October 2 – Jacob Called Israel (Gen. 32:22-32)

October 9 – The Scepter Given to Judah (Gen. 35, 38, 49)

October 16 – The Birth of Moses (Exo. 2:1-10)

October 23 – Song of Moses (Deut. 32:3-18)

October 30 – The Call of Gideon (Jud. 6:1-16)

 

Monthly Prayer Walk

We will be conducting our monthly prayer walk on Monday, October 3rd, at 10AM (weather permitting). If you are able, come and walk with us around the neighborhood of the church, praying for the residents, businesses, and services of the community. This is an excellent opportunity to exercise physically and spiritually.

 

Gathering for Prayer and Bible Study

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Eph. 6:18).”  Join Pastor Mike and others in the church family every Wednesday night at 7PM as we pray for the needs of the church and her neighbors. After this time of intercession, we take a “second look” at Sunday’s message and its impact on our lives. Those who would prefer to pray from home can contact the church office and ask to be included in the weekly prayer e-mail (which is sent out on Wednesday afternoons). If you have a need you would like lifted by God’s people, fill out a prayer card and place it in the box in the church foyer any Sunday morning, call the church offices at (617) 825-7832 or e-mail the pastor at calbapt@msn.com – we are here to help.

 

Coming 2 Gather Sunday

We hope that you can remain for a time of conversation (as well as coffee, juice and light refreshments) concluding our service of worship on Sunday, October 9th.  We look forward to this informal interaction with one another and hope that your plans will include your participation. 

 

Free Books

As a gift from the publishers, we have received a number of copies of Praying the Bible by Donald Whitney, Rediscover Church: Why the Body of Christ Is Essential by Collin Hansen and Jonathan Leeman, and Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers by Dane Ortlund. Please feel free to take some reading materials from the table in the foyer.

 

The Ashmont Farmers Market

This community event will be held every Friday afternoon (through October 28th) from 3 to 7 PM on Droser Plaza at Ashmont Station. In 2021, over 250 people interacted with the market vendors each week with many more passers-by, and they are expecting even greater things in 2022. The AFM holds a special place in the heart of our neighborhood by providing families access to fresh food from local vendors. This year they will return to a standard market format. They ask customers to continue to maintain distance and to wear a mask if you’re not vaccinated. This model allows the market to prioritize safety for the community while continuing to be an access point for local, affordable, and nutritious food. All entertainers, placemaking, food demos, community and wellness activities are expected to return later in the season.
