October 4th is a day that many of us have awaited since March 15th. We are excited to announce the return to small groups (Sunday School). All adult classes will meet on the third floor of the A Building. Preschool and children will meet in their previously assigned room located in the music suite.
Sunday School will start at 9:30. The building will be opened at 9:15. We will continue to follow the protocols which have been in place since we returned to gathered worship in June. Everyone should plan to park in the worship center parking lot and enter through the worship center doors. Doors to the stairwells in the A Building will be propped open. If you require use of the elevator, we ask that only one person or family unit be on board at the time. Please follow social distancing and wear a face covering while moving through the building.

Room assignments may change depending on attendance patterns and room capacity.
Between now and October 31st, each member of Huffman Baptist Church is encouraged to nominate up-to twelve (12) church members for consideration to serve as Deacons. This is the first year of our updated selection process. Accordingly, the term of all current deacons will end on December 31, 2020. All active and inactive deacons are eligible to serve in 2021 provided they are nominated, meet the qualifications, and agree to serve. Nomination forms can be found on the church website or in the church office.
October will bring us another opportunity to make Jesus known across the street. We are partnering with Kingdom Family to assist families with food boxes. The utility companies will resume disconnecting services for non-payment in the month of October. We are taking names of families to provide food to enable families to use money from their food budget to pay their utility bills. Food boxes will include meats, fruits, vegetables and other nutritious items. Space is limited. If you know someone from our neighborhood who needs help, please ask them to call 205-407-7016. If you would like to volunteer, let me know.
