Upcoming Events

Special Olympics
This year, Cherokee County will host the Far West Spring Games.  On Friday, April 26th, starting at 9:30 am, more than 300 athletes from Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Macon, and Swain Counties, and Qualla Boundary will compete in track and field events at Murphy High School.  Our church is a proud sponsor - we will provide two tents, tables with snacks, coolers with drinks, and willing workers to serve these deserving athletes.  If you would like to help in this worthy effort, please meet Pastor Calvin there on that day, anytime from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm.


Who's Your One?
Please pickup a Prayer Guide and a Bookmark as you leave the sanctuary today.  These resources will help you in this challenging evangelism initiative: "Who's Your One?"  Imagine if every believer could answer that question with one name - one person they are praying for and sharing the gospel with in 2019.  Every one counts.  Intentionally share the gospel with one person this year.  While we can't do everything, we can all take responsibility for one.  May the Lord bless our efforts.


"It's Your Serve"
Our Truett Baptist Association is sponsoring a Deacon Training event.  It will be held on Saturday, April 27, at Peachtree Memorial Baptist Church from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Men, please mark your calendars now to attend this encouraging conference with fellow servants of the Lord.  "It's Your Serve: Preparing for Effective Deacon Ministry" will be led by Lester Evans.  Lester is a former Pastor from Franklin, a former Director of Missions for the Macon Baptist Association, and is currently head of the Association Missions Team for our NC Baptist State Convention.  His presentation is designed to benefit Deacons at all levels of experience - new Deacons as well as seasoned Deacons.  Lunch and snacks will be served.  There is no charge, but reservations are required for purposes of food preparation.  Please contact Mrs. Jennifer Farr at our church office at 828.321.5112 by Thursday, April 18, so she can report our total number to the association office.


Celebration of Ministry
Vengeance Creek Baptist Church invites you to a celebration of Pastor Fred Lunsford's 70 years in the gospel ministry, Sunday, April 28, 1:00-3:00 pm.  Please come by the fellowship hall and honor Bro. Fred on this afternoon.  Food will be served.
