First Baptist Church Corsicana is a Relay Collection Center for Navarro County for Operation Christmas Child. Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. Navarro County sister churches and friends are invited to work alongside Samaritan’s  Purse in filling Christmas shoebox gifts to be sent to places that we could never reach. With each shoebox gift a child goes to a 12-week Bible Study class called The Greatest Journey teaching them about the love of God and the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Millions of children, their parents, their grandparents and entire villages have been saved through the shoebox gifts. The goal for Navarro County is 1001 Christmas shoebox gifts. Pre-folded shoeboxes and brochures with details are available for pick-up at the FBC Family Life Center (at southeast corner of N. 15th St. and W. Fifth Ave.) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Lead your family, church, or organization to be a part of this special ministry. Check out details and testimonies at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. Don’t miss out on this blessing. For more information, contact Nanette Bray (Relay Center Coordinator) at (903) 654-7910 or FBC at (903) 354-5439.

Northside Baptist Church “Surviving the Holidays” will begin Nov. 13 on Wednesdays from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Northside Baptist Church Parlor. (Enter the parking lot behind the church in front of the new fellowship hall. Someone will direct you to the Parlor.) If you have suffered a serious loss this past year (divorce, death of a loved one, loss of a job, career, financial loss) this seminar is for you. The truth is, your life is not the same. You might feel like skipping the holidays. This seminar will feature a video geared specifically toward facing the holidays after a loss, a discussion group, and a holiday survival guide with devotions. This Grief Share seminar will help you not only survive the holidays, but help you find strength and healing, as well.

  • 7-23-14 food pantry girl.jpg Local girl raises money for hungry families

    Lacy Rose Goodrich, 9, is a typical Bowie fourth-grader. She likes to watch “Full House,” reruns and “iCarly,” and she has a dog and a cat. She takes gymnastics and dance lessons, and has attended four different Vacation Bible Schools this summer, as well as all the parks and recreation summer programs for kids.
    What’s unusual about Lacy is that she also raised nearly $500 for the food pantry since Easter, which is the equivalent of 3,450 pounds of food for hungry Navarro County residents.
