You are invited to a free night of worship tonight, June 5, from 5:30 to 9:00 PM.  Pastor John’s band, Saline, will be featured, with special guest Freedom Calls.  The evening will also have food, spoken word, and fun!  Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a night out at the Bloomsburg Town Park!

Today  is Barnabas Sunday.  Donations of canned fruit may be placed in the basket in the foyer to be delivered to our area food bank.  For monetary donations, make checks out to Danville Area Food Bank. 
Special Training offered:   We invite Sunday School teachers, parents, grand-parents or anyone who works with children to attend our special training on June 12th, 9:15 AM, in the Music Room.   This session will focus on integrating children with special needs, God’s Champions, into our First Baptist family.  We will show excerpts from a DVD called “Surviving to Thriving: Successfully Including the Child with Special Needs”.  This will help us learn successful strategies so we all can feel able and comfortable showing God’s love to His children. 
Praise Band Auditions:  :  Anyone interested in using their music gifts with the Praise Band will need to complete an application and then go through an audition process.  Email Pastor John at to receive the application, the songs for your instrument, and a time slot for your audition on June 16th from 5:00-6:45 pm (20 minute time slots).  If you have any questions, please contact Pastor John.
