 NEW ADDRESS INFORMATION NEEDED

 

The postal service is always up-dating addresses.  If you have a change in address,        please call  the office or email Kay at goldentriangleba@bellsouth.net                              We want to keep you informed.

 Also if your church has an extra current Church Directory, Please share it with our office. This is a great help to our office as we try to match faces with church families. There are 65 churches in the Golden Triangle Baptist Association, lots of folks to learn and remember! Thanks for your help.

 ACP news: As of today, we have not received from LifeWay the ACP reports. Please be sure that your ACP person knows this and that all contact information is correct with us. We understand that Clay county has had a change in address for almost everyone. Please take a moment to help us update our records. As soon as we receive the Annual Church Profile reports we will get them in the mail to your church. As you are waiting, please know that the same information will be asked for and you may go ahead and begin collecting that so that entering it either electronically or on paper can be done quickly. Southern Baptist Directory Services (SBDS) is no longer on-line. We will now be using SBC Workspace. (www.sbcworkspace.com ) This program will be different for you as it will be for us. The site is up and running, but so far, does not have our reports in place. The return date is Sept. 9th, but we will receive them as soon as you can have them ready. Thank you for your patience and diligence in helping us get this project accomplished. We do utilize the information and appreciate the work that is involved.
