Weekly News 12/15/10

Good Morning Everyone!
It is a wonderful day in the Lord.  Lots to get accomplished so we'll get right with it.
Please note change on the Winter Youth Retreat.  I put the wrong date in last week.

Gordon Robinson Memorial:
The service will be this Friday, Dec 17, 9 AM  at Lozier Lane in Medford.
Flowers can be sent to Memory Gardens in Medford  or they can be sent to the house.  In lieu of flowers money may be sent to Lozier Lane church to benefit Southern Baptist Missions. 
Mail:  Rose Robinson - 1530 Arlington Dr, Medford  OR  97501

Team Request:
As new pastors come in and more folks within our congregations are desiring to get involved, I would like to request that each Associational Team Leader set dates for the upcoming year (each team should meet at least quarterly) and send Nancy a brief description of your teams area of interest and upcoming plans so that all our church faculty and members can have time to pray and then jump on board to help us in the roles we have given and they feel led to assist in. In order for us to work with the local churches schedules we MUST get together and gather our info and resources and then get the information or activities, dates, times and flyers to them way in advance (preferably correct ones, my bad) so that we can enable as many as possible to attend. Thanks, your bossy Fellowship Team Leader, Sherry
The Fellowship Team promotes activities within the association to foster fellowship between the churches and pastors. Activities that we have or are currently working on include the Pastors and Wives annual retreat; Women's Retreat; Men's retreat; 5th Sunday Singing and the annual picnic; the Pastors and wives Christmas dinner and housing our Gold Beach Pastors when they come in for annual meetings. Our meeting place at this time will be at our home in Rogue River at 9 a.m. If the location changes we will notify all of those who have expressed interest in helping. Our upcoming dates for mtgs in 2011 are Feb 28; April 25; Sept 12; Nov 7. My e-mail address is lennynsherry@msn.com if you'd like to contact me about anything. Thanks, Sherry Brewer

Nancy will get a summary of the Teams job descriptions out  with the meeting dates and place of meeting as soon as she gets this information.

Special Called E-Board Meeting:
This meeting will be on January 6th, at Foothills at 7:00PM.  We will be  presenting to Siskiyou Baptist Association a camp opportunity.

Prayer Needs:  Let me know if your church has a prayer concern that can be posted here.
For Rose Robinson - For strength and comfort:

Pray for an 18 yr. old who is coming down off heroin and missing home badly. Pray he stays and completes U-Turn, and that he receives “sight.” He struggles with faith, but he knows God is there.
Pray for a young man in New Mexico. He agreed to come to U-Turn, but so many things can happen between now and then. Pray for the "hounds of heaven" to chase him right to our door step. He should arrive Monday. He has MS, pray for that, and a Baptism!

For River Bend Community Baptist Church:
PTL Ron and Jeanette Allen have possession of the house and the church is meeting there.  They plan to come up to Oregon after New Years, (last I heard). Pray for their moving experience and settling in process.  The buyer they had for their home in Texas fell through, pray for a new buyer with a quick escrow!

For Grace:
Lenny and Sherry and the church there in Rogue River.  The matter I believe has been settled with new rules at the lower level schools.  The High School I understand has become a closed campus and will remain so.

Does your church need:
Steel folding chairs?  First, Phoenix has steel folding chairs that they would like to make available to a sister church.  Contact Bruce Pearson @ 541-821-2732 for information and arrangements.

Office schedule
The office will continue to have regular hours with the exception of being closed on the following dates:

Thank you for your understanding.  Feel free to call me anytime at my cell #  541-659-7261  or home 541-955-5319 with any questions or concerns.  I have the SBA E-mail on my personal lap top so if you need to that is available as well.
