Child Safety Team
There are to be no unattended children in classrooms, nursery, hallways, or Fellowship Hall at any time. Things in these rooms are going missing or left out and not put away. Most of the Bible study teachers spend their own money for their classrooms supplies. Also, it is a safety issue to leave children alone. Please be aware and do not leave your children unattended.

Weekly Fellowship Meals
As you surely have noticed, we are enjoying a larger group of worshipers together on Sunday mornings with our single Sunday worship service. What a blessing and encouragement! If you want to see how large a group of children and youth we are ministering to, join us in the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday evenings between 5:00-6:00 p.m. We have lots of kids under our spiritual cane each week. The meals are great and only cost $4.00 per person. If you have 4 or more in your family, all you pay is, $14.00 total. Come and see what God is doing at First Baptist on Wednesday evenings. See you there?

Youth Mission Trip
The Youth Mission Team has enlisted to return to Pittsburgh this year to continue our partnership with Praying Pelican Missions.  We will be building a storage shed for a local church, feeding lunch to children in need, and clearing an overgrown cemetery. Our projected budget for this year's efforts will be $8000. We have been blessed the past two years by the generosity of this body in supporting our efforts to be the hands and feet of Christ.  These trips have been highly beneficial in getting our youth out of their comfort zone and to grow more dependent and closer to God.  We are looking forward to once again serving our Lord in this way and invite everyone to partner with us in any way they are able, financially, prayerfully, and/or physically. So far we have raised $1,700.00 towards our goal.

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.

No Sale Yard Sale
The Youth Mission Team is once again collecting donations for this year's No Sale Yard Sale to be held April 22, 2017, to coincide with the City's Annual Community Wide Yard Sale.  If you have items you would care to donate to help the Youth go on their Pittsburgh Mission Trip, please let Chip DeBaugh, Danielle Bauer, or Sandi Link know.  We will arrange to collect the items or to have the church open so they can be dropped off.  We continue to be amazed at the tremendous support we have received from this body and are excited for what The Lord has in store for us in 2017 as we strive to be the hands and feet of Christ. If you would be available to help set up for, clean up after, or help the youth leaders and youth "sell" the yard sale goods, please let the youth leaders know ASAP.
