Trunk or Treat

The First Baptist Church of Hudson, NH is sponsoring a “Trunk or Treat” night on Friday, October 31*. Members of the church will gather and park their cars in the church parking lot, open their trunks, or the backs of their vehicles, decorate them, and then pass out candy from their trunks to all the little trick or treaters. The goal of this event is to provide a safe, family environment for the children of Hudson.

Suggested themes for trunk decorations include: Luau, Harvest, Sports, Nascar Racing, Sesame Street, Disney, a favorite movie, Western, Camping Out, a Favorite Holiday or Jungle theme. We’ve asked that participants not use scary items, like blood, bats, witches, spiders, monsters, or gore.

This is a great opportunity for the community to get to know our church.

We will be serving free hot dogs, apple cider, hot cocoa and chips. This will be a great chance for people in our neighborhood to linger and talk with our Pastor and members. If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer to help, please get in touch with Deb Lavoie, Jan Russell or Bruce and Terry Mostrom.

Please join in on the fun and don’t forget to invite your family, friends and neighbors!

*The hours of our Trunk or Treat will follow the town of Hudson’s posted trick or treat hours.

The Lord is my rock

‭Psalm‬ ‭18‬:‭2‬ NIV
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

Recycle With A Purpose – Help Someone In Need!

Reminder…

Many, in the FBC family, are aware of a couple in our church who is struggling financially. More specifically he, who attends our Worship Service most Sundays, received a work-related injury several months ago rendering him unable to work.

Being unable to work brings 2 forms of hardship:

  1. Financial (the obvious)
  2. Psychological (desiring, but difficult, to be productive)

We have assisted this couple via the Food Pantry and Helping Hand Fund, which helps with the 1st hardship (financial).

In recently speaking with this gentleman, something new was learned…In his quest to “do what he can” for his family, he saves all his aluminum cans and, when he has a bulk load, brings them to a junk yard who pays him by the pound for these cans.

Light bulb goes off – A form of ministry is born.

Instead of leaving our empty aluminum cans at the curb for pickup by the town, we can give them to someone in need. This will help to address BOTH hardships:

  • Ease a financial burden
  • Provides him something productive to do. That is, he is required to crush the cans (he has a can crusher) to maximize the number of cans he can bring during each trip to the junk yard.

Let’s keep it real simple, for those who would like to contribute…

Simply bring your empty aluminum cans to church on Sunday, in a non-leaking plastic trash bag. Place the bag(s) at the drop spot. The drop spot is underneath the metal stairs, on the side of the church, behind the mailboxes. The person who will benefit from these cans will pick them up each Sunday.

A few notes to reinforce, to ensure we don’t create an unsightly mess.

  • ONLY bring bags of aluminum cans on Sunday
  • Place bags at the drop spot BEFORE Worship Service
  • Do NOT bring bags into the Church
  • Place ONLY in the drop spot, to minimize exposure from the street
  • Please make sure the aluminum cans are in a non-leaking plastic bag

That’s it! Recycle with a Purpose – Help Someone In Need!

For it is by grace you have been saved

‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭8-9‬ NIV
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Church Work Day – November 1

Fall Church Work Day is scheduled for this Saturday, November 1, beginning at 8:00 am.

Coffee, donuts, etc. will be served (for the workers). Feel free to stop by anytime to offer your assistance. There is something for everyone (mostly light duty work and, if anyone wants to do some heavy lifting, we can probably find some of that too :-) ).

Many hands make light work. Not to mention the fun and fellowship with other members and friends of our church.

See you there!

Walk in the light, as he is in the light
