The Executive Board of the ABW Ministries met on Sept. 8th. This was a fall planning meeting and we have several events coming up in October. That’s right around the corner ladies! So get your calendars ready!
Saturday, October 4th at Breckenridge Baptist will be the Raleigh Baptist Association Fall Rally. Registration is at 9:30 and the meeting will start at 10:00. We will be taking our church van and will be meeting at the church at 8:30 am. Parking will be available on the college side of the church. This is always a fun event and I’m hoping to have a large turnout. The speaker is going to be Lisa Simmons who is a very dynamic speaker and should be very interesting.
We are asked to bring individually wrapped snacks to the meeting which will be going to the Raleigh Regional Cancer Center. There are times when patients are there for treatment all day and they need these snacks. Each church was asked to briefly speak about a “special community service” that their church provides. Our special service that we are highlighting is the “Backpack Ministry”. Helen Greene and Joyce Mills will be making this presentation.
There is also going to be a special surprise presentation for recognition for 93 years of service for Eula Stephens. This should be an exciting day for all ABW members. Please plan to attend. There will be a sign up sheet in the office for van riders.
We will be having an ABW general meeting on Tues. October 14th at 6:00. Dessert refreshments will be provided. Each of our officers will be giving a brief comment of their office and their duties. The devotion will be “Come To The Table” by Karen Nicholson of First Baptist Hurricane. This will be presented by our officers. Please come out and support our ABW ministries.
Also don’t forget Women’s Day at the West Virginia American Baptist Convention. That will be Thursday, October 16th at the Vienna Baptist Church.
So you see ladies? We have a very busy month ahead of us. It’s time to get up, get out and give God the Glory!!!
