email via the Missions page. These letters are a great

letters allow us to better know our missionaries and pray for their respective ministries.
Preacher's Appreciation Service
Each year, our church hosts a "Preacher's Appreciation Service" where we provide
supper for our invited guests. During the service, we honor each preacher and his
wife who are in attendance with special gifts. Our church family considers this

ministry for our Lord who "earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." (Jude 1:3).

in the fellowship annually. Gantt Street Baptist Church hosts the meeting on the
second Monday of October. The public is invited to attend.
Mother's Day Recognition
"Who can find a virtuous woman?
for her price is far above rubies."
Each Mothers' Day, our church honors the women of our church with a special breakfast
(cooked by the men) and with various gifts. Also, our church selects a virtuous woman
and honors her as "Mother of the Year". She is presented a plaque and a gift by
our pastor during the morning service. Also, in the evening service on Mother's
Day, we traditionally have a parent dedication for those blessed of God with new
babies during the past year.
