The Season of Graditude.......
The Riverside Baptist Association's Annual Meeting was such a blessing! From the TBMB Ministry Reports and RBA Mission Reports to the music and strong biblical messages of encouragement. We glorified the Lord for His grace and mercy to us.
Several gave thanks to Bro Chris and Chrisie for their service to RBA as they begin their final weeks as Director of Missions and Administration Assistant. We pray that the Lord continues to bless them as they enter the season retirement from full time ministry on January 1, 2020.
THANK YOU ! ! ! !
RBA churches provided 100 Christmas Backpacks to be distributed within Tennessee.

TN WMU has Advocates to help!
TN WMU WorldCrafts Advocate- Charlyene Couey. I am so excited to be a WorldCrafts advocate for middle Tennessee. I am passionate about WorldCrafts because WorldCrafts became a big part of my life several years ago at mission fairs for WMU. I learned it was not just pretty jewelry but a ministry that provided income to women around the world. Growing up in Panama and Morocco, I had seen the ways women had to live and try to feed their children.
Recently, I had the privilege to work with refugee ladies at Begin Anew Refugee Artisan Group in Nashville screen-printing for WorldCrafts. Their love of life, work ethic, and willingness to work was pure joy to see! WorldCrafts gives these women a sense of worth, pride in their work, fellowship with others and an opportunity to learn about our Father!
Are you looking for a different way to involve your congregation in missions? I would love to come to your church to share the vision and mission of WorldCrafts. After seeing the beautiful products produced by WorldCrafts artisans and learning how WorldCrafts is transforming the lives of impoverished people around the world, your church will want to become involved in this ministry, too.
There are several ways I can share WorldCrafts with your congregation or missions groups:
