Churchwide Missions Project - CHRISTMAS BACKPACKS.  The Kentucky Baptist Convention, in partnership with Kentucky Woman’s Missionary Union and the North American Mission Board, is collecting 5,000 new backpacks filled to the seams with toys, food and clothing. The age- and gender-specific backpacks will go to children in Kentucky and our sister city Cincinnati. On August 20, backpacks will be available at the Welcome Center for $5.00 along with instructions. October 1 is the deadline for turning in filled backpacks. Contact Karla Brinley for more information.


ELIZA BROADUS OFFERING and WEEK OF PRAYER FOR STATE MISSIONS is September 10-17. Pray how God would lead you to give. As you pray for Kentucky missions, read Isaiah 60:1-5 daily. Pray for insight regarding this passage and its application to Kentucky missions.
