Our month starts off with the Baptist State Convention in Greensboro Sunday November 10 to Tuesday November 12 in the Kory Convention Center. On Sunday at 5:00 PM and continuing through Monday evening is the annual “Pastor’s Conference” which has great preaching from some of the best preachers in our convention along with superb worship. It is not just for pastors and if you can go I strongly urge you to do so. We will help you get there and there is no cost for any of the events. You will not regret it if you go!
On Wednesday November 13 at 7:00 PM Ms. Debbie Morton a counselor supervisor with Wake Forest Baptist Health Care Net will be in our fellowship to make a brief presentation and answer questions about our upcoming counseling ministry. Plan to attend and be a part of this discussion.
With the Baptist State Convention, we will be busy during Veteran’s Day but will celebrate our annual veteran’s recognition event on Wednesday November 20th at 7:00 PM. This will be done in conjunction with our monthly fellowship meal. We will do something a bit different this year. The event will begin as we normally do, recognizing the veterans in our church. Afterwards, with the balance of the time we will have a video interview with my son-in-law, SSG Tanner Cardwell who is an army special forces soldier stationed in Florida. I thought it would be interesting for you to hear about some of the challenges of his work as well as its impact on his family. Tanner is representative of tens of thousands of our young men and women who serve our nation every day. Often in civilian communities we are far away from the routine sacrifices these soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coastguardsmen make to do their work. It should be an interesting evening.
On Tuesday November 26 at 7:00 PM, our church will host the annual community Thanksgiving service in our sanctuary at 6:00 PM. This will be followed by a social time afterward. Plan to attend and participate in this annual event.
Rev. James A. Cohn
