03 Jun Weekly Announcements
Worship Care For Preschoolers: Thank you for serving in Worship Care for Preschoolers next Sunday, June 3: Sharon Gagnon, Amber Rogerson, Sue Pearce, Anne Murray, and Jamie Craig.
New Online Giving: Now you can give online even easier. Text the keyword give2wp to 555888 or visit winterparkbaptist.org/give. Not only will giving be easier than ever, but this update will reduce fees for every transaction, allowing your giving to support the mission of the church even further. The previous platform will be discontinued in June. So, give it a try. Thank so much for your support!
Graduating? If you are graduating – high school, college, or grad school – and would like to participate in our graduate recognition on Sunday, June 3, please contact Lance at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations: Donations of empty paper towel rolls are needed for Vacation Bible School. Please place these items in the bin outside Allison’s office. Thanks for helping!
Pray! Bless! Prayer Partners are needed for VBS! A Prayer Partner agrees to pray for one assigned VBS volunteer and to do one nice thing for that person during VBS. How simple is that? Pray and bless! Contact Allison Lairmore to sign up!
Vacation Bible School is June 25 – 29! We will be riding the rapids on our Rolling River Rampage! Online registration is going on NOW for boys and girls who are 5 years old by 8/31/18 through completed 5th grades. Get ready for an action-packed week of fun as we learn about Jesus!
Welcome New Baby! We welcome Draper O’Neal Chalk, son of Brooke and Kyle, who was born on May 18, 2018. Merritt is the big sister.
Arkansas Mission Trip: Do you love helping children have fun? Or maybe you enjoy repairing homes for people in need. Want to try a mission trip but don’t want to fly? Helena, Arkansas is the perfect Mission Trip for you! We have been working with CBF churches in Helena for over 10 years doing VBS and home repairs through Together for Hope. July 13-21. See Frank Blackley or email him for details email@example.com.
Cookbooks Have Arrived! Over the last year, members of our church and members of Macedonia Baptist, a sister congregation in Wilmington, have been submitting the recipes for (and the stories behind) some of their favorite dishes for a cookbook that’s designed to celebrate the special relationship between our two churches. The cookbook, titled Memories, Molasses, and More, was compiled by Peggy Price and edited by Clyde Edgerton, Deborah Brunson, Stephanie Trott, and Diana Clark. Cookbooks are available for purchase in the church office. Beginning August 3, TheatreNOW in Wilmington will host a dinner theatre show based on Memories, Molasses, and More, and later, on August 15, we will share a potluck dinner with our friends from Macedonia.
Do you have a Deacon? At Winter Park, our Deacon Ministry is centered around our small groups; every small group elects a deacon (or deacons if it’s a large group) to care for and represent them. However, not everyone connected to Winter Park is involved in a small group, and we want to make sure those people are cared for and represented, too! If you are not involved in a small group but would like a deacon, please contact the church office and leave your name with Serena, and we will gladly pair you with someone.
Own a Piece of Winter Park and help a Child: We still have a few crosses and plant stands left, they are being sold on a donation basis with a suggested $10 for the crosses and $30 for the plant stands. All funds from the sale will go to support Hope Changes Everything. Stands & crosses are available in the church office and are being sold on a first come first sold basis. Note: There are limited numbers. If you would like to reserve yours, please call Serena in the church office. Make checks payable to Winter Park Baptist Church and be sure to mark it Hope Changes Everything.
