RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

If anyone feels a need to sit down or stand at any given time during the Worship Service please feel free to do so.

HELP NEEDED: The beautiful weather is here and the grass is growing! And the mowing team is looking for 3 more volunteers to occasionally help mow the church property. Every week two volunteers get together on Saturday morning at 8 AM to help keep the property looking sharp. Regular tasks include use of the riding mower, push mower, and string trimmer. It usually takes about 1.5 to 2 hrs. Our goal is to have enough volunteers so that everyone only needs to mow once per month. You can help make that dream a reality! Please contact Jon Thurber (jthurbs@gmail.com) if you are interested in helping out this season.

GRADUATES: We will be honoring those who will be graduating High School or College in 2018. Please help us know who they are by leaving their name at the Welcome Center or emailing the Office. If you know of a Kindergartener who is graduating please let Marion know.

NEW PARKING LOT: A year ago we purchased land  to work towards a plan to give the Church more parking, a second entrance and space for future growth. God has blessed enormously with this purchase and God has been faithful through you, His People! But coming up with a plan was just the first step.  With Spring comes the task of planning and paying for the new parking lot needed. Please prayerfully consider how and if you are able to help fund the new parking lot as we moved forward this Spring.

The Friends of The Dudley-Tucker Library and NH Humanities present – New England’s Colonial Meetinghouses and Their Impact on American Society

New England’s colonial meetinghouses embody an important yet little-known chapter in American history. Built mostly with tax money, they served as both places of worship and places for town meetings, and were the centers of life in colonial New England communities. Using photographs of the few surviving “mint condition” meetinghouses as illustrations, Paul Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture.

Happy Anniversary! In case you didn’t know, April 18th was the 68th anniversary of the start of Raymond Baptist Church!

Here is a the beginning of the church record dated April 18th, 1950

“A meeting of the Raymond Community Bible Club was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Porter. The purpose of this meeting, to discuss and make plans for a free church.”

At this first meeting were 12 people. God has seen this ministry through many years, and still has a plan for us. May we continue to stay close to Him and listen well as we continue on in the mission He placed on the hearts of this group.
