Announcements - October 18, 2020
New Deacon Ordination + Commission
This Sunday, October 18th at 10am, we will pray for and set apart our new deacons elected in August. Weather permitting, this ceremony will be held outside, either in the field or parking lot directly behind our Church Office, immediately following the Outdoor Worship Service. For those who join us inside for the 10:30am Indoor Worship Service, please make plans to arrive a bit early to welcome and pray for these men.
Family Fall Festival
The Family Fall Festival for our church family and Awana families will be held on Saturday, October 31st from 2:00-4:00pm. There will be games and activites for your kids similar to our trunk-or-treat events in the past. Costumes are welcome! If you are interested in helping, deocrating a car or parking space for a game or activity, volunteering, donating candy, or just bringing your kids, please use the Sign Up Genius to let us know how you will be joining us that afternoon by this Friday, October 23.
12 Hour Prayer Chain
As we approach the upcoming election and continue to deal with the effects of a worldwide pandemic, we continue to emphasize the importance of prayer, not only for our church family, but our community, our leaders, and our nation. On Friday, October 30, we will host a prayer chain beginning at 6:00am lasting until 6:00pm. A Sign Up Genius will be sent the week of the event for you to sign up for a 15-minute time slot to pray. Prayer points will also be sent as a tool to help guide your time. If you have any questions, please contact David Albert or other members of our Prayer Team.
September Financials Available
The financial reports for September are now available. Additional financial information was sent out in the weekly email. If you have any questions or concerns about the finances of the church, please see Trudi D'Ambrosio, church treasurer.
Operation Christmas Child
The COVID-19 global pandemic has disrupted the lives of millions of people around the world. Yet, there is Good News! Christmas is coming and we will celebrate with great joy the birth of our Savior and Lord! The Operation Christmas Child season will soon be upon us, and Green Level Baptist Church has the opportunity once again to share the hope of the Gospel with boys and girls around the world. Collection Week is November 16-23, and the processing centers will be open November 24-December 19. Although COVID-19 has mandated modifications in collection and processing, both locally and nationally, we know the members at Green Level want to prepare shoebox gifts in some way. There are several ways you can help - prepare of box online (click HERE to go to the GLBC Shoebox webpage), pack a traditional box and bring it to church or donate items for others to pack for you. Click HERE for all of the details!
Worship Service Resources
Each week we will post the order of service and Sunday worship service materials on the website by Sunday morning. We will send out a link each week so you can access the announcements, song lyrics, family ministries resources, the order of service, and more. If you would like to be added to the list who receives those texts, please email Angela.
In-Person Indoor Worship Service
We invite you to join us at 10:30am Sunday mornings! We ask that you arrive no more than 15-minutes prior to the service, enter through our new welcome center and wait to be seated. Our greeting team is ready to welcome you! We also ask that everyone wear a mask per the latest government recommendations. We are spacing families out throughout the sanctuary to maintain a minimum of 6 feet of physical distance. In the event we fill up the sanctuary, we have an overflow room available where you can watch the live service. While it may look and feel a bit different, it is good to be in the House of the Lord with our church family!
Sunday School on Campus
Some of our Sunday School classes are meeting on campus inside and outdoors. Other classes meet virtually. A few classes have taken a hybrid approach offering both. If you are interested in joining one of our Sunday School classes, please reach out to Kenneth Ragland, our Sunday School director for more information.
Family Resources for Worship
Each week resources will be posted to help you teach and worship with your child(ren) at home. Make sure you check these out each Sunday and reach out to Pastor Marshall for extra guidance or if you need additional resources while we are worshipping at home. Click HERE to access the resources.
