Missions Week

November 6-12

Every fall at FBC our Missions Committee hosts Missions Week. We set aside this time to focus specifically on missions. During this week we explore what it means to do missions, how we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world, and then put our words into action through service with missions partners. You are never too young or old to be a part of the work being done!
This year our focus during Missions Week will be on our regional mission partner, Delta Hands for Hope. We will have the opportunity throughout the week to hear from their program director and founder, donate supplies, and travel to Shaw to work with DHH. We hope you can join us this week as we strengthen our relationship with Delta Hands for Hope!
Here are the ways YOU can get involved in Missions Week this year:
Tuesday, November 7: Join our Baptist Women as Sally Smith shares her experiences from Ireland. Fellowship and coffee will begin at 10:30 am. At 11 am Sally will present The Views of Ireland. Pack a sandwich and stay for lunch; dessert will be provided.
Wednesday, November 8: We will gather in the Fellowship Hall for a time of fellowship and learning. Dinner, a baked potato bar, will begin at 5 pm. Lane Riley, Program Director at Delta Hands for Hope in Shaw, MS, will lead our evening program beginning at 6 pm. Lane will tell us more about our Mission Partner, Delta Hands for Hope. Please bring paper products (notebook paper, printer paper, card stock, toilet paper, etc.) to help DHH provide for their afterschool program. Dinner will be $7 per person with a $20 max for families. You will need to make a supper reservation either on the insert in your worship guide Nov. 5 or by contacting the church office by 9 am on Monday, November 6.
Saturday, November 11: What better way to strengthen our relationship with Delta Hands for Hope than to be in their space? So, our annual Day of Service will see us traveling to Shaw, MS to work at Delta Hands for Hope! We will meet at the church at 8 am and carpool to DHH. There are a variety of projects for all ages and skill sets. Lunch will be provided. We will return to Memphis at 4 pm.
Sunday, November 12: The Missions Committee is honored to have Rev. Dr. Jason Coker, CBF Mississippi Field Coordinator and leader of Together for Hope, wrap up our Missions Week! Jason, a native of Shaw, MS, founded Delta Hands for Hope and also works with the other rural poverty initiatives supported by CBF’s Together for Hope. He will lead a combined Sunday School Class at 9:45 am in the Fellowship Hall for all classes except preschoolers.  Please bring your favorite breakfast foods to share. Jason will also join us in worship as he brings our message for the day.
