WHAT YOU BELIEVE DRIVES EVERYTHING - SERMON SERIES AND CLASSES BEGIN SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH AT 9:30AM
This Fall, we are embarking on a 30-week journey called "Believe". We want believers of all ages to be able to answer three driving questions: WHAT DO I BELIEVE? WHAT SHOUD I DO? WHOM AM I BECOMING? Join us as we learn together how to think, act and be like Jesus. KNOW WHAT YOU BELIEVE AND WHY IT MATTERS.

BABY DEDICATION
A Baby/Children’s Dedication will be held on Sept. 17th, during the morning worship service. Interested parents should contact Pastor Mark or church office.

YOUTH GROUP FALL SCHEDULE
September 10th - Community Service Project (trash pick-up)

FREE MEAL
First Baptist will be hosting the Free Meal at Grace United Methodist Church on Wed., September 20th. Thanks to everyone that provided groceries and came to help in August. This is an outreach mission that continues to grow. We always need additional volunteers to support this important ministry. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s help and financial support. If you would like to make a monetary donation, checks can be written to First Baptist Church with Free Meal written on the memo line.

MEN'S PRAYER GROUP
Men of Rochester, you are invited to join us for men’s prayer group! We will be meeting Monday, September 11th at the First Baptist Church at 7pm. Any man who has an interest in praising God and being
encouraged in their faith should attend! Contact Braden Chandler, 223-2367 if you have any questions.

SEPTEMBER MISSION FOCUS 2017 - "UNITED MINISTRIES"
The First Baptist Church Mission focus for September 2016 is Fulton County United Ministries. This valuable organization, established and incorporated in 1998 in Indiana, in cooperation with the downtown Rochester Circle of Merchants and many other area churches is unified in serving people in need with a food pantry as well as helping those who need payment for bills and/or rent. The homeless are also served here (625 Pontiac Street, Rochester). This single address is important so that the needy folks can just go to one spot instead of community-wide “church shopping”. As we are reminded throughout the Bible the righteous give generously and the Lord blesses those who give generously (Psalm 37, Matthew 7, Acts 14:17, 1 Timothy, and Philippians 4:19) among many other verses. If you are able to give this month, please make your check payable to First Baptist Church and mark “United Ministries” on the memo line. Again, many thanks for your continued support of our monthly mission and your continued prayers for those less fortunate than ourselves in their time of need. May God continue to bless and keep you.
