Several Special Activities This Weekend At Brainerd Baptist

Friday, May 16, 2014

On May Saturday and Sunday after the services at Brainerd Baptist Church, 300 Brookfield Ave., the youth choir will hold a bake sale to raise money for their summer tour.

On Sunday there will be a members meeting at 6 p.m. in the BX Crossing followed by a church-wide baptism celebration at 6:30 p.m. in the gym. If you’re interested in being baptized during this event, bring a change of clothes and a towel and be at the baptism meeting at 5:45 p.m. in BX CrossPointe B & C.

It’s the preschool department’s goal to provide a safe and age-appropriate play area for all the preschoolers while their parents participate in the services.

During church hours on Saturday and Sunday, the preschool department is hosting a baby shower for our Preschoolers in Room 117 (across from the preschool offices). Help us shower the 150 preschoolers and 70 Parent’s Day Out students with new and/or gently used toys and supplies. To find out what items are needed most, the preschool department is registered at Target (First name: Brainerd Baptist; Last Name: Preschool) and online at Amazon. You can find these registries at the following link. For additional information or questions, please contact preschool@brainerdbaptist.org.

On May Saturday and Sunday there will be preview days for anyone interesting in pursuing a theological education in an online format through the church. The degree programs offered are a Certificate in Business as Missions, Masters of Arts in Christian Studies, and a Masters of Divinity. If you feel like God is calling you into ministry but can’t pursue education at a seminary, this opportunity is for you. To learn more, stop by BX CrossPointe C on Saturday at 4 p.m. or Sunday at 10 a.m. in the Conference Room by the Pastor’s Office.
