Church bulletin announcements
Welcome to Guest
We invite guests to 'text' Welcome to 410-670-7334. You will receive a link where you may share basic contact information so we can keep in touch with you. Likewise, church members may text 'connect' to the same number to sign up to receive electronic messages regarding schedule changes and reminders for upcoming events. You may also fill out the tear off strip in the bulletin and drop it in the collection plate during the offering.
Youth Ministry Activities
Rent-A Kid: The Outer Limits Youth Ministry would like to announce that youth will be available to help perform basic lawn maintenance and household chores for church members. Any donations received will be used by the youth doing the work to defray the cost of attending events/retreats. Contact Chip (410-937-0659) or Danielle (443-356-3438) to arrange for a member of the youth to come and serve.
First Baptist's Sunday Bible Study classes can participate again this year in the children's Christmas Shoe Boxes, a project of Samaritan's Purse (Franklin Graham, President). The actual collecting of the boxes will be in November. Also, money is needed to ship the packages ($7.00 per box). Samaritan's Purse asks us to be praying for these children. Let's make a difference in a child's life. If you have any questions, please contact Dawn Dawson at 410-273-6701.
ReVerb is an all-night event designed with one purpose in mind, to share The Gospel with unsaved teens. The Youth are being encouraged to invite unsaved friends to attend this year's ReVerb on November 18th, in Hershey, PA. The cost is $47 per student. If you are interested in covering the cost for a young person to attend this event, please let any of the Youth Workers, or the office know. Registrations must be completed by October 24th.

Open Forum and Special Called Business Session
We will be having an Open Forum regarding a single Sunday morning worship service: At this past week's business meeting, the question of a single Sunday morning worship service was discussed. After a good amount of time of discussion, it was proposed that the church conduct an open-forum meeting on Sunday afternoon, November 6th, at 1:00 p.m. A meal will be provided immediately following the 11:00 a.m. worship service. The goal will be to develop a proposal regarding a single Sunday morning worship service and to hold a special-called business session to vote on that proposal at the end of the open forum discussion.
The Trustees will meet on Saturday October, 22nd at 8:00 a.m. All Trustees should plan to attend.
Women of all ages are invited to breakfast and a time of fellowship on Saturday, October 22nd at 9:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Please bring a light side dish to share if possible. See Carol Allen or Blanca Ratzlaff with any questions you might have.
