WELCOME GUESTS: We welcome our guests to the worship service     today. Please complete the guest card and place it in the offering plate during the service. Thank you for coming to worship with us today.


THANK YOU:   Our church collected $300.00 for Pure Water Pure Love this year. Thank you so much for this donation, as well as your donations for the North Carolina Missions Offering and the food ministry for the State Fair workers. These totals will be given at a later date.


VACATION: Julie will be out of the office on Thursday and Friday, October 18 and October 19 for vacation. The bulletin deadline for the October 21 bulletin will be Wednesday, October 17 at 10:00 A.M.



KENNEDY CHILDREN’S HOME RELIEF FUND: The director of the Kennedy Children’s Home near Kinston gave a report at the RBA Senior Rally and indicated that the damage was similar to or worse than damage caused by Matthew. Six cottages were flooded and large trees are down. The children have been moved to other Baptist Children’s Homes. Members of our church have worked on various repair projects at the home in the past and in recent times we have taken Christmas presents for the children. We propose that our church take an offering to help support the repair of the cottages. Contributions will be received TODAY.   Checks can be written to ADBC with Kennedy Home Relief on the memo line. Contributions can be placed in extra envelopes from your box of offering envelopes and marked as Kennedy Children’s Home Relief. Our treasurer will compile the contributions and send a check to the Baptist Children’s Home in Thomasville.

Please bring enough food for your family and enough to share. We hope to see you at Homecoming.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOXES: We can brighten the life of a child and hopefully introduce him or her to God’s love by our simple act of filling a shoebox with the “little things” that we often take for granted. We currently have 90 EMPTY shoeboxes – let’s try to FILL everyone of them! Please return your packed shoeboxes to the church by Sunday, November 11th. The cost of shipping is $9.00 per box. If you are unable to shop and pack a box, monetary donations can be given to Bobbie White or Helen Cox.
