New changes for Sunday School

This coming Sunday, September 13, we are resuming 9:15 AM Sunday School for Preschoolers, Children, and Youth!  Many thanks go to all those serving in these areas!

State Missions

This coming Sunday also begins the Week of Prayer for State Missions.  Your special offerings go to support Alabama WMU, Disaster Relief, Church Planting, Partnership Missions, and Church Revitalization.  Our church goal is $7,500.00.  Please pick up your Prayer Guide this coming Sunday as you enter the Sanctuary.

Mrs. Patsy Vines

Life has been different in so many ways for several months, but one way our worship services have been different for quite some time is that we have been missing Mrs. Patsy Vines at the Piano.  Mrs. Patsy has informed us that she does not feel like she can continue to fulfill her duties as our pianist!  Many thanks for your prayers for her as she has made this decision.  What a wonderful blessing she has been to First Baptist, Clanton, and to so many piano students, not only in her excellence as a musician, but also in her sharing the gospel with them along the way.  Her diligence to bring praise to the Lord through her talent has been a powerful blessing to our Lord’s kingdom.  I know that many of you will find ways to thank her personally for her service, and for the expression of Christ through her life.  One thing we would like to do as a church is to share some video testimonies with her.  Bro. Bill is going to set up one of our new cameras in the sanctuary, so that if you would like to share a brief video testimony with Mrs. Patsy, you can come do that this coming Wednesday, September 9, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM, and also, this coming Sunday, September 13, following the morning worship service.  Certainly, you can also choose to write a personal card of thanks and encouragement if you would like.  Praise the Lord for God’s instrument of righteousness, Mrs. Patsy Vines!

Deacons

Those rotating on to the Deacon Ministry for this new church year are as follows:  Bobby Boozer; Scott Hudson; Steve Karn; Brison Mote; Jim Pitts; and Buddy Vines.  Our new year organizational Deacons Meeting is this coming Monday, September 14, at 6:30 PM in Room 210.

 Please let your deacon or the church staff know if we can help you in any way.  As we gradually increase our services and organizational meetings, there are many details to be considered.  Thank you for your patience, and “Thanks!” to the so many of you who are serving in various capacities.  Please share this newsletter with those who do not use email or Facebook.
