    The Gospel of Mark takes a fast-paced approach to telling the story of the life of Jesus Christ. It begins with the prophecy foretold in Isaiah of one who would herald the Savior--John the Baptist, and continues quickly to tell of how Jesus taught His disciples, how He healed the sick, how He calmed the wind and waves, and how He confronted the religious leaders on His way to death on the cross. Mark calls us to be disciples of Jesus Christ. JOY will resume their study of Mark Part 1 on January 8 & will begin Mark, pt. 2 on January 22. - May 7.

    Purpose: To teach principles of inductive Bible study and then guide each person through an inductive study of a book of the Bible. Class includes homework, lecture, group discussion, and listening to audio tapes. Every believer should be able to understand and apply God's Word correctly for themselves! God speaks to us through His Word, and we need to know it in order to know Him better.

    Look for current and available Precepts studies on the Events Tab above.

    "Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers." Psalms 1:1-3

    "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17

    teaching about missions
    praying for and giving to missions
    performing mission activities
    developing spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
    participating in the work of the church and denomination

    Women on Missions Circle groups meet monthly to promote missions study, pray for missions and missionaries, participate in mission projects and fellowship with a small “circle” of friends committed to service. All circles are open to women of all ages. Each meeting generally has a guest speaker, a project and prayer time, all lasting on the average, one and a half hours.

    Kenya Dolls

    Women on Mission Circle Groups would like to thank all of you that joined in to help us with our Build A Doll project for the orphans of Kenya Africa. We completed 197 boy and girl dolls to be handed out to those children that have nothing or very little to call their own. Thank you again and we look forward to working with you when we continue to make these sweet little dolls for Kenya and other mission areas.

    If you have questions, contact: Beth Robertson, Women On Mission Director at


    Toy Chest: The Toy Chest collects donations which are used to create a huge “toy store” open one day only to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary students (college 9 hours, graduate/master’s 6 hours, and doctoral/Ph.D. in full-time status) with children. The toys are sold for a minimum price, allowing these students to provide Christmas gifts to their children during their years of sacrifice and study. The proceeds are then donated to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Volunteers are needed for set-up and workers for the day of the Toy Chest. Contact the church office on volunteering opportunities for this event (847-4477).

    Operation Christmas Child

    In conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child sends a message of hope to children in desperate situations through gift-filled shoeboxes and Christian literature. This program provides an opportunity for all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on mission project that reaches out to suffering children while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ – God’s greatest gift. Bay Leaf Women on Mission supply the empty shoeboxes to the church family, who return them filled with gifts for the children. This project usually takes place over the summer months.
