EBCKIDS ADVENT PARTY - FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3RD - 6:30 PM - EDGE
Parents and children (preschool-5th grade), join us tomorrow evening as we begin the Advent Season with all our friends and families together!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS OFFERING                                                                       
We each have the opportunity to do what those wise men did centuries ago in Bethlehem: to present our best gifts to Him in worship through the Happy Birthday Jesus Offering. Every penny of this Happy Birthday Jesus Offering is directed towards our neighbors and the nations.

This offering is not meant to replace our regular giving of tithes and offerings but is intended to be over and above these regular gifts. It is designated specifically for sharing God’s love with the hungry, hurting, and the needy around us; to extend the gospel through our church family serving in South Asia; to extend our influence into our state by establishing a new church or campus that exalts Christ and preaches the gospel; and to see homes transformed by helping families give the gift of family to boys and girls in the adoption or foster care system.

This special Christmas Offering will be received until December 31. All gifts to Englewood Baptist Church, whether via the regular offering or this special offering, are completely tax-deductible.

For complete details, visit englewoodbaptist.com/hbj. 

NEW ONLINE BOOKSTORE
If you are looking for additional resources related to Pastor Chris’ weekly messages, our new Online Bookstore is a great place to start. Here you can find books by tested authors, children’s bibles, and devotionals. Check out the Online Bookstore under the resource tab at englewoodbaptist.com.

CHRISTMAS BLESSING TREE
Are you looking for a way to bless a family in need this Christmas? Why not participate in this year's Christmas Blessing project at EBC? We have a tree decorated in the lobby with family ornaments that represent a local family and their needs. There are only a few tags remaining on the tree, so if you plan to be a part of this Christmas blessing opportunity, stop by the information table on Sunday in the main lobby.

Our heart’s desire is that we would all give of ourselves and our resources so that others in our community might experience the love of Jesus Christ this Christmas! Our prayer is that while you deliver your gifts, you will most importantly develop new relationships that will make a difference in eternity!

DEVOTIONAL FOR THE NEW YEAR
The 2022 Devotionals, Heaven, Life, and the Resurrection, are available for purchase at $15 each in the church lobby each Wednesday and Sunday. Pastor Chris is one of the contributing authors of this devotional that Englewood offers annually to encourage you in your daily walk and deepen your relationship with God. 

You can skip the line on Sunday by placing your order online at englewoodbaptist.com/devotional. Orders placed online are available for pick up in the church office. 

5K HOMES TRANSFORMED BY THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
If you have questions about what a transformed home looks like, or maybe you are wondering why this is such a big deal in the life of our church and community, please ask one of our pastors, deacons, your Connect Group leader, or contact the church office. We would LOVE to share more about this exciting vision for the Englewood family and our community. 

Are you ready to make your 5k homes commitment? Take a moment this Sunday to drop off your card at any Next Steps Table. Commitment cards may also be submitted electronically at englewoodbaptist.com/5khomes or by texting "5khomes" to 252-888-2227.
