Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions
WHY IS THE EASTER OFFERING NAMED FOR ANNIE?
In 1895, an offering was first collected for the work of the Home Missions Board.  In 1934, this offering was renamed the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for Home Missions to honor the work of Annie Armstrong as a tireless advocate for giving, praying and going to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who did not know him.
Our missions focus in March is North American Missions.  Our offering Goal for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions is $2,000.


2019 Winter Bible Study
The 2019 Winter Bible Study is The Letters to the Seven Churches; Revelation 1-3.  There are 2 sessions each Wednesday.  The morning session is at 11:00 AM and the evening session, at 7:00 PM.


Spring Lunch and Easter Egg Hunt
The Recreation and Fellowship Committee will provide a barbecue lunch following the worship service Sunday, April 7.  Everyone is invited.
The Children’s Committee will have an Easter Egg Hunt for the children after lunch.
The Children’s Committee is currently collecting candy for the Easter Egg Hunt.  Containers, for your donations, are at the entrance to the Education Building and in the Fellowship Hall.


Mission Action
In March we are supporting the Dan River Baptist Association’s WMU Book Ministry by purchasing Leveled Readers for students in local schools, (levels 1 and 2), or by contributing “Bucks for Books.”  Money collected will be used to purchase these books.


From the Flower Committee
We were notified by Puryear’s Florist that beginning April 1, the price of altar flowers would increase to $45.00 per arrangement.  The Flower Committee has decided to get future arrangements from Buttercups Florist.  Arrangements will continue to be $35.00.

Walk MS:  Richmond Walk
This year we will walk for me, in memory of our Evan, and for all other MS warriors.  We walk to help fund research to find the much-needed cure for Multiple Sclerosis.  There are more than 1 million Americans, like me, who live with the unpredictability of MS, and your support can and will make changes in our lives.


Walk MS:  Richmond Walk
This year’s MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Walk will hold special meaning for us. Our Evan died on August 11, 2018, from MS and diabetic complications.  He struggled with MS for ten LONG years and diabetes, caused by high dose steroids, for about eight of those years.  No treatment worked for him, so he lived, yet worked, in constant pain.  We are grateful he is no longer in pain, but that does not make losing him any easier.  The last visit we had with him before his death was at last year’s MS Walk!
This year we will walk for me, in memory of our Evan, and for all other MS warriors.  We walk to help fund research to find the much-needed cure for Multiple Sclerosis.  There are more than 1 million Americans, like me, who live with the unpredictability of MS, and your support can and will make changes in our lives.

The National MS Society is currently kicking off its annual Walk MS:  Richmond Walk to be held on May 4.  Of course, this year, my family is walking.  I am fundraising for this event, and I am asking you to join me in the fight against MS by making a contribution to support my effort.  Make all checks payable to: National MS Society and put my name in the memo space, or you may donate on-line by clicking here.
