NOVEMBER 2019

November is here and it is a time to be thankful for our families and our friends.   Thank God for all his many blessings!

 

Thank you to the churches for the donations of pairs of gloves for the Women’s Correctional Centers in North Carolina.  This is wonderful ministry and a way to show God’s love to these women.

OCTOBER 2019

Fall is here! In a short period of time, we will see God’s beautiful colors all around! What a wonderful time of year!

 

Our WMU emphasis for this year is “Unshakable Pursuit” and we need to know God more, show his love unconditionally and make disciples who make disciples.

 

Our Picnic for the Hearing Impaired on September 17, 2019 was wonderful. Our theme was “Island Cruise”, with Captain Bob Stephenson! Donna Woody was our interpreter. Cindy Atkins had a great devotional. The food was delicious and we had great fun and fellowship. We thank Glenda Carden, Ann Perry, Cindy Atkins and Karen Rice for their hard work and the members of Riverside Baptist for all their help.
