Monday’s Moments…

What a blessing we experienced this past Sunday as we observed the Lord’s Supper, witnessed Eli Arnold’s baptism, and had another come forward for Baptism making his public profession of faith in Christ! It was a good day at FBC, as we’ve been reminded of God’s expectations of us as we study the Seven Letters to the Seven Church’s in the book of Revelation. This Sunday we move to the next session/vision of what our Lord wants us to know about “The Reality of Revelation and What It Means For us” as we look at The Throne, The Lamb, and The Scroll. Join us this Sunday as we worship together – pray, prepare, be present, and invite a friend to worship and learn with us!

Special thanks to our students and parents who helped this past Sunday with Lunch, along with Carl and Jackie and our deacons who helped with all the preparations for Baptism and serving The Lord’s Supper… On any given Sunday there are so many who work, serve, and prepare to make our worship and teaching ministries effective each week. As Pastor, I so appreciate your serving, giving, and supporting our ministry together!

Please mark your calendar now for our upcoming Summer VBS and Block Party – this helps with our VBS enrollment and also helps us connect with our community. Sunday School classes are encourage to help by providing a “tailgate” of food during the block party, as we have games and fun to promote VBS throughout our community. The Block Party will be Sunday evening, July 8th from 6:00 -7:30pm. Food will be set-up and served in the air conditioned annex, with games outside. VBS will be the week of July15-20… volunteers needed and appreciated!

We are also making plans to show the movie “I Can Only Imagine” this August as we make preparation for our “Back to School/Church” campaign. This will be a free community-wide movie event with a powerful message of forgiveness. The dates are still to be determined, but we need to promote this movie, along with our VBS to our families and neighbors. To do this we hope to send by mail a community “invite” postcard to every home in Buckner, Sibley, and Levasy. This expense is not in our budget… so we are asking for some donations to help us cover the costs of the postcard and mailing which totals around $500. If you would like to help financially, please let the church office know. It is vitally important we continue to let folks know that Jesus loves them, and FBC does too!

Here’s What Coming Up:

  • June 13th – Prayer/Business Meeting, 6:00pm
  • June 18-22 – Youth Camp
  • June 29th – Summer Free Breakfast & Lunch Kid’s Feed Begins

Please Pray This Week:

  • Health & Recovery – Nikki Jackson & Colton, Ed & Johnnie Landis, Joyce Rose, Brock DeGrace, Paul Hickson, Jim & Diana Tanis, Shelby’s son - Jaxon, Nancy Stephens Grandson, Martha Meyer, Richard Buffalo, Kerri Nicholson, Deb Larson’s mom – Louretta, Mahayla Powell, Pat Buckner
  • Homebound – Mary Schmidt (hospice), Joyce Brammer, Jerry & Judy Buttress, Joann Drummond, Cathy Bishop
  • FBC Ministries – SonShine Preschool Summer Attendance, VBS, New guests and members, FBC finances & faithfulness.

Because of Jesus – We are Favored & Forgiven!

Monday’s Moments…

8 "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." Rev 1:8

We are continuing our summer sermon series in Revelation, and have been studying about the evaluation that our Lord gives the seven N.T. churches as He applies the spiritual stethoscope to their ministry and worship – and, how this evaluation also applies to our church, and our faithfulness. We’ll continue this insightful study this coming Sunday along with observing the two ordinances Jesus told us to practice until He comes again… Baptism and The Lord’s Supper. Join us for worship this Sunday, invite a friend, and anticipate a blessing!

Thank you church family for your generosity as the students raised over $400 on their bake sale last Sunday to go towards camp! This next Sunday they are providing taco box lunches to help with camp costs as well. If you would like to place your order for taco’s or walking taco’s, sign up at the info table this week, or call the church office for details.

Also, this Sunday is Church Council – right after worship. Please meet with your ministry teams and bring a report to Sunday’s Church Council, and grab a Taco on your way in!

Vacation Bible School is July 15-20 this summer… please pray about how you might give and serve during this important outreach ministry of our church. This year’s theme is “Game On!” A sports theme that will help communicate and challenge our kiddo’s about Jesus’ love for them. Our annual VBS block party and tailgate competition will be the Sunday evening prior on July 8th. This will take place in the Annex and Parking Lot. All Sunday School classes are encouraged to put together a tailgate party around the “Game On” sports theme. Games will be outside, and all the food will be inside the annex to avoid the hot temperatures. VBS Family Sunday will follow on July 22nd.

  • This Saturday – Men’s Breakfast, 8:00am
  • This Sunday – Worship, Baptism, and Lord’s Supper, Box Lunch Fundraiser, Church Council
