Memo

To: All Original Free Will Baptists

From: The Convention Executive Committee

Date: February 24, 2021

Subject: Postponement of the annual meeting of the Convention

The OFWB Convention Executive Committee met on February 16, 2021 and decided to postpone the 2021 annual meeting of the Convention until sometime in the fall of this year. We traditionally meet in mid-May, but the decision to postpone was deemed necessary due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

No date has been set for the fall meeting. When that date has been decided you will be notified well in advance. It is our prayer that the Covid pandemic will be over or under control enough that we can safely meet at that time.

This pandemic has caused misfortune and tragedy for many throughout the world.  As Christians, we have a great responsibility to show the world how Christians are supposed to act under adverse circumstances.

Let us all unite in prayer for all our Churches, Ministries, Conferences and Convention. Some of our Churches have remained strong while others have not been able to meet for many weeks. Pray that OFWB will remain resilient through all this adversity.

May is Free Will Baptist Children’s Home Month

The Free Will Baptist Children’s Home is located at 7907 Buck Deans Rd, Middlesex, NC 27557. “The Home” has been serving children in need for the past 100 years. The Home was first an orphanage which cared for children orphaned by the death of one or both of their parents. Through the years, our society has changed, and our health care has improved. Unfortunately, children still need a safe place to stay outside of their homes and natural families. Free Will Baptists have been there faithfully caring for children regardless of their need.

Mr. Gary Lee is the President/CEO of The Home. He and his staff can be reached by phone at 252-235-2161. The mailing address is P.O. Box 249, Middlesex, NC 27557.

The website is https://www.fwbchildrenshome.org. You can also find the Home on Facebook by searching for “Middlesex Children’s Home.”
