Monday’s Moments…

21 But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3:21-24

We’ll continue our Roman Road Series this Sunday as we learn more about Paul’s letter to the church in Roman… this Sunday we’ll specifically learn how genuine joy and peace is available to every believer, even amidst the trials and trouble of today’s times. Join us for worship this Sunday, and invite a friend!

With school starting this week, and enrollment going up - Our SonShine Preschool Ministry is in need of a refrigerator to help store their lunches. If you have a fridge you want to donate (or give towards), please let us know. We would be grateful!

With school starting we are back to meeting again on Sunday evenings for Bible Study. We’ll meet in fellowship hall at 6:00pm, so we can enjoy any desserts or goodies that folks are welcome to bring and share. This Sunday we will be digging deeper and discussing the book of Romans with questions generated by our Sunday Morning Series.

Also, beginning September 22, our Christmas Chorale will start rehearsals for this year’s Christmas Concert with a “preview party” at 5:00pm. Rehearsals will be at 5:00pm each Sunday, with bible study to follow. If you can make a joyful noise, whistle, or hum… you are welcome to be a part of this year’s Chorale! Our Christmas program will be Sunday, Dec. 15th during our morning worship service.

Monday’s Moments…

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me… Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me.” (Psalm 51:10-12)

It seems that the bad news outweighs the good news as we read the headlines of the day… The Psalmists reminds us that we all need encouragement and “do-overs” in our lives, and that God is the creator of not just our hearts and lives, but also of the physical, emotional, and spiritual condition of our hearts as well. If your “Joy” needs a boost… look to our Creator, and pray through the prayer that King David wrote in Psalm 51. God is good, and He will provide what you need for today!

Vacations are coming to an end, and school is about to start. This Sunday we resume our Sunday evening services with a business meeting, then begin a companion study in the book of Romans, which we are teaching as a sermon series on Sunday’s in August.

This Sunday we will observe the Lord’s Supper along with our Roman’s Sermon Series. Come and worship the Lord with us at FBC, and invite a friend to come with you! Also, our youth ministry will be providing lunch as part of their on-going fundraising to help with camp. Let us know at the church office if you would like us to sign you up.

Don’t forget that our various team meetings and committee’s begin meeting again this Sunday.

Finally, On Sunday evening, August 25th we will be kicking off our new Sunday School year with an international meal and class contest. Each class has been assigned an ethic group to prepare a meal from that culture along with dressing the part. Everyone will get a chance to sample the cuisine and vote on the best representation. This fellowship meal will be a helpful reminder of our “Co-Mission” given to us (the church) in Matthew 28 to “go unto all the world”, and how our Sunday School ministry is a needed part of this great commission.

Coming Up:

* Wednesday Deacon’s Meeting at 2:00pm, and Bible Study, 6:00pm

Monday’s Moments…

What a great and fantastic week of VBS we had last week “In The Wild”… which was our theme and purpose in helping our children see Jesus , not just in creation, but every “snapshot” of their life and surroundings. We had 116 children and workers involved with VBS, and after Sunday’s VBS Family Worship – we have a total of 11 children who made decisions for Christ! Please pray as we follow up with these kids and their families (many who are unchurched) as we strive to connect them better with our church family and baptism.

Rita, Jackie, and I want to say Thank You to all our VBS workers for your diligence and faithfulness in being part of another successful VBS at FBC… you are loved and appreciated – job well done!

Soon, school will be starting and our new Sunday School Year will be upon us. We are working towards a new and different idea to kick-off our S.S. year… we will keep you posted once we have the complete plan in place, but being “Baptist”, you know food, fun, and fellowship will be involved. J But… you don’t have to wait for the new S.S. year to begin… at FBC there is always a seat (or pew) for you, along with a friend or two.

This Sunday we will have a special presentation from our MBC Disaster Relief team on the work and progress going on in Levasy. You’ll want to see and hear the stories being generated as these teams have served on our behalf, ministering to the Levasy community. Come and join us this next Sunday as we worship the Lord at FBC!

Finally, we are planning on having a FBC Christmas Chorale again this year. It has been a few years since we put a Christmas program together, but we’ll be looking for some folks to sing in our Christmas Chorale with rehearsals beginning in September. If you can make a joyful noise, we would welcome your contribution as we prepare to celebrate the upcoming Christmas season. We will host a special “preview” of the Christmas music and begin rehearsing on Sunday, Sept. 22nd at 5:00pm. I hope you’ll consider joining us! More details coming soon.
