Bible Studies - All are welcome

The Wednesday morning Bible Study (11 AM) is working through II Peter.
The Wednesday evening Bible Study (7 PM) is nearing the end of our study of Galatians...
There are no materials needed, if you don't have a Bible, we'll give you one when you get here.
As always, we'd love to have anyone who wants to learn about God's Word join us regardless of what church you might normally go to, and we certainly want to encourage those who don't go to church, or haven't gone to church in a long time, to join us.

AWANA - Off to early success.

We had our opening kick-off event for Awana last night and ended up with over 30 kids in attendance.  About 1/2 of the kids were new to us, a few from families that have recently begun worshiping with us, but the rest were neighborhood kids who were invited, saw us setting up in the parking lot, and came on over for the food and games.  Many thanks to all the volunteers that helped us get started, and much prayer is needed as we reach out to these kids each Sunday night.

Venango County Children's Roundtable meeting

Today was another Venango County Children's Roundtable meeting; this one was located here at 1st Baptist, we had an amazing 75 in attendance, with new representatives from lots of new churches as well as for the first time from St. Patrick's and two other Catholic organizations, the Boy Scouts, and others that are now a part of the discussion...continue to pray for this process moving forward, that we have the wisdom to utilize God's people in a way that helps those in need both physically and spiritually.
The next Roundtable meeting will be here at 1st Baptist on October 10th, with a meeting for pastors and lay leaders at 8 AM, followed by the regular Roundtable meeting at 9:00-10:30.
If you know of pastors or lay leaders, para-church organizations, or other charitable groups interested in being part of the discussion, spread the word and have them call to RSVP to 432-8061.
