Dear Baptist Home Church Family,

Welcome to August 2023. I know someone is thinking … “just 4 months till Christ- mas, Ive got to start shopping!Well that may be true, but we have so much more to do and experience in the now. We had an amazing Vacation Bible School …. So much work and so many prayers went in to the planning and preparation. If you were here on Sunday (July 22), you saw what our kids and leaders experienced. This was not our typical VBS … if there is such at Baptist Home. A Huge Thank You to our VBS Director Michelle Parsons and to all the teachers, leaders, kitchen staff and to everyone who served in this minis- try!!!! By the way, if you loaned things to be used in VBS, they are now available (in the FLC foyer) to be returned to you

Our new church year will be starting soon. There are so many ways to be involved in ministry at Baptist Home. We need people in all areas of our church to lead, to teach, to give and to serve. Please pray for God to lead you to a place of service. We still need food and volunteers for our food giveaway ministry on Fridays. Dont miss out on your oppor- tunity to serve people in need in our community. Our annual ministries of Operation Christmas Child Shoebox”, North Carolina Missions Offering, Angel Tree, and others all will need your help and your prayers.

My, how the Lord blessed our worship service last Sunday through the music and testimony of Heart2HeartSo many lives were touched and encouraged through their messages in music. Thank You for supporting the ministry of music through weekly worship, through the many individual and group presentations as well as through special events.

Continue to pray for and support each other as we seek to fulfill the word of God by being the pillar and foundation of truth. Let me also encourage you to be in prayer for someone you know who needs Jesus as their Savior. Pray for them, love them, witness to them, and invite them to come to church with you. It just may be that God will use your in- vitation to change their life forever!

Looking forward to the blessing of doing ministry with you throughout these Awe- some days of August ….our days of ministry are upon us, and dont forget,

Jesus is coming Soon!
Pastor David Jones
