The Pray Together, Go Together Prayer Emphasis kicked off January 9, 2021. There is still time to sign up and pray for unsaved people in Caldwell County. There are 250 pockets of lostness in North Carolina. Three of the pockets are in Caldwell County. A pocket of lostness is where a high concentration of unchurched and unsaved people live. This emphasis encourages people to prayer walk or prayer drive through your community on the day of your choice. Please sign up to pray by clicking on the following link to the Baptist State Convention of NC.
The next Ministers Conference will be March 3 at 10:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall of Harris Chapel Baptist Church. The program will be, "Does Your Church Have a Revolving Door?", led by Rev. Dale Fisher. Masks and social distancing are recommended. The church is located at 1444 Cajah Mountain Road in Hudson.
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
Week of Prayer March 7-14

The 2021 theme is "The Mission Moves Forward" and the scripture verse is 1 Corinthians 15:58. The national goal for the offering is $70 million. Every dollar given goes to train and resource thousands of missionaries as they provide ministries and plant churches across the United States, Canada and their territories.
Racing for Missions
The Racing for Missions that was scheduled for March 12 and 13 has been cancelled. This decision was made due to the increase in COVID cases in Caldwell County and the inability to social distance during this event.
The Baptist State Convention of NC has also cancelled the state race that was scheduled for April 17. This decision was made with the safety of the children and adults in mind and in consideration of the many churches that have not resumed their regular activities' schedule.
