News for February 2020

The big event for February is the annual Jake Buchanan Sweetheart Banquet, to be held Sunday evening, February 9, in our Fellowship Hall. It will begin at 6:00 p.m., instead of the evening service. The church will provide pork loin and chicken tenders, as well as beverages, and we should all bring dishes to pass.

There will again be opportunity for getting your picture taken in the special "photo op" space. Tammie Johnson has graciously agreed to be our photographer again. This photo op is available to anyone in the church; it might be a good time for an updated family portrait, a couple's snapshot, or just a shot of an individual. Prices are $1 for a 4x6, $4 for a 5x7, and $5 for an 8x10.

A special feature this year will be a Valentine game to find out just how much couples really know about each other. You won't want to miss out on the fun of that!!

There are always plenty of people to pray for and now is no exception. Judy Brooks has again been hospitalized recently; Faye Parker needs good healing from her knee surgery; continue to pray for Virginia Adams, June Brooks, Cricket Gray, Betty Franks, Neil and Modean McKeehan, and Virginia Cox. Pray for Marilyn Tyler, Harlace and Pat Sealy, Donald and Joyce Hogan, Kent and Marna Chapman, and Ray Hyde. Pray for Joanne Fussell and Carol Preston in the loss of their sister/aunt. Pray for the homeless and others that we feed Monday nights, that they will be filled with physical food, as well as spiritual food, and that the fellowship will be sweet. Pray that those who serve them will radiate the love of Jesus to them.

Pray for the health of Christian family relationships around the world; there are others out there "praying" for the destruction of the family unit as we know it. Pray for our brothers and sisters in the persecuted church around the world, and be thankful for the freedoms we still enjoy. Pray for Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, Evan and Cassie Nixon and others working with the youth, Jennifer Farr and musicians, choir members, teachers and leaders in the various Sunday ministry and Wednesday evening classes, and each one who has a unique part in making Andrews First Baptist Church a lighthouse for Jesus. Remember our college students, high school and middle school students, and those in elementary school; as well as teachers and staff in our schools, that they may let their lights shine for Jesus.

Happy Valentine's Day!
