RECEPTION FOR RHON & VICKKI CARTER

We will host a reception for Rhon and Vickki Carter on Sunday, May 16, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm in the Perry Fellowship Hall. Rhon recently announced that he will be taking a role with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board, so he will relinquish his role as our Worship Pastor. We are saddened to see him and Vickki leave Statesboro, but we are excited to launch him into this new phase of ministry. Whether you come to the reception or find another way to connect with him, I trust you will express your appreciation to Rhon for the work he has done among our congregation over the past seven years.

 

PARKING LOT FEASIBILITY STUDY

At the last Church Conference, our members authorized our Trustees to conduct a feasibility study of upgrading the parking lot alongside Woodrow Street. Their study will examine the scope, construction details, and financial items related to this project. Any recommendation they make will be brought back to a subsequent Church Conference meeting for church approval. I appreciate the willingness of our Trustees to lead in this study, and I look forward to hearing their recommendations.

 

KEITH HAGAN PREACHING

I am away from Statesboro this first weekend of May with my family, and I appreciate Keith Hagan, our administrative pastor, preaching for me. Keith touches so many areas of our church.  His excellent work on our staff team makes our church stronger and better. Please encourage him and thank him for his faithful ministry and service, and I believe you will be encouraged by his message this weekend.

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

Christians from across our community will gather this Thursday, May 6, at 12:00 noon, on the Bulloch County Courthouse lawn for the National Day of Prayer. Given the landscape of our country during these days, we as believers need to unite our hearts in prayer and seek God’s heart like never before. I will be attending the event this Thursday, and I encourage you to make time in your schedule for this 45-minute gathering as well.  Additionally, members from various churches will be reading through the New Testament this Thursday and Friday on the Courthouse lawn as part of the “Public Reading of God’s Word” Campaign, and you are invited to share in this special event as well.
