Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

The national goal for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is $70 million. We will continue this offering until we meet our goal of $1000.

Church Improvements

Now that we have the new steeple installed,it is now time to put our emphasis on the elevator. Our current elevator is not in operation. Even if fixed, it will not pass current codes and can not be grandfathered in. So we are left with the choice of replacing the original elevator in the back of the church and how it will be done. Currently bids are being taken to remove the old elevator, build a larger shaft and installing a new elevator. As news of the new elevator comes in, I'll post here. 

Wedding Bells

At this this I would like to announce the engagement of Austyn Nickalo and Lindsay Bradley. They will be having their wedding on May 25th, hopefully at Second Baptist Church. The reception will be immediately afterwards at the VFW on W Main Street.

Mission Project for Hunger Outreach Programs

Our weekly Mission Project for the Homeless/Hungry continues. A half dozen other churches and we at Second Baptist Church assist Flint Hill Baptist Church with food, clothing, housewares and so on. This is for us a 22 year Mission Project started by the late Betty Gladden. Flint Hill Baptist Church will be giving out the food and clothes to the aid of needy people.

Pastors Appreciation Day held today Sunday, October 29th, was a great success. Many met at Bob Evans for his appreciation dinner. All had fun and enjoyed the fellowship.

Members came together and brought their favorite side dish and or dessert and the church provided sub-sandwiches and tea. Everyone got their fill of food and drink. After the luncheon Pastor Mark and his wife "Mac" were presented with gift cards and cash donated by the church members. We wish them both success as leaders of our church and we all give them our "thanks" for being their for us. We love them both.

BBQ Lunch

On Sunday, October 16th, after the Worship Service, we were blessed (again) with a BBQ lunch from Tina and Ed Hyman (Lucile Ferrell's granddaughter and grandson-in-law). They provided the church with BBQ pulled pork, mac and cheese, slaw, rolls, baked beans and beverages. Members of the church pitched in and provided their favorite deserts. The meal was great and the socializing even better. It was a great success. Much thanks goes to Ed and Tina.
