  • is theologically moderate.
  • recognizes that women, as well as men, may serve in leadership positions and may be ordained.
  • exhibits loving respect for the diverse opinions of individual members.
  • embraces the belief that the individual is free to interpret the Bible for himself or herself, using the best study tools available to the individual.
  • is autonomous, though affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

They are going to try and make as many as possible through out the week. If anyone has fabric they can donate, we would greatly appreciate this donation. You can leave the donations in the church office or give them to Charlotte Lunsford or Katie Faison. We will collect donations from now until July 9.

Church-Wide Mission Project

The Mission’s Committee is still in the planning stages but want to let you know we have a big mission project planned that is going to be taking place at the Georgia Baptist Children's Home in Palmetto, Georgia. We are “adopting” the Matthew’s Time cottage. They provide a weekend “camp” once a month for children with severe and profound disabilities which is a memorable time of fun for the kids, while giving their parents an often, much needed chance for rest. For many of their parents, this is the only time they can leave their child with someone besides themselves.

Now this is where we come in. We will need:

  • Painters for walls and doors
  • “Artists” to paint pictures
  • Carpenters to build shelves and countertops
  • Seamstress to make valances and curtains
  • Decorators to add special touches to the 8 bedrooms
  • Landscapers to spruce up landscape & playground area
  • Cooks to prepare meals for the children and staff
  • Monetary donations

On the bulletin board outside of Katie Faison’s office will be more information. There you will be able to sign up for
which area you would like to help. Also there will be included a “WISH LIST” of items that you can purchase. Many people have requested doing some mission work close to home. Now, here is your chance. We will need many, many “Helping Hands” to complete this wonderful opportunity.
