Weekly News 713/11

Hi Everyone I hope you are having a bright, cool, Summer day!! Maybe some light rain?  It's all great 'cause God is showing us his blessing of changing weather and that He watches over us each day.

Keep the Grace on the Go group in your prayers.  They are traveling home and will have many more opportunities to witness for Jesus as they come.  Be in prayer for them.

So I am messing with Face Book to get it to look like what we would like that page to look like.  Please, if you are a Face Booker, please LIKE Siskiyou Baptist Association.  You will get  info quicker there than most any place else.  We need at least 25 to be able to do some other things with it.  Thank you for your patience as my little grey cells work overtime to figure this all out.  Because of dropping the other page there is now 2 prayer groups.  This is in the process of being combined into one.  If you will let me know, I will add you to that group.
 


A Face Book correspondence with Ron Lloyd.
 

(Me) FYI for those who do not read their E-mail that often, Ron Lloyd has resigned his pastorate to do interim work. He will be with College Heights through July. I have appreciated his leadership through the times of change. Thank you Ron for your years of service to the Association.
Ron Lloyd
You are welcome! I look forward to continued fellowship and service with SBA as God opens doors in the ministry of personal evangelism and discipleship training. Besides being an interim pastor, should any church need us to assist with neighborhood prayer walking and evangelism / along with establishing neighborhood bible studies, give us a call.

I also had an E-Mail short note from Cameron Camp, Illinois Valley.  He said they are busy getting a pastor .  He also mentioned that they are growing from the 4 couples so PTL for their progress.

Please keep Trinity Baptist, White City in your prayers as they are again in the process of looking for a pastor.

I read an interesting article from the Barna Group today regarding what the communities think the churches should be doing or not doing.  This question was asked: " the survey question asked, Many churches and faith leaders want to contribute positively to the common good of their community. What does your community need, if anything, that you feel churches could provide?"  It was interesting that the answers were not  of a spiritual nature but of needs.  Go to http://www.barna.org/congregations-articles/502-do-churches-contribute-to-their-communities

Got an E-mail from Gwen Fink at Lifeway, Beaverton.  I will forward that to you all today.

Bill Griffith of the NWBC Disaster Relief sent an announcement regarding training, this will also be forwarded to you.

A copy of the resource called:  "Becoming a Contaigous Christian"  will be available here at the SBA office for you to check it out.  The NWBC has it at a really good price.  If you have not received the announcement let me know and I will get it to you.

The Camp information is on the Web page, www.siskiyoubaptist.org, you can print all you need from there.  A missing page the tells you what to bring to camp will be attached to this and placed on the web page.  Thanks Dwayne and Tammy for getting this together.
