Weekly News 5/18/11

Good Morning!
I hope you are all doing well.
The question of the day is:  Are you and your church praying for the pastors of the SBA and their ministries?  I know some of you are personally and that is encouraging.

At the E-Board meeting the phone situation here at the SBA office was discussed.  We pay Qwest over $75 a month and except for maybe 4 calls a month from some of you, the rest of the calls are companies looking for folks, Credit Card people and etc.  So, the decision was to see if we could get a line with Verizon.  That was accomplished.  I believe that everything is set up.  The phone # is the same as before, yea!  I can forward it to my cell if there is a need that I am aware of.  The monthly basic bill will be 19.99 a month plus the taxes.  There will be the set up fee and the price of the unit on the first bill.  I also put this number on the Do Not Call list.

I heard the Men's Retreat went well.  Thank you Fellowship Team for your efforts on behalf of the men of the SBA.

Ken and I went to the Muslim study on Saturday, then had him at Dayspring at both services on Sunday.  His presentation was very revealing and helped solidify the contradictory comments I hear from time to time.  If you would be interested in him coming to your church or home group or ???  he would be interested in coming.  Contact Stan Smith at Dayspring  541-476-4547 for his number.  (I don't seem to have it with me.)

l would like to get some motion going on the new Church/Pastor directory.  If you have not connected with me in regards to your page please do so soon.  Thank you very much.  This needs to be accomplished by the end of the Summer.

If you have an event for the Weekly News please let me know.  I try my best not to forget to get your event in so if it is not there give me a shout!
