Our next RITI dates are February 21, March 21, April 11 and May 16. If you can help on any of these dates, please let Joanne Prather know.
We are in need of supplies, such as pocket size hand sanitizers, deodorant, gloves, hats, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and sweat shirts and pants. The larger sizes (2x and 3X) go faster. If you would like to donate money, Joanne will do the shopping. We also need people to pre-pare the meals and spend the night. If you can help, please contact Joanne Prather - today!
For 100 years the Lord has been using First Baptist Bemis as a lighthouse in this community. We are excited that He is moving among us in a fresh and powerful way. He is expanding our ministry andmembership while preparing us for an exciting future.
We will consistently seek to grow in our love for the Lord Jesus and to make that love evident to the world around by our worship of the one true God, loving fellowship with each other, growing in our knowledge of Scripture and walking accordingly, ministering to the needs of the ‘body’ of believers both spiritually and physically, and to make Him known by proclaiming the saving gospel of Jesus Christ as the only way for a fulfilled life and home in heaven.
Bro. Manley Hardin has distributed a list of suggested items, including many things needed for building and repairing. Please see Manley about how and where to deliver your donated items.

The beautiful voice of Jane Norvell
has joined the choirs of heaven praising our Lord.
Our hearts are saddened for Bro. John and his family as we learned that Jane was involved in a serious accident, Thusday, February 27. This shocking news will take awhile to seem real, but we trust in God to help us realize that we belong to Him and will one day go to be with Him.
We thank Him for allowing Jane to grace us with her loving, caring personality and her beautiful voice to soothe our hearts.
May God be with us all.
