Note from Women's Minister!

Hello JANES!

I just want to say that I am so blessed by the ministry of the BAF women. Kudos to those of you who studied God's Word this season and strengthened your walk with the Teacher. Kudos to those of you who have been involved in Outreach Projects in order to bless our community and grow your faith in the Provider. Way to go Bevy Teams as you carried on the vision to build Christ-centered community and sought to create fellowship with the Shepherd who calls you by name. Kudos to the Admin Team as you worked to keep this ministry organized and running efficiently, all for the glory of the Creator (and Organizer)of the universe. And thanks to all who planned and participated in our fun and meaningful Events that brought all of our JANES together for the sake of friendship. . . in honor of the Friend that sticks closer than a brother. You have inspired us and encouraged us to keep reaching for all that God has destined us to be. I am truly blessed and so very proud to be your servant.

"So in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully." Romans 12:5-8

Fill the Front!

We've realized that our church is at the size now where we need more than just the band leading worship. When our members and committed attendees sit in the front of the auditorium during the worship service, it can generate an enthusiasm and spirit of worship that is infectious for the entire congregation. We would like to invite all of the MOB, JANES and Home Team members to make a concerted effort to "fill up the front" at every service. Please join us starting this weekend.
