SPECIALLY CALLED MEMBERS’ MEETING
We will have a Specially Called Members’ Meeting on Sunday, June 30 at the conclusion of our morning worship service. The item of business will be the election of the elder nominated at our recent May Members’ Meeting.
EVANGELISM OPPORTUNITY ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS THIS SUMMER
We all seek to be faithful evangelists but sometimes we just need to be encouraged by others and observe how to share the gospel. On Wednesday evenings this summer, we want to invite anyone interested to join Philip McDuffie (and others) in the Welcome Center to go out in small groups through downtown Durham for the purpose of sharing our faith. We will offer two time slots each Wednesday to best accommodate your availability. Join us from 5:00-6:15pm or 6:15-7:30pm and we will evangelize the city of Durham every Wednesday evening this summer.
GLOBAL HUNGER FUND
Every dollar given to the Southern Baptist Global Hunger Fund will go to help alleviate hunger in impoverished areas. These funds are used to provide food for children and families worldwide, and also in areas where Southern Baptists have an opportunity to follow up with individuals for evangelism and discipleship. For more details go to globalhungerrelief.com. You may give to this fund online via First Durham Connection, or please write your check to “First Baptist Church of Durham” and write “Global Hunger Fund” in the memo line.
HAVE YOU JOINED FIRST DURHAM CONNECTION (REALM)?
First Durham Connection (Realm) is our online interface which helps members easily communicate with one another. It has an easy-to-use online membership directory, allows online giving, communication with your Home Fellowship group, BFL class, ministry teams, and more! To join, please contact the church office and an email invitation will be sent to you (please check your Junk/Spam folders for an email from email@example.com).
