COMING IN MARCH

“GENEROUS LIFE”

Sunday Morning Small Group Study

For the month of March each class, from our children to our senior adults, will be studying the bible study called “Generous Life” March is our stewardship emphasis.

The purpose of the emphasis is to  educate each member of the importance of giving back to the ministries here at First Baptist.

Generous Life will help all members of First Baptist Church identify the type of giver they are and the kind of giver God is making them to be.

Join us each Sunday at 9:15 a.m. Looking forward to seeing you!

BIG THANK YOU!

Wanda and I would like to say thank you to our church family for your prayers, support, and contributions to a group of  Army soldiers overseas. We shipped 18 boxes of assorted snacks, personal hygiene supplies, drinks and much more. Total weight of supplies were 510 lbs.

Our son and the others soldiers send their thanks to all. He said, “It’s a great feeling to see all of these care packages come in.”

Thank you for making a difference all the way around the world!
