Jami and the youth kicked off a new school year with a cook out. Thanks to Heather and Carlie Durham for hosting, and for all who cooked, organized, and came out!
The Champagnes threw a pool party for the youth and kids in July. Huge thanks to Josh and Jami for hosting!
The youth and children had a great time on the church wide King's Domion trip the last weekend in July.
In July, the youth took a four-day trip to Shelby, NC, to work with the Baptist Men on Mission. They sorted food, built a ramp, and learned about missions (https://baptistsonmission.org/camps/deep-impact).
11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. Titus 2:11-14
The Baptist Men power-washed the church office and garage on Saturday. Thanks so much for all you do!

Thank you to all of those who played on our church's softball team this season, and to those who supported them. They had a great season but, unfortunately, were not able to repeat as champions. A big Thank You to Caleb Thornton for doing all the leg-work to coordinate the team, and for being an inspiration for everyone to do their best, enjoy the game, and through it all, honor God.
Thanks to Sherwood Lee for photos. Info from e-newsletter.
A group of our GAs and their moms had a great time at Camp Mundo Vista this past weekend, June 29-30.
The Baptist men re-roofed a cabin on Saturday. The cabin belongs to Ron Sloan's cousin and is often used by church groups for retreats.
This year at VBS 2019, the kids took a trip to outer space. It was held May 24 through 26th in the evening. We had between 80 and 100 kids each night and around 20 youth volunteers. Thank you so much to all the volunteers, youth and adults, who helped this year!
VBS is Monday through Wednesday, 5:30 to 8:30. The annual kick-off bicycle parade on Sunday got the week off to a fun start!
