I am excited about our new addition to our staff here at FBC. Although, I don’t think she realizes what she has signed up for. She has just took a position inside of the best church in the WORLD. She will be loved, looked after, cared for, affirmed in her calling, and even have help restoring and restarting her life. I believe that the two will fit together just fine. The student ministry is hosting a Christmas party at the Rivers Community in West Bainbridge. They have 147 children within that community and I am trying to get a $5 gift for all of them. We need help with people taking a name and adopting a child. If you are interested in helping, please see me ASAP. The party will be December 14th so I will need the gifts by the 13th. If you haven’t noticed, our student ministry has made “Inside Out” t -shirts, long sleeve shirts and even hoodies. These are to promote our ministry within the community as well as a way of helping us raise money for our Honduras trip in the summer. The t-shirts are $10, the long sleeves are $15, and the hoodies are $20. If you are interested, please see me or Alli Guy.

All Senior Adults are encouraged to join with the Saints Alive Choir as we share Christmas carols. Meet with us at the following times and ministry locations: Monday, Dec. 10th , 9:30 AM Bainbridge Healthcare 10:45 AM Memorial Manor Monday, Dec. 17th 9:15 AM Willow Ridge 10:45 AM Riverside Place

Harold and Barbara Fleshman prepared turkey, dressing and giblet gravy for our enjoyment and there were over 45 other delectable dishes of food from which to choose. The next meeting of the Fellowship Club will be Monday, January, 14th as we host the Bowen Baptist Association’s quarterly Senior Adult gathering. Mark this date on your calendar and invite a friend for this special event.
