Mableton First Baptist Church
On January 19, 1994, the church voted to cancel the Sunday and Wednesday services on October 26 and October 30 to allow members to attend the Billy Graham Crusade services in Atlanta.
On April 20, 1994, the church voted to extend our Summer Day Camp for community children from a one-week event every summer to a full-time, summer-long camp. The dates for camp in 1994 would be June 6 to August 19.
A Bus Purchase Feasibility Committee was established on May 18, 1994, to study all things bus-related. The committee eventually concluded that we did need a new bus or van (holding at least 15 passengers) due to the age and condition of our present bus and van. This committee made a recommendation to the Finance Committee, who would handle the financing of the purchase. The church, in the interim, approved a plan to start a campaign for gifts over and above the normal tithe for this purpose.
On May 18, 1994, the church approved Augustin Pacheco as Pastor of the Spanish Mission being held in our church. This mission met on Sunday mornings in another part of the building at the same time as our worship service.
Our Summer Day Camp, as of June 15, had 126 enrolled, with an average daily attendance of 69 to 72. Camp provided a fun-filled, Christ-centered alternative for children. The camp director for 1994, 1995, and 1996 was Wendy Peal Bartlett.
On September 21, 1994, the name of our Kindergarten Ministry was changed to the Preschool and Children's Ministry due to the variety of services it provided: Kindergarten, Summer Day Camp, After-School Program, Mother's Morning Out, etc.
Charlie Marshall was ordained to the ministry at our church on November 13, 1994.
