As summer ends and the new school year begins, it's time to begin the "Project Beach Bag". Last year you, the church, provided over 2700 children with enough food for a weekend, and we only started in January. Thank you from the bottom of their stomachs. With the economy in the state it is now, there will be an increase in the number of children that will be hungry for the weekend. It only takes approximately $10 per child to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for the weekend. Our goal last year was 25 students every other week. This year our goal is 30 students every other week. That will be $600 per month. STJBC is up for the challenge.

From the Choir

We are about to start working on our Christmas programs for the Children and Adults. If you are in the 1st ­ 5th grade, see Bill Siverd or Mary Easter. If you are an adult and want to sing in the Christmas Musical, see Kathy Eaton for your book and practice CD. All ages may come and enjoy the fellowship of the music ministry. Watch your bulletin and newsletter for practice times. EVERYONE IS WELCOME.

New Deacons

At our business meeting on 8/3/11, St. John's elected as our new Deacons Bill Sawyer, Bill Siverd and Bob Thomas. Also Shane and Vicky Faircloth along with Tracy Nelson were elected and will be ordained at a very special service on September 4th. Please offer congratulations to these new Deacons as they begin their service for the Lord as Deacons at St. John's Baptist Church. Please keep them and all the Deacons in your prayers. At this time we would also like to thank the Deacons who will be going off active duty for their service to our Lord. They include Cliff Smith, Frank Day, James Bush, and Steve Knight. Also a big "thank you" to Pat Oates who filled in for Steve Knight when he moved to Chowan County.


Our next GriefShare classes will start Tuesday August 23 at 6:00 P.M. If you are interested or know someone who would be interested to attend these classes, please call Joe or Sue Norris @ 757-426-1426. You can email [email protected] or call the church office to register. Please keep this ministry in your prayers as well as those who have lost loved ones and friends. Thanks and may God bless you all.

Hat Sunday

I recently received an e-mail with some interesting information concerning hats. Did you know that in times of great strife (depressions, war, 9-11) fashion becomes fashionable -- it is like an elixir, soothing the hearts and souls of those who strive to feel happy. Happy people buy and make hats. During the great depression, if a woman was down, the answer was, "Go buy a hat; it will lift your spirits." So all of you ladies who have been saying for awhile, "Why don't we have a hat Sunday, and all the ladies wear hats?" now is your chance. Sunday, September 11, is officially declared Hat Sunday. So, make a hat, buy a hat, or borrow a hat -- but please arrive at church with a hat on your head and a smile on your face. Let's be happy people! Mary Norman

"Each person should do as he has decided in his heart ­ not out of regret or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7 With another church year on the horizon and the adoption of a new budget, let us examine God's word (and our hearts), that we will give to support the ministries of St. John's Baptist Church in the manner that our God has instructed us to give, not out of regret or out of necessity, but with a cheerful heart! Wouldn't it be great if everyone gave cheerfully every Sunday!

Media Library Hours

We are open Sunday mornings from 9:00 until 11:00 and 12:00 until 12:30.
