Board of Missions
Reminder to all Bd. of Missions members: The May meeting date has been changed. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, May 26.
Again this year, your Mission Committee will be collecting undies and personal care items for the Cameron Community Center in Rochester. So… when you are out shopping remember this project. You can find bargains at one of our dollar stores here in Penn Yan. If traveling further afield, try Wal Mart, Target, or Kmart. Cameron is located in one of the poorer sections of Rochester. You will find a box for your donations at the front of the sanctuary. Let’s see what we can do!
Relay for Life
This year’s Relay for Life will be held on June 6 & 7, at the Penn Yan Firemen’s Field. The relay is an all night walk to raise money to fund cancer research, education and patient services. Anyone interested in being on a team or making a decision is encouraged to do so! For more information, please contact Beth DeLooza at 536-3162 or Pam Scutt at 536-2791.
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.
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.
¨ Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
All that truly matters in the end is that you love.
