Dear Church Family,
On September 27th, the members of Bon Air Baptist Church voted unanimously to partner with Del Ray Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA to honor and preserve the legacy of BABC. We thank the Lord for the unity he gave our congregation to move forward in faith for the work of the gospel in our community!
This Sunday, October 25th, we will have a final memorial service to remember and honor the church's history, life, and ministry. We will sing some of our favorite songs, pray together, hear a final message, and say goodbye to the church we love.
We will also have a designated time in the service for Bon Air members past and present to share a personal memory of Bon Air. We want to allow every member to share if desired, so each memory will need to be shared succinctly; think 1–2 minutes as a goal.
If you desire to share a memory, I encourage you to focus on 1–2 aspects of the church's ministry: a pastor, a teacher, a mentor, a friend, a class, a group, a missions trip, a service project, etc. Please share how you were blessed through this ministry and convey a thankful spirit. This will help encourage and comfort one another as we remember God's grace together.
I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to testify to God's grace in your life through the ministry of Bon Air. Of course, if you prefer not to share anything and just listen, that is perfectly fine. There is no expectation on anyone to share something.
I pray that you will make every effort to attend this special service. You don't want to miss out on the blessing of this final gathering!
For His Glory,
