Thank You Notes



*Dear First Baptist Church Family:
Heartfelt thanks to all who participated in this year’s CROP WALK and to those who support us. The congregations of First United Methodist, Westminster Presbyterian and First Baptist were well represented. We also had some Ottawa University students with us. Over $2,000 was raised with 25% going to Hope House. Thanks again as we continue to fight poverty and world hunger.                                         2014 CROP WALK Coordinators
*“Lord, our Lord how majestic is your name throughout the earth!” Psalm 8:1
Thank you for your donation of 16 lbs. of food for our pantry for those in need. Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.                                     God Bless….Hope House

*Dear First Baptist Friends: A big thank you to our wonderful church friends for the cards and great food we received during Doris’ illness. She is doing better. We really appreciate your kindness. Thanks again.                                  Jim & Doris Grogan

*Dear First Baptist Congregation: On behalf of the American Baptist Home Mission Societies we THANK YOU for your continued and unwavering financial support of the America for Christ offering. Your congregation was among the highest level contributors to the 2014 offering; in fact it ranked among the top 250 churches. As we build and strengthen our communities, we bear witness to the gospel of Christ that brings hope and justice. Again, thank you for your generosity.
