We are hosting the “unmentionables” room by providing needed socks and underwear for the kids. Be on the lookout July 1st – July 22nd for the cards with the kids sizes. All information will be at the Ministry Table in the Commons.
Thank you VBS Volunteers!
Thanks again to the many VBS volunteers for their dedication and hard work in this year’s Bible School. The lives of the children have been touched because of your faithfulness. Our daily average attendance was 285 children and 185 workers. We had 10 salvation decisions and will have follow up discussions with more children.
Family Worship Day - July 1 - Family Worship Day for Children will be Sunday, July 1st. Revised programming will be as follows for kids 1st-6th grade: Kids will attend worship with their parents and we will have a special programming in Genesis Lab while their parents attend LifeGroup. Child care is available for birth through Kindergarten for the entire morning in the Preschool area.
The Senior Adults will have their regular potluck lunch on June 26 at Noon. Come early to socialize! The program will be presented by Jerry Miller from the Caroline Baptist Association. Also, all Seniors are encouraged to check the table outside the Fellowship Hall for information and sign-ups for upcoming events. There are some exciting events planned! Money and deposit times are listed there.
Would you like to meet and greet new and current members of our church? Being a Preschool/Children’s computer check-in volunteer is the spot for you! Check-in volunteers serve on a rotating basis and are needed before both worship hours. If you would like to volunteer each Sunday morning for approximately 30 minutes, please contact Caroline in the Next Generation office at 843-5472 or email@example.com.
Did you know we have a special needs ministry at FBC? This is currently a small ministry that has the potential to do great things for our community. 90% of families who have a child with special needs do not attend church. They feel unwelcome and afraid their child’s needs cannot be met. We have a large number of these families in Cabot. In order for us to reach this mission field, we ask for your help in two ways: 1) Pray for: wisdom, courage, open hearts, opportunities, and for volunteers 2) Volunteer! We are barely covering our volunteer needs now. If our ministry is to grow and reach more families, then we will need more volunteers. Requirements - Love God, Love People. All other training will be provided. For more information, please contact Caroline in the Children’s Ministry office at 843-5472.
Burleson Family Commissioning Celebration: Please join us in the Fellowship Hall, July 8th at 6:30 PM, as we gather and pray for the Burleson Family who will be serving abroad by teaching English as a second language.
Giving over the Summer - As summer has “officially” started, there will be many occasions that you and your family will be able to enjoy cantaloupe – at the beach, camping, the ballpark, family reunions . . . While you are away from our Sunday services enjoying your summer activities with cantaloupe, you can stay connected with your FBC family through the livestream of services on Sunday morning or watching the service later in the archives. In addition, you have several options for getting your tithes and offerings to the church. SecureGive is our electronic giving mode. With SecureGive, you can choose online giving with one-time and/or recurring donations, the SecureGive app, or text-to-give. You can also have a recurring ACH draft setup through the church office. If you want to setup ACH draft or have any other questions, email or call our Financial Ministry Assistant, Cheryl, firstname.lastname@example.org or 501.843.5472. Livestream, archives, and giving information can all be found here.
