The Summer Mission Trip is set for the week of July 23-29! We will be working with the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) in Richwood, WV, to help with recovery from the flooding there last fall. We will be housed in a former parsonage that has been renovated for this purpose. The cost of $100 per person covers housing, materials, and meals for the week. (Meals on travel days will be at your own expense.) NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY – there is a category for “Willing Helper!” If you are interested in joining the team, or need more information, contact Kim Albert, firstname.lastname@example.org or 434-579-5011, or Russell.
Every Sunday – Youth group will meet for Sunday Night Dinner & fellowship at 6pm.
Sunday, May 21— Seniors will be honored with a breakfast at First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall at 10 am. After service, they will go to Go APE in Raleigh, NC for a “Celebrate the Seniors Day”.
Nickelsville Mission Trip – June 12-16
Passport Camp—June 18-23 at Averett University
The session, on recommendation of Christian Education committee, approved purchase of new playground equipment for a north property playground near the new picnic shelter. The cost will be about $7500. This may be the lasting legacy you want to give to the church, so if you would like to contribute towards that project, mark your gifts appropriately or ask a session member about it.
If we need to cancel or adjust worship or ministry events due to weather,
we will send a church email and post news in this section of our page about
whether we will proceed or adjust due to or because of weather.
May God bless us all and keep us safe
as we continue to be the church in all kinds of weather!

This is the last month to collect.
This project is a great way to get rid of broken and any unused crayons laying around, and keep them out of the landfill. We have collected quite a few boxes and the bin is fairly full, but we would love to have several containers to give to Matthew Bain in his efforts to help children in hospitals have a little joy.

Each Thursday, our men meet at Roma restaurant at 5:50 pm for a meal together, and then at the church at 7 pm for study and prayer. All men are invited to join us for one or both times.
The men have also begun a study called “The 50 Commands of Christ”.
