SIGN UP TODAY TO ATTEND FREE CONGREGATIONAL CHANGE EVENT WITH MIKE BONEM MARCH 8, 2014 AT PARCHMENT VALLEY CONFERENCE CENTER
The West Virginia Baptist Convention works constantly to serve you by enabling your church to fulfill its mission. We are embarking on "A Season of Transformation" to help you and your church do the hard work of ministry and growth.
It is common knowledge church attendance and membership in the United States has been declining for a number of years. In fact, some estimate as much as 80% of North American churches are on a plateau or in decline.
We will begin this important time with a special event at Parchment Valley Conference Center from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on March 8, 2014. Mike Bonem, an author and church consultant, from Houston, Texas will be leading us in a study of church transformation based on his book, Leading Congregational Change.
Pastors, deacons and other church leaders are invited to join us for this important time together. As a special incentive we are offering this event at a special price - FREE! That's right. Because we believe it is that important, we are offering this conference at no cost to you or your church. As an additional incentive, a free copy of Mike's book, Leading Congregational Change will be made available to the first 100 registrants.

Scripture Memorization Program
Welcome to week eighteen of Challenge 52!
March seems to be coming in like a lion, wouldn't you say?! Maybe the lamb of milder weather will be coming at the end of the month! Let's hope so!
All of our verses this month come from the gospel of John. This Bible book seeks to make clear the meaning of Jesus Christ to mankind. It has been said to be both the easiest and hardest book in the Bible to understand. John focuses on preserving the Jewish heritage of the past, clarifying the Christian faith of the present times and preparing Christ's followers for missionary responsibilities to the Gentiles in the future. As you memorize each verse, ask yourself the question "How does this make clear Jesus Christ and my relationship to Him?"
Your scripture memorization verse for the week of March 2, 2014 is:
John 6:35, Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty." (NIV)
