           The Giving Tree
I am overflowing with joy at the response of  the people of RBC for the Shelby Baptist  Association Christmas Gift Shop. The total amount of money collected – in addition to the toys collected and the 30 children sponsored – was $3,357!  
 What a wonderful blessing to the families that are  assisted through the SBA Christmas Gift Shop. 100%  of those funds are being given to Church & Community
 Missions of the SBA for use in supplying  the Christmas Gift Shop. Thank you for your kind  generosity in serving those in need in our community this Christmas!  -- Pastor Jeff
