Weekly News 6/15/11

Good Afternoon Everyone,
Everyone is busy with Summer time activities already.  Ken and I enjoyed the concert last night at Foothills and 'HOPE' from CBU.  They did a great job.  A couple of the songs were so very thought provoking and heart searching.  Beautiful.  They are traveling the West through some time in August.  They will be in Roseberg, OR tonight.

Looking forward to the Prospect Anniversary.

Looking for someone to help me sort out the Facebook thing.  Still is not what I would like it to be.  If you would like to be on the FB prayer group, FB office@siskiyoubaptist.org.  I added those that are friends who possible would be interested.  If you are one but do not want to be on the prayer list I will be happy to remove you.

The office will be closed on July 4th.  August 5 - 14  the office will be closed and I will not be in communication with the lower 48 very often.  Just because I'm nosey, I'll probably call someone just to bug them!!

Are you checking in with the SBC Annual Meeting?  You can go to bpnews.net/blog and  get the gist of what is going on.  (it starts at the bottom of the blog)  Some video of New IMB President encouraging our churches to connect in prayer for the Unreached Unengaged People Groups of the world, over 3800.  They also have the resolutions and who was and wasn't elected.  I have enjoyed reading, hearing, and seeing some of the event.

Are you a worship leader in your church?  Would you be interested in getting together with the other worship leaders of the SBA to get to know each other, pray, see what happens from there?  E-mail  Ruth Martin,  ruca777@ccountry.net,  at Foothills and let her know that you are.

I would like to get our clerks and ladies or men who help with the office issues of their church.  Give me a call and we'll set a time and place.  Maybe lunch in Medford?  End of July?  This is for a time of encouraging before the new year begins.

If you have an event for the Weekly News please let me know.  I try my best not to forget to get your event in so if it is not there give me a shout!
