Rhonda Recommends: Advent books by Arnold Ytreeide

During Advent, our family reads a historical fictional adventure story that weaves in the birth of Christ. We’ve enjoyed Jotham’s Journey and Tabitha’s Travels. This year, we’ll read a chapter a day of Bartholomew’s Passage. I recommend them for elementary and older.

November Mission Focus-World Mission Offering

The “World Mission Offering” is the mission focus for First Baptist Church during November. Missionaries work daily throughout the world to teach people about Christianity and bring them to Jesus. The single largest source of financial support for these International Missionaries and Ministers is the “World Mission Offering.” Your financial support will go 100% to making more disciples of Jesus Christ around the world. The work of these individuals is supported for short and long term missionaries as well as volunteers, special assistants and over 150 partner mission workers.

The goal for our church this month is $2500. As found in Proverbs 28: “He who gives to the poor will lack for nothing.” Please make your check payable to First Baptist Church and mark the memo with “WMO”. Thank you for sharing your own treasures with those in need of knowing Christ and for your continued prayers.
