Pizza & Planning for Youth Families
Youth families are invited to a pizza lunch September 12 at City Park after Sunday School. Bring a drink and side dish or dessert to share and your family’s calendar so we can make plans.
We will have our annual church picnic on Sunday, September 19th at 5 pm at the City Park. Join us for food, fun, and fellowship. Meat will be provided. Please bring a dish to share, chairs, table service, and games.
Community Free Meal
The Community Free Meal at Grace will begin again in September. First Baptist hosts the 3rd Wednesday of each month and encourage everyone to participate in any way you can. There is a monthly sign-up sheet on the window for various hosts to pick the month that they would like to be hosts. Cindy Border and Denise Chandler are the leaders at our church for this community outreach. Please contact them with any questions you might have. Cindy Border @ 574-835-1364 or Denise Chandler @ 574- 223-2367
September Mission Focus-United Ministries
The First Baptist Church Mission focus for September 2021 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 can just go to one place for assistance. 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.
