Operation Inasmuch United/Life
On Saturday, October 7th, First Baptist Church and WBC are partnering in compassionate service to our community. This is a time of reaching beyond the church walls to love and serve our neighbors. Please put this date aside to volunteer on one of the many OIU projects to be offered in the coming months. Out of town on October 7th? No worries; there will be other opportunities to plug you in! Not physically able? Again, no worries; you can contribute by joining the prayer support team. Do you know of any specific needs in our community? We are not only interested in one-day projects, but also in ways we can share God's love throughout the year. Building the 2017 project list is underway and we look forward to having your input!
The Summer Choir will present its annual concert Sunday at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. You will hear TV themes, pop, patriotic, Disney and sacred music. It's free and dress is casual, so come join us for a fun night of music for the whole family.
Women's Book Club
The next meeting of the Women's Book Club is August 29th at Mary Raines' home. The book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and the discussion will be led by Laurie Schauss. All ladies are welcome.
Adopt a Freshman College Student
We have three college freshmen who still need an individual/family/Sunday School class to adopt them for their first year away from home. Sending letters, packages, and praying for them while they are away from home will help them remain connected to our church family. Please consider if you are able to help in this ministry to our young adults for the 2017-2018 school year! Contact Rebekah Keathley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703.895.8211.

Opportunity to Serve!
Coffee, hot tea, and goodies are provided each Sunday morning in the Fellowship Hall for our members and guests to enjoy fellowship. This can be done by individuals or a Sunday School Class. We have some vacancies in our schedule that need to be filled. A provider is needed for July 30 and also for 5th Sundays. If you or your class are interested in helping with this ministry, contact Rebecca Jones [540.347.3509 or email@example.com].
