Special-called Business Meeting:
The Deacons are calling for a special business meeting in order to address a vote for a target audience for outreach for our church. The vote is scheduled to follow the morning worship service on Sunday, September 10, 2017.

The motivation behind the vote comes from the process of the "Turning Around Journey," a church revitalization effort First Baptist stepped into a couple of years ago. The church, aware that church attendance was declining, voted to "turn things around." Statistics show the decline, despite the church's efforts through various ministry projects. A church health assessment revealed a major concern was not knowing to whom we should be reaching. We had no target audience for outreach. Data will be presented, suggesting who that target audience might be and where to find them locally. The vote will be to agree upon that target audience. Information will become available to the congregation regarding the motion a week before the vote. Be seeking God's face as we approach the vote. Thank you!

This is the song that is being sung during the invitation:

I'm Goin'a Sing When the Spirit Says Sing

  1. I'm goin'a sing* when the Spirit says sing.
    I'm goin'a sing when the Spirit says sing.
    I'm goin'a sing when the Spirit says sing.
    and obey the Spirit of the Lord.
  2. I'm goin'a pray* when the Spirit says pray.
    I'm goin'a pray when the Spirit says pray.
    I'm goin'a pray when the Spirit says pray.
    and obey the Spirit of the Lord.
  3. I'm goin'a moan * when the Spirit says moan.
    I'm goin'a moan when the Spirit says moan.
    I'm goin'a moan when the Spirit says moan.
    and obey the Spirit of the Lord.
  4. I'm goin'a shout * when the Spirit says shout.
    I'm goin'a shout when the Spirit says shout.
    I'm goin'a shout when the Spirit says shout.
    and obey the Spirit of the Lord.
