March, 27th - Book Group Meeting!
The next meeting of the Book Group will feature a discussion of “A New England Girlhood” by Lucy Larcom, the usual time to enjoy a bring-your-own lunch, and special guest Virginia Currier, a longtime volunteer at the Beverly Historical Society.
Saturday, March 28th 8:30 AM-NOON
Your Church Council and Ministerial Team invite you to help set the direction of First Baptist Church in Beverly over these next 12 – 24 months. We will consider new ways that God is calling us to live out our faith. At the end of this exciting morning we will have specific plans to guide the energy and creativity of our congregation. We need your voice, and we ask you to please make this Call to Action on March 28th a priority!
Saturday, April 11th - Super Mission Saturday Returns!
The Missions Committee is asking for all hands on deck as we undertake many, many service projects in and around FBC and our community. They’ve set the date for Saturday, April 11th, which (keep your fingers crossed) means we won’t be shoveling snow! Projects from last year involved FBC’ers and friends of all ages, skillsets, and strengths, and this year we’ll be looking for nothing less! We’ll once again be partnering with Harborlight Community Partners to go out into the community to help improve living spaces, our children will be involved in a project specially designed for small hands and young minds, and many small “home-improvement” projects are sure to be spotted going on at 221 Cabot Street. We ask that you mark your calendars and save the date for something super on April 11th!
Wednesday, April 22nd - Earth Day
As spring slowly approaches and we start to think about being outside again (but not to shovel!), you may want to consider some volunteer activities. The Ipswich River Watershed Association (IRWA) has many volunteer opportunities ranging from water quality monitoring to taking photographs to garden projects. IRWA members and volunteers "work together to restore the river and ensure a sustainable water supply for the region.
