Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ
Our Janie Chapman State Mission Offering and week of prayer begins on September 13, 2020. Our church has set a goal of $1,000.00 for this State Mission Offering. In 1902, Janie Chapman was elected the first president of the WMU Auxiliary to South Carolina Baptist Convention. She was the wife of a prominent upstate pastor, J. D. Chapman. In 1937, WMU state missions offering was named after Janie Chapman to honor her for her strong missions leadership. The State Mission offering collected will go to support missionaries serving and missions in the state of South Carolina at such places, like Rock Hill, Charleston, Disaster Relief, Greenville and Easley, Please pray about your giving and most importantly pray for our state missions.
I want to thank everyone who contributed to our Christmas in August School Supply Drive. We were able to provide the following to a local school:
13 Book bags, 2 Binders, 65 folders, 42 composition books, 1 pkg construction paper, 17 large marker packs, 20 reams of notebook paper, 6 thin marker packs, 18 boxes of colored pencils, 2 water bottles, 4 pencil boxes, 45 spiral notes, 2 small spiral notebooks, 39 boxes of crayons, 61 glue containers, 23 boxes of 12 pencils, 3 packages of erasers, 50 pens, 3 index cards, 3 packs of colored pens.
This is how we reach one child at a time for Christ. These supplies will go to children at our local school who are in need. Thank you for caring.
DO NOT FORGET
Christmas Shoe Boxes - Shell Point Baptist will be making Christmas Shoe Boxes again this year. Last year with the glory of God we were able to make over 220 boxes. Can I hear an AMEN! Bonnie Richard will be in charge of the collection of items. If you have any items that you would like to donate for the shoe boxes please bring them to the church. We do have a storage place for these items. Help us make a difference in a child's life.
Please keep checking our website for future events. In Christ Love Jenny Durham. WMU
