School Supply Drive

There is an urgent request through ABCONN by Church World Services. Their latest shipment of School Kits to their partner for the Syrian refugee crisis has seriously depleted their supply.  CWS School Kits give children in impoverished schools, refugee camps, or other difficult settings, some of the basic tools for learning, so it is vitally important that they be replenished as quickly as possible.

We would like to collect items for the kits through August 31stand are planning to assemble the School Kits on September 7th.  Each kit includes these very specific items......

A Note from the Elders...

We all know how important the power of prayer is.  The FBC Email Prayer Chain has been a wonderful way to communicate prayer requests and praises.  We want to ensure that as many people as possible are aware of the requests and praises of our church family, and we are adding everyone that has provided an email address to the prayer chain. If for some reason you do not want to be included in the prayer chain, please contact the FBC Church office.  Thank you so much for being a part of the FBC Prayer Chain.

Also, please remember that the elders would be happy to pray with you after the worship

From the Chaplain of Connecticut Baptist Homes

We are excited to announce A Walk to Remember, a walk and fundraiser to benefit memory care, dementia services, staff education and family support at Connecticut Baptist Homes.  On Friday, August 15, our whole facility will be involved in A Walk to Remember.  Residents, staff members and family members will participate in a walk around our campus, during the hours of 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.  The course will include interactive stops at tents representing particular decades, where walkers can play trivia, listen to music, and remember the era.

Women's Fellowship Book Discussion

Book:  "The Invention of Wings" by Sue Monk Kidd

Date:  Saturday, September 20, 2014

Time: 10 - 11:30 am

Hostess: Denise Carroll  

Discussion Leader:  Cindy Holland-Toftness

We will not be meeting over the summer. We also realize that it is very early to be announcing this, but want to be sure that everyone knows what book to read for the summer. Enjoy your summer, and we hope to see you in September.


Would You Like to Have a Faith Buddy?

We each grow in faith in different ways.  However, we all share a responsibility to support one another in our faith journeys.  Sometimes we grow through life's circumstances, and other times we take a more intentional, goal-setting approach to grow in our faith.  Having a friend or buddy in your spiritual walk can help.  Think instead of having a personal trainer for your physical fitness, you would have a personal trainer for your spiritual growth.

You can select your own buddy on your own or you may ask to be connected to a buddy.

Local Hunger Outreach in Wallingford

Local Hunger Outreach

Come get involved in this exciting outreach opportunity to help our neighbors locally! The Wallingford Housing Authority is looking for local volunteers to work with the Connecticut Food Bank Mobile Pantry Program. Their vision is to provide some much needed assistance to the elderly and disabled who may not be able to travel to local food pantries.  It requires set up and clean up at the Housing Authority distribution location and all training will be done by the CT Food Bank. FBC is planning to provide a full team of eight people needed to operate the distribution.
