Join Us This Sunday at First Baptist Church in Beverly!

11:00 AM — Worship / Children’s Church School
Join us this Sunday in worship as we continue our three-part sermon series on the parable of The Prodigal Son and the journeys of the younger son, the elder son, and this week, the father. Communion will be prepared and served by our Deacons and we will be collecting a special fellowship offering for One Great Hour of Sharing, an ecumenical group actively at work aiding those suffering in the midst of the current refugee crisis.

Noon — All-Church Meeting
The Church Family is encouraged to stay for an All-Church meeting directly after worship on Sunday, October 4th. The purpose of the meeting is to vote on a significant change in the structure of our affordable-housing satellite ministry, Harborlight Community Partners, a change which will alter the relationship between the Church and HCP. This results from the opportunity to merge with the housing arm of another North Shore non-profit. The goal of this merger is to ensure that HCP will be able to grow and create even more opportunities for affordable housing of all types (family, elder and singles) in order to address the increasingly dire shortage of housing in our area. Child care will be provided.
1:00 PM — Church Council Meeting
There will be a meeting of the Church Council directly after the All-Church meeting on Sunday. On the agenda are the formation of an ad hoc committee to bring to fruition improvements to the sound, lighting and AV capabilities of the sanctuary, a stated goal in the 2012 Growing Edges plan for the church; financial projections for the next half decade; and a discussion of items to be funded from the endowment. As always, anyone in the church family who wishes to attend a Church Council meeting is welcome to come and listen and share ideas; only council members have a vote, though. There will be a light lunch served at the council meeting.
3:00 PM — Middle School Fellowship
6:00 PM — Senior High Fellowship
