RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

The Office will be closed on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL

“Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations” (Psalm 100:4-5).

Month of December ~ Advent Series: “Choose Joy”  

12/01/19:- First Sunday of Advent – Communion Sunday – “Why Choose Joy?” We may have heard it said, “The joy is the Lord my strength” but sometimes the truth is that joy is not something we choose, desire, or even want. How can we make an intentional choice of joy to get us through the holiday season? (Nehemiah 8:1-12 – Communion).

THANKSGIVING SUNDAY OFFERING: This Sunday we ask our members and friends to give above your normal giving for a special Thanksgiving offering. The proceeds of this year’s Thanksgiving offering will go towards Leah Unger’s mission to provide clean water and a medical help to the girls in Uganda. Leah’s goal is to raise $50,000 by her birthday in January, and currently with her sister Abby and her parents have already raised over $31,000 for this ministry. So on Sunday December 1st please consider making a donation and mark it “Thanksgiving Offering.” Thanks to Leah and her family for modeling in a very practical way Jesus’ love for others.

Phil & Jen Wilson of AMG International, Guatemala will be visiting on December 8th. Please join the Adult Sunday School at 9:00am in the Great Room for a Missions Update.

CHRISTMAS DRAMA: It’s that time again for our annual Free Christmas Drama, our gift to the community. This year the RBC Players will perform “Rented Christmas, The Musical” by Norman and Yvonne Ahern, Produced by Special Arrangement with Pioneer Drama Services, Inc. The drama will be performed on Friday and Saturday evenings, December 13th and 14th at 7:00pm and Sunday December 15th at 2:00pm.  The story begins as a lonely businessman walks along in town and feel the excitement and love of Christmas that is in the air. He remembers past Christmases with its happiness and love. He then spots a shop sign that reads “We Rent Anything”. He has an idea and he enters into the shop. Come and find out what John Dale decides to do…There are tickets available to hand out to friends, family and people you don’t know yet. Pick up your tickets today at the Welcome Center.

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

Month of November: “Thanks for the Grace” ~ There are many reasons we have to  give thanks. People, life, but rarely do we think about giving thanks for grace. In this season of Thanksgiving, can we take the time to focus on the grace that God provides for us each day.

GUEST SPEAKER THIS SUNDAY 11/17/19:  Dane Fowlkes serves as Senior Regional Director of Church Partnerships for Samaritan’s Purse and directs the national Church Partnerships team. He is currently in his fifth year with Samaritan’s Purse, having served previously for many years as a missions professor and missionary to East Africa and India. He holds the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Missiology from The University of the Free State in South Africa. He is married to Jo Beth Fowlkes. Dane also has written a book titled Ordinary Glory: Finding Grace in the Commonplace”: a book of reflections on the extraordinary potential of an ordinary life. “Ordinary Glory: Finding Grace in the Commonplace” Published author Dane Fowlkes, has led anything but a dull existence—from initiation into an African tribe in northern Kenya where he is known as Jilo, a name that means “a season of celebration,” to living near Gandhi’s ashram on the Sabarmati River in Gujarat, India. Dane served as pastor of several churches before being appointed for missionary service in Kenya. He worked with an unreached tribe in northern Kenya and equipped existing churches around Mount Kenya to establish new ones, later becoming dean of Kenya Baptist Theological College and leading a national program of theological education for pastors. After two terms of service in Kenya, he moved to India, before returning to the United States.

This will be a very special and informative Sunday so we look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday to meet and greet Dana with our Raymond Baptist Church warm welcome.

From the Covill’s: They have a gently used twin mattress and box spring that they would give to someone in need of it. It is perfect for a child, 2-10 or so. It would be a bit firm for an adult. Also they know of someone looking to find a home for a cat. It’s an indoor, very friendly cat, not sure how old but full grown. She won’t share a litter box, though, so she would need to be the only cat in the house. Seems like a great cat for an older person. Give Jean Covill a call or email if you have any questions or are interested.

dividerCOMMUNITY EVENTS

Drug Take Back Day – October 26, 10am – 2pm at Walgreens – Some important information.  

  1. Taking in narcotics is still a priority but anxiety medication like Adderall and Xanax have become a growing concern for misuse amongst teens. This is where we need your help to raise awareness to the importance of mediation safety for storage and disposal and making sure prescriptions are being used by the intended patient.
  2. The DEA is allowing for the disposal of vaping devices to encourage people quitting this very dangerous trend. Please visit and share our RCFY resource page with parents so they have information and resources to talk with the children in their lives.
  3. We take all drugs, for humans and pets, and needles in sealed containers.  We DO NOT TAKE used needles but can instruct you on how to safely dispose of these with an old detergent bottle.
  4. It is also Red Ribbon Week – Another DEA inspired prevention event encouraging people to wear a red ribbon to start a conversation about the importance of talking with the young people in your life about the prevention of alcohol and drug misuse.  Talking points and resources can be found here. If you would like a red ribbon, or bowl of them for your location, please contact our office.  This is a great photo opportunity to be promoted on our social sites too!   We have stick on ribbons that are free and pins that are $5 with all proceeds supporting our awareness to this important event.   Our theme this year is Courage – to be a leader, to have a conversation, to say ‘no’, to make a difference. 

 

Thank you for your support and all of your help promoting these events and raising awareness to the important role prevention has in our community.  Working together we can reach a much larger amount of people, to have an even greater impact.   These two events cover the two simple primary prevention actions we can take to reduce substance misuse – 1. reducing access to substance and 2. increasing awareness to their dangers.

 

If you have any questions please let me know.  Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day,  

Celeste Clark,

RCFY Director

How do we respond when the pressure to perform overwhelms us? From where do I obtain my sense of worth and value?.

9/29/19: “The Drama of Anxiety” 1 Peter 5:5-11 ~ “What is it that causes anxiety in my life and how does my response affect me and others around me?”
