We are in the process of collecting coats to take to South Dakota. Terry Gentry, pastor of Cross Timbers Baptist Church is leading in this effort. He has asked each church of Fellowship Baptist Association to provide at least one new coat (avoid black please) to give to folks/students. If you can give more....FANTASTIC!! We will be taking coats, scarves, gloves, mittens, caps and such as well. SLIGHTLY used items will be accepted.
Please have your items to the associational office or Cross Timbers Baptist Church no later than December 1. The items will be delivered on December 5. If you would like to help deliver the coats, please let Terry Gentry know by November 26 so arrangements can be made for transportation.
For more information, you can call Terry Gentry at Cross Timbers Baptist Church, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to Fellowship Baptist Association!
Fellowship Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Convention and Missouri Baptist Convention churches committed to work together in an effort to follow the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission. Our churches are primarily located in Benton, Hickory, and St. Clair counties in the great state of Missouri.....and we hope you'll consider making one of them your church home!!
A seminary professor once asked a question of some international students, "What do you understand the term 'Fellowship' to mean?" There was a moment of silence and one finally said, "Fellows in the same ship?" Now, isn't that even more true than what we usually think of "Fellowship?"! I hope as you think of Fellowship Baptist Association, it's in the light of this unique definition....that we are here together.....serving Christ and one another.

Beginning November 28, the office will be closed on Fridays to conserve a little energy....and heat bill. In the event there is a meeting scheduled in our association and inclement weather has closed any of our school districts, that meeting will be canceled or postponed. The office will be closed December 24 through the end of the year. If you need anything during that time, please call Brother Dave.....he'll do what he can to answer your need!
On Thursday, December 4 at 6:30 PM, we will meet in the back room at Golden Corral in Clinton for a great meal and good time of fellowship. I do not need reservations, but just a reminder, each is responsible for the cost of the meal. I hope you/your spouse/and your staff will plan on joining us there!
Around December 1 of this year, we would like to take another pick-up load of coats to South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation. In order to do this, we need your help!!

But....if you wanted to do more....it would be greatly appreciated! Please avoid black colors as per request from South Dakota. So....pack a box with coats, gloves, sock hats......etc..... Please bring your gifts to the FBA office or to the Cross Timbers Baptist Church NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 1! Thank you for helping with this request!! If you have questions, you can call Brother Terry, the office, or contact by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
