POWR Group Meeting
The weight loss support group POWR continues to meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. They are now meeting at the church. Please spread the word of this location change. They will still offer private weekly weigh-ins and cover topics related to healthy choices in living daily life. This rewarding resource is open to the public and FREE!!
We will go on our second monthly visitations TODAY at 5pm to make contact with recent visitors, prospects and members who are not able to make it to services. Anyone who can help support this effort, please fill out a commitment card and give it to Pastor Chris. Also, if you know of anyone who could use a visit from our church, please give the name and address to Pastor.
BCHFS Fall Festival
The Baptist Children’s Home in Carmi will have their 11th Annual Fall Festival on Saturday, September 18th from 10am-3pm. There will again be booths sponsored by churches from across the state with games, prizes and carnival type fun. There is also a quilt auction and a silent auction that day that serve as a fundraiser for the home but the festival is free!! Our church will not be having a booth this year, but plan to contribute a gift basket (or two) to be auctioned. In addition, if you have new items to offer for auction or a new quilt to be donated, please let us know and we will take it when we take the basket(s). We will announce soon what type of basket(s) we will be gathering for. If you have suggestions, give them to Nancy Hill or Abby Huff. There is also a small group planning to attend the festival for a few hours of the day. If you would like to go, ask Nancy or Abby for details.
