Winter Bible Study 2020:  Jeremiah
The Winter Bible study began January 15.  There are two sessions each week.  The morning session is at 11:00 AM each Wednesday and 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.

The youth will meet at the church at 10:00 AM Saturday, January 25, to prepare for their visit at Commonwealth Assisted Living, South Boston, and to ride to the facility to deliver the gifts they made for the residents, have devotions and visit with the residents.  They should return to the church by noon.

Baptist Men’s Day
We will observe Baptist Men’s Day, Sunday, January 26.  The day will begin with breakfast (cost recovery) for the men.  J. R. Griffin will do a devotion at breakfast.  The men will be in charge of the service at 11:00 AM.  Sign up sheets for breakfast are in the classrooms and at entrances to the Sanctuary.  Sign up deadline is Wednesday, January 22.  Please sign one of the sheets or call the Church Office at 434-572-3547.
Matt Rich, from the Young Life organization, will be our guest speaker.  A Love Offering for the Young Life organization will be collected as we leave the service.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Elevator Fund
The Budget Committee made a motion at the January business meeting to establish an Elevator Fund with a base minimum of $25,000 from the Hawkins’ gift.  Details of this motion and the project will be discussed at a Listening Session on Sunday, January 26, at 3:00 PM.  An Amendment Session is scheduled for Sunday, February 2, at 2:30 PM.  A vote will be taken Sunday, February 9, just prior to the service.

Hotdog Lunch and Entertainment
The Recreation and Fellowship Committee is planning a Hotdog Lunch immediately following the service Sunday, February 2.  The Children’s Committee has invited Travis the Balloon Dude to entertain following lunch.  Everyone is invited to stay for his presentation.

VBS Informational Meeting
If you are interested in helping with VBS this summer, please join us for a planning meeting Sunday, February 9, at 3:00 PM in the fellowship hall.  We will choose dates, materials and begin the planning process for this fantastic, fun outreach for our children and community!  If you cannot attend, please contact Amanda Shepperd to sign up to help!
