1.   Children’s Camp Fundraiser – Andrea Morris and the children have put on 2 fundraisers for Children’s Camp and raised approximately $578.77. That is wonderful! Thank you for your support of our children going to camp this summer. I believe we took around 12 children last year and we hope to take a few more this year.

2.   Vacation Bible School Informational Meeting – Wow! Are you excited about VBS or what? There were around 35 who attended the VBS Informational Meeting this past Sunday. If you are signed up to serve or you are interested in serving, please plan to be at the church this Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. in room 209 for planning & organizing. V.B.S. is planned for June 15-20 and the theme this year is “Weird Animals, Where Jesus’ Love is One-of-a-kind”.

3.   Parent & Child Dedication – Sunday, May 11th in the morning worship service. We have 19 children that we will be dedicating this Sunday, so plan to be here for this special service. Don’t forget to pray for the parents of children in our church. They need your prayers and support as they strive to train their children in the ways of God.

4.   Graduate Recognition – Sunday, May 18th in the morning worship service. The Youth Council will be recognizing all of our youth that are graduating from High School. Keep all of them in your prayers!

5.   Church Council Vision Casting – Sunday, May 18th at 5:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. This is for all committee chairs and their members. Chairs, be sure to contact your team members and invite them to this event. Mark your calendar and plan to be in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday evening, May 18th @ 5:30 p.m. for this great opportunity.

6.   Memorial Day Weekend – Don’t forget that all of our Sunday evening activities are being cancelled on Sunday evening, May 25th! Mark your calendars!

7.   Youth Fundraiser for Camp – Pizza Ranch in Liberty on May 29th from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. The youth will be cleaning tables and serving all patrons on this evening. They will be receiving 15% of the proceeds that evening, but you must tell the cashier that you are there for the “Gashland Baptist Church Youth”. Invite friends and other family members to come and show support for our youth on this night.

8.    Missions to Nebraska – If you are interested in going on a mission trip to Nebraska this summer, see someone on the mission’s team. This team is made up of John Guyer, Dawn Kendall, Terry Hensley, Betty Jones & Roxie Pilla. There is really no limit to the number of people that could go on this mission trip, so if you are interested, get on board.
