Thanks to Dr. Mike Smith for facilitating the workshop. The next workshop will be How Your Church can Start Ministries for Those With Hurts, Habits and Hangups. The workshop will deal with ministry to those with addictions, those who have experienced divorce and those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

United Thanksgiving Offering Update
The total amount received thus far for the United Thanksgiving Offering (UTO) is $74,500. The UTO is divided on a percentage basis among the departments of the BMA of Texas, including: Baptist Missionary Loan Association, BMA of Texas Missions, Baptist Progress, Jacksonville College and Texas Baptist Home for Children. The goal for the 2015 UTO was set at $125,000. Obviously, we have a long way to go in meeting our set goal. If just 100 churches, classes, auxiliaries, groups or individuals would give $505 each, we would meet our goal. You or your church might have given already, but if you can, please give a little more so that we can reach our goal of $125,000. The grand total of
the UTO will be published in the Feb. 17 issue of Baptist Progress. Please send your offering to BMA of Texas, P.O. Box 73, Waxahachie, Texas 75168.

Alumni are valuable. Their good words to others about JacksonvilleCollege are the best recruiting tool we have. Their gracious wealth shared in donation of time, skills, labor, advice, and money are valuable resources. I am blessed at any meeting I attend when someone comes up to me and says, “I am a graduate of Jacksonville College.”

• Individual annual membership: $25
