T-SHIRTS FOR Water
The FBC Smithfield Youth still have t-shirts available in an effort to raise awareness and funds about water poverty in Malawi, Africa. In doing so, we hope to be a part of the sustainable solution made possible through “Watering Malawi.” Watering Malawi is boring wells for drinking and watering crops, making fish farms and building bathrooms in schools. COST: $15. Also, you can purchase a Watering Malawi T-shirt and donate it to a child at Camerons Boys camp. This is a way to help two worthwhile causes. Available shirt sizes are Youth Medium thru Adult Extra Large. Please help us sell out and help these causes.
We need help with the following:
- 100 jars of peanut butter for the month of May.
If you can help, please bring your donations to the church office.
Mark your calendar for July 8-12 for Children’s Choir Camp for first thru sixth graders. We will be learning/performing “The Ultimate Question.” Registration forms available soon. Watch the Visitor for more information.

To my First Baptist Church Family, Thank you for remembering me and Clark in thought and prayer during my time of surgery and recovery. You have cared for Clark and I in so many ways – through visits, calls, and bringing meals to us. May the Lord return many blessings to you all for all you have done and continue to do for us. Thank you for continued prayer for complete healing for me and Clark’s continued good health. In Christ, Tami Johnson
The family of Sherri and John Fox would like to thank all of you for your warm cards of Sympathy, kind words expressed in church and prayers on our behalf in the passing of Sherri's brother Jerry Pariseau.
