PARENT-CHILD DEDICATION

Our Parent-Child Dedication will be on Mother’s Day, May 10, during the morning worship service.  This is an opportunity for parents to publically “set apart” their child to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:11, Luke 2:21-22), and to commit to raise him/her up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4).  If you would like to participate, please contact Elisa Winn or Kimberly Hutchinson by Sunday, May 3.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR NEW BABY MEALS

The Lord is blessing FBC with lots of new babies! One way we as members of First Baptist can bless these families is with meals—but we need more volunteers! Please contact Leah Finn to be added to the New Baby Meal list. This will NOT commit you to making a meal, but will add you to the contact list for meals as the babies arrive. You can then chose to make a meal or not. Send Leah an email at leahpfinn@yahoo.com or call her at 919-280-3855 to be added to this vital ministry. Thank you!
