Church Conference December 9, Budget Approval Vote

November 11 is the kick-off where we will reveal the ministry plan for 2019-20. This is a time of vision casting for our congregation as well as a presentation of a two-year ministry plan. It includes an opportunity for us to learn about the plans for 2BC, commit to being involved in those plans and to support them through prayer, service, and finances.

November 25 will be commitment Sunday, an important day for our congregation. You will receive a commitment card at church or in the mail the week before this service. We will make commitments during all three worship services. Lunch will be served after the 11:00 service that day. Menu is:

Baked Potato Soup 
Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken  Tortilla Soup - which is GF Sandwiches - catered (mini-sized) from Jimmie Johns
Cookies  - also catered 
Water/tea /lemonade

December 9 is the Church Conference where the final budget that supports the ministry plan is presented for approval by the congregation. Lunch is also served on this Sunday. Childcare is provided during the meeting. Please pick up your children from worship childcare, feed them lunch, and then return them to the preschool suite for the meeting.

We hope you will be present each of these Sundays and take advantage of the opportunity to dream with us. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SERVICE OF HOPE
November 28 | 6:30 p.m. | Assembly Room

The Stephen Ministers thoughtfully plan and lead this very special annual service. For those of us who have experienced loss in recent months, the overly commercialized holidays can be very painful. The contrast of an idealized holiday with the reality of our deep personal loss is yet another pang of grief for us. This service allows us to gather with others who are experiencing the holiday seasons in some of the same ways we are. We find that we are not alone and that God is present for each of us meeting our deep needs. Please plan to enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack following the service.


 

 

 

 

 

 

CELEBRATING THE SEASON AND CELEBRATING ANN POSEY’S RETIREMENT

December 2 | 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. 

Join us for an exciting kick-off of the Advent season. Children ’s and Student choirs, congregational singing, storytelling time, and a reception will all be part of the evening. This is a very family-friendly event. The reception that follows this event is also a special time of recognition for Ann Posey as she retires at the end of this year. Ann has specifically asked that the children be included in the reception! So, don’t let the word “reception” scare you away—it will be very family friendly! Put it on your calendars now and watch for more information to come.


 

 

 

 

 

 

A PEANUTS CHRISTMAS PARENT’S NIGHT OUT
Friday, December 7 | 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. 
Birth – Fifth Grade Students

Have you started making Christmas plans yet?  Well, the PEANUTS gang has already decided to celebrate with the kiddos here at Second Baptist this year so mark your calendars!

Friday evening, December 7, we are providing a Parent’s Night Out/Christmas Party for all children, birth through fifth grade. From 6:30 – 9:00 pm, parents will have the opportunity to be child-free so they can shop for Christmas, take in a movie with friends, go out to eat, sit in a stupor for a couple of hours…their choice! 

Meanwhile, we will be entertaining children and providing some Christmas cheer. 

PARENTS! This is a gift to you, just ready for you to accept and enjoy! Your only responsibility is to register each child by Wednesday, December 5 so we will be sure to have the workers and supplies we need for every child. If you have any questions about the evening, call or email Gwen at gphillips@2bcliberty.org 

Registration is open on the Hub or by calling the church office at 816-781-2824.

Have I mentioned that it is FREE?  What a deal! Merry Christmas!
