  First Baptist Church Food Pantry


The Refresh Committee is happy to announce that the new format for collecting food for the Agape Center is now in place in the Andrew Fellowship Hall.  This is a visual pantry system in which each shelf will be labeled with the name of the non-perishable item being requested.  Once the shelf is filled with that item they will be given to the Agape Center and a new item will be requested in its place.   It is our hope that the new format will encourage more individuals to provide a blessing to more people in our community.



The Diaconate Board continues the Christmas Cards for Christ program throughout the year.  Please be on the lookout for opportunities to purchase Christmas cards.

Where has the summer gone? As I have said before, our year starts in September. Last year we tried meeting on the first Saturday instead of the first Thursday of each month. We ran into several conflicts so we are trying the second Saturday of most months. Our first meeting will be September 9th at 1:00 PM in the Friendship Center. Todd McCormick, Curator of the Logan County Historical Society, will be our first program. He will tell about their work in the museum in Bellefontaine. Betty Setsor-Prescott will give the devotion. I am finalizing the program for the year. We will still have the Holiday Auction in November and a Christmas program in December. Be on the lookout for future details.

We are still collecting canceled stamps, (1/4” around stamp border) for the Western Association ABW. The money is used to purchase Sunday school materials for children in other countries. There is a basket in The Andrews Fellowship Hall you can put them in. Also, they are collecting prescription bottles (labels off) for Matthew 25 in Cincinnati where they are recycled. They can be put on the coat rack in the back of the sanctuary. Barb and Ken McDonald will take them to Cincinnati. These are some small ways we can help.

Don’t forget to come to our first ABW Meeting on Saturday September 9th at 1:00 PM in the Friendship Center. Discover what plans we have for our New Year!
