Youth News

A couple of weeks ago we had to cancel our Wednesday Night Program due to the inclement weather.  Many of you had expressed an interest in the program dealing with the difference between Cooperative Baptists and Southern Baptists.  We have good news…the Kitchen Committee and Dr. Bob Dale have agreed to make up this date on Wednesday, May 2.  We will have a regular Wednesday night dinner and the program to follow.  Please note, there will be no children or youth programs that evening.

The annual Youth Scavenger Hunt will be held after church on Sunday, April 22.  We will have lunch directly after the Worship Service and then we will team up and compete for the 2018 winner of the GABC Youth Scavenger Hunt.  This has happened in the past on camping trips and has been one of our favorite activities.  If you are interested in signing up, please let B.J. know by Sunday, April 15.

Calling All Cookie Bakers!

 It is that time of year where I need lots and lots of homemade cookies (150 Dozen) to take to Greensville Regional Correctional Center for the Kairos Prison Ministry. The Kairos weekend will happen April 19-22.  Please place 1 dozen cookies, approximately 2-2.5 inches in diameter, in quart size ziplock bags, and place them in the bin located by the Youth Pastor’s office no later than Tuesday 4/17. You can make these early and I can freeze them, as they thaw just fine. Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Sugar, or Snickerdoodles are all on the approved list. Please no cookies with large chunks of candy, frosting, or sugar coating.  If you would like to attend the closing ceremony, donate money, need me to pick up the cookies, or have any questions please contact me.  Tom Ball

150th Anniversary Update

The 6”x 6” square trivets will have cork backing so the history cannot be applied to them. Display stands for the plates will also be available for purchase. These items make wonderful gifts for yourself, your family, or anyone who has a special place in their heart for Glen Allen Baptist Church. The plates will be sold for $15, the trivets for $10 and the plate stands for $3. Proceeds from the sale of these items will go toward the Building Fund loan balance. Sign Up sheets for those interested in purchasing any of these items will be placed on the table just outside the fellowship hall and in the Welcome Center until 5/31/18.   Please contact Kelda Flinchum with any questions, at kelda116@verizon.net .
