Harvest Day 2017 Special Offering
What a great day of worship, fellowship and a powerful movement of the Holy Spirit at this years Harvest Day! Thank you to our Decoration Ministry Team for the wonderful decorations all over the church and to our Family Life Ministry Team for organizing and serving during the fellowship meal. Thank you to our Choir and Worship Team for the wonderful special music and time of worship and to our church body for your faithfulness and warm, welcoming spirit. Even with the storms and rain, we had a full house and the Spirit of God moved through the entire day as His love, grace, mercy and faithfulness was evident by all who joined us. After being led by the Lord to change directions for our annual Harvest Day offering with the offering going to Hurricane Relief for Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico instead of our construction project we took up $30,617.00 on Sunday and after taking care of our weekly budget needs combined with online giving and other designated money we will dedicate over $25,000.00 to meeting the physical needs of those who have been hurt by these disasters. What a powerful testimony to your faithfulness and obedience to God's call on our church!!! Praise the Lord! After we have all the final totals, our Missions Ministry Team will meet to determine how and where to distribute the funds between 4 specific Baptist churches in Texas whose facilities were decimated or destroyed by the storms and floods and the relief organizations Samaritan's Purse and The Baptist Men of North Carolina who are working with local churches on the ground in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
Thank you First Baptist Church for your faithfulness and may God get all the glory and praise!
