Due to the strong possibility of shipping delays, Joni must turn in the anniversary dinner food order to the caterer the morning after August 7 in order to guarantee delivery on time.
This isn't like past years when we usually had extra tickets available after the RSVP deadline.
Order online, or in person this week.
Friends,
 
An event celebrating the life, work and ministry of Rev. Dr. John R Claypool will be held September 16th - 18th at one of his home churches, Crescent Hill Baptist. details here.

Pastor Claypool served Second B as co-pastor with Rev. Dr. Clemons from 1984 to 1987. At the event a new book about Claypool will be released including a chapter on Second B written by Pastor Charlie Johnson.

Our church has been invited to participate in the event and help fund the efforts to preserve Dr. Claypool’s work. If you would like to contribute a gift to support Second Baptist’s sponsorship of the event, please send a gift to our finance office or online at click here with Claypool in memo or comments.

I would like to add my personal appreciation for Dr. Claypool and for Second Baptist’s courage to provide space for him to “live and begin again” as he said.
I further thank our own Mike Spann who has helped digitize the history of sermons at Second B on Soundcloud.com and recommend this sermon by Pastor Claypool.
 
Peace of Christ be near to you,
Jake

2b Buddies for Success

New School, New Program,
Awesome New Kids!

 Beginning in August, Second B will be partnering with Roy Roberts Elementary (7901 Avenue P) in a new mentoring program called 2b Buddies for Success!
 We would love to start the new school year off strong with a group of mentors who are ready to meet their new student buddies. There is a great feeling of excitement among the teachers and parents at Roberts Elementary, and they already have several student nominations for the program.
 Through just one hour per week, volunteers at Second B can make a huge difference in the lives of these students!
 If you are willing and interested in joining in our new adventure, please contact Sheryl Gallarneau @ sheryl@secondb.org
 
It's that time of year! 

Second Baptist has access to a generous fund to support individuals studying at a group of Baptist institutions, universities and seminaries. If you would like more information on these funds or would like to submit a request for scholarship please contact Jake@secondb.org
