The Youth will be participating in TOP at Clay Park on Sunday, November 4th directly following the Worship Service.  We will meet in the Fellowship Hall.  We need youth, adults, and congregation members too!  This is a great opportunity to give back and help those in need. 

On Friday, November 16th, the Youth will have their annual lock-in at the church.  This is for all Youth, grades 6-12.  Bring a friend with you!  We will meet at church at 8 PM that evening and pickup time is 7 AM the following morning.  The cost is $5 per youth attending.  As always, we need adults to help chaperone.  Please sign up with B.J. if you are interested.

Thanksgiving Boxes

Please remember that the Genesis Sunday School Class will be collecting monies for Thanksgiving Boxes for those less fortunate at Thanksgiving.  Let’s see if we can fill at least 20 Thanksgiving boxes or more.  Make your checks payable to GABC for any amount and put “Thanksgiving boxes” on the memo line.  We are hoping we can get some good bargains as Thanksgiving gets closer and cut the cost, but as it stands now, each box will cost about $50-$65.  This includes a gift card for a turkey.

Alma Hunt Offering for State Missions

Please prayerfully consider a gift to state missions during the month of October.  Although you may give at any time, our emphasis is through October.  Alma Hunt “was a native Virginian who was known worldwide for her missions’ service and her unswerving dedication to the cause of Christ.”  The Alma Hunt offering is a joint venture of the Virginia Women’s Missionary Union and the Baptist General Association of Virginia that helps fund special ministries and outreach projects not funded through regular giving.  The statewide goal is $1,167,500.  There are envelopes for this offering in your pack of envelopes and in the pew racks.  The date on the envelopes (September 17-23) was the week of prayer for state missions, but please feel free to give at any time.

Linda Davidson on behalf of the Missions Committee
