“Fill the Tank” is a statewide emphasis to see believers baptized on Sept. 12 around the world. Emphasizing baptism on a specific day is a great way to encourage new believers to take the next step of obedience and faith while displaying a picture of the gospel to others.
Alverta Bolick Home is a care home located at 80 Baker Avenue in Asheville offering residential services for intellectual and developmentally disabled adults. This home is part of the Baptist Children's Homes of NC that provides ministry for special needs adults.They often have several "handy man" jobs to help repair or replace some things.This would be a great opportunity for small groups or men's ministry groups to assist and partner with them. If your church could help with meeting some of their needs please contact the supervisor, Stefanie Effler at 275-3394 and let them know you are available.
