Associate Pastor Affirmation

A historic day of Celebration and Calling, March 19, 2017 at First Baptist Church, Lexington, NC  USA.  Simply wonderful, inspiring and providential.

The Christian life is not so much a destination as a journey. True worship is found when we experience God’s providence and faithfulness along the way. March 19th is a celebration of praise and joy as we affirm God’s leadership in our search for an Associate Minister. We welcome Meagan Smith as we join hands together in the great quest of building the Kingdom as we worship God, love each other, and serve the world.  Bonus:  It was a M&M Sunday!

Save the Date: TDCWL 2017

Jesus commanded us to love our neighbors.  Touching Davidson County with Love, a community mission activity, was born to help us fulfill this command.  2015 was the tenth year of celebrating TDCWL, and fifteen Davidson County churches joined together last April to conduct a one-day demonstration of love for the needy.  The churches represented a variety of denominations.

The next Touching Davidson County with Love is April 22, 2017.

We would love to have you involved in 2017!

Here is our outline of activity:
–In January all interested churches will select one or more representatives to serve on the TDCWL Steering Committee.
–There will probably be a meeting of the Steering Committee each month until the day of Touching Davidson County with Love.
–For several months, we will be searching for projects that will demonstrate our love for the needy.  Possibly projects include but not limited to building wheelchair ramps, visiting nursing homes, singing at nursing homes, making blankets for abused children, cleaning yards, delivering food and other gifts, making repairs, cleaning up camps to get ready for the summer and many other ideas that you may suggest.

For more information or to sign up to participate, please use our contact us page to get involved in this priceless local ministry.
