Operation Christmas Child
Christmas 2021 has just ended but we must get started on our shoeboxes for 2022. These years roll by so swiftly; so we must get started now. We have boxes at the back of church for individuals to take and start packing. We were blessed to have 192 boxes contributed by New Hope Baptist for this great cause in 2021. Our goal is for more but whatever we are able to provide will be our goal for this year.
Judy Montgomery and I will be points of contact for this project. If any questions, comments, or volunteers, please let us know. Thanks in advance for all efforts toward making this year's Operation Christmas Child a big success.

NHBC's For His Glory Food Pantry
For His Glory Food Pantry is collecting seed packets to hand out during our May food giveaway.
You may write a Bible verse on a 3x5 inch index card and attach it to the seed packet if you wish.
Each month For His Glory food pantry distributes food to neighbors in need. On average, the pantry serves around 40 families each distribution. Volunteers are needed to help with packing and distributing boxes as well as setup and teardown on distribution days. Between distribution days, volunteers are needed to take inventory, accept donations, and spread the word. Any bit helps!

This week: Take some time to rest.
This past week's sermon was about rest. There's no need for working when Christ has already paid your debt when He died on the cross bearing our sins (and rose again victorious!). There's no way we could earn such favor. Praise God it's a free gift! Trusting in this fact gives you spiritual rest--complete relief that you have to do nothing more than trust in Jesus and His works.
If you're like most people, however, spiritual rest is only one kind of rest we so desperately need. Most of us need a break; we need physical, mental, and emotional rest, too. We are always running, it feels like, to get from point A to point B in so little time. We're worried about everything under the sun from what's for dinner to how we're going to pay the electric bill to chasing the kids or grandkids down to see what they just put up their nose!
Take a few moments this week to sit and relax. Use this opportunity to talk to God. Bring Him your worries and your cares. He knows every detail but He wants to hear it from you because He loves and cares for you so deeply. Tell Him about your day and thank Him for it. We challenge you to take just 15 minutes each day to sit, relax, and chat with God. Be intentional about this time. I promise you that it won't be wasted.
