Trick or Treat?

For anyone who didn't receive this by email:

If, like me, you dread 31st October here are some suggestions:
• Borrow a Rottweiler for the evening
• Put up a sign – “We burn witches here!”
• Redirect the little darlings to the Manse for mass exorcism.
Seriously, though, you could consider turning the whole ghastly business into a positive experience out of which some good might come. Down at Wesley Owen I found rainbow-coloured erasers with messages printed on such as, “God is love” or “God keeps His promises” (45p), pencils stating “You are special” or “Jesus loves me”, with an accompanying text (25p), and various other bits and bobs with a Christian flavour. These little gifts (much better than sweets) could be wrapped up individually and put in a basket as a “lucky dip”. If that feels like one extravagance too many, you might buy a packet of envelopes, perhaps decorate them with stickers to make them look irresistible and pop into each one a leaflet advertising the Dad’s Pop-in/Contact Messy Church event at the end of November.
If nothing else, they probably won’t bother you next October!

Bromley Baptist Contact List October 2008

I've just sent out the email version of the Bromley Baptist Contact List for October 2008. This is a list of all the friends of Bromley Baptist and you need to be included in the list to receive a copy. If you didn't receive one but would like to, please email me. (Let me know too if you receive it but no longer want it). Hope that makes sense...

A print version should be following along shortly...

Church Family Meeting

There is a Church Family Meeting this coming Sunday (5th October) straight after the morning service with lunch included.

Don't worry if you haven't signed up for lunch for now - there will be extra provided - should be enough for all.

During this meeting we will be looking at a proposal for interim arrangements for support of our youth work.

Please come and also pray for the meeting and discussions.
