November 2020

With only two months left in 2020, we are still dealing with COVID 19.  We need God’s guidance more than ever!

 

At this time, here is what we have scheduled:

We will not be holding The World Day of Prayer, Monday, November 2, 2020.  A donation will be made to the WDOP/ Baptist Women’s Alliance.

 

2020 Appalachian Christmas Outreach.  Their goal is 18,000 backpacks.  Collection date is Saturday, November 7, 2020 from 9 am to noon.  First Baptist Burlington is the collection site for our area.

 

The Week of Prayer for International Missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is November 29 - December 6, 2020.  We need to pray for the International Mission Board as they struggle financially.  We also need to encourage our churches to increase their giving to the Lottie Moon Offering.  Pray for these missionaries as they spread God’s message.

                        

Please pray for our churches and for one another.

 

In Christ,

Pat Parks, Associational WMU Director

Our council has not met, due to COVID 19, since January.  We hope this ends soon!

At this time, here is what we have going on:

 

We will not be holding The World Day of Prayer, Monday, November 2, 2020.  I will contact council
members and we will decide on a donation to the WDOP/ Baptist Women’s Alliance.

 

We have already made a couple of donations, since we could not hold events.

 

Red Box Ministry - Each church is asked to provide 35 bars of bath soap.  They are very specific. They must be wrapped, no price sticker and the weight must be between 4 and 5 ounces (no more – no less).  The collection date is Friday, October 23, 2020.

 

2020 Appalachian Christmas Outreach is still on.  Their goal is 18,000 backpacks.  Collection date is Saturday, November 7, 2020 from 9 am to noon.  First Baptist Burlington is the collection site for our area.

 

Please pray that we continue to do God’s work.

 

In Christ,
