SUNDAY SCHOOL CHANGES

(From Ms. Tracy)


Thanks be to God that we have grown in numbers! As a result, our Sunday school classes are splitting up into groups after we come together and have breakfast like we always do. This change has been really hard for me. I love all the children and youth and I want what’s best for them. God brought others to him so that they could also teach about Him. I have to say that my faith has grown so much since God called me to be the Children and Youth director at First Church. I will still have all groups on Wednesday nights. This is the plan for now, but plans can change as we all know. I plan to teach each Sunday school class once a month to give the teachers a break in case they have a vacation planned or are ill. I will be bouncing around to each class on Sunday morning. The following is a list o the Sunday class groups:




Preschool—Kindergarten teachers are Gayle Wright and Julie Slater (in the preschool—kindergarten room downstairs in the Education building).




Elementary class teachers are Dawn Bradley and Jodi Long (in the old Fellowship Hall).




Middle school class—Teachers are Adam Glogau and Beth Brazier (upstairs in the Education building).




High school—Teacher is Beth Lerner (upstairs in the education building)




I am so grateful to have volunteers teachers who are willing to serv the children and youth of the church and thankful for the adults willing to serve as well. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

From the Pastor’s Desk,




Friends, I have sad news and joyful news!




First, the sad news, our neighboring church Lawrenceburg Cumberland Presbyterian Church has made the very difficult decision to close. They have the oldest church building in Lawrenceburg – built in 1851. Unfortunately, membership decline, the cost of building maintenance and utilities have proven to be overwhelming. So many people through the years have discovered the love of Christ in that church, births, marriages, funerals – our prayers are with the congregation during this time of transition. Our doors and hearts are open to them.




Second, the joyful news. Due to their love and appreciation of our organist, Jerry Tipper (who formerly played at the Cumberland Church). The church voted to gift to us their Rogers Pipe Organ, with the desire that it be placed in the Rose Chapel. This is an extraordinarily generous gift to our church family. Your Church Trustees and the Administrative Board have voted to accept the gift; cost of moving and installation will be handled outside of the regular budget. We are working with the Milner Organ Company to set up the move, installation and tuning for the room. No date has been set. Our current organ will be available for donation to a local United Methodist Church, simply passing on the love. Once everything is complete, Jerry would like to have an organ concert in the Rose Chapel.




Please, be in prayer for our friends at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.




Peace, Kent Bailey, Pastor

My family and I are so deeply grateful for the love, prayers, and support you have shared with us as we navigate this journey.


I have stated before that our church utilizes its gracious mercy to lift up so many, and do it so well. We have felt it in the past months and that includes the love and well wishes for my Dad, Lanny Hurst. He, too, is grateful for all that you have done. Each of the cards, the texts, the calls, and well wishes are appreciated tremendously. With much love,


Cissy and Jansen Holt & Family

CARE OF OUR CLC


We would like to remind those who use the CLC to please leave it as you find it. There have been some recent issues such as the emergency exit doors in the CLC being left open (no one is supposed to use these doors unless necessary); also the storage room and mechanical rooms have been left open. Also, we encourage those who use it to please only use items that are in the wire sports basket in the storage room with the table and chairs. We have one team that practices in the facility and they have their own stuff, which they keep together, and would like for those items not to be used or moved by anyone else. Please respect that. We want the CLC to be a good outreach but there are rules to follow. Please help us continue to make the use of the CLC a good outreach ministry. If you are using the CLC and you notice the green trash cans outside are turned upside down, please take the garbage to the dumpster. Thank you for your help with this.






ATTENTION:


The Lydia Circle is once again playing Postman for church members Christmas Card greetings.


Boxes will be set up in the Rose Chapel and by the elevator downstairs in the Sanctuary.


The Lydia Circle will take and deliver cards to members present.


Donations are appreciated for postage saved.

Educational Scholarships for


Nicaraguan Students


Each year your church has sponsored around 200 students in the small village of Amatitan, Nicaragua, as they pursue education and a better way of life. Before your sponsorship very few students finished elementary school and almost none were able to go to secondary school or the university. Because of your support Amatitan has had graduates in all levels of their educations and now there are many students who have received their degrees in nursing , accounting, engineering, education, tourism and others. Your support has changed the lives of countless people. Please remember this fund during the Christmas season. It will be time for the new school year to begin in February, 2023. Please give as you are able. God bless you all for your continued support of this mission and ministry of our church.

EVERYONE WELCOME




***There will be a time of Fellowship in the CLC at 5:15 pm. Please bring finger foods to share. Sponsored by the Lawrence County Ministerial Association. An offering will be taken for the Ministerial Association Community Benevolence fund.




CARE OF OUR CLC


We would like to remind those who use the CLC to please leave it as you find it. There have been some recent issues such as the emergency exit doors in the CLC being left open (no one is supposed to use these doors unless necessary); also the storage room and mechanical rooms have been left open. Also, we encourage those who use it to please only use items that are in the wire sports basket in the storage room with the table and chairs. We have one team that practices in the facility and they have their own stuff, which they keep together, and would like for those items not to be used or moved by anyone else. Please respect that.


We want the CLC to be a good outreach but there are rules to follow. Please help us continue to make the use of the CLC a good outreach ministry.

CROCKETT THEATER PERFORMANCE SERIES


The Crockett Performance & Visual Arts Society is pleased to present the First Baptist Church Sanctuary Choir of Nashville as the second event in our performance series for the 2022/2023 season. Tickets are $25.00 and $35.00. But we would like to offer a discount group price for churches in the Lawrence County area. The price would be $20.00 each for a group of 15 or more.




This choir will be presenting a Christmas program with piano and organ, plus a few additional instruments. They are a very accomplished performance group and will present an outstanding program. Should put us all in the Christmas Spirit.




I hope that some of your members will be interested in attending with this special group rate. If so, please contact me, Cherie Plant, at 279-0422 and I will assist you in getting these tickets. The date is Thursday, December 1, at the Crockett Theatre at 7:00 pm. Just let me know the number of tickets you will need by Friday, November 18. Again, this is A Christmas Show performed by the First Baptist Church Choir of Nashville. It will be an outstanding Christmas event. Hope that some of your members will participate.




Cherie Plant, member of The Crockett Performance & Visual Arts Society.



...Volunteers will meet on Tuesday morning at 9AM., to put up the Chrismon trees and other Chrismon decorations. All volunteers are welcome and appreciated.
