The First Baptist Church of Hammond would like to invite all pastors, ministry leaders, laymen, and ladies to an intensive training forum, discussing practical helps in church ministry. This event will be held on Tuesday, October 8, and will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the Administrative Office Building. There will be an encouraging service on Tuesday evening with uplifting music and inspirational preaching by Evangelist Maury Gibson. There is no charge for this forum, but delegates will need to register to attend. We pray that at the end of the day, your heart will be stirred, your mind challenged, and your resolve strengthened to do more for God and for others. Delegates may register online at by Tuesday, October 1. As a bonus, you are invited to join us at Hyles-Anderson College for classes and chapel on Wednesday morning.
