First Connections – May 27, 2016
Praise him, sun and moon, praise him all you shining stars! Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let them praise the name of the Lord! For he commanded and they were created. And he established them for ever and ever; he fixed their bounds which cannot be passed. Psalm 148:3-6

To raise funds for their summer mission trip. Exercise equipment, some cabinets, lots of miscellaneous. In the pavilion area south of the church.
For added safety under the playground equipment, we have purchased a delivery of wood chips. Boy Scouts have already started moving them to where they need to be.

First Baptist Church will be helping Mission Shawnee for the week of June 20-June 24 (11:00 am – 1:00 pm) to serve lunch to the community. So – we need volunteers to help prepare and serve the food those days. If you are able to help please sign up on the sheet on the Church Office window.
The Southern Baptist Convention has provided us with some prayer cards for the SBC Chaplains. Each card has a photo and basic information for a different Chaplain. These will be available at the Welcome Center until they are all gone.
