Friday, May 30, 2014

On Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., the Women on Mission at Brainerd Baptist Church, 300 Brookfield Ave., will meet in Room 209. Steve Rowland will give a report on the New Orleans & Ivory Coast mission trips. The mission project for this month is to bring a small gift bag filled with snacks and sweets to give to the ladies at Next Door—the local branch of an organization that helps women in crisis. Lunch will be served for $5.

On Thursday, June 26, there will be an outing to the Crossville Playhouse to see Annie Get Your Gun.

The cost of the trip is $40 and includes lunch. The bus will leave at 10 a.m. from the bus barn. Money must be turned in to Doris Newton by June 8.

On Saturday, June 14, at 8:30 a.m. in the BX Crossing, the 3rd annual widow’s breakfast will be held. If you are a widow who is connected to our church through membership, attendance, exercising at the BX, watching the TV program, or even by way of a friend, we would like to honor you by serving you breakfast. Please RSVP to the church office at 624-2606.
