This past Sunday was an exciting day in the life of our church. As we welcomed back many people after summer vacation, we also got a chance to welcome in many new people and families that are making Baku their home for the next season of their lives.
It was a busy morning:
The sound technicians and handy-men have been working hard to put in new speakers and sound system. They installed a new screen for projecting our worship songs and power point. The sermons are now recorded and placed on I-tunes, with the plan of having them linked to the church web-site. There have been a lot of people working hard behind-the-scenes to get this up and running. It is a great improvement.
Our Benevolent Fund offering was taken this morning. This money goes to help those in need in our congregation. A number of people set up clothes and household items to share with the church family. You could shop for free and give money to the benevolent fund if you desired.
When the children were called to the front for their classes, the entire front of the church was packed. We are bursting at the seams with young families and our Sunday School rooms are full of lively chatter and children ready to hear about God’s message of LOVE for them.
We were all invited after the morning service to enjoy a catered lunch in the cafeteria. It was a chance to meet new people and connect with those we haven’t seen in a while.
BIF is a joyful place on Sundays! It is a wonderful Oasis in the week where we can all go and meet together with like-minded people. We are grateful for the opportunity of living in Baku and being a part of God’s great Church.
