Weekly News 2/2/11

Good Morning!

Wow! 5th Sunday Sing was incredible.  The Holy Spirit was indeed present.  The singing was as I imagine it will be when we are in Heaven, that glorious day.

A great big thank you

to the men from UTurn4Christ.  Jimmy and his guys are still recovering I'm sure.  They moved a very heavy desk, 2 parts, and a 4 drawer horizontal file cabinet.  Also took away 2 other very heavy desks.  College Heights used them as well so they got a very good work out as it was up a full flight of stairs and around corners, etc.

So the office is looking a bit ruffled.  It will get back to some order in the near future.

The last piece of info for the Annual is in.  Monday I will get in some order and out to you all on CD and some on hard copy as well.  I have Phoenix, Lampman, 6th St., and someone else.  I will look that up.  But if you wanted a hard copy also let me know as somehow I may have not gotten the word.

Please find in your in-box a note from Leigh Ann Stark, NWBC Vacation Bible School Promoter .  She has info regarding last years VBS and info regarding this years.

River Bend Community Baptist t Church has a local phone number for the church:  541-878-7379

The team info is on the web.

Siletz First Baptist/ Sacred Ground Outreach will be holding our annual Spring Break VBS on March 21st -March 25th. It runs 9:30 AM until noon daily, with a program on the 25th at 7 PM. We get about 60-70 community kids attending each Spring. We're headed to a "beach Blast."  Just checking to see if any of you know of any teens (over 16) or adults that might be able to come help us do recreation or teach classes. We're fine on staffing for crafts and snacks...but  have a lot of staffing holes to fill on the other positions.

Thanks for letting me know.

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 presentations to meet your needs.

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.

SBA Men's Retreat
May 12-14 - Looking at Lake Selmac

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.
