News for August 2019

There were 38 who enjoyed the supper meal Thursday, July 18. In fact, they enjoyed it so much that the Planning Team has decided to have at least the next meeting as supper, as well. With it being light out later in the summer months, it makes driving at night a bit easier. Plus this way those who are still working will be free to join us.

Following supper, about 20 of the Young At Hearts headed over to Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters camp for the enactment of the end times. The program was well received by all. Thanks to Wendell and Bettie Barfield for their "farm to table" centerpieces of fresh veggies and fruits, and thanks to all for the $42 given to help the Cherokee County Food Bank. The need there is always great, and our gifts are very much appreciated.

Our regular August meal (SUPPER) will be held Thursday, August 15, at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. This will be the meeting where we will celebrate everyone's birthday, so it will be IMPERATIVE for you to sign up for this one, along with the MONTH of your birthday. (Date and year are not needed.) The sign-up sheet will be on the bulletin board in the foyer.

Thank God for the ministry of prayer! There are many in our church congregation who need a special healing touch, including Imagean Adams, Harlace Sealy, Robin Gibson, Judy Brooks, Cricket Gray, June Brooks, Dorcas Phillips, Roger Mays, Bettie Barfield, Donald Hogan, Virginia Adams, Priscilla Guffey, Virginia Cox, Marilyn Tyler, Bob and Doris Kummer, and Barb Jones' Baby Eli. Continue to pray for Kent Chapman in the Murphy Rehab Center, as well as his wife Marna at home. Pray for good, strong Christian family relationships for our church family, as well as all Christian families around the world. Also, pray for Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, those working with the youth, choir director and musicians, teachers and leaders in the various Sunday ministries, the outreach to the hungry on Monday nights, and each one who has a unique part in making Andrews First Baptist Church a lighthouse for Jesus. 

Praise the Lord for a successful Vacation Bible School, where many hands made light work of decorating, feeding everyone, and sharing the Gospel through the Bible stories, missions, music, crafts, and even recreation Praise God as well for a generous offering to help the Monday night outreach at our church and the Saturday outreach of Highways and Hedges. Pray for those traveling, at home and away, and for students getting ready to go back to school ~ some locally and some to colleges away from home (some for the first time). Pray also that God will send just the right youth leader to minister at our church.
