NOTICES

Building Fund Drive:  We are blessed to have our “Give Thanks Donation” drive again this year to help pay down our Building loan.  A donor family has offered to give a 100% match up to $50,000.  This is for any donation to the Building Fund that ends today, so there’s still time to give and help us make our $50,000 goal. Please make sure you specify the Building Fund on your check or online donation.  

 

JOY Group:  ATTENTION JOY (55+) GROUP!  JOY Group is having a Christmas Lunch and Carol Sing this coming, Saturday, December 10, 12:00-2:00pm in the Fellowship Hall. Cost is $5 per person and a dozen of your favorite Christmas cookies. There is also a signup sheet in the Welcome Center. If you are not yet on the JOY Group email list, please contact one of the committee members: Carol Butterworth, Mary Jagt, Yvonne White or Vonda Williams.

 

2023 Grace Promise:  Please prayerfully consider how your family will participate in supporting FBC's Missions work in 2023 through Grace Promise.  Grace Promise giving, which is separate from our general giving, accounts for all of the funds for our missions work and your anonymous pledges are how we set our budget for the year. Please submit your pledge by December 11th via:  turning in a Grace Promise card, which are available at the offering boxes in the Auditorium or by using the online form on this link: https://tinyurl.com/FBCGracePromise  We are thankful for your generosity and excited to foster strong relationships with the workers we support as we do our part in taking the gospel to the nations.

 

Christmas Praise CD:  The Christmas Praise instrumental CD by Jerry Singer and the Marcums is available for a suggested donation of $10. They make nice Christmas gifts and 100% of the proceeds goes toward the mission fund. Visit the welcome center for more information.

 

FBC Parking:  Recently, efforts were made to improve our parking behind the church (just beyond the  basketball court) so that we could provide more parking space especially for the Sunday AM services. With this completed and for the safety of all of us and protection of our vehicles, we’re asking that we all refrain from parking in unmarked spots, in particular, the following: 1) along the curb beginning from the drive-through portico going south to the end of the building and 2) along the curb on the main driveway, mainly on the right side, as you’re leaving the property.  Thank you for your cooperation and providing for everyone’s safety and well-being. If you have any questions or comments, see Brian Mutter.

 

Rescue the Preborn:  On October 1, we had 2 turn-aways at Old National! Our total is now 101 babies spared from abortion! This is such a special milestone for our church, and a beautiful testimony to God’s kindness, grace, and blessing! Please join us in our ministry to save precious babies from abortion.  We meet at the Old National Gynecology, 6210 Old National Highway in College Park on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 8:30-10:00 and Saturday from 7:00-9:00 am.

 

Food Bank Donations:  With the Holidays coming up, First Baptist Church of Newnan food pantry will need food donations to meet the needs of the community.  Holiday items were added to the list attached to the bags.  Please bring your nonperishable food donations and place them in a bin in the Fellowship Hall.  If everyone gives a small donation, it will be a great help to our community!  Please check to see that food donations are not past their expiration date.

 

Coweta Pregnancy Services:  Please bring your donated baby items for Coweta Pregnancy Services and place them in the bin in the Fellowship Hall.  Help support the moms in our community that choose life!  Even a small donation can make a difference in the lives of these moms and their babies. There is more information about CPS and a list of items at the Welcome Center.  Any donation helps!

 

Men’s Fellowship:  The Men’s Fellowship meet on Tuesday mornings at 7:00 am at the church.  If you have any questions, please contact Pete Lorincz.

 

Visitors: Visitors are invited to go to our Welcome Center after the service and receive a gift. You can fill out a visitor card and give it to someone at the Welcome Center or put it in the offering box.
