divider OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD – BOXES HAVE BEEN DELIVERED!! COMING SOON
With back to school supplies at a really good price, this is a GREAT time to pick up a few items for the shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Pens, pencils, crayons, note books, markers, glue sticks, the list goes on and on. There are several of us that pick up sale items all year long. If you see a great deal on something and there are several of them please do not hesitate to let us know. A few ideas of other items we always need are new wash clothes and bar soap for the shoe boxes. If you travel and you have an extra bar of soap in your room, that would be perfect to go into the shoe boxes. We take so many small simple everyday items we use for granted. For one of God’s children getting this simple shoe box it is a luxury to them. It is a way to show this child God’s love and they do matter to God.
 
As a reminder the following are a few items that are NOT ALLOWED in the shoeboxes. No lotions, liquids, toothpaste, candy or anything war related.
 
As always if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask Michelle Osterhuber or email her at msosgo3166@gmail.com. Thank you!
 
Check it out: I hope you will take a few minutes out of your day to read and watch the testimonials of children that receive a simple shoebox. That shoebox conveys God’s love. They learn about Jesus and so many then receive Jesus into their lives and tell all their families and friends about Jesus. https://sampur.se/2suPar5divider

“This Time Tomorrow” Study Notes

2 TIMOTHY
 
Date: Week of September 16th 2018
Time: Week 2
Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:1-7
 
Background Paul is in chains, abandoned by friends and family. Treated as a criminal, an “enemy of the state,” he is barely surviving in deplorable conditions. This man who was a leader of this new movement is considered nothing more than trash. In his late sixties, he writes to Timothy, probably in his late 30’s, the next generation of leadership to pass along last words of wisdom.
 
Purpose Paul begins this second letter to Timothy with encouragement. He reminds Timothy of his background in his faith, and Paul’s gratefulness to Timothy for being a part of his life and ministry “team.”
 
Introduction Questions
  • Who has been the best “encourager” in your life?
  • What have they said or done to help you?
  • Who are you currently encouraging?
  • How are you communicating your encouragement to that person?
 
Observation Read through 2 Timothy 1:1-7.
  • What is an apostle?
  • What kind of relationship does Paul have with Timothy based upon these first verses?
  • Who were the influential people in Timothy’s developing faith?
  • This is speculation, but who is lacking in Timothy’s faith journey?
  • What words stand out for you in these opening verses?
  • Why do you think they are important?
 
Interpretation
  • What is Paul’s big idea he wants Timothy to understand and apply?
  • What other points does Paul want to get across to Timothy?
  • Why do you think Paul can say he has a clear conscious?
  • Do we have a clear conscious in matters relating to our relationships?
  • Do we have a clear conscious as it relates to training disciples?
  • What is Paul’s reminder to Timothy regarding Timothy’ gift?
  • How does Paul encourage Timothy regarding the use of his gift?
 
Application (choose several to discuss and do)
  • What does this letter teach me about how I view God?
  • What action will I take after reading this letter?
  • Have I discovered the gift God has given to me?
  • What do I need to do to put my gift into action? Will I do anything?
  • Who would God have me pass along what I am learning?
  • What relationship would God have me develop into an ongoing mentoring relationship?
  • Will I do anything about what I have read or said this week?
 
Preparation for next meeting
Read Through 2 Timothy 1:8-18

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD: With back to school supplies at a really good price, this is a GREAT time to pick up a few items for the shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.  Pens, pencils,  crayons, note books, markers, glue sticks, the list goes on and on. There are several of us that pick up sale items all year long.  If you see a great deal on something and there are several of them please do not hesitate to let us know.   A few ideas of other items we always need are new wash clothes and bar soap for the shoe boxes. If you travel and you have an extra bar of soap in your room, that would be perfect to go into the shoe boxes.  We take so many small simple everyday items we use for granted.  For one of God’s children getting this simple shoe box it is a luxury to them.   It is a way to show this child God’s love and they do matter to God.  

