OCTOBER IS PASTOR/STAFF APPRECIATION MONTH!!
Please take time this month to let your pastor know you appreciate his ministry with your church! Drop a card....remind him you are praying for him....take him, his wife, and family out to lunch (or invite them over to your home for a meal).....set aside a time on a Sunday morning for the congregation to say "Thank you." Now, it's your turn to figure out how best you/your church can show your pastor your appreciation!! PS....like the headline reads... include your staff as well!!!
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.
