Upcoming Events 

Compass: Finding Your Way at First Baptist
Sundays, October 26 • 9:45 a.m. • Conference Dining Room
If you are new to our church family, or if you are interested in getting more deeply involved in our mission and ministry, please join the ministers for this time of fellowship and conversation about our faith tradition, our worship life, and the many ways to be involved.

CenterPeace for Adults • Wednesdays • 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Chapel Bible Study • Crouch Chapel • Led by Guy Sayles
Treasure in Clay: The Church and the Presence of Jesus
Join Guy Sayles for reflections on how New Testament images of the church shape our understanding of how the community of faith, even with its human flaws, makes the presence of Jesus known in the world.

Modern Sacred Family • Sherman Center
Join us as we explore our hopes for children and youth ministry; traditions, ceremonies, and spiritual practices for many of life’s stressful and faith-filled moments. On October 29, we will hear from Brian Foreman who will talk with us about parenting in the age of social media.

Managing Grief in Our Community of Faith • Sherman Center
Grief and loss are difficult subjects to talk about, yet in the past year, many of us have been faced with the pain caused by the death of a friend or family member. Leah Brown and Eddie Morgan will facilitate this series on grief.

Fall Family Festival Needs
Candy donations are needed for the Fall Family Festival. Please bring individually wrapped candy to the Connection Desk in the Atrium. Volunteers are also needed to bag candy. Please call Gwen Rotan at 505.2519 or Virginia Cobb at 253.7595 to volunteer. We also need 40-50 homemade cakes for the cake walk. Contact Lucile Geter at 713.0818 to volunteer.

Clothes Closet
Thank you for your generosity in sharing your clothes with the church clothes closet. Now we need fall and winter clothes and shoes. Please bring only clean clothing items; jackets, underwear, and shoes are the greatest need. We are especially in need of children’s and youth coats. Since our space is limited, please, no more summer things. Thanks!
