Operation Christmas Child
We have received an email to tell us that our 72 Shoe Box gifts, that we prepared before Christmas, have all been distributed in Bosnia. If the figures this year are similar to last years, this will mean that not only 72 children received a wonderful gift but probably more importantly approximately 12 children will come to know Jesus as their saviour. Please remember the work of this charity in prayer, and praise The Lord for the evangelical outreach that it enables the oversea churches to establish. Perhaps next year Weymouth Baptist Church can aim for 100 boxes!
Many thanks to everyone that contributed in any way.
Our next session will be Friday 8th March looking at chapter 9 of the book “The Power of a Praying Parent” by Stormie Omartian.
Future dates: Friday 26th April, Friday 10th May, Friday 14th June, and Friday 12th July from 9.30am -

Treasures needs you!
We are a very busy and exciting outreach to families with under 5’s that regularly has between 20 and 30 families attending each week. Lately our team has lost some members and we desperately need some help.
Could you offer half an hour on a Wednesday morning to set up or clear away equipment? Could you help with preparing refreshments or washing up? Perhaps you enjoy preparing crafts or simply sitting and chatting. Have a chat with Jayne Newton if you can help. (All our volunteers are subject to DBS checks).
WBC Letter Racks
These are in the Welcome Area and are for everyone to use (not just WBC members).
Dates of Church Members’ Meetings for 2019
These will all be Tuesdays at 7.30pm – 30th April, 16th July and 22nd October.
WBC Weekly Offertory Envelopes
Envelopes for BMS and HM
If anyone would like a set of envelopes for 2019 to support our Baptist Missionary Society and Home Mission serving our Churches at home, please speak to Rosemary Croft.
Then you could be just the sort of cool dude or dudess we need to help us storm through the current desperate shortage of AV operators for Sunday morning worship. So (please) pop up to the balcony now (if not sooner) and speak to Murray, Jamie or Rob. Awesome! Thank you and God bless, Murray.
Many thanks to all who provide the flowers for the church week by week. Please remember that YOU are responsible for giving them out at the end of the service. If that is not possible, please contact Jan McKie. It is such a pity for them to be wasted when someone who is ill, shut in or just needs cheering up could be enjoying them.
BMS Birthday Scheme
When you celebrate another year of life, would you consider making a donation to BMS World Mission? Your donation will be used to promote the work of doctors, dentists, etc. and also includes work towards disease prevention and positive health. On your birthday, you will be given a card and an envelope in which to put any donation. For more information, please contact Liz LeQuesne or Rosemary Croft. Thank you.
Stamps for Mission
There is a container on the ‘Hub’ desk for any used postage stamps.
Please take care when removing the stamps from envelopes. Kindly leave a gap around the outside to ensure that the perforations are not damaged. Thank you.
