Small Group Ministry
Our small groups are starting up again soon. Joining a group is a great way to dive deeper into the Word each week, make new friends, and encourage and challenge one another as we press on in our individual walks. If you would like to join a group, please pick up and complete a Small Group Information sheet from the Welcome Centre and submit it to the office as soon as possible.
Fall Women’s Event
Ladies, stay tuned for more information coming soon about the Ministry of Women’s fall event taking place on Thursday, October 11th at 7:00 p.m.
Our Meals Ministry is an important “one-another” ministry within the church body, providing meals to families with new babies and various other situations. This ministry could use a few more people willing to provide meals when needed. Meals do not have to be home-cooked and can be left in the church fridge/freezer for pickup. Please contact our Meals Ministry co-ordinators Janessa Klazinga (519-845-0085) or Amy Kelly (519-899-4204) if you are able to bless others with a meal occasionally.
Children’s Ministry Volunteer Paperwork
It’s that time of year again when we are required to update our files on every adult who serves in ministries to children and youth. If you are an adult who helps out in nursery, junior church, Sunday school, Awana, Quest, or Impact, you need to go see Helena at the table in the foyer after today’s service. If you are due for a police check, that paperwork will be ready for you as well.
Winter Gear for Students
While winter is officially more than three months down the road, we wanted to let you know that we will be collecting winter gear, including mittens, toques, scarves, socks, and coats for students at Lambton College some time in October. This is through our missions worker, Doug Thomson, who oversees The Rock on Campus ministry as chaplain at Lambton College. For those of you who are knitters, here is an opportunity to use your skills to bless international and domestic students at the college who may not be able to afford to purchase proper winter gear.
Lost and Found
All items left in the Lost & Found will soon be donated to the Missions Thrift Store. Please pick up your items today or you may need to buy them back at the store.
Huron Baptist Church Hymn Sing
There will be a hymn sing at Huron Baptist Church next Sunday, September 23rd at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come and sing praises to the Lord together!
Pregnancy Options & Support Centre Fundraisers
Baby Bottle Campaign - A baby bottle can not only sustain a baby’s life, but can also give education, support, encouragement and care. Last year over 700 appointments happened at the Centre. You can be part of this ministry to women and couples, offering God’s love in the most practical ways to those in need with your financial support.
For those who would rather write a cheque than collect coins in the bottle, please take one of the envelopes provided. Bottles and envelopes need to be returned to the church office by Thanksgiving Sunday, October 7th.
Ride for Refuge - This new fall fundraiser consists of a 5km walk and/or a 25km bike ride on Saturday, September 29th. For more information call the Centre at 519-383-7115 or go to the website: https://rideforrefuge.org/location/sarnia
