We kick off our fall stewardship emphasis, Joyful Generosity, this Sunday, October 28. One of our missional partners, Lesley-Ann Hix Tommey, Ministry Facilitator at Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries in New York City through Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, will share with us in worship about ministry in her Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. FBCDC has been supporting Lesley-Ann for a year now, as a CBF “Encourager Church”.
Sunday, November 18, is “Gratitude Sunday” at First Baptist Church as we give thanks to God for another year of grace. Also in worship that day, we will celebrate an “offering of financial commitments” for the coming year.
Will you take time to pray about your financial participation in what God will do in and through First Baptist Church in the year ahead? And as an expression of your intention, will you please complete a commitment card indicating your financial participation for 2019? Your information will remain confidential—whether you make it online (https://www.firstbaptistdc.org/give) through our website, or turn in a paper commitment card.
(If you make your commitment online, you’ll still receive a card in worship on November 18th to use as a symbol during the “celebration of commitments”.)