As a reminder the following are a few items that are NOT ALLOWED in the shoeboxes.  No lotions, liquids, toothpaste, candy or anything war related.

As always if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask Michelle Osterhuber or email her at msosgo3166@gmail.com.  Thank you!

SNAP/FOOD STAMPS:  Lynn from the NH Food Bank will be here on October 22nd (at the Sonshine Community Table) at 5:00pm to discuss and help anyone who needs assistance in the application, renewal or questions about the NH State SNAP/Food Stamp Program. The Program can be sometimes frustrating applying, maneuvering around the website, or people are not sure they qualify, so Lynn will show and discuss with each individual (one on one) what they need to do or supply to the program for the receipt or continuous of Food Stamps.

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

OFFICE NOTES: Matt Chouinard and Pastor Kevin will be on vacation from July 29th – August 5th. If needed please call or email the office at marion@raymondbaptistchurch.com.

THERE ARE SPACES STILL AVAILABLE ~ SIGNUP TODAY! The Men’s Ministry is arranging a deep sea fishing trip. We are planning for Saturday July 28th. An all day trip starts at 8:00am and we are back at 5:00pm. Catching Haddock, Pollock and some Flounder. All family members are invited, the cost is $70 for adults and $45 for kids under twelve. If we get 15 folks on the list the cost is $50 per adult. We will meet at Gauron’s in Hampton Harbor, by the bridge. We can meet at the church if anyone needs a ride or to carpool over or meet at 7:00am at Gauron’s’ fishing in Hampton. If you have any questions or need more information please give Jeff Beach a call at 603-770-4386.

JELLY MAKING CLASS: Pat Morin will have a Jam making class July 28th at 9:00-11:00am in the Great Room Kitchen to make strawberry jam for the Welcome Kits. All are welcome to join. All supplies are provided. There is a signup sheet at the Welcome Center.

Can you sew?  Can you cut fabric?, Then come join RBC’s Women’s Ministry, and help change the course of a war-affected girl’s life! Friday, August 3rd, 9:00-3:00, RBC Basement

ChildVoice Pad Project: War-affected adolescent girls living in refugee settlements often do not have access to basic hygiene items—especially menstrual products. Not having these necessities actually can prevent a girl from attending school, which puts her at risk for ending up on the streets and falling prey to human traffickers. It’s a vicious cycle we hope to break with our innovative Pad Project.

The ChildVoice Pad Project includes the task of creating reusable menstrual pad kits, as well as educating girls in refugee camps on how to use them. This project relies on volunteers who work together in groups to cut out and sew the kits, which then will be sent over to the more than 850 girls ChildVoice currently serves in refugee settlements in northern Uganda.

RBC’s Women’s Ministry is joining this effort! If you can cut fabric or sew a simple pattern, you have the skills we need.  Bring your scissors, cutting boards, and sewing machines, etc. for a fun day of working together to give these young girls a chance to stay in school!   Sign up to volunteer at the Welcome Center. For more information, contact Krista Brown at 603-303-1722.

SUMMER YOUTH GROUP: The summer is full of activities for the Youth Group this year!! Sunday Aug 5th, Mel’s Fun Park (Cost:$20.00) 5:00-8:00pm; Aug 12th Hike at Pawtuckaway, 12:00-3:00pm; Aug 19th Capture the Flag Water Edition, 6:00-8:00pm at the Chouinard Farm in Candia, you will get wet this night!

RBC Weekly Newsletter (7/20/18)

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

Dear Raymond Baptist Church Family, I want to take a minute and thank all of you for your prayers and support on behalf of the Guatemala team. Our missions trip was truly a blessing to all of us. We saw God work in big and small ways. We were challenged in our faith and how we think. I want to share a few highlights.

The first thing that stood out is the extreme contrast between the rich and the poor. We learned that more than 90% of the wealth is owned by 5% of the people. The sad part is the poor stay poor with no chance of improving, while the rich become richer.

