Seeking and Sharing
 the Love of Jesus!
Show me Your ways, 
teach me Your paths!
Lead me in Your truth, and teach me: 
for You are the God 
of my salvation;
On You I wait
all the day.
Psalms 25:4-5

Discipleship is not a class,
a degree you can earn, a quick process,
a seminar, a 12 week Bible Study,
reserved for super Christians, a program,
or a 40 day home group.
Discipleship is not hard, a quick fix,
or an option for blood bought born again 
followers of Christ.
Discipleship is not a lot of things
but it is intentionally equipping believers 
with the Word of God 
through accountable relationships 
empowered by the Holy Spirit
in order to replicate faithful
followers of Christ.
The result of biblical discipleship 
is bearing fruit for Christ.

 John 15:8
By this my Father is glorified,
that you bear much fruit and
so prove to be my disciples.

D-Groups !!!
We have several people who meet with small groups
 to specifically equip them with the Word through the power of
the Holy Spirit as a way of making disciples who make disciples.
If you would like to be discipled
as Peter, James, and John were discipled by Christ, 
please call the office (423-775-0255) and
speak with Anthony McCully, Minister of Education/Youth.
We would love for you to join in !!!

Mission Spotlight:  

Operation Christmas Child

Again this year the Shepherds for Christ Sunday School class will sponsor Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child and First Baptist will be a collection site.  We have had great response to this in the past and we want to encourage everyone to get involved this year.  It's easy to pack a shoebox full of small gifts that a child will enjoy.  (Brochures are available in the foyers.)

Bring packed shoeboxes to the Welcome Center foyer

before Nov. 22, 2015.

Wednesday, December 9th we will be sorting shoeboxes in Atlanta.


 If you have questions, please see Bennie Aikman, Tom Hudlow or any member of the Shepherds for Christ class.

How to pack your shoebox :

1   Shoebox

Use an empty cardboard or plastic box (average size).

You can wrap the box and lid separately, but wrapping is not required.

2   Boy or Girl                                                                                      Decide whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, 

and the age category:   2-4;   5-9;  or   10-14.

 3   Fill with Gifts                                                                                              Fill the box with a variety of quality gifts 

that will bring delight to a child.  

Suggestions:  doll,  stuffed  animal,  cars,  musical instruments,  puzzles,  jump ropes,  pencils,  pens,  crayons,  notebooks, 

coloring books,  toothbrushes,  bar soap,  washcloths,  combs, 

socks, hats, t-shirts,  flip-flops,  hair bands,  sunglasses,  etc

4   Include $7 and a Shipping label 

A donation of $7 per box is critical to transport your gift, and 

deliver it into the hands of a child in need.

5   Pray 

Ask God to use your gifts to show His love 

to the child who will receive your shoebox.

6   Drop off 

Place a rubber band around each shoebox and bring it to the Welcome Center foyer before Nov. 22, 2015.  


Mission Spotlight:

Because of who He is

  Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions

"Why should we not ... do something that will prove that we are really in earnest in claiming to be followers of him who, though he was rich, for our sake became poor?

Lottie Moon, Sept. 15, 1887, Tungchow

Why should we give?

First and foremost, we give because God deserves the worship of all people.  And we who are redeemed and made new in Christ  

are compelled to proclaim the gospel,

the only hope for the billions who have never heard of Jesus.

We do this in partnership with International Mission Board (IMB) 

as we send missionaries from our churches to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and 

places for the glory of God. 

In this partnership, Southern Baptists provide the funding to support these missionaries and their ministries.  

Your giving enables missionaries to be sent to multiply churches among unreached peoples and places FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
