First Connections – June 10, 2016

Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his exceeding greatness! Psalm 150:1-2



From Properties Committee

When you park on the north side of the church, please use the designated parking – which is either the diagonal parking on the sw side of 10th Street or the parking lot directly north of 10th. Do not parallel park in front of the church on either side of 10th Street. The committee is making this adjustment for the safety of small children.

Mission Shawnee

1) 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.

2) Our Women's Ministry is helping out over at Mission Shawnees on Tuesdays this summer. They would like to open this service opportunity up to the church. This will entail packing sandwiches from 9-11 am at Mission Shawnee. 



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.
