Oct 6-7 - Carolina Women Missions Event for Women of North and South Carolinas. This is a Weekend Getaway for all Women of both states. To be held at Caswell Beach. Go to www.wmunc.org to register!
Oct – Nov 10 - COATS for our STATE - This year, we are asking local churches to help us collect good used coats to be given out to our schools and nonprofit agencies that we partner with. Some will even go to the eastern part of North Carolina. Coats need to be separated: 1) men’s; 2) women’s; and 3) children. Make sure they are clean and in good condition. This year the Baptist State Convention is not doing COATS for the City (New York). So, we plan to collect coats as usual and take to areas in our own state that needs our help!
Nov. 6 - Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer – Please mark your calendars and plan to host a Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer or attend one that is closest to you. We will send out notices of all locations of churches hosting on Monday, November 6. Several churches can come together to sponsor a Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer or you can plan to send a bus load to the PMBA location (which will be published soon.) If you need materials, please let us know. We will publish a list of all locations as soon as we know them.
