Dan River's Mainstream

Welcome!
We welcome Brandy Seamster to our congregation.  Brandy came before the church, seeking baptism, Sunday, September 8th. 

Thank You
Thank you for your prayers.  We know without a doubt that God truly answered these prayers and we will forever be grateful to those that we know and do not know that prayed for him (us) during this difficult time.
Please continue to remember us in your prayers and always know we are so very grateful to each of you for all of your love, concern, support but mostly your prayers.
With love and thanks!
Ronnie and Marilyn Overby


September Mission Night-Together as One
Bruce Slagle will be the speaker for our September Mission Night Wednesday, September 11.  Bruce will be sharing with us about his recent medical mission trip to Restauracion, Dominican Republic.  Dinner will begin at 6:00 and the program will be at 7:00 in the Fellowship Hall.
This is part of our missions emphasis this week during the Alma Hunt Week of Prayer for Missions.  The theme this year is Together as One.  We look forward to hearing about Bruce's trip and how God blessed him and those they served in the Dominican Republic.  Please plan to join us!


ATTENTION ALL YOUTH
Beginning September 15, we will be doing David Platt’s youth Bible study Follow Me.  This is a 6 part DVD and workbook series based on David Platt’s book, Follow Me, where we will examine what Jesus really meant when He said, “Follow Me.”  Hope to see you there!


Mission Friends Resumes
Mission Friends resumed Wednesday, September 4, at 7:00 PM.  All children age three and up are invited to join us as we learn about God's work through missionaries around the world.  Our learning activities include hearing stories, making crafts, and playing games.  We will meet in the classroom upstairs across from the church office.  If you have any questions, please contact Patty Davis at 572-6231 or Megan Ferrell at 470-6349.


New Bible Study
Wednesday, September 4, Doug introduced a new Bible study, Difference Makers (How to Live a Life of Impact & Purpose) by Gregg Matte.  Live with a greater commitment to make a difference where you are, learning from the examples of unlikely biblical difference makers.  Understand how the Holy Spirit leads and empowers believers for world-changing ministry, and recognize that the purpose to make a difference is found in Jesus.


God’s Girls
God's Girls, a Bible study for middle and high school girls, resumed meeting on Thursday, September 5.  The time, this year is from 7:00 - 8:00 PM weekly.  Our study is Seamless:  Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story.  We will learn how the whole Bible - from Genesis through Revelation - connects as one beautiful, seamless thread.  Jenny Plitt and Karen Smith are the facilitators of this group, and they will be glad to answer questions.  Let Karen or Jenny know if you are willing to provide light snacks for their meetings.


College Addresses
Our college aged youth are heading back to school.  Please get your college addresses to the Church Office as soon as possible so the Church Family can keep in touch.


Alma Hunt State Missions Emphasis
During the month of September, our missions focus turns to our state mission offering.  The annual offering for Virginia missions is named for Alma Hunt, a native Virginian who was known worldwide for her missions service and her unswerving dedication to the cause of Christ.  The offering provides funding for all Woman’s Missionary Union of Virginia missions and ministries and makes possible other special ministries, outreach projects, and initiatives not funded through regular streams of giving (but uniquely connected to Virginia Baptists).  Our church's goal is $1,200; please prayerfully consider your gift and give to support the Alma Hunt State Missions Offering.
