A look at mission efforts of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is the focus of our program tonight immediately following the weekly Fellowship Supper and a time of prayer. Your tithes and offerings to Southside Baptist Church and to the CBF Offering for Global Missions help support the field personnel and provide necessary resources to carry out these mission efforts. The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship General Assembly will be held in Birmingham this year from June 19-21. During the General Assembly, mission partnerships and new mission and minstry initiatives will be presented. We hope a number of our SSBC members will be able to attend the CBF General Assembly worship service on Wednesday, June 19; transportation from the SSBC to the Civic Center will be provide for those interested (you must be registered first to attend). More details on CBF and on the upcoming General Assembly are planned for our mid-week gathering.
You are also invited and reminded that this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. we will have our last Contemplative/Communion service until July 11, 2019, at which time we will resume the weekly schedule. Join us for a time of prayer, reflection and communion this Thursday.
On Sunday, we have the honor and privilege of participating in ordaining a new deacon to our deacon body. Tom Somers will be ordained after being elected in April to serve a three-year term. An ordination service is a very special service for the one being ordained and the church which ordains them. In this service, the one being called out to serve is affirmed by members of the church through words and pledges of support and affirmation. We look forward to this important event in the life of SSBC.
