THE FLOWERS ARE GIVEN TO THE GLORY OF GOD by Bill and Dawn Bielby in memory of Dawn’s mother, Lynda Britt.




GRATEFUL FOR OUR PRAYERS:  The Duke family in Puerto Rico evacuated and are safe in the state.  They plan to return to help clean up but leave the children with their parents.    -Imogene 




THANK YOU:  Thank you for your generous donations of food for the state fair workers.  We collected 93 cans of food, which will be used by the Raleigh Baptist Association in their on-site kitchen to prepare hot meals for the carnival workers.   




HOMECOMING:  Homecoming will be NEXT SUNDAY at 11:00 A.M.  Reverend Bob Coats will be our guest speaker.  Reverend Coats is the pastor of Carolina Pines Baptist Church and is a charter member of Athens Drive Baptist Church.   Following the service, everyone is invited to a covered dish meal in our fellowship building.  We ask that you please bring enough food to feed your family plus extra for our guests.  Everyone is encouraged to come and worship with us that day, and stay for a time of fellowship and a chance to catch up with old friends.  See you at Homecoming!




FALL FESTIVAL:  Our annual Fall Festival will be Wednesday, October 25th from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M.  Please come out and support this church-wide event.  We will have games, trunk-or-treating, and food served by our hospitality committee.  Invite your family, friends, or neighbors!  As in the past, we will need help.  If you can help with trunk-or-treating, cakes for the  cake walk, or donations of individually wrapped  candy, the children's council would greatly appreciate it. 




OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOXES:   If you have not had an opportunity to pick up your shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, please do so today.  The shoeboxes should be returned by November 12.  Cost for shipping this year is $9 per box.  Monetary donations are accepted, please mark your envelope:  Operation Christmas Child.  If you have any questions, please see Pam Skillman.
