2 stronger together! Baptist churches have always believed, we are stronger together. This is the reasoning for the Avery Association, the Baptist State Convention, the Southern Baptist Convention, and the Cooperative Program we are Make no mistake, no single church can fulfill the Great Commission all by itself. No single church (no, not even your church!) can support enough missionaries, plant enough churches, conduct enough Vacation Bible Schools, launch enough small groups, hold enough revival services and fufill the Great Commission. We are stronger together! I am grateful that 23 Baptist churches in Avery County recognize this important truth. We are stronger together! By uniting and supporting the Avery Pregnancy and Resource Center, the Pregnancy and Resource Center of Jamaica, our prison chaplaincy ministries, Baptist Campus Ministry of the High Country, and our strategy for equipping churches to make disciples in their communities, we are having a Kingdom impact upon our region. November 2 and 3, Baptist churches across North Carolina will gather together in Greensboro to celebrate what God is doing through our State Convention. We will hear firsthand how Baptist Children s Homes of NC is ministering to the least of these and sharing Chrost s love with broken families. We will hear how Fruitland Baptist Bible College is training the next generation of church leaders. We will hear how our convention is impacting lostness in the most populous cities in our state (Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Raleigh) and winning people to faith in Christ. North Carolina Baptists are stronger together! This month, as we give thanks for all that God has done and all that God is doing, may we never forget that we are stronger together! Thank God for the partnership we share with you and your church, in impacting our world with the gospel of Christ! Garland

Deborah Kuykendall of the North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry, gave a report telling Avery Baptists about the ministry to senior adults and provided resources to churches to reach out to senior citizens in their communities. Garland Honeycutt gave the director of mission report, highlighting the accomplishments of the association this past year in assisting churches to fulfill the Great Commission.

4 A Psalm of Thanksgiving Psalm 111 Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart, In the company of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the LORD; They are studied by all who delight in them. Splendid and majestic is His work; And His righteousness endures forever. He has made His wonders to be remembered; The LORD is gracious and compassionate. He has given food to those who fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever. He has made known to His people the power of His works, In giving them the heritage of the nations. The works of His hands are truth and justice; All His precepts are sure. They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness. He has sent redemption to His people; He has ordained His covenant forever; Holy and awesome is His name. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever. Praise him forever! Happy Thanksgiving from the Avery Baptist Association! Christmas Time Is Coming! It s hard to believe, but the Christmas season is just around the corner! The Avery Baptist Association would like for our churches to let each other know about what special ministries and events are happening in your church! Let us know the date and time for your Christmas program or cantata; tell us what outreach projects your church uses during the holiday season; share with us any Advent or Christmas traditions that help you remember the real reason for this special season. We want to know so we can share them in the December issue of Avery In Action! Send them in today!

6 U.S. Motto Action Committee In God We Trust Displays in Avery County The U.S. Motto Action Committee actively encourages local elected officials across North Carolina to display the National Motto, In God We Trust, on local government buildings. The committee s purpose is to promote America s Christian heritage with the hope that hearts would turn back to Him. In Avery County, In God We Trust will be displayed on the Avery County Courthouse in Newland, as well as the town hall buildings in Newland, Crossnore, and Elk Park. The committee incurs ALL costs to display the U.S. Motto on government buildings. They depend on churches and individuals to meet these needs. The committee is in the process of securing funds for the displays at the town hall buildings of Elk Park and Crossnore. Donations to help with this great cause may be made to the Avery Baptist Association, designating In God We Trust in the memo line of the check. For more information on this project, call Garland at the associational office.

7 Baptist Children s Homes of NC 2015 Annual Thanksgiving Offering There is a mission field all around us! 70% of Baptist Children s Homes residents come to us unchurched and unreached for Christ YOUR CHURCH MAKES HOPE POSSIBLE! When your church participates in the Annual Thanksgiving Offering, hope is shared and miracles happen! You help provide North Carolina children a home that is as caring as any family s. Children, who often come to us abused and neglected, are given regular meals, clean clothes, and loving houseparents to care for their needs. More importantly, you make it possible for Baptist Children s Homes Christian staff to share with them the hope of Jesus!
