Our Church Family Plans for February 2020 

Plans for February 2020 are in full swing! Find ways to be more involved in our church family’s life. Pray for our activities that we may reach people for Jesus. Make this the year you make church more than sitting in a pew on Sunday!

Pastor Search Moving Forward

The Pastor Search Committee are ready to visit other churches to hear some of the promising candidates they are interested in. Tammy Loggins shared their process: Each pulpit committiee member reads all the resumes and watches any presentations sent. They indepedently choose their Top Five. When they meet together, they compare their lists and go from there. She says it’s amazing how many common resumes are in the Top Five lists and in the not appropriate for us lists. We pray God continues to guide their selection process.
 

Men to Cook Sunday Lunch February 9th

The Brotherhood men will host a church wide lunch. They will cook hamburgers and hotdogs, and it will be a great opportunity for church wide fellowship. This will be in place of one of the Sunday morning Brotherhood breakfast fellowships they usually have. SO the ladies can relax and let the men do the work for this one!!

Palm Sunday Play Practice

The children are ready to learn about the real Easter Story in Sunday School and in Children’s Church. We have bought materials on their learning level. At their age, we want them to know the basics of the Easter story and understand it’s so much more than just eggs and the Easter bunny. Then they can practice with understanding. They will present their play, “The Empty Tomb”, on Palm Sunday. So make plans to attend and invite others to come experience this meaningful worship service.

VBS Progress

Egyptian in a chariot
Saturday, February 8th, at 1 PM is our first major Work Day. Every church member is invited to watch a very short video presentation of how our Egypt VBS works. Then we will start making the costumes, decorations, Bible materials, and craft activities for the Marketplace. We will need LOTS of help over the next few months.
 
God is definitely going before in prompting some wonderful people to say YES to being actors in our skits. But not everyone we have in mind has been asked yet. Please pray with our VBS Team that the right person will be chosen for each part, and that they will accept the challenge.
 
The Publicity Flyer and Registration Form are about ready to give out. We are currently “kicking the tires” on our new Online Registration site. Stay tuned for that website address AND be sure to save the dates so you can help us June 14-18 AND so you can let everyone know about our VBS!
 
To improve child safety, we are completely re-doing the way families Check-In and Check-Out. It’s a shame that this is necessary. But sadly, we don’t live in as safe a time for children as what we grew up in.
 

More to Come…

Please bookmark our What’s Going On? menu to keep up with what’s going on from month to month. We will announce new activities as information becomes available. You can always find the sermon videos and comment about current happenings on the church Facebook page.
 
The members of First Baptist Church of Vincent has been involved in the life of our town since before the Civil War. And we pray that our members are looking forward to being involved in the life of our community for many, many years to come. We encourage you to join with us in fulfilling God’s plans for our congregation and our community.
