THIS WEEK’S ANNOUNCEMENTS
New Member Sunday
Sunday, September 8 will be a special day. It’s an opportunity for those who don’t have a church home, or have been worshipping with us but have never moved your membership, to unite with Haran Baptist. We invite you to prayerfully consider coming forward during the last hymn on September 8 and asking to be a part of our special fellowship. We look forward to working with and serving you here at Haran!
Women on Mission
Women on Mission is for women of all ages. We invite you to come and find out about us on Sunday, September 22 following the worship service. Pray that God will lead you to answer His call to use your gifts and talents to be the hands and feet of Christ in our church, our community and our world.
Back Creek Outreach
Snack Buddies: This program provides snacks during the school day to students who are unable to bring their own. We collect Goldfish, Cheez-its, and animal crackers (no peanut products) throughout the school year. We emphasize Snack Buddies on the first Sunday of each month, but you can bring snacks to the church office any time.
School Supplies: We are collecting the following items to stock the teacher supply closet at Back Creek. Please bring your supplies to the church by August 25.
• Clorox wipes
• Hand sanitizer (large bottles)
• Expo whiteboard markers (any color)
Sing with Us
Choir rehearsal is back in session on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Come join us! This is the best time of year to join the choir as we start new music for the fall as well as our Christmas music. If you’re interested in singing, please see Anna Ruth.
All kids are invited to join us on Wednesday nights this fall! Each week we study a Bible lesson, work on music together, and end with a music game. This fall we’ll be exploring the scripture behind some of our favorite Christmas carols. Haran Kids begins Wednesday, September 4 from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.
A/V Help Needed
We’re looking for more audio/visual operators for our Sunday services. If you’re interested in helping, please see Anna Ruth. We’d be glad for you to sit in on a service and see what’s involved.

Books for BookNet
BookNet is a ministry of the Roanoke Valley Baptist Association. On mission trips, RVBA volunteers have the opportunity to go into schools, read to children, and allow them to pick out books to keep. We are collecting new and gently-used children’s books for preschool through 7th grade. If you have questions, Bette Yeatts would be glad to help you.
