In August of 2021, during the Annual Associational Meeting, a proposal was made to take up an offering to go toward the debt of the properties and buildings of the Ashe Baptist Association office and Ashe Really Cares on the third Sunday of October for three years. The amount given in 2021-2022 was $ 23,678 and in 2022-2023 was a total of $ 15,053.00. This fiscal year 2023-2024 will be the third year for the offering and we praise the Lord for Him encouraging the hearts of God’s people to give. We are again encouraging churches and individuals to give this year a special contribution on Sunday, October 15th or you are welcome to choose another date to contribute to the debt relief offering this fiscal year. The debt was reduced to $16, 885 as of November 2023. This would free up $1,054.74 a month to go to other resources and remove the burden of debt to ABA. There have been many creative ways mentioned that churches and individuals can do to take part; however, the important point is for all who can to participate in this endeavor. God bless you for doing your part in this important effort to eliminate the financial liability for ABA. May God bless as we continue to reach men, women, and young people with the gospel of Jesus Christ in Ashe County. Sincerely, Budget & and Finance Committee of Ashe Baptist Association. DOM comment: I have the faith that it will be paid off this year!

LOOMS (Ladies with Open Hearts and Open Minds)
will begin the Bible Study, The Battle Plan for Prayer, inspired
by the Kendrick Brothers’ movie War Room.
This study begins January 4, 2024, and we meet each Thursday
from 11:30 - 12:30 at Midway Baptist Church.
PRAYER SHOULD BECOME THE FIRST PLAN OF
ATTACK IN ALL OF LIFE’S BATTLES, NOT
A LAST RESORT.
The Battle Plan for Prayer explains the fundamentals of how
effective prayer works, how it inspires readers toward a closer
relationship with God, and shows how to develop specific
prayer strategies for life.
Come study with other ladies as we begin this 8-sessio
Bible study which includes a workbook and video per
session to engage with God on a deeper level and
discover that nothing is impossible with God; however,
truly knowing our Savior is the greatest reward of all.
Our goal for this study is for everyone to become more
devoted to prayer and to faithfully and effectively wield
the weapon of prayer in the battles and seasons of life.
Facilitators: Linda Blackburn, Jeanne Coward, and Elaine Cox
encourage you to attend.
So we can order ample materials and reserve you a spot, or if
you need further information, please contact
Jeanne at 336-877-0041 or Elaine at 336-877-7934.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON JANUARY 4, 2024!
