Church Family News:
We extend sympathy to the family of Charles David, Jr. who passed away on June 3, and to Charlie’s good friend Emily Mabe.  Calling hours will be held today, Tuesday, June 8 from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Barkes, Weaver and Glick funeral home on Washington St., with a funeral service at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 9 at FBC (calling from 10 a.m. to service time).

We welcome the following persons who have expressed a desire to join in the membership of First Baptist:

Mrs. Jean Williams, who will join us through her Christian experience.  Jean and her husband Daniel recently relocated to Columbus from Ninevah, IN.  Jean’s father, the late Rev. Everett Hayes, once pastored the Hope Baptist Church, and Jean has fond memories of youth events shared with FBC during those years.  She also served as the church secretary for Rev. Dick Crowley when he served Church of the Lakes.

Mr. William “Frank” McCullough will join us by transfer of his letter from the Parkside Baptist Church. Frank, a widower, is a regular participant with us through our live stream ministry.  A retired chemist by trade, he had a long career with the FDA.
