Don’t forget the Annual Free Gift Gospel Mission Father/Son Breakfast will be tomorrow morning at The Renaissance Center in room 239 at 10a.m. Come on out for some eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, orange juice and coffee.
The Free Gift Gospel Mission will host a fundraiser lunch on Sunday, June 23rd. The meal will consist of a BBQ sandwich, baked beans, cole slaw, and tea. $6 per plate. Kids 12 and under are free. This lunch will be served immediately after the morning service. Everyone is invited. All proceeds will go to support our youth activity fund. The meal will be held on the church grounds.
This fundraising event is open to the public so feel free to invite as many friends as you like. I believe the Lord will bless the effort. Our church youth activity fund is used to support various things including our annual “Back to School Celebration” in which we give away many school supplies to children who need them, as well as provide inflatables for the younger children to enjoy. The “Back to School Celebration” is coming in August.
The School Supplies Ministry has been a great way for The Free Gift Gospel Mission to partner with parents, families, other teachers, and the community by eliminating affordability as an excuse which hinders children’s educational development. In my experience as an elementary classroom teacher I have learned that when children do not have the things they need, they can lose focus and become overwhelmed with feelings of inadequacy. Parents and families can also fall into this pit. By helping local children with school supplies, this ministry has aided education in the Kingsport area. We have partnered with other teachers by helping them to provide back-packs to students who do not have back-packs. Making these supplies available has helped several teachers to alleviate distractions to their teaching, as well as help save their personal budgets. This ministry is a legitimate and functioning community help.
This is just one example of how the money we raise will be used. God bless you all.
My new book entitled “Here is Water: A Biblical Examination of Baptism” should be available in 2-3 weeks. The book is 112 pages in length and is an excellent resource for anyone interested in learning what the Bible teaches about baptism. Paperback copies will be sold for $6 per copy and ALL proceeds (after publishing fees) will be going to support The Free Gift Gospel Mission. The first shipment will contain 200 copies and I am taking pre-orders. If you are interested in purchasing a copy just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put you down for one. Again, every penny of this 200 book shipment goes to the church not to me (all checks can be made payable to The Free Gift Gospel Mission). Thanks in advance to everyone who will help us raise money by selling this book.
Here are some of the questions that are answered in this book:
- Who are the proper subjects for water baptism?
- Is infant baptism scriptural?
- Must I be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ to be saved?
- What is the proper mode of water baptism (sprinkling, pouring, immersion)?
- What was the significance of John’s baptism?
- What is the “one” baptism mentioned in Ephesians Chapter 4?
- What is the meaning Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, and much more!
If you would like to buy a copy of “Here is Water: A Biblical Examination of Baptism” just let me know. Thanks and God bless.
