Dan River's Mainstream

Baptismal Service
There will be a baptismal Service, Sunday, February 23.  At that time Kylie, Cameron and Layne Satterfield will be baptized.  Their parents are Jeremy and Kristy Satterfield.


Elevator Fund
The Budget Committee’s amended proposal to establish an Elevator Fund with a base minimum of $25,000 from the Hawkins’ gift was approved at a called business session Sunday, February 16.  The vote was 66 yes, 24 no.

  1. That Dan River Baptist Church proceed with the installation of an elevator within our church facilities.  The installation of the elevator will be at a location and on a date to be determined by the church’s Building Committee as approved by the church in due process.
  2. That an “elevator fund” be established as a separate account, and that $25,000 of the funds bequeathed to the church by Bennie and Louise Hawkins be included in this fund.
  3. That the Building Committee should not begin securing estimates and bids for the installation of the elevator until this fund reaches or exceeds $125,000 cash value by March 1, 2022.
  4. That an ad hoc “Capital Campaign Committee” be appointed by the moderator.  This committee shall consist of five (5) members from the congregation with one of the members being named chair.  It shall be the task of this committee to determine the best procedure(s) necessary to raise the needed funds for the elevator and to implement those procedures.

Winter Bible Study 2020:  Jeremiah
There are two sessions each week for the Winter Bible study.  The morning session is at 11:00 AM each Wednesday.  The evening session is at 7:00 PM each Wednesday evening.
In this 2020 Winter Bible Study, we will examine the life and message of Jeremiah to gain insight into how believers today can be faithful to the call of God in our lives.


Youth Group
The youth will meet Sunday, February 23, at 6:00 PM for dinner, a time of fellowship, and Bible study.  Please invite your friends.  Hope to see you there!


Song Service
There will be a song service at Dan River Sunday, March 8, at 4:00 PM.  Music will be provided by Jenny Plitt, River Creek Band, The Worship Center, and Countyline Missionary Baptist Church.  This service will offer a variety of music styles from Southern Gospel, to Contemporary, to Traditional Gospel music.  Refreshments will be served directly after the service in the Fellowship Hall.


Vacation Bible School - Mark Your Calendars Today!
Vacation Bible School is scheduled for June 22-26, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM.  The 2020 theme is “Concrete & Cranes.”  LifeWay’s 2020 VBS: Concrete & Cranes, Building on the Love of Jesus (Philippians 1:6) shows kids the foundation that lasts.  As kids explore a world of concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes, they will learn to build their faith on Jesus as they uncover the truth that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it on to completion.
An adult class will also be provided.  The time will be announced later.


Altar Flowers
Volunteers are needed to provide flowers for worship services each week.  If you would like to provide flowers for worship in honor or in memory of someone, or perhaps, simply provide flowers for worship, you can sign up on the Flower Chart on the bulletin board outside the Sanctuary.
