May/June Sermon Series- “When Heaven is Dark. When Doubt Challenges Our Lives”

When our doubts hide the light heaven.  In this series we will look at the doubts and fears that come into our lives and how they can challenge the very core of our lives and our faith.

5/26- “The Doubt of Silence” Psalm 13



SONSHINE COMMUNITY TABLE: We have had consistent numbers at the Sonshine Community Table over the past year(s), which is a blessing, but with Summer fast approaching and vacations happening we find that we need many more helpers. Do you have an hour and a half of time to spare on every other Monday night? Two teams that rotate every other week are compiled of 35+ volunteers to shop, prepare, cook, set up, serve and clean. If you are interested in helping out on a regular basis or as needed, please let us know – we would be glad to have you! To do this, contact Mark & Kathy Hassenpflug or Lynn Breeze to discuss details or signup.

FOOD PANTRY:  We have some very exciting news! The Hannaford Supermarket located in Raymond NH has chosen the Raymond Baptist Church Food Pantry as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program! This means for the entire month of May 2019, every time the Fight Hunger bag is purchased at the Raymond Hannaford, we receive $1! This is truly a great opportunity for us and an easy way for you to show your support for our Food Pantry.  Please go to the store, find the reusable bag rack and buy a few bags! And remember to spread the word – the more bags purchased, the bigger donation to the RBC Food Pantry.
