January is Baptist Men’s Focus Month.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
We are lifting up the men in our church during the month of January. We appreciate the men who serve in our church and who set an example as a mentor and and example to others, both within their own households as well as in the community. We encourage the entire family to join us for our special gatherings and worship opportunities this month. Help us spread the word and invite all the men in your life to come be a part of our church.
Upcoming Baptist Men’s Events:
January 17, 2018 at 6:30 PM – Gideons Speaker
Join us in the sanctuary for Wednesday Worship. We will hear from a guest speaker with Gideons International. Prepare to be inspired by his testimony of this ministry, and feel free to ask questions about how they put Bibles in the hands of people who need them. Our collection that night will go towards this ministry, and 100% of the donations will go towards the printing cost of Bibles that will be distributed.

After worship, we encourage our men to stick around to rehearse our songs for Baptist Men’s Sunday. Many voices make for a stronger sound, so please consider joining us. We will also rehearse one more time at 10:35 AM on Sunday morning, January 21st, before the service.
