  The Waiting is Over!  Celebrate Recovery Thursday nights from 6:00pm until 8:30pm in Room DC121 Celebrate Recovery is a special community of men’s and women’s groups where you can nd safety and support for dealing with life’s hurts, habits, and hang-ups through a 12-step discipleship and recovery program. For more information,please call 596-8600 x266. In the Missions Kiosk This Weekend Operation Christmas Child Next weekend (Nov 9-10) is the deadline to turn in your shoe boxes. If you havenot picked up your shoe boxes yet, you can pick them up today on your way outof church in the Commons, Fellowship Hallway, or Courtyard. For questions,call Jody at 253-0954. If you have already done a box, would you consider doing one more? You still have a week to get it in! Bring your lled shoe boxesto the BIG BOX in the Commons parking lot NEXT WEEKEND!Waiting time is not wasted time, according to the economy of God! For a year and a half, we have been praying and waitingfor the Lord to bring a new Associate Pastor of Discipleshipto us. After various interviews and much searching, we cantruly say with Isaiah 25:9, “ It will be said in that day, behold this is our God for Whom we have waited that He might save us .” We believe that “ the hand of the Lord rests ” on our church. So, it is with great joy that the Personnel Committeeand I announce that Rev. John David Edie will be presented to our church in view of a call for this position on November 16 and 17. After fruitful times of prayer, numerous insightful interviews by phone and inperson, and extensive checking of wonderful references, we are excited thatJohn David, his wife Rhonda, and their three children, hailing from Springeld,Missouri, will meet together with us on that weekend. You will notice that we arenow calling this position by a name that reects more of the entire ministry focusand not just that of education. He will give overall leadership to the age-groupministries, Bible & Life Groups, Home Groups, Men’s and Women’s Ministries,Missions, Evangelism, and Sports Outreach. Of course, this one man will notseek to accomplish all of this by himself, but will, through God’s wisdom andstrength, supervise the staff and lay directors who work in these areas, withparticular attention given to the Bible groups both on campus and off.While I knew John David as a college student at Texas Tech, I have alsoknown his father for many years. He is a highly respected Associate Pastor of Education who has served in some of our strongest Southern Baptist churches.John David worked under his mentorship for 20 years in numerous capacities,as a pastor of missions, college, recreation, and other areas. Rhonda, hisprecious wife, is also heart-deep in the life and ministry of their church wherehe is currently the lead pastor. He planted this church several years ago inSpringeld, Missouri. However, his desire is not to preach weekly but to be ateam leader. You will love his winsome personality, sense his deep integrity, andbe inspired by his creative innovation. Though he is a young 44 years of age, hehas many years of experience and also has Bible and theological training fromvarious respected schools. He uniquely combines strong administrative giftswith equally strong relational skills.Please join me as we continue praying now for God’s will in this call, for JohnDavid and Rhonda, and for Taylor (age 15), Catherine (age 14), and Austin (age12). They all know the Lord and desire to glorify Him as they obey His will and ChurchwideSenior AdultsMissions Ministry Student Ministry Learn More About First Baptist!Dr. Hayes Wicker, Senior Pastor  Middle School Students - Overload on the Road November 8-9 in Orlando This is an exciting all night event for 6th-8th graders.
