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.


WE WELCOME DR. DOUGLAS E. MURRAY BACK TO OUR PULPIT this morning in Tim’s absence. Doug grew up in our church, and is Louise’s son and Debra’s brother. He pastored churches in MD and in NC until his retirement in May, 2017. Welcome back home, Doug, and thank you for sharing God’s message with us today!


PLEASE COME BACK TONIGHT AT 6:30PM TO HEAR DOUG MURRAY speak to us about The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. He is the Moderator, and has lots of good information and materials to share with us. Part of our church’s giving goes to support CBF, so come hear how we are doing God’s work together.


PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE TIME CHANGE NEXT SUNDAY MORNING! Our worship service will begin at 10:00AM and Sunday School will be at 11:00AM. Following Sunday School, there will be a covered dish lunch in the fellowship building. Please bring enough food for your family and enough to share.


BARBARA POWELL’S BIRTHDAY: Mom’s birthday is approaching on November 16. She loves cards and looks at them almost daily. If you can drop her a card, it will make her day special. Thank you, Sharon McLaurin (daughter) (See insert for address)


WMU NEWS: Our church collected $710.00 for the North Carolina Missions Offering in September. We also collected 64 cans of food for the RBA ministry at the State Fair. The total for the Global Hunger offering in October

will be reported at a later date.

Due to sudden illness of our scheduled speaker from Baptist Children Homes, Helen Cox presented our program for Missions Night on November 7. The focus for this year’s BCH offering is “Come to Me…I will give you rest” from Matthew 11:28. At BCH, cottage parents are waiting and say “come” to children who have been neglected and often abused. They become a family to them, and they introduce children to Jesus Christ, who says “come to me….I will give you rest. Please prayerfully consider your gift to this ministry. Our church will be collecting the offering for BCH through the month of November.

Thank you for your donations to all the special offerings and ministries of our church.                                                               –Bobbie White
