Pastoral Care Line launched by NAMB and Focus on the Family

“Pastors struggling through personal or professional issues now have a confidential place to turn, thanks to a new initiative by the North American Mission Board. A Focus on the Family pastor care line is available exclusively for Southern Baptist pastors by calling 844-PASTOR1. The line is completely confidential and is available 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. ET. The line is open to all SBC ministers, chaplains, missionaries and their spouses.” (Source: NAMB)

What is M.E.T. you ask?
 
It's the Missions Evangelism Trailer!
 
Because of faithful giving and cooperation, your association has acquired:
a cargo trailer, an inflatable bounce house, an inflatable Velcro wall with
several (9) Velcro suits, 2 dollies, a snow cone machine,
a leaf blower (to clean the inflatables), a couple coolers, and 2 extension cords.
 
It's literally a rolling, portable block party!
And it's available on a reservation basis to all of our
association churches for a small cleaning/maintenance fee of $75.
Call the Association office to reserve this AMAZING tool
for your children/youth outreach, VBS, block party, etc.
 
There are forms to fill out and turn in with your maintenance fee.

but it can be used for your on or off site needs.
If your church would like to utilize this resource,
please download the form here and bring it to the association office.
