Our new sanctuary chairs have been ordered! As approved by the SLT,
when we reached 1/2 of our needed funds, wed be able to place an order for 250 chairs. Thanks to your speedy and awesome generosity, we
have done just that! NOW, we need to finish raising the remainder so
we can close out this debt in short order! Each chair is $61.90 and if
you are able to contribute that amount, or more, (perhaps one for each
family member?), it would certainly be appreciated.
The chairs will be tan in color, have a book rack under each, and a place
to put a communion cup.
It will take about 14 weeks to manufacture the
chairs and fulfill our order. We anticipate an
arrival date sometime the end of August or
near Labor Day.
If you have questions, please contact the
church office, or Wendy Wheeler, Facilities
Steward, 393-3688.

Congratulations, Alumna of the Year!

Our own Rev. Cheryl Harader was one of three recipients to receive the 2016 Central Baptist Seminary Alumnus/a of the Year award. At a service on May 13,
daughter Joanna accepted the award on behalf of her
mother (Pastor Cheryl was in Ireland!) and wrote these
words: ...Cheryl's ministry extends beyond the walls of the
church. For the most recent ABC-USA Biennial, she helped organize the Festival of Young Preachers. She has essays published
in two anthologies: Women at the Well (Judson Press) and
There's a Woman in the Pulpit (Skylight Paths).
Cheryl deeply loves the church and has a particular passion for
encouraging adolescent girls in how they understand themselves as
daughters of God, and for encouraging women who serve in professional Christian ministry. Because of these passions, she has gone
beyond her official ministry duties to support women and push the
broader church. She has served as president of the ABCCR Ministers' Council, and currently volunteers as the ABCCR Adjunct
for Women in Ministry. In this position she serves as a mentor to
women pastors, maintains a blog and Facebook page for American Baptist women in ministry, and staffs a Women in Ministry
booth at the annual meetings.
Other recipients were Rev. Dr. Wayne Paulsen and Rev.
Justin Anderson. Congratulations to all!

Thank you!
Dear First Baptist Church Family,
Thank you for the wonderful reception you gave me
on Sunday, May 22. I was encouraged by your
words of love, joy, and care as I begin a new chapter in
my life. I have enjoyed serving my church family this
year as Adjunct of Childrens Spiritual Formation. I
thank you for that honor and the opportunity. My
new journey of ministry is in Clinical Pastoral Education at St. Lukes hospital in Kansas City. My course
work began May 31 and will end August 10. CPE is a
full-time program designed to train ministers with a
special emphasis in pastoral care. When my summer
studies end, I will begin a year-long residency program
on Sept. 1.
I am also happy to announce that I will continue to
be an active member of First Baptist Church. I am currently commuting to St. Lukes Hospital from Lawrence, so you will continue to see my family and me in
Sunday School and Worship. I look forward to sharing
with you my experiences of CPE! As a member of this
church, I plan to work alongside you in ministry, however, my appointment as an FBC staff member ended
on May 29, so any questions concerning Childrens
Spiritual Formation should be directed to Pastor
Cherylshe will be happy to offer assistance.
Sincerely, Pastor Melissa Lumpkin

Brian Hayes would like to thank all at FBC for their recent
prayers. He has had neck surgery and it will take awhile
