June 2018 Newsletter


A Word from the Pastor…

On June 24-29, 2018 we will be conducting our Vacation Bible School.  The theme this year is “Game On” which will be a sports theme.  Please be praying for all our workers as they prepare and lead our VBS.  Also, VBS is one of our greatest outreach events in our community.  We will have many children who will come to our VBS that do not attend our church regularly.  So, VBS is an opportunity to impact children in our community.  If you know of any children in your family, friends or neighborhood, please invite them to our VBS.  You can pick up a flier in the church foyer or print one from a church email or post it on your Facebook page.  Let’s just try to invite as many children as possible.  Remember our VBS starts on Sunday night.  I am praying we will have a great VBS with Family Night on Friday night.

Also, pray for our youth and leaders as they attend Centrifuge Youth Camp June 11-16.  I believe God is going to impact their lives while at camp.  I also thank all of you who have supported the fund raisers that have helped our youth be able to attend.  This church really supports the youth and you are a blessing.

Remember God loves you and so do I.

~Bro. Richard


There will be no Keenagers meetings this summer.  We have taken the summer off.  We will begin meeting again in September.

New Deacons…

The Pastor and Deacons are excited to share with the church that after prayer and seeking the Lord’s direction, two men have agreed to become new deacons of our church.  They are Kevin Shelton and Scott Steiner.  These men will be deacons in training for a few months.  This fall after their time of training the church will ordain them as deacons.

Thank You!

Dear Pastor Newcom and church,

Thank you so much for all the terrific food and generous gifts to support the Community Hope Center’s mission to offer help and hope in Jesus to our friends and neighbors experiencing hardship.  We are grateful for all that you do and appreciate you very much!

Yours in Christ,

Denise from the Community Hope Center




Thank You!

Dear Whitelaw Baptist,

Thank you so much for all of the goodies and care packages that you sent throughout the school year.  I so looked forward to receiving them!  But I thank you so much for the daily prayers for me and my students at EAWR.  It means more than you know.  Have a safe and wonderful summer!

Cari Mueller, Teacher at EAWR

Thank You!

Pastor Newcom and Congregation,

Thank you once again for all the kind gifts and words of encouragement throughout this school year!  It really does help, especially on the challenging days.  My day is immediately brightened when I receive that special token from you. J

Thanks again,

Wendy Ullman, EAWR Teacher
