SBA 2010 Annual:
I will get to you changes in the SBA Annual ASAP. The format of the SBA directory will be changing.  I'll send  with the annual the new address etc. however the directory will be a couple of months before you will see it.  It would help immensely if you would send to me a photo of your church building, pastor and each staff member (with wife and at home family?), anyone you think should be in the directory.  Mailing address, phone #, Cell #s,   birthdays, anniversary, children living in the home.  Each church will have a page to start their section.  Each staff member will have a page.  Room to write changes as needed. Any other thoughts would be appreciated.  All photos need to be in the JPG format please.

Annual Church Profiles:
Thank you to all the Pastors, Clerks/Secretaries, and all those who provided them info for the ACP.  I know it is a  job to get it all together.  For those who sent yours in for me to enter, I will get all of that back to you by mail.  For the couple of churches who are still working on it we have a little time but please get it done soon.

Needs for Petra Baptist Fellowship.
A Praise to the Lord from Petra, a piano was donated to them from a member at Dayspring Baptist Church.  Pastor Williams and Bonnie Giles have both sent their heartfelt appreciation for this and the other items from other churches that have helped to fill this need. 

Prayer Needs:
For Grace:
Lenny and Sherry and the church there in Rogue River.  The matter is not settled to the satisfaction of the pastors in the Rogue River area.  Pray for God's protection but mostly that He would be glorified through all of what is happening there.  Pray for the Youth and parents who also are affected in so many ways by this and other school boards.
