Weekly News 9/21/11

Hi everyone,
I cannot believe how technology is changing.  I am so glad my God is the same and I can depend on His promises they do not flip flop around like this 'ole world.  At the same time getting settled into a rut is not good either.  What rut are you in that needs to change?  How about your church?  Just askin'.

Okay the big news (hopefully you all have the e-mail already)  Pastor Dave Kanton has put in for his resignation for the end of the month.  The E-Mail has all the info regarding a retirement dinner for Dave on October 21st.  I do hope that at least a couple of folks from each church can make it to this time of celebration.

You also should have received a note regarding Cecil Sims this AM.

Dr. Crews’ surgery is now scheduled for October 4. 

Thank you all who have responded to the Pastor and Church pages.  I will send back to you the corrected copy for further comment.  If at that time all is well please let me know and I will start printing!

An additional E-mail address for Larry Brons:  pastorlarry.brons@gmail.com   Thank you.

Please help out at Lampman Road Community Garden,  
We are hoping that those that work during the week could make a special effort to come on Saturday to help us conquer all these tasks that are necessary for us to continue to bless the community for Jesus.
If anyone has questions please feel free to contact the following people:
Curt Schuler(Garden Manager)                Home: (541) 855-2576                Cell: (541)603-4781
Kevin Darr(Pastor)                                 Cell: (541) 291-3040
 
Annual Church Profiles: I haven't heard but from 2 churches so I assume the rest of you have received your packet.  Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you or your clerk in this matter.  The sooner the better.

I just want to remind you that the SBA Weekly News is on the www.siskiyoubaptist.org web site.  If you don't see what info you want here it may be there.  I am also a phone call away either at 541-956-7588 or my cell 541-659-7261.  Probably the cell phone is the best to call.  Also if you "Like" Siskiyou Baptist Association on Facebook you will get updates and reminders there as well.

Speaking of Face Book, We also have a prayer request group.  It is a closed group so it only goes to those who want to be on it.  If you are on Face Book, friend me (Nancy Goss) and tell me you want to be on the Prayer request group.  It will come up on your page when there is a request or answer or comments.

Feel free to copy the prayer requests below to give to your folks for their corporate and personnel prayer times.

Please be in prayer for a treasurer for SBA for the next year.   If you know of someone who is familiar with the job of treasurer/bookkeeping please let someone on the Admin Team know.   I do most of the work  so this person would be an overseer and report to the SBA meetings.  This person needs to be an active member of a cooperating church.  This person would be a signer on the SBA account as part of the position.  Any other questions contact Larry Brons at 541-226-6467 he can tell you what is really involved.

Also information regarding Pastor Cluster Groups Beginning in the Fall.  If you are interested call:  Joe Flegal at 360-882-2121 or E-mail at:  clusters@nwbaptist.org  Register as soon as possible.  I understand there is a group forming in Medford.
