OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

There are two more chances to drop off your OCC boxes:  today, 4:00-7:00 pm and tomorrow, 8:00-11:00 am. 

 

PARENT-CHILD DEDICATION

Our next Parent-Child Dedication is scheduled during the service on Sunday morning, December 6th.  Parent-Child dedications are a time when parents commit themselves to raise their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

 

If you are interested in participating in this, please contact the church office (616.772.4377) or office@fbczeeland.org) and we will send a registration form to you with further information.

BLESSING TREE

The Blessing Tree is up and located in the Narthex and is decorated with “ornaments.”  If you would like to participate in being a blessing to someone in our congregation or community …

  • Take as many ornaments as you wish

  • Purchase the gift listed on each ornament

  • Wrap the gift(s) – make sure you put each ornament on the gift as its tag

  • Bring the gift(s) back to the church and place under the tree by DECEMBER 20th

If you have any questions, contact Pastor Tom (616.772.4377 or pastortom@fbczeeland.org)

 

BIBLE STUDY AND PRAYER GATHERING

Our Weekly Bible Study and Prayer Gathering meets each Wednesday in the church parlor at 6:30 pm.  We will continue our study of Genesis this week.

 

CONGREGATIONAL VOTE

The Elders recommend that the church sell the Quincy Street property to Zeeland Public Schools for a full purchase payment option in the amount of $1,000,000. The vote on this recommendation is scheduled on after the morning worship TODAY. 

 

MISSIONARY CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS OFFERING

We are taking a special offering to bless the children of our missionaries.  This is one way we try to encourage these families who so faithfully represent our church in the task of world evangelism.  There are currently a total of 24 children in the missionary families that we support.  We would like to provide each child with a gift of at least $25.

If you would like to participate in this offering, please place your gift in a special offering envelope and write “Missionary Children” on the front.

 

MISSIONARY CHRISTMAS CARDS

Would you like to send Christmas cards to our Missionaries?  Just put them in the mailbox in the narthex.  They will be packaged together with the cards from the rest of the church family, and sent out at the end of November.

 

MISSION CONFERENCE AND FAITH PROMISE

First Baptist Church usually has our annual Mission Conference and Faith Promise Commitment in October.  Due to disruptions related to COVID 19, our conference plans have changed.  The Mission Conference has been rescheduled for January 24 through 27, 2021.

 

The date for the new Faith Promise Commitment has been rescheduled for January 31, 2021.  If you give regularly toward the Faith Promise Fund, we encourage you to continue your current level of giving until you can make a new commitment in January.
