Smoke Rise Baptist leadership and staff are serving in special roles this year. Our Minister of Music, Danny Vancil, is assisting with worship planning and leadership for this year’s Assembly. As part of the Assembly planning and preparation, our Minister to Youth and Families, Jeremy Colliver, has served as Chairperson of the Workshop Planning Committee. “What I appreciate about the workshops at CBF General Assembly is their connection to the local church. The workshops are led by local church laity and staff members for local churches. The information presented comes from the local church so you don’t have to wonder how it will play out in your context,” said Colliver. SRBC is blessed to have many other church members who work for the CBF global office in Atlanta. There are up to sixty different workshop sessions to choose from on a range of relevant topics including: community engagement, poverty, immigration, spiritual renewal, human trafficking, navigating contentious questions, forgiveness, creative worship, ministry to all ages, and more.
We would like to see strong Smoke Rise support for the 25th Anniversary Assembly. There is still time to volunteer. To volunteer, please go to http://www.cbf.net and click on the Assembly tab at the top. Then look for the “volunteer with us” link on the right side of the page, which will take you to a volunteer form where you can choose a volunteer opportunity. For questions about volunteering, please contact Rev. Kathy Dobbins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
