Christmas in July
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, but we are asking you to keep an eye out for sales on school supplies as we get closer to the first day of school. 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.
Men of all ages are invited to breakfast and a devotional study on Saturday September 10th at 8:00 a.m. in the fellowship hall. For details please call Don Ratzlaff, at 410-939-4929.
The Deacons will meet on Tuesday September 9th at 7:00 p.m. All Deacons should plan to attend.

Billy Cook would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the singles BBQ and school supplies drive. The donations of school supplies were delivered to Havre De Grace Elementary and they were very grateful for all of it.
Special-Called Business Meeting
"On Sunday August 28th, at the end of both Sunday morning services, there will be a special-called business meeting to vote in the slate of workers for the 2016-2017 church year. These are the people that believe that God has called them to step up and serve in particular areas of ministry. Please grab a business meeting packet and look over the list of proposed laborers for the kingdom. If you cannot find a copy, please let us know in the church office so we can get more copies made. Be praying for these candidates. Then be ready to cast your vote for the roster of leaders, teachers and workers being presented. Thank you for taking this to heart. May God be glorified, as He deserves."
