Hanging of the Greens

The kids did an AMAZING job on Wednesday night for our Hanging of the Greens service.  A special thank-you to all of those leaders who take time each week to work with our little ones.

Operation Christmas Child Information

We are planning a Family Ministry Event on Sunday, November 11th.

You and your child/children are invited to participate in Operation Christmas Child through First Baptist Children’s Ministry. This is an opportunity for you to share with your child/children the importance of missions through sharing with children around the world.

We see this as a two-step partnership ministry:

Step One: Your family signs up to purchase gifts to be included in Operation Christmas Child boxes. Please include your child in shopping - talking with him/her about this mission endeavor. We will provide the boxes.  You will need to include $7 per box for shipping costs or you may go to the OCC website at to make the donation and print out special EZ-Give boy/girl labels for your shoe box gifts. This will allow boxes to be tracked so you can find out the destination of your shoe box gifts. You may like to bring a picture of your child or family to include as well.

Step Two:  On Sunday, November 11th, we will meet in the Family Life Center during Sunday School (10:00 – 10:45).  We will watch a short video presentation and then prepare boxes for Operation Christmas Child. There will be stations for you to construct your boxes, write a letter to the child that will receive your box, and tables of items to fill your box. We will then take the boxes into the 11:00 Worship Service for dedication. This will be at the beginning of the service and you may leave following the dedication prayer (if you attended the 8:45 service).

Please mark next Sunday on your calendar and plan to be with us. This event is our way of supporting you in encouraging your child’s heart for missions. If you need more information, please contact Kate Graham, Casey Wallace or me.

I look forward to being on mission with your family,

Reverse Trick or Treating Photos!

Reverse trick or treating was a blast!  It was so much fun to pass out bags to unsuspecting residents at community senior citizen homes.  Thanks for coming out!!
