Glen Allen Day is Coming!

Glen Allen Day is right around the corner!  It is hard to believe that it is less than a month away.  As always, we need YOUR help!  On Saturday, October 20th, Glen Allen Baptist Church will participate in a couple of different parts of the program as usual.  Debbie Gordon is heading up the float for this year and help is always needed.  If you are able to help with the float, please reach out to Debbie in person, or you can reach her at debbiejgordon@verizon.net .  In addition, we need volunteers to help run our booth in the vendor area.  We need volunteers who are willing to work two-hour shifts during the day from the following times:  9:00 – 11:00 AM, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM, and 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM.  During this time you would hand out information about the church and spread the joy of what we do here at GABC.  If you are able to help during any of these shifts, please contact Matt Davidson

Lamb’s Basket

GABC collected 216 lbs of food for the Lamb’s Basket in August and September! Thank you so much!  As the harvest season is upon us and we begin to think about the holidays ahead, please consider donations to the Lamb’s Basket that would be particularly useful at this time of year.  Canned vegetables, broth, gravy, stuffing mix, pastas, and sauces are good choices for fall meal prep.  Thank you for supporting this important community outreach!  Mary Daniels on behalf of the Missions Committee.

Youth News

The Youth Fall Retreat is right around the corner from October 19-21 in Crozet, VA at the Misty Mountain Camp Resort.  We have several cabin and tent spaces reserved.  This is a great trip that is always one of our more popular events of the year.  The adult chaperones usually have just as much fun as our Youth.  Let B.J. know by Sunday, October 7th if you plan on attending.

Back by popular demand is the Tacky Light Tour on Friday, December 7th. I know this is a ways off, but we have reserved a 35 passenger bus and want to get the date on everyone’s calendar. We will meet at church @ 6 PM for dinner and then jump on the bus. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will be at the Thompson’s that night so we will have a chance to visit there along with many other locations. Last time we filled up the bus, so seats are on a first come, first serve basis. This is open to families of Youth as well! Let B.J. know if you would like to sign up.