We had the opportunity to work at camp for the week. I was so challenged while there. Most of these kids are so happy and friendly. They don’t complain and were so grateful we were there. They have so little but are so joyful.

Wednesday night at camp we presented the gospel at a camp fire. Many teens accepted Christ as Savior and many more dedicated their life to Christ.

We again thank you, if you would like to hear more, our team will be presenting our story on August 19th during Church!!

Thank you from the Guatemala Team

The Outdoor Club is pleased to announce the date of the annual canoe and kayak trip.  Please join us on Saturday July 21st for a family friendly adventure on the Contoocook River just outside Concord, NH.  The group will meet at 9:15 am at the Church.  Canoe and Kayak rentals are available from the launch site. There is a $3.00 Launch Fee for all canoes/kayaks. Families can depart the beach area any time for the easy paddle downstream to the launch site.  Rentals are returned no later than 5pm.  Please sign up at the Welcome Center.  See you on the water!

SUMMER YOUTH GROUP: The summer is full of activities for the Youth Group this year!! Sunday July 22nd Cookout, 12:00pm-3:00pm, Great Room/Outdoor; July 26th, Jr. High, swimming & cookout at Wason Pond; Aug 5th, Mel’s Fun Park (Cost:$20.00) 5:00-8:00pm; Aug 12th Hike at Pawtuckaway, 12:00-3:00pm; Aug 19th Capture the Flag Water Edition, 6:00-8:00pm at the Chouinard Farm in Candia, you will get wet this night!

MEN’S MINISTRY The Men’s Ministry is arranging a deep sea fishing trip. All are welcome to participate. We are planning for Saturday July 28th. An all day trip starts at 8 and we are back at 5pm. Catching Haddock, Pollock and some Flounder. All family members are invited the cost is $70 for adults and $45 for kids under twelve. If we get 15 folks on the list the cost is $50 per adult.

Can you sew?  Can you cut fabric?, Then come join RBC’s Women’s Ministry, and help change the course of a war-affected girl’s life! Friday, August 3rd, 9:00-3:00, RBC Basement

ChildVoice Pad Project: War-affected adolescent girls living in refugee settlements often do not have access to basic hygiene items—especially menstrual products. Not having these necessities actually can prevent a girl from attending school, which puts her at risk for ending up on the streets and falling prey to human traffickers. It’s a vicious cycle we hope to break with our innovative Pad Project.

The ChildVoice Pad Project includes the task of creating reusable menstrual pad kits, as well as educating girls in refugee camps on how to use them. This project relies on volunteers who work together in groups to cut out and sew the kits, which then will be sent over to the more than 850 girls ChildVoice currently serves in refugee settlements in northern Uganda.

RBC’s Women’s Ministry is joining this effort! If you can cut fabric or sew a simple pattern, you have the skills we need.  Bring your scissors, cutting boards, and sewing machines, etc. for a fun day of working together to give these young girls a chance to stay in school!   Sign up to volunteer at the Welcome Center. For more information, contact Krista Brown at 603-303-1722.

TEEN CHALLENGE NEW ENGLAND: We will welcome our guest speakers Teen Challenge of New England on August 5th.  They are based in Manchester, NH and provide a Christian faith-based, residential care to young people and adults who struggle with life controlling problems. 

THE OUTDOOR CLUB: Free Wild Game Cooking Class with the return of New England’s Wild Cheff Denny Corriveau.  Denny is an internationally recognized chef known for his creative dishes incorporating wild game.  The theme of this next cooking class will be Fish:  Freshwater vs. Saltwater where Denny displays unique recipes for locally harvested Rainbow trout and Striped Bass.  Join us for unprecedented access, up close and personal, to one of America’s premier wild game chefs.  The class will be held Thursday Aug 9th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the RBC’s Great Room.  This event is family friendly and a playroom will be offered to children directly adjacent to cooking area. Sign up now to reserve your spot at this family friendly event by calling the church office at 603-895-2859 or by email at marion@raymondbaptistchurch.com.  Come join them and invite a friend!
