OFFICE ACCOMMODATION FOR FACE THE NATION (FTN)
The Baptist Student Services Centre (Plot 2751, Phala Crescent), which serves as the office of our Face The Nation (FTN) programme, has been put up for sale and all tenants asked to vacate by mid-April 2014. We therefore urgently require office accommodation for FTN. If you are in a position to be of assistance, kindly contact the Chairman of the Executive Committee, Mr. Harry Johnson (71705986), or Chairman of the Board of Elders, Dr. Gbolagade Adekanmbi (71781715).

WOMEN OF HONOUR TRACK (SCHOOL OF DISCIPLESHIP)
It’s Palm Sunday! This evening, we will glean from the life of three women who were with Jesus and ministered to Him before His death. These women were with Jesus and prepared Him for the day of His burial. Mary and the Woman with the alabaster jar were honoured for their act of worship. We will learn from their lives how our worship can be released as a fragrant aroma to the Lord and to all those around us. All ladies are invited.
MEN’S PARLIAMENT (SCHOOL OF DISCIPLESHIP)
This Sunday, 13th April: “DADS & SONS”
All Dads should come with their son(s) to Parliament.
Those whose sons are already out of the nest should bring one from the Church family.
SUNDAY SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMME
There will be supervised activities for the children today in the main Sunday School Hall. Next Sunday there will be no facilities for the children as it will be Easter weekend. Due to the official Sunday School classes being in recess we are requesting for volunteers to help supervise the children in the main Sunday School Hall at both services on 27 April – no teaching required. If you are able to help on Sunday 27th, please call May (71243408), Mary (72532900) or Leya (71629793). Thank you.
