For Our Guests
Thank you for honoring us with your presence today. Our guiding verse is “For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.” (II Corinthians 4:5). With that in mind, we’d like to ask all first time guests to fill out the “We’re Glad You’re Here!” card in your guest pack so we can know how best to be your servant. We ask that you place the card in the offering plate as it is passed. If you prefer you may fill out an online guest card at chinagrovefbc.com/guests

Extended Session
If you cannot serve, please call your substitute so your time will be covered

Tanzania Bibles – During the month of September, we will be collecting money to purchase more Bibles for Tanzania.  Over 2,000 people have come into a saving relationship with Christ since our partnership began.  A sister church in our association has partnered with us for this particular purchase and already donated $1,000.  Gifts of $2,574.85 have been given so far.  We’re excited to watch how God continues to expand His Kingdom through this ministry.  Please mark your envelope and/or check with “Tanzania”.

We will continue meeting outside through October at 10am.

HOMECOMING OCTOBER 11th –  Our Men on Mission will cook our lunch following the Homecoming service. To ensure the safety of everyone, the men will put the food in carry out containers and hand out bottles of water.  As you take the meal, you are welcome to stay and have a picnic on the grounds or you can take it home with you.

Committee Leaders – As we begin a new calendar year, please try to keep Teresa informed of any upcoming meetings and events so that she can put it on the church calendar and have it reflected in the bulletins.  This will help keep the church family informed and help prevent scheduling conflicts with other committees.

Heck-Jones offering (WMU) & NC State offering Thank you church family for your faithfulness each time a goal is set before us.  As we give towards our goal of $500 this year to the Heck-Jones and our State offering, please be in prayer for the month of September as we stretch towards our goal together.  Offering received $100. ~ Blessings to all, Your Mission Team;   (Jeannie Patterson, Chad & Amanda Lewis and Hannah Gagnier)
