The Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner is approaching!  We are in need of volunteers to help with the promotion of this event.  We truly blanket the town with flyers and need folks who can help to hand them out.  If you are instrested in helping, please contact Tammy VanGils at 798-6040.

Sara (Hutchins) VanKirk and her family will be in Virginia for a couple of weeks this Fall!  Betty Hutchins, Fran Sadler and Sharon Sadler are hosting an open house on Sunday afternoon, September 28 from 2:00 – 5:00 PM in Ellis Hall.  We know you want to see her again and meet her beautiful family, which has grown since she moved to California.  Since their time in the Richmond area is very limited for individual visits, we hope you can come!  All are welcome!

From the Personnel Committee:   The Personnel Committee is recommending that First Baptist Church call the Reverend Bill Ellis, a current member of our congregation, as a "“Part Time” Interim Associate Pastor.   Bill will serve on a month to month basis and will lead our Wednesday Evening bible studies, and assist Pastor Carlton in the visitation of our Sick and Shut-ins.   There will be a Special Call Business meeting on Sunday September 14th at the conclusion of the 8:30 and 11:00 services to vote on this measure.        Mick Outten, Chair.  

Operation Christmas Child - OK FBC members, it's that time of the year again.  Start collecting items for the shoeboxes!  We are in need of everything.  Look for Debbie's shoebox table.
