Save Those Pill Bottles
The students at Keuka College and Chaplain Eric Deter are asking for your help. They are collecting medicine pill bottles to send to third world countries. When medicine is dispensed, in most cases the pills are deposited directly into hands. You can help by peeling off your labels, and bringing in your pill bottles (with caps). There is a box in the foyer for collections. Thank You!
Welcome to First Baptist Church of Penn Yan. We are glad you joined us and hope you’ll feel at home, as we celebrate our faith and praise God together.
In the pew in front of you, you will find a “get-to-know-you” card. Please take a moment to fill it out and place it in the offering plate.
We invite you to bring your children to the nursery during the service for a safe and Christian environment so that you may more fully experience Worship.
Following today’s service please come to enjoy coffee, refreshments and fellowship in the Great Room.
