The Gift of Giving

A Call for a Special Thanksgiving Offering
Sunday morning, November 27
  • For the general ministry budget:
Let me take this opportunity to say "thank you" from the bottom of my heart for your faithful giving this past year to the general budget. As we approach the Thanksgiving and Christmas holy days, I would like to ask each member to consider a financial gift above your regular giving (tithe) to the budget. This would be an expression of thanks to Our Lord for the great things He is doing here at Myrtle Grove Baptist Church. It would be wonderful to end our year actually meeting the goal of our 2016 church budget. Give as the Lord has enabled you according to your income and I thank you in advance for your obedience in this matter.
December 4-11, 2016
Also, don't forget to set aside money for our annual Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. Our goal this year, as it was last year, is $10,000. If you recall, we surpassed that goal last year and I believe we can do it again! Our missionaries count on the local churches back home to do all they can in support of The Great Commission. Let's not let them down. In addition to your financial gift, PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO PRAY FOR THEM!
With love,
Your Pastor,
Pastor Lentine

November 20th

This Sunday (11-20) please do not walk through any part of the sanctuary.
Our new tile has been/is being put down and it needs time to "cure" without anyone walking on it.

If you are coming from the education building please walk through the Fellowship Hall as you go to the Family Life Center.

Parking over by the Office doors you can enter the "side" door and through the Fellowship Hall.

We should have men in locations to assist folks as needed.

All exterior doors to the sanctuary should be locked.

Thanks for helping.

10 Tips for Family Caregivers

3.   Accept offers of help and suggest specific things people can do to help you.
4.   Learn how to communicate effectively with doctors.
5.   Caregiving is hard work so take respite breaks often.
6.   Watch out for signs of depression and don't delay getting professional help when you need it.
7.   Be open to new technologies that can help you care for your loved one.
8.   Organize medical information so it's up to date and easy to find.
9.   Make sure legal documents are in order.
