Director of Missions Notes
Dear Friends in Christ,
We have a lot of events coming up in the association I hope you will get marked on your calendars and will keep in your prayers.
March 4th Don Spencer will be at the association office to meet and talk with pastors and churches about their retirement benefits. If you have not made an appointment yet, please be sure to call the office at 270-692-9577 and schedule your time with Don. This is so important and I always look forward to speak with him and see how my funds are doing.
Children’s Ministry Day was canceled for February 16th due to inclement weather. It has been rescheduled for March 9th 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM at CentralBaptistChurch in Lebanon.

The Central Baptist Association Annual Spring Meeting will be held this year on March 25th 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Mt. Freedom Baptist Church. The annual message will be brought to us by Dr. Billy Compton pastor of Muldraugh Hill Baptist Church. Our guest missionary this year will be Monica (Last name cannot be shared). Monica serves God in South Asia. She will be sharing with our children from the association this evening about her work there and will have several items that they will enjoy seeing as she shares with them. Monica will share in the association meeting as well. I promise you will be blessed. Please announce this in your churches and encourage families to attend.
Clear Creek Day will be held in the Central Baptist Association on Sunday April 7th. Five students from Clear Creek will be coming to fill the pulpit on this day of participating churches. Currently right now those who are participating are Woodlawn, Willisburg, and Rockbridge. Two more churches are needed to host these students. Students will arrive on Saturday with an association meal provided for them that evening. They will need to be housed overnight by the host church with breakfast prepared for them. They will be departing immediately following that Sunday morning service to return back to Clear Creek. If your church is interested in participating please contact Bro. Jay Hatfield at 859-336-4402.
