October 2018 Calendar


WORSHIP with us and our guest minister, Jerry Heslinga, each week until Pastor Jeremy Smith joins us in November!


Men's Choir:  Sunday morning, October 21st, and each 3rd Sunday, our men sing His message during the morning worship service.  Rehearsal is at 10:00am in the sanctuary and ALL men are welcomed to join in.

Wednesday Night Bible Study:  This week is our end of year business meeting starting at 7:00pm instead of Bible Study.  But please join us next Wednesday for a meal at 5:30pm followed by Bible Study at 6:30pm.

Choir Rehearsal:   Choir will be on Thursday this week due to Business Meeting - starting at 7:00pm.  Yes!  We've started rehearsing for Christmas cantata - JOIN US!

Discipleship Training:  We're studying the Book of Job on Sunday evenings at 7:00pm and you can jump in at any time.   Click here for details.

Ladies Bible Study:  The study is on the book of Genesis.  The group meets every Tuesday in the Fellowship Hall from 10:15am-12:30pm.  Click here for details.


Fall Festival is upon us!  Plan to enjoy yourselves and invite the neighbors.  Saturday, October 27th, beginning at 5pm.   Plenty of opportunities to be involved.  See the sign-up sheet in FH hallway or Macy S. or just call the church office (804-932-4906) to volunteer.

Pastor: We are pleased Jeremy Smith will join us as our full-time pastor effective Nov. 1. He and his wife, Audra, and three of his five children will be moving from Travelers Rest, SC.  Be sure to thank the members of the Pastor Search Committee for their diligence.

Pounding:  An old-fashioned pounding is in progress for our new pastor and family.  Through the end of the month, we are collecting the basic kitchen and home items to help welcome The Smith's to our church family.  Some ideas: napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, flour, sugar, dish detergent, hand soap, disinfecting wipes.  Place your donations in the bin marked "Proper Pounding" in the Sunday School wing.  Any questions, call the church office (804-932-4906). 

Shoeboxes:  It's time to fill shoeboxes for Christmas for the children overseas.  Please reach under your pew for a box or two to fill and return by the end of October.  See Marie W. for questions.

Ms. Helen's Cookbooks are back! By popular demand, there are nine original cookbooks available for purchase at $10 each. See Stella S. to purchase yours. Great Christmas presents!

Christmas Help: Please see Stacy S. if you know a family or individual who needs Christmas help this year.  


Alma Hunt Missions:  We more than doubled our goal of $200, reaching $530!  Thanks to all who contributed.  Alma Hunt was a native Virginian who was known worldwide for her missions service and her unswerving dedication to the cause of Christ.  The offering provides funding for all Woman's Missionary Union of Virginia missions and ministries and makes possible other special ministries, outreach projects and initiatives not funded through regular streams.

Budget and Nominations:  Your copy of the Budget and listing of Officers and Volunteers as approved at our business meeting are available at the doors to the sanctuary.  The new church year begins Oct. 1.

Afghan Raffle and Gift Baskets Fundraiser:  For signage at our new church building. Please bid on the beautiful baskets/crafts in the Sunday School wing next to the secretary's office. Ask for raffle tickets ($1 each) to win one of the four handmade afghans located in the Sunday School wing. Ends this Sunday, May 6th during fellowship meal.

Dover Baptist Association:  Rescheduled date is Wednesday, May 23rd, from 6:30pm-7:30pm in the Fellowship Hall. This meeting, requested by Rose Mary Stewart and Bob Dale, is to provide information concerning Dover Baptist Association and their shared role as intentional interim Executive Director of Missions. All members, regular attendees and leaders of our church, are encouraged to participate.  They want to discover how the Dover Association can strengthen our current church ministries and what new ministries need their support. See Bobby B. for questions.

Personalized Bricks:  For a donation of $125/brick, you can help us personalize our new building's entrance ways and aid in covering costs.  Contact Stacy S. or call the church office with questions.
