Here’s a look ahead to what God has in store for us at First Baptist this weekend:
If You Could Ask God One Question
Tonight is the next discussion for all who are curious, questioning, or skeptical of the Christian message. The topic is “Don’t all good people go to heaven?” Join us at 7pm here at First. Christians may attend if they bring a non-Christian guest.
The men continue their study in the gospel of Mark in the library, while the ladies meet to consider Philippians 4 in Gano Chapel. Be here around 9.30am and join the conversation around God’s Word.
Sunday worship service
The congregational songs this week are as follows. (If you don’t know a song, click its title and you’ll be taken to a video or audio rendition.)
- “All Creatures of Our God and King” (newer version)
- “We Will Glorify“
- “Lamb of God“
- “My Chains are Gone“
- “There is a Higher Throne“
- “Crown Him with Many Crowns“
The sermon text will be Isaiah 11.1–12.6.
Annual Congregational Meeting
Please join us immediately after the service for our Annual Congregational Meeting. This is a very important time for our church’s life and health. Members will hear reports on various ministries, vote on officers, and consider the budget for 2015. Additionally the trustees have a recommendation for the membership regarding our boiler situation. Thank you for arranging your schedule so that you can be part of this very important conversation.
Have some extra time on your hands? The church could use your help! From updating electronic files to organizing our files, from answering the telephone to serving as a liaison for our renters, there is a place for you to serve. For more information, contact Gordon or Matthew.
Geneva Conservatory of Music Benefit Concert
Geneva Conservatory of Music meets here two afternoons a week. The professional faculty has offered to present a fund-raising concert for the boiler fund with a portion of the proceeds shared with Geneva School. Mark your calendars for 6pm on Saturday, January 31.
