Easter Egg Hunt Candy Collection is still going on through April 2nd. We still need lots of small candy that can fit in a plastic chocolate please as it can melt in the sun. The Candy Drop-off is located in the front lobby.

We also still needs volunteers to help with the egg hunt on Saturday, April 8th at 10:30 am. We have lots of egg stuffers/hiders, so at this point our biggest needs are guides and food team. Let us know how you can help by signing up here or fill out a Volunteer Card located in the lobby.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering continues through the end of March. The offering is intended to assist in home missions, church planting and other ministries. This year, all monies collected will go to continue to revitalization of Welcome Baptist Church in Statesville, NC. You can find missions envelopes in the lobby and Worship Center. Also, online givers, you can select Annie Armstrong as you give as well.

In conjunction with the offering, the Week of Prayer begins on Monday, March 20th. Each day has a specific need of prayer for Welcome Baptist Church. Handouts will be passed out on Sunday morning as you enter. We will also send out a text each day with that day's prayer need.
