Charlotte and I headed out on vacation Saturday morning. Dr Rich Halcombe is preaching in my place.He is the Director of the Metro Columbus Baptist Association. You will enjoy his message and more updates about the work of Southern Baptists in central Ohio as well as at the Stowe Center. I will be back Sunday August 29.
Debbie will be out of the office all next week as well while she is on vacation. If you have an emergency need, please contact one of our Deacons.
Remember our "Bag It" campaign. Off to a great start. August 29 is the deadline to bring in nonperishable food items for the Stowe Center Food Pantry.
Sunday September 19 is the date for our Fall Celebration/Annual Church Picnic. It will be here at church this year because crazy covid restrictions do not allow us to reserve a park at a time that works for our church family. Many parks do not even allow for reservations this year. God will bless this anyway. Our guest preacher that day will be Jeremy Westbrook, the new Executive Director for our State Convention of Baptists. more info to come later.
Sunday September 5 will be our next Leadership Team meeting at 5PM in the foyer.
Several people from our church are in quarantine this week. Just pray for everybody to be safe cause the virus is spreading fast, but remain faithful and active. No youth (6th grade thru 12th grade) Sunday School or Ignite Youth group Sunday night. We will pick back up on Sunday August 29. I am asking all youth to stay home this Sunday. We will not let this stop us or divide us. Live in the light of eternity.
See ya soon,
