PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER GIVING TO THE ANNIE ARMSTRONG EASTER OFFERING

During the springtime, Southern Baptists across the United States come together to give financial resources to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (www.anniearmstrong.com).  The purpose of this offering is to assist the North American Mission Board (namb.org) in ministering to people in North America who do not know Jesus Christ as their Savior. Please prayerfully seek God’s will in giving to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.  It is important to know that 100% of this offering will go toward supporting mission salaries and projects of the NAMB. FBC’s goal for 2015 is $15,000.00. To contribute to this fund, write your check to “First Baptist Church” and list Annie Armstrong in the memo line.

THE SAMARITAN CLINIC

The Samaritan Clinic (http://www.samaritanhealthcenter.org) needs volunteers to help with their clinics. Any health care person with an active license in good standing and/or student (many students from the Triangle come to help) can help. Spanish speakers are especially helpful. This is a Christian clinic which helps the poor in Durham County. If you want to help contact Elizabeth Brill, the administrator. If you need more information contact Ron Halbrooks.

SLAVERY TO SCONES TEA – SATURDAY, MARCH 21

What does slavery have to do with scones and tea?  Slavery to Scones is a ministry that uses a bakery as a means of providing funds for a safe house, and employment for financially and sexually exploited women – over 35,000 of which exist in this one city alone!  Come hear members from our FBCD missions team share how God is using this ministry to spread the gospel and provide hope to these women. We will meet at 10:30am in Room 352, and we will be taking up a love offering to support some urgent financial needs of this ministry. Sign up online or by calling the church office 919-688-7308, ext. 33.

TRIP TO POLAND, AUGUST 1-9

Kevin Schaub will be leading a team August 1-9 to Poland to work with the International Mission Board to host one of their “annual group meetings.” Our role along with other area churches will be to provide childcare, children’s and youth ministry, and a number of other service roles for the missionaries as they attend this training conference, giving us a chance to encourage and minister to missionaries so they can return to ministry refreshed and renewed for the year to come. We have a few spots left for this team; if you’re interested in going, contact Kevin for more information.
