#GREATEATS Caked Up Bakery & Cafe

Today was our first trip to the newly opened Cafe at Caked Up in downtown Eupora and it was worth the wait! YUM!

The Bakery has been opened for over a year and I have purchased many of my cakes and cupcakes there, since I have not been up to my usual baking adventures this past year! Their cakes are FANTASTIC! (Especially the chocolate cake with white icing!!!)

I will say I was totally impressed with the chicken salad sandwich on croissant –my favorite bread for the chicken salad sandwich.

The croissant was toasted, which was delightful! And their chicken salad has a little something different about it. I am sure it will take a few more sandwiches to figure out what they put in it! It was so good, and then we had dessert.  Continue reading

Celebrate with powerful music that tells the story of Easter

It is Rev. John Herring’s hope that “everyone who comes will worship the Lord and recognize in a fresh way the sacrifice that Jesus made at Calvary.”

“Music is such a powerful tool to share the gospel, because it touches the very depth of our soul and emotions,” Herring said.

Herring is the minister of music and associate pastor at First Baptist Church of Eupora, and director of the 2017 FBC Eupora Easter Cantata. The event is set for 6 p.m. April 9 in the sanctuary of FBC Eupora. Continue reading

Webster-Choctaw County D-NOW set for this weekend

20170110162025_00001Students will be able to tell this year’s Disciple Now (D-NOW) Weekend will be different almost immediately.

Cody Robertson, youth minister at First Baptist Church of Eupora, said FBC Eupora will be partnered with multiple churches and will not hold services in Eupora. D-NOW will be Feb. 10-12.

“We plan to spend Saturday afternoon involved with mission work, intentionally reaching out to areas of poverty in Choctaw and Webster County,” Robertson said. “With a large number of churches involved, we can expect everything to be done on a larger scale. Worship service, recreation, even eating will all be done with every church that is involved.”

Valentine Love Bags

thWhat better way to share the love of Christ with children in our community than to share a sweet treat on Valentine’s Day! I could use a little help…Pepper and I would like to put together about 100 Valentine’s Day “happies” for the LOVE BAG project. The children who receive LOVE BAGS are needy students in Webster County Schools (K-12 in both Eupora and East Webster Schools). These children struggle with many of the necessities we often take for granted, even food over the weekend.

We are hoping to collect Valentine Candy, juice boxes, Valentine cookies, maybe a small Valentine toy, etc. for a special “happy” for 100 children. If you can donate a bag of candy, Bibles, salvation tracts, a box of juice boxes or cookies (or anything else the children could use), please drop them by First Baptist Church of Eupora’s church office (from 8 a.m.-noon or 1-4:30 p.m.) before Feb. 12 (THIS SUNDAY)! We would greatly appreciate it!
