"Doing More Together Than We Can Alone"
Thank you for praying for the Haiti Mission Team. Without your prayers we would not have been able to accomplish what we did. Here is a recap...
* Gave away some 500 pillowcase dresses and 250 pairs of shorts in 3 different churches. (Remainder of dresses and shorts left at missions center for future distribution)
* 3 preachers preached in 3 churches on Sunday morning
* Dedicated property for a new church building
* Same 3 preachers led an afternoon training for pastors and church leaders.
* Prepared 2 meals for orphanage children
* Gave out Gospel tracts
* Blessed pastors with neckties
* Gave $3,000.00 to orphanage. (Will cover 2 months of expenses)
Maybe God would like to use you and your gifts next year in Haiti...

Mission Celebration 2014
Plans are being made for Missions Celebration 2014. Holston Creek Baptist Church will be the host for this event. The date is March 28-30, 2014. On Friday and Saturday evenings all of the participating churches will gather at Holston Creek for a time of encouragement and challenge. Our keynote speaker will be Bill Barker, Directof of Applachian Regional Ministries. Bill travels all of Applachia promoting and supporting mission endeavors under the North American Mission Board.
In addition to the time of worship, there will also be displays from several of our local ministries as well as from the guest missionaries. I pray that you and your church will be willing to be a part of this event. During our previous two events many connections have been made between our churches and individual church members with missionaries from around the world. We have one young couple serving in New York city as a result of the last one!
Our next Pastor's Fellowship will be December 3 at 10:30. Our guest speaker for the day will be Rev. Ron Jackson, founder and president of Parson's Pantry. Parson's Pantry provides finanacial assistance to needy pastors (students, pastors recently dismissed from a church, widower, etc).
We will have lunch together at the end of the meeting. The menu will be Mexican cornbread and pintos.
Michael Bragg, pastors fellowship president, will also share about some upcoming plans that we have for the pastors. I think you will find them interesting and helpful. Come join with your fellow pastors for a great time!
COME JOIN WITH YOUR FELLOW PASTORS!!!
