The Annie Armstrong Offering is one of four missions offerings we receive each year. These offerings support international missions (Christmas), North American missions (Easter), Roanoke Valley missions (May), and Virginia missions (September). 100% of your gift to the Annie Armstrong offering supports North American Mission Board missionaries serving in the United States and Canada. Envelopes are in the pew racks.
Books for BookNet
BookNet is a Roanoke Valley Baptist Association program to obtain books for southwest Virginia (Appalachia area), Standing Rock Indian reservation in South Dakota, and local mission projects. We are collecting new and gently-used books for preschool through 7th grade. You will find baskets at each door of the church for your donated books. If you have any questions, Bette Yeatts will be glad to help you.

Holy Week begins with our remembrance of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The children’s choir will lead us in singing Hosanna to the King!

Service at 6:30 p.m.
At our Good Friday observance, we will use images to portray what Jesus suffered for us as the Lamb of God: the cup and the bread, the silver coins, the robe and crown of thorns, the nails, and the shroud that wrapped His body. We’ll end in darkness and silence, remembering His sacrifice for us.

Back Creek Outreach
Don’t forget to save your Box Tops for Education labels for Back Creek. These labels are on many grocery items such as General Mills cereal, Betty Crocker baking mixes, Bisquick mixes, Green Giant vegetables, Progresso soups, Nature Valley bars, Pillsbury biscuits, Lysol cleaners, and Ziploc, Kleenex, and Hefty products. You can put your labels in the cardboard church outside the office.
