Finally! Our church directories are in and we will be distributing them in your mailbox this week. For the members, unable to attend church we will mail the directory to you. If you do not get one come by the church office for a copy.
Though it is still winter it is time to start thinking about the summer. Last summer during July we took a pause in our regular activities to focus on getting to know our neighbors, especially those that are not in church. FBC in July focused our week around Sunday morning worship. We started worship with an hour of fellowship in the fellowship hall and then went to worship. Worship itself had some variations in our normal music which included introducing Andrew Liggett and his wife to lead worship with their guitar. We focused on preaching simple Gospel messages.
This July, we plan a similar course of events. Sunday school classes, choir, committee meetings, Wednesday night Bible study; basically, everything but worship, Sunday fellowship, Hope Kitchen and Heritage Outreach is suspended. This allows us to spend time meeting and reaching our neighbors. Our theme this summer is “Everyone can do something.” We ask that everyone pray about one person who does not know Christ and pray for them. After that everyone can do at least one item on this list of outreach activities that includes; meeting your neighbors, inviting them to church, having a Gospel conversation, sharing your faith with them, or beginning a short Bible study with your neighbor. To prepare for “FBC in July” we will have some special training during Wednesday evening. More will be said about this but I ask everyone pray about this important outreach event for our church.
