GAs Earning Global Hunger Relief Badges All girls in grades 1-6 may join Lori Minter and Mindy Newkirk to prepare jar mixes and nuts on Saturday, December 7, from 9:00-11:00am in the fellowship hall. GAs will also learn about world hunger. Please bring individually sized/packaged food for school students that receive food for the weekend. Ideas would be macaroni & cheese, ravioli, fruit cups, pudding cups.

Lottie Moon International Missions Our week of prayer for international missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering begins today. This year the theme verse is Revelation 7:9: After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.
Through the IMB there are 3,692 missionaries currently on the field. We need to continue to pray for these as they serve throughout the world. Also prayerfully consider giving toward Round Hill’s goal of $3,500.

Operation Christmas Child Musical and Dinner – Sunday, December 8th
Come join us as we celebrate and learn how a simple shoebox gift can share the Gospel with children and their families all around the world. The evening will begin with dinner at 5:00pm. The Church Choir will share Christmas carols during the meal. At 6:00pm the Round Hill Rejoicers, Music Makers and Friends will share the Operation Christmas Child Musical. Please bring a dessert which we will share after the musical.

Lottie Moon Post Office is open for business. We will accept Christmas cards that you would normally mail to families regularly attending Round Hill through Sunday, December 15. All we ask in return is 55 cents per card. Please give your cards and donations to Lori Minter or Mindy Newkirk. If you’d like to help pass out cards, we’d be delighted to have your help. All money raised will support missionaries (through Lottie Moon Christmas Offering).

Adult Potluck & Fellowship All adults are invited to join us on Friday, December 13 at noon in the fellowship hall. Please bring side dishes and desserts to go with fried chicken. We hope to see you there. Contact Katrina Minter or Helen Goerlitz if you have questions.

Tree of Caring Gifts are due next Sunday, December 15.

Revision of Church Constitution & Bylaws Copies of approved changes to Round Hill’s Constitution & By-laws are available in the vestibules. Please see a member of the Revision Committee (Pastor Josh, Jim Frank, Lori Minter, or Tina Sisson) by December 15 if you have new concerns you feel need to be addressed before the books are printed.

Dinner with the Pastor Brooke, the kids, and I are excited to be a part of the Round Hill Baptist Church family and we want to get to know each of you more by simply sharing our lives with one another. Please sign up on the bulletin board outside my office for one of the following dates:  Saturday, February 22, or Saturday, March 28. Our address is on the signup sheet. We’ll kick things off at 6:00 pm. We’re looking forward to this time together!  Pastor Josh


Church Directory We want to get the church directory up-to-date as possible to help Pastor Josh and his family to familiarize themselves with the families in the church. All who are not in the directory are encouraged to add an entry, and those who are in the directory are encouraged to ensure their information is up to date. Directory forms and instructions are in the foyers, or available from the directory committee members.
Church Directory Team: Connie Armentrout, Edna Dobson, Dan Hawley, and Leslie Wood.
A team member will create your entry, and then you can access the directory online at: using your email address.

Weather Cancellations Information
Round Hill’s weather cancellations will be posted and announced on the church website, Facebook page (RHBC), radio station 93.3 (WFLS), and through the deacon phone tree.
