Get more information from Mr. Tim or David Perkins, or just sign up at the connector wall. THANK YOU very much for the scholarship funds to apply to my college tuition at Piedmont Baptist College. I’m so thankful to be part of a church family who wants to help me pursue my desire to work in full-time Christian service. Thanks to all those who have influenced me to put God first in my life and share the gospel of Jesus with others. I hope to follow God’s calling to become a pastor and work in youth/children’s ministries. Thank you again for your prayers, support and love during the last fifteen years here at Triad Baptist Church. God Bless, Aaron Eaton THANK YOU so much for being a part of what God is doing in our life right now. Your gift was overwhelming and a direct answer to prayer. It was evidence to the fact that our heavenly Father is so faithful and knows exactly what we need. His provision is perfectly timed so that we will not be hindered in our ever growing knowledge of Him. We are so grateful for the body of Christ that has surrounded us in prayer for church. We have been so very encouraged. In His faithful & loving hands, Zeke & Meagan Magill THANK YOU SO MUCH for your prayers and thoughts and the beautiful flower arrangement while I was in the hospital. Thanks also for the visits and phone calls. We love Triad. Al & Lillian Chafin
CPR “FRIENDS & FAMILY” CLASS: Our next class is scheduled for next month: Saturday, October 24 from 9:00 AM - NOON.

WE NEED PEOPLE TO HELP DISTRIBUTE TICKETS, for our 4th Annual Living Christmas Tree, beginning October 11, in the lobby and the connector areas. Times to distribute tickets: SUN mornings SUN nights WED nights 9:45-10:00 AM 5:30-6:00 PM 6:30-7:00 PM 11:00-11:15 AM 7:00-7:30 PM 8:00-8:30 PM 12:15-12:45 PM If you would like to help please sign the sheet on the connector wall or contact Scott Compton at the church office: 996-7573 or email@example.com. SHOEBOXES: The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share to Good News of Jesus Christ. The power of a simple shoe box gift can be far-reaching, blessing both the child who receives a box and the person who prepares and fills it. There are many stories about how God is using Operation Christmas Child and the follow-up Bible lessons to touch the lives of children, their families, and entire communities. Through these simple gifts, the message of God’s love is being shared around the world, and many lives have been impacted for eternity. Read some of these amazing stories at www.samaritanspurse.org Our Dedication Sunday for the Shoebox project is November 15. Please prayerfully consider filling a shoebox.

We welcome to our church today all of the missionaries who will be representing lands and locations from all over the world. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know each of them. This conference is designed to broaden our focus on deep spiritual needs from places we rarely give thought to. We hope to sense the burden of our missionaries and their desire to get the gospel to lost people before it is eternally too late. What a thrill to be a part of this endeavor! Triad Baptist’s mission budget and strong giving record demonstrate a firm commitment to our vision to reach out with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please make every effort to ask God to speak to your heart today.

Welcome to Triad Baptist Church

We strive to point lives toward Christ through proclaiming God’s timeless truths and their application to everyday problems, equipping believers for dynamic service and reaching others for Christ. As indicated by our compass, there are many directions of choice to follow. Whether you are dealing with the loss of a job, family conflict or soul-searching for the emptiness of your spiritual needs, life can often seem to have no clear direction. Yet, even amid the pain and uncertainties of life, Jesus Christ remains THE Way: the one who alone can mend broken lives and point lives to a future filled with joy and promise. At Triad Baptist Church, pointing lives to Christ is at the center of everything we do. Located within the heart of Kernersville, Triad Baptist Church began with a vision. Within the vision, our church family is now more than 1,000 strong. In pointing lives toward Christ, we are reaching people throughout the Piedmont area and in more than 23 countries abroad. Biblically sound in our belief, our church stands not of buildings, but rather of a solid faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Those who come to know us say we are “Christ-centered, caring, committed, loving and a great place for families and children.” We welcome you to come and join the excitement of a church and people that are making a difference. Please fill out the information to the right and drop it in the offering plate so we have a record of your visit.

Response to today’s message
I realize that God loves me and desires a personal relationship with me … I realize that because of my sin, I do not deserve eternal life and cannot earn my own salvation … I believe that Jesus came to pay the penalty for my sin and the sins of the world and by faith I can accept the gift of life … I therefore respond to God’s invitation today: Having accepted Christ at a previous time, I rededicate my life to serving Him. By accepting Christ now as my personal Savior and Lord. I would like to talk with someone concerning my relationship with God.
