Monday’s Moments…

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

Another great reminder for the beginning of our week… that our declaration of “Jesus as Lord” is both our personal response of worship, but also our witness (your story) to others. 

This week may we be about the task of being Jesus to others, and praying for others to see Jesus in our lives, as they seek Jesus in theirs. 

Our attendance for our Super Bowl party was light with the weather and such last evening, but a good time was had by all.  Congratulations to this year’s Chili-Champ, David Dayberry for winning this year’s chili contest… job well done David!

This Sunday we will be observing the Lord’s Supper, and learning about the three lessons that Jesus taught as He instituted the practice and remembrance of communion.  This will be a inspirational worship service as we continue to study the Holy Habits of being a faithful follower of Christ.  See you Sunday!

Guy’s don’t’ forget… Men’s Breakfast is this Saturday at 8:00am.  All are welcome to join us for a great breakfast, fellowship, and devotional.  The coffee will be hot, and the chocolate milk chilled – come and bring a friend!

Please Pray This Week:

  • Health & Recovery - Nadine Boman, Colton Eshleman, Jerry Schildknecht, Pat Barrows, Tammy Tennison, John Cahill (Jackie Schmidt’s dad), Debbie Bunting, Baby Hunter (Kim Degrace’s nephew),
  • Homebound – Joann Miles, Cathy Bishop, Joyce Brammer, Jerry & Judy Buttress, Joann Drummond, Mary Schmidt
  • FBC – Preschool, Sunday School, Winter Faithfulness and Finances

Let’s be the hands and feet of Christ, together!

Monday’s Moments…

“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matt. 7:24) - Jesus

This verse is the very reason we worship and study together as we’ve been reviewing “Helpful Holy Habits” as our January sermon series… Together we benefit as a church and followers of Jesus when we adhere and apply His words to our living and giving.  Isn’t it awesome that we have help and instructions and don’t have to wonder or wander alone!  God has promised never to leave us or forsake us.  We have the help and promises of a God who knows us and loves us - no matter what!  Join us this Sunday as we continue to Worship and study the Word together - invite a friend to worship this Sunday!

This coming Sunday afternoon is also our Famous (at least in our parts) Football Fellowship & Chili Cook-off!  Join us for the Super Bowl and enjoy the food, football, and fellowship… if you’re bringing a pot of chili to be judged, please have it here by 5:00pm.  Otherwise, bring some food to share, and a few cans of soup or non-perishable canned items to donate to our food pantry and come enjoy the fun.  The game and food starts at 5:30pm.  During halftime we’ll watch an inspiring mini-movie from Billy Graham ministries, then begin the clean-up during the second half and watch the rest of the game from home.  Again, invite a friend and lets enjoy this opportunity together!

Our SonShine Preschool & Daycare ministry has been doing well, and we just celebrated our 1 year anniversary the beginning of this month.  We have over 30 children enrolled, and new interest every week.  Bonnie Loper has been our Preschool Administrator, and has been instrumental and such a blessing in helping us get this ministry up and going.  She has truly put her whole-heart into this ministry as she interacts with the kids, their parents, and of course our wonderful teachers and workers.  That being said, Bonnie has asked to step back from being the full-time administrator so she can spend more time with her family.  Bonnie has parents in Pennsylvania that are needing her attention along with her precious grandson (and husband).   She will continue to help and serve as a consultant, and help the Preschool and First Kids with chapel and music.  Bonnie and our Preschool Board have done such a wonderful job in making this vision a ministry.  I have so appreciated everyone’s effort in making this ministry a part of our church and community outreach efforts.

Our personnel committee along with Preschool Board will begin the process of looking for a full-time Preschool Administrator.  In the meantime, one of our excellent workers, Charissa Oliver, will step in as our Interim Preschool Director.  Please pray for all of these folks as we continue the transition.  When you get a chance, join me in letting Bonnie know - “Job Well Done!

Have a blessed week and let’s remember to pray for each other, and read the the Word as we Worship together1

Please Pray This Week:

  • Health & Recovery - Nadine Boman, Colton Eshleman, Betty Johnson, Jerry Schildknecht, Cecil Lee Hertzberg, Tammy Tennison, Barb Martin
  • Homebound – Joann Miles, Cathy Bishop, Joyce Brammer, Jerry & Judy Buttress, Joann Drummond, Mary Schmidt

Monday’s Moments…

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:4-7

Perhaps there is nothing harder (yet simpler) in all of scripture to genuinely apply into our lives than this scripture above.  Anxiety is thick in our lives and circumstances… yet the most simplest thing we can do is trust Jesus.  We are not told to evade responsibility, but instead – we become responsible to God as we practice trusting Him.  Problems will always exists in our church, and church families… but as we learned yesterday, sometime God allows temptation and trouble to test how we respond to the choices presented to us. 

“Temptation avoided is a test passed with flying colors”.

Yesterday was another great day at FBC as we worshipped and acknowledged the Lord together – It was wonderful seeing so many guests and neighbors in our worship service!  Be sure to look around and welcome those who visit us each Sunday, who knows… you may just make a friend or two!  :-)

Don’t forget our Souper Bowl & Chili Challenge is coming up on Sunday, Feb. 4th.  Bring a pot of chili or soup (we’ll judge the chili), and bring some canned soup or non-perishables to donate to our local food pantry.  The judging will start and 5:00pm, and our football fellowship will begin at 5:30pm.  During halftime, we will watch a powerful 20 minute mini-movie from Billy Graham ministries.  Bring some food and a friend… we’ll end the party and clean up after half-time.

Finally – we have a family in our community who is in need of kitchen items (silverware, cooking utensils, baking sheet, pans, etc.).  If you have some items you would like to donate, please drop them off in the church office this week.  Also, don’t forget we have a clothes closet here at church… we’ll pass along your nice, gently used clothes and shoes if you have items to donate, and please pass the word to those who may have clothing needs we can help with.  Thank you for your giving!

Please Pray This Week:

  • Health & Recovery - Nadine Boman, Jerry Hickson, Terri Robbins, Colton Eshleman, Betty Johnson, Jerry Schildknecht, Cecil Lee Hertzberg
  • Homebound – Joann Miles, Cathy Bishop, Joyce Brammer, Jerry & Judy Buttress, Joann Drummond, Mary Schmidt
  • FBC – Preschool, Sunday School, Winter Faithfulness and Finances

Be Anxious for nothing – Pray and be thankful for everything!

Monday’s Moments…

It goes without saying, but “Baby It’s Cold Outside!” (Someone should write a song about this).  Please be careful and mindful of the weather conditions outside, and check on those around you or who sit next to you in church – there is a lot of sickness and ministry needs we can be a praying about during these blustery winter days. 

If you find time on your hands, take out your church directory and leaf through the pictures of our FBC family.  Find a name or two and pray for them, or even send a note of encouragement.  Remember, we are a family – we need to lift each other up… we are better when we are together – in body or spirit!

We started our winter sermon series last Sunday on developing “Helpful Holy Habits”… this week we’ll continue as we look at the value of knowing and reading God’s Word. 

Remember, If you miss a Sunday, you can usually find our worship service and listen online by visiting our church website:  www.fbcbuckner.org 

You can also view announcements, information, and give online from our website as well.

This week’s verse: “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”  - Col. 2:6-7

Please Pray This Week:

  • Health & Recovery - Nadine Boman, Jerry Hickson, Terri Robbins, Colton Eshleman, Howard Young, Jim Tanis, Betty Johnson, Jerry Schildknecht
