Pulling Together is the theme of the 2016 annual meeting of the Delta Valley Baptist Association.
NEW TIME, NEW LOCATION, NEW SCHEDULE, NEW AGENDA
The annual meeting of the Delta Valley Baptist Association this year is Saturday, October 8, 2016, 9:00 AM – NOON at Lodi Avenue Baptist Church. We are moving to a Saturday morning meeting this year to hopefully involve more of our churches. We also have a multi lingual, multi-congregational choir featuring our language congregations singing Chris Tomlin’s How Great is Our God to involve more people in more churches with associational meetings. We are asking that all churches pre-register before October 1 so we have some idea in advance how many people to expect.
This year we will start at 9 AM with breakout sessions for church leaders (pastor and worship, deacon, small group, evangelism, missions and prayer). I want to urge every church to make these breakouts mandatory for your leaders and have them stay through the entire program. These three hours on a Saturday morning will bless, encourage, inspire and motivate leaders to pull together under the pastor’s leadership to accomplish God’s agenda for your church and for our association of churches.
At this year’s business session, we will discuss some amendments to our constitution and bylaws as well as a new functioning of the executive board. The business session will be brief but very important. Loike the breakout sessions and worship time, the he business session will encourage and motivate.
Block off October 8 in your schedule for this important meeting. If you have something already scheduled on that day, change it. Next month’s Delta Breeze will include greater details.
Blessings to you all.
Dr Bill Campbell, Associational Director of Missions
