Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, learn to do good; Seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Prime Timers 2022!
Happy New Year Prime Timers! It’s hard to believe we are beginning the 2nd
week of the New Year already! The New Year brings opportunities to refresh and revive activities for our senior adults at Taylorville Baptist! We look forward to doing just that, and we are looking for you to help us “kick-off” the planned activity for January and going forward.
Prime Timers include men and women 55 years of age and older
The January Prime Timer event is scheduled January 25, 2022 at 11:00 AM in the Family Life Center

If you are unable to sign the board, call the church office (205-758-0868) and they will put your name on the list! Please sign up for the January event no later than Sunday, January 23rd.
Mondays @ 9 am
Ladies! Make plans now to join us for a wonderful Bible study led by Eloise and Penny. We will meet every Monday morning at 9am beginningFebruary 7 in the F&F classroom (room 114). Please sign up at the bulletin board!
Books will be available for purchase at $5 each by mid-January. When you are wrestling with doubt and fighting back hopelessness, this study will help you:
1. Quiet the fear that God won't come through, and discover the difference between wishful thinking and Biblical hope.
2. Resist the urge to control the uncontrollable, and find peace in between the problem and the promise.
3. Find the familiar faithfulness of God in His Word when it feels like nothing is normal and everything is falling apart.
10am - meet in the FLC to prepare and assemble gifts. Delivery begins when gifts are ready.
Specific labels will be on each gift with the name of the person, their address and phone number.
The visit with the shut-in member is MORE important to them than the gift!
We encourage you to mark these dates on your calendar and decide now to be a part of this wonderful ministry. Join with us to be a blessing in 2022 to someone who cannot get out of their home or nursing home room!
