May Bible Study

What is wrong with today’s world? Have you ever thought this and said to yourself, “I wish I could go back to a time like things were in Mayberry?” Well, look no further! Our May Bible Study will be based on “The Mayberry Bible Study Series.” Dr. Crowder will lead a 4-week series on service, mercy, peace and commitment. Each one of these themes uses an episode from the Andy Griffith Show coupled with scripture to help us in these four important areas of our life. We will meet at 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall on May 16, 23 & 30.

Historical Homecoming Worship Service, Sunday, April 29

Historical Homecoming Worship Service, Sunday, April 29.  “Here is the church. Here is the steeple. Open the doors!

Worship Service will be followed by dinner on the grounds.  The committee is requesting that the Sunday School Classes bring the following:  3G’s Class – Desserts; Genesis Class– Desserts; Faith & Fellowship Class– Deviled Eggs; Ruth Fidelis Class – Deviled Eggs

Commemorative Plates, Trivets, and Notecards

Commemorative Plates and Trivets are being offered to celebrate our 150th Anniversary.  Each of these items will have a single color illustration of our church on ​the front and the 9 ¼” plates will have the church’s history fired on the back.

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.
