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,

Pastor Billy

If we do not have a team trained and ready before August there may not be a class for children on Sunday mornings.Let me know if this is a possibility for you.

Also, we need a volunteer to teach two year olds in Sunday School.

Women's Ministry

Be part of participating & contributing to our mission (Go in Christ & Grow in Christ) through small prayer groups. Just before the Great Beach landing and battle on the Beaches of Normandy that we commemorated on June 6, the joint forces bombed the beaches before sending out the troops. We invite women to join us to bomb with prayer the areas that we are sending out and going in Christ for the upcoming month. Come pray with us.

Information & Sign up now in the foyer at the Women's ministry table

Our Church Mission is:

Go in Christ,

Grow in Christ.

Last Sunday, we learned about the Lost Sheep. This Sunday looked at the Lost Sons in Luke 15. It is easy for people to get far from God, even if you attend church every week. We reach out to bring them back home. Some will be reached, and others won't. Let us be found as effective disciplemakers. Our goal is more and better disciples. This requires us to focus more on those we are serving in our networks and in our ministries.

Women's Prayer Battle

Exciting news! The Women's Prayer Battle begins this Monday, April 26 at 6:30 pm here in our church foyer! This is an opportunity to pray together in-person. The foyer will be set up in a way that if you can't make it at 6:30 pm, you can still come in late. If you have particular prayer concerns and/or upcoming events in the next month, please email them to me the Sunday before (April 25). The plan is to have the Women's Prayer Battle on the last Monday of each month. With Memorial Day being the last Monday in May, we'll have the Prayer Battle on Monday, May 24; the week of VBS, it will be scheduled for Monday, July 19. Debbie Yaniga Annie Armstrong Offering for North American missions total is $2519. Great giving! Today's World:"Hard to go back to normal when normal disappeared." This is so true of the times we live in. Requires us to be: Faithful Available Teachable We are raising the bar for all leaders as we move forward. The key thing is being teachable. We must change or we will get left behind by our world. Change is what we will excel at. Stay tuned for exciting things in disciple making. VBS volunteers sign up...stop by the display table and sign up in the foyer. Don't delay. We give the date early so we can plan for this so come on and make Kendra's job easier.
