Holland Baptist Church
Brother Chad Brandon’s message was titled “Is Jesus Worth It?,” taken from John 12. By our actions we answer that question.
Following morning worship, a large number of ladies participated in the Ladies Progressive Lunch and Ornament Exchange. We entered the warm, inviting, beautiful homes of Mary Drysdale, Betsy Petty, and Kelli Martin for appetizers, soups, and desserts. At Kelli’s we also enjoyed the ornament exchange. The food was delicious and we appreciate the extra preparation by these ladies to make this a special time of fellowship.
The fish fry scheduled for tonight has been postponed due to the weather. Also the men will not meet for their fellowship breakfast Sunday morning.
Weather permitting, our regular business meeting will take place Sunday at 6 p.m. We will be voting on the budget for 2014. All members are encouraged to attend.
A Christmas program presented by our Wednesday night kids under the direction of Diane Cummings is scheduled for Sunday night, Dec. 22. We have a great group of kids and are looking forward to their presentation of the true meaning of Christmas.
If you’re looking for a church where the Word is preached and the love of God abounds we would love for you to join us at Holland Baptist Church.
