Last Sunday, we hosted our annual Children’s Hayride. Over forty children and adults enjoyed a fun hayride on a beautiful October afternoon. Afterwards, they played games organized by our youth and enjoyed a hot dog supper. Many thanks to Wayne Wallace and Sara Thompson for organizing the hayride and food, and to Julie Gaines and the youth for coming up with games for our children to play.

On Sunday, November 1, we will celebrate All Saints Sunday in our morning worship service at 11:00 a.m. in which we will remember the members of our congregation who passed away this year.
In addition to that remembrance, we will also acknowledge three members of Farmville Baptist by presenting them with a “Good and Faithful Servant” recognition. This acknowledgement is not a competition, and this year’s recipients are not “more worthy” than others in our congregation. It is simply a way for our church to publicly express our thanks and appreciation to individuals who have made significant and sustained contributions to Farmville Baptist Church
This year, we will recognize Edith Ann Austin, who has served as a Sunday School teacher or department head since 1980. She has also served multiple terms on the Personnel, Constitution and Special Memorial Committees.
We will also recognize Janie Simpson, who has taught Sunday School since 1974, as well as served on the Audit, Personnel and Special Memorial Committees.
Betty Watson will also be recognized for her contributions as the Clerk for 26 years, for teaching Sunday School and being a Teller for over 20 years. Betty has also served on the Constitution, Stewardship, and Pastor Search Committees.
In addition to these three, we will also designate Peggy Cave as a Life Deacon in recognition for her four-term service as a deacon. Peggy sang in the choir for over 30 years and she also served as a volunteer choir director. She has served on the Personnel, Pulpit Supply, Library, Nominating, Music & Worship, Outreach, Preschool and Pastor Search Committees. She currently teaches a Sunday School class and leads the Wednesday night prayer time.
After the service, there will be a celebratory pot-luck luncheon in our Fellowship Hall. All are invited to bring a dish to share as we give thanks to God for our new Life Deacon and our “Good and Faithful Servants”!
