From the Missions Director

Can you believe how this year has flown by? It’s November, and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. We have so much to be thankful for this year, individually and as a church family. Together, we have accomplished much for the Lord.

November brings the end to our drive for the NC Missions Offering. Our goal was $1200.00 and we raised $1100.00! Thank you to all who gave so generously to this offering. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering will be collected in December. Our 2017 goal is $1500.00.

Also this month, we begin collecting new toys for the Baptist Toy Store. You may purchase any toys you prefer for boys or girls and place them in the back of the Chapel. The Baptist Toy Store helps struggling families in our community to have at least one gift for their children on Christmas morning.

The Change 4 Change Ministry has been underway all year, and all the loose change from the offering plate and piggy banks has been collected and combined. Those monies will be used to help families in need with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. If you are able, would you consider making a gift to the Benevolence Fund for the winter months? We usually see a rise in calls for heating fuel and food during this time of year.

The Bread of Life Food Pantry items for November are: canned soup, crackers, baby food, and toilet paper. Thank you for your faithfulness to this ministry.
