ALTA WOODS BAPTIST CHURCH HOMECOMING - AUGUST 5
On August 5 at noon, Alta Woods will celebrate its 67th year Homecoming. For the past several years, this annual event has invited all former members and staff to return to this great old church for a time of reunion and recalling God's many blessings. Each year these gatherings become more important as God continues to call some of our dearest members home to heaven.
Each year we have invited a former staff member to speak or sing or just share some of God's wonderful experiences at AWBC. This year we have invited Mark and Cindy Coon to return. Mark was Minister of Activities for many years and Cindy, the daughter of our beloved Boots and Lucy Rives and blessed with a beautiful voice, was an outstanding soloist.
Come join us for a great time of spiritual inspiration and renewing old friendships. Lunch reservations($5) are necessary to help us know how many to prepare for. Call the church office by August 3 and tell us you will be here.
We look forward to seeing you and all our others dear friends in August. Come help us celebrate Alta Woods Baptist Church's heritage.
MY HOPE WITH BILLY GRAHAM 2014
Last year, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association partnered with churches all over America using the 30-minute program The Cross to share the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ. They saw God answer prayers as He drew over 100,000 people into a personal relationship with His Son. Many people requested that they to do a similar type evangelistic thrust again this year. They believe God wants to continue to reach people with the Gospel through this type of outreach with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Consequently, this November of 2014, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will release a new My Hope with Billy Graham film, which Alta Woods Baptist, you and I can use to share the Gospel in our communities. The 30-minute program, Heaven, will feature powerful, real-life stories and a never-before-released message from Billy Graham. Like last year, Dvd's will be available from BGEA for churches and individuals to show this message to neighbors, friends, and relatives.
Each My Hope outreach begins and ends with prayer, and it’s not too early—or too late—to get started. Won’t you join us?
