Thank You
Dear Church Family,
Thank you so much for the thoughts, prayers, cards, phone calls and kind words you have blessed our family with.  Knowing you were available to lean on has been a blessing to us.  My dad loved his church building, those who worshipped in it and his Lord.
Love to you all,
Connie (Slagle) and Family

Dear Friends,
Just a note to say “Thanks” for remembering me with a gift to Windmill Farm Bake Shop.  We have already made good use of the certificate!  Thank you also for your prayers.  I am getting stronger each day.  Continue to keep me in your prayers.
Judith Martin

Dear Friends,
There are not enough words to tell you how much I appreciate all you all did in my yard.  I was amazed to have such a large group of ten adults (Moms, Dads, Grandparents) and 8 children (ages 4 to 9).
We had fun.  The kids came with rakes, gloves and the work went fast because there were so many folks.  The children made my day!  I don’t get lonely very often, but I do miss your kids and talking to adults.
Our church should be proud of these children and what they are learning that will last them a lifetime in Christ.  When grandparents, Moms and Dads take their children to church and go with them, the children are learning by example.
My yard looks beautiful.  Thank you very much for coming to help me.  I love all of you.  The children who came are:  Noah R., Abigail, Silas, Noah S., Graham, Keagan, Keller, Kyleigh.  The adults who came are:  Earl, James, Brandy, Megan, Brad, Lauren, Jimmy, Linda, Hal, Tim, Patty.  Pray for this ministry.
With love, prayers and thanks,
Elizabeth Mills

Dear Church Family,
Thank you for the monetary gift at Christmas.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in the church office another year.
There was also a “secret Santa” who left me some lovely Christmas socks!  Thank you, too!
You are so important to me.  Your prayers and words of encouragement mean the world to me.
God bless you all,
Gail Martin

Dear Dan River Baptist Church Family,

January Bible Study 2022 Continues
The Book of Psalms is a compilation of songs that focus on humanity’s interaction with God.  Within these interactions, we discover God’s character as the songwriter speaks of God as a Shepherd, a King, a Redeemer, a Creator, Just, Holy, and more.  These songs give us deeper insight into God and how we are to relate to Him as His creation.  We find that He loves us and offers the opportunity to be His people and that doing so comes with the expectation of living in light of that relationship.
Join us Wednesdays at 7:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall as Bob Brown leads the study.  It will also be available on Facebook.

Listening and Amendment Sessions-Education Building Window Replacement
There will be a Listening and an Amendment Session Sunday, January 30, following the worship service to discuss the replacement of the windows in the Education Building.  The date for the vote will be announced later, possibly on January 30.

Pastor Search Committee Update
Just as the disciples were disappointed when Jesus was crucified, we too were disappointed when we learned of the prospective pastor's canceling the trip to visit with us.  To visit, with his family, our church, parsonage, the surrounding area, and the towns of Halifax and South Boston. The disciples experienced their "Joy in the Morning" experience when He appeared in their midst and we too had ours when we learned of his possibly visiting the last weekend of this month (Psalms 30:5 "...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.")  Please continue to pray for us, yourself, and he whom God has chosen.

Mission Action
We can help those without food by participating in our January church-wide mission action project, the collection of nonperishable foods for The Good Samaritan.  Please join us in this Souper Bowl of Caring.  Specific needs include packets of dry milk, cereal, canned meats, peanut butter, cake and cookie mixes, canned fruit, pasta, pasta sauce, soups, stews, etc.  On February 13, Super Bowl Sunday, a love offering will be taken for The Good Samaritan.  Baskets are placed in normal places for your donations.  If you’d like, Karen Smith will shop for you.
