LABC Missions:  Kay Floyd Memorial Project
Kay Floyd was a local educator and a faithful member of Lexington Avenue Baptist Church and the Mary Martha Sunday School Class.  She passed away in 2006 after a long and difficult battle with cancer.  In her memory, LABC is again sponsoring this mission project to honor Kay and her legacy as a devoted educator and an advocate for children. The Kay Floyd Memorial Project will supply the local chapter of Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Families First and the LABC Preschool with needed supplies.  (These organizations service both Danville and Boyle County students.)  Church members are asked to donate typical school supplies:  pencils, markers, scissors, construction paper, backpacks, etc.  A collection box has been placed in the hallway next to the church office.  Of course, if you prefer, you may make a monetary donation in lieu of purchasing items.
Donations, August 14: Donations for this project will be collected at the doors of the sanctuary at the conclusion of the worship service on August 14.  Please be sure to designate “Kay Floyd Memorial Project” on any donations that are mailed to the church. This drive will conclude on August 15. Thanks for your support of local children in memory of Kay.

Special Guest: Katie Roberts, August 3 & 7

Katie Roberts will share her experiences on Wednesday night, August 3 at 7:00 p.m. and briefly during morning worship on August 7. Katie, Eloise Roberts’ granddaughter, serves in the music department at Black Forest Academy (BFA) in Germany. BFA provides an international Christian education to equip students to influence their world through biblical thought, character, and action.

Children’s July News
Back to School Bash
The summer flies by when your havin’ fun. With all the fun we have had this summer with VBS, book club, camp, and Sunday School it is already time for school to start back. Let’s celebrate!!! We will go to Somer Splash waterpark in Somerset on Saturday July 30th. I will send out a postcard and give more details about cost and times at a later date. Please start collecting school supplies to donate to the Kay Floyd Memorial project. This will be part of your admission and our last mission project for the summer.
Upward Soccer
Upward Sports seeks to provide children with "skills for the sports arena and values for life." While training children with the athletic skills needed to participate at the next level, Upward Sports stresses biblical values—such as leadership, teamwork, integrity and respect—as much as winning. Upward is provided for K-6th grade children. LABC’S children’s ministry is considering having an Upward Soccer team. However, to be able to provide this for our children we will need many volunteers, beginning with a coach. If you are interested please contact Tara or Keith and we can get the ball rolling!!!
Extended Session workers needed!!
We have some gaps in our schedule that need to be filled. Please consider being part of our rotation to help with the children ages 3 -5, or if you are already on rotation and can pick up an extra week please let Gail or Tara know.
