Prayer Breakfast – 7:30 – 9:15 a.m., Saturday, January 14

The Women’s Auxiliary has been in charge of facilitating the Prayer Breakfast.  In addition to the excellent breakfast and the Intercessory Prayers, we will have a presentation by Health Partners around Mental Health, and we will have a Word from Rev. Dr. Ian D. Bethel, Pastor of New Beginnings Baptist Tabernacle.  We are asking for a small donation of $10 per person to support the ministry of the Women’s Auxiliary.  Tickets have been mailed to each church.  If for some reason you didn’t receive any or can’t find them – DON’T FRET – you can make your donation when you arrive.  However, please contact Sylvia Amos at 612-522-7508 or sylviaamos04@gmail.com or Gennett Jones at 763-381-4992 to confirm the number attending.  We are encouraging churches to have at least 10 members from your church participate.

Board Meeting – 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
