well. We can never be too early in preparing for these events. In June we celebrate Father’s Day on June 18th, and then on June 24th will be our Emergency Responders Outreach. We will need help preparing the snack boxes as well as delivering them to each Emergency Responders facility. Please bring snacks foods to the church and if you have any questions, see Lori McClain. Thank you Church.
And after the Emergency Responders Outreach Event we must turn our focus and prayer to the No Hunger Summer ministry beginning on July 3rd-August 18th. And then our VBS 2023 – “Keepers of the Kingdom” which begins on July 23-27 (Light Supper) @5-6pm and (VBS) @6-8:30pm; with family night on July 28th 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 2023. May God continue to richly bless Copeland Baptist Church for doing the work of an evangelist.
A very grateful laborer,
