Weekly News 1/12/11

Good Morning Everyone!
I thank the Lord for His Good News.  What we hear through out our days is pretty sad.  As we know, and share, through out our lives, even the bad worldly news is surrounded by our Lord's light of love when we really look.  Have a great week and let me know if I missed anything!!  N

Just came in,  you may already have this in your box from Danny Kuykendall.
From Phil Peters, Region 2 Team Leader
I have several scholarships available to cover the registration fee for the Great Commandment Prayer Conference in Jefferson OR which is January 17 – 19. They will put you up and feed you like a king. Pastor’s spouse can attend free.  Your only expense may be a meal as you travel and the cost of gas to get there.
This is a great conference on Leadership and Prayer and an opportunity to see a model that works in the NW. You won’t be disappointed.
Register at http://www.jeffersonbaptistchurch.org/   - don’t send any money until you talk with me about the scholarships.

Do you have a need to learn more of what Excel 7 can do for you?  I will be going to a class in GP on January 28th.  It will be a basic beginners class with 3 other classes to follow.  Power Up also has many other classes. Most are in the Medford area. They have changed their structure so I'm not certain if you can still go free, I do know that there are scholarships available to cover the cost.  You would need to apply for them ahead.  Here is the E-mail for Stacie at Power Up to get better information.  stacieg@jobcouncil.org

I am working on the Annual, So please respond to this question:  (I have 6 out of 13 responding to this question. I'm especially interested in those who want the hard copy, it will be assumed that you don't want a hard copy if there is no response.)
Do you want me to send a hard copy to your church of the SBA Annual?  It will not have a binder.

This is what you will receive in any case.
1. Each church and pastor will receive a CD, you can print all or part of the annual yourself.  It will be filled with all the reports, minutes, directories from 2009-20010 and some of the history from last years annual.
2. The Pastor/Church directory will be coming separately.  2 hard copies and one CD.  This is so you can make changes as they come and print out only the effected church page.  If you want other peoples photos, other than the Sr. pastor and the church photo, please let me know right away. (For instance those with a secretary or other staff people) You will need to provide a photo, of those you want to be placed on your 8.5 X 11 page, to me in the next week or so.  Call me with what you want on your page.

Okay, with that done here is the announcements and plans for the coming couple of months!

SBA Executive Board Meeting
April 25, 2011  Dayspring Baptist  7PM

Missions/Ministry Fair  the date is April 30th, 10 - 2 at Grace Baptist Family Center
Free parking!  Bring your whole church!
This is in the planning stages.

Scott Wood, IMB and Bill Griffith of SBC Disaster Relief will be our speakers.
Do you have a ministry that could be a part of this event?  Let me know as soon as you can so we can further plan.
The idea is: To show the other churches what is going on in your church.  To help them see what is possible in our area of Southern Oregon.  To  encourage prayer for each other and interaction as we work  together to further the cause of Christ.  It has been well tested that the more you are informed the more you will pray and support.
Do you have a singing group that would be willing to do 15-20 minutes, possibly more as back ground entertainment?

Missionary Scott Wood will be at a  Dayspring on May 1st at the 11:00 service.   Phoenix has signed up for the evening 6:00 service.
Contact me if your church would like Scott Wood to make a presentation in your church. He can do other types of presentations as well.

We're looking at finding out if there is anything that we can help them with as far as their needs on the field.
Here is a list for us to pray about and decide what we would like to send on with Scott and Denise from our Association:  They would need what ever we get them well before they leave later this year.
Portable video projector.  Portable sound system.  Microphones &  misc. audio cables.  Computer.  Bibles in Polish.  Various needs for 2012 European Soccer Championship outreach: literature, water distribution, travel.  Sports equipment: various.  High quality video camera – HD & Flash Memory (ex: Canon HF S200).  2 six foot folding tables would be great.   As he thinks of other items he will let me know.

Has your church decided when your VBS will be this year?  Please let me know so that we can be praying for your workers and the children who will be attending.
