children's vbs aug 11-15
We will spend this week in Vacation Bible School learning what it means to follow Jesus with our whole selves. Campers 4-years-old through 5th grade are welcomed to join us. Please register your camper here so we will know to expect him/her. Check-in will begin each morning at 8:40 AM. Our first event of the day will be our morning celebration at 9 AM. Camp is at no charge and will end each day at 12 Noon. If, however, you would like to purchase a t-shirt for your camper, cost per shirt is $12 by Aug 11. And we need helpers! Sign up to volunteer. See Lin for more info.

Three Nickels

three nickels fund
Three Nickels is a missions fund-raising program to help people living and dying in extreme poverty throughout the world. The yearly goal is to have 100 families or individuals pledge to give at least $1 per week (3 nickels per day). In 2014, our Three Nickels money will be used to provide aid to Syrian refugees, help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and provide small business loans to families in northern Thailand.

with us Sundays. Casual attire is cool. Early Tessera service in Chapel @ 8:45 AM is "contemporary" flavored. 11 AM worship is in the main sanctuary. Open hearts and minds recommended. Sunday School @ 9:45 AM with classes for everyone.

who are we?
We are the only Baptist congregation in Greensboro that is welcoming and affirming of everyone who follows Jesus as Lord. So we accept gay and lesbian Christians as well as straight ones! Being radically inclusive is not our thing—our thing is radically following Jesus, or doing the best we can, and trying not to embarrass Jesus by our following. Some would call us liberal or moderate. We are an inclusive, fun faith community where persons from all walks of life feel comfortable worshiping and working together to bring Christ's love to the world. We are not affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA, Alliance of Baptists and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Read more.
