We continue to help our friends in Robeson County recover from Hurricane Matthew.  At this time, at the request of First Baptist Church in Lumberton, we are collecting gift cards which FBC Lumberton will distribute as needed to the people of Lumberton.  Please, only gift cards in small denominations ($5, $10, and $15) are needed.  You may purchase gift cards to the following merchants:  Exxon or Shell, Food Lion, Lowes Foods, Walgreen's, CVS, or McDonald's.  Lisa Corbett in the church office will be collecting the gift cards through Monday, October 31, and will arrange for their delivery to FBC Lumberton.  You may also send a check to North Carolina Baptist Men, PO Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512.  Designate "Hurricane Matthew Relief" on the memo line.  Thank you for your generous support!

Trunk or Treat 103016
Sunday, October 30 - 4:00-6:00 PM
We will join with our neighbors from Brownson Memorial Presbyterian Church for an evening of not-so-scary fun, complete with a hot dog supper!  Preschoolers and children are invited to dress up in a non-scary costume, and trunk or treat!  We need lots of grown-ups to decorate their car trunks and give out treats.  Contact Brenda in the church office at (910) 692-8750 or bhafer@fbcsp.org to volunteer to decorate your trunk.  Awards will be given to the best trunks in both the family and youth categories.  We also need donations of individually wrapped candy which may be dropped off in the church office.
