Women’s Fellowship: Desserts & Drawing
Tuesday, May 31 7:00 p.m.
Bring a favorite dessert to share and enjoy some coloring together (calories don’t count!). As the drawing winds down we’ll engage in a discussion of wisdom from strong and sassy women, those women being ourselves and some intriguing biblical characters.
Sunday, June 5 - Nicaragua Mission Trip information session
There will be a Nicaragua Mission Trip information session on Sunday, June 5th following worship in the Lounge at the rear of the Sanctuary. This meeting is for all who may be interested in learning more about a First Baptist Church Mis-sion Trip to Nicaragua, taking place from February 17th-26th, 2017. The trip is sponsored by the FBC Missions Committee and led by Kent Harrop. In Nicaragua, we will be hosted by AMOS, a health related organization that ministers to rural communities. We will be assigned a village to live in for several days and a project to work on. Possible projects include: building bio-sand water filters, building or repairing a clinic, assisting with a health information fair. Who can go? Anyone with a willingness to live in rustic conditions, do good work and meet wonderful people. Nicaragua is rated one of the poorest, yet safest, countries in Central America to travel in and will touch your heart for a lifetime. Come and have your questions answered. Is God calling you to Nicaragua?
Sunday, June 12 - “Breakfast-for-Lunch” and Africa Trip slideshow
The Mission group will be hosting a “Breakfast-for-Lunch” luncheon immediately following worship on Sunday, June 12th. The group promises there will not be snow on that day, even though the past several breakfast-for-lunch luncheons have included that feature. Following lunch all will be treated to a program presented by Terri and Ed McFadden on their recent trip to Africa. The proceeds will benefit upcoming mission trips — there are still a few slots open for this year’s summer Mission Trip to North Carolina. Speak to Beth Loughhead if you have any questions about the trip or would like to participate.
