News -- for the week of March 18 - 24, 2019
I want to thank all of you for another wonderful day of worship here at FBC Hamburg. It is a blessing to be working alongside you all, and I know the Lord has some awesome things in store for the days ahead.
We have several people in need of prayer. Jim Yarbrough is recovering at home and we pray that the Lord continue to heal and strengthen him. Continue praying for Lequieta to recover from the C-Diff relapse. Also, our drummer Garrett Milam has been diagnosed with a tumor behind his heart. Be praying that he be healed completely and that the Lord watch over Emily and him in the days ahead. This week he will be spending some time in Little Rock receiving a biopsy and figuring out what the treatment process and schedule will look like. As we have seen in the Gospel of Mark, we serve a Savior and Lord who heals so let us lift up these and others we know who are sick in prayer.
This Wednesday night, we aren't having a normal night, but we are cooking hamburgers at the ROC and playing some spikeball from 4-6:30! It just going to be a fun night of hanging out for those who are here for spring break!
Friday, we are heading to Monroe to eat dinner and watch Captain Marvel (please keep a look at it on Facebook for the times for this)! The cost is $10 for the movie plus extra $ for snacks and dinner. Hope to see the students there!
This Sunday, after morning worship, we are having a Dine N Dash to raise money for students going to StreetReach this summer! All the money raised will be divided equally among every student going so that the cost lowers for every student. Please come and support our students and the heart for inner city Memphis!
Wednesday Night Suppers!!
If you can cook & serve, contact Lonni Davis 500-3190.
A grief support group is meeting on Tuesdays at 6:00 through May 28th in the fellowship hall. The group will not meet during spring break. One can join the GriefShare group at any time. Each session is “self-contained” and sessions do not have to be attended in sequence. Plans are to have the program available again in August.
You are invited to a Bridal Shower honoring

Thank you all for your patience last Sunday. If you will continue to be patient, we will get everything worked out. I thought your singing was awesome. Thank you choir for the beautiful worship song, “Written in Red.” I am so thankful for all of our musicians who lead us in worship each week. You are all such a blessing!
We will continue to pray for Garrett, Emily and the Fluker family. We serve a great God and he is above all, through all and in all. He is a compassionate God and He is a healing God.
Adult choir WILL meet this Wednesday night and we will spend a larger part of the rehearsal on the Easter music. Please join us at 7:30.

As the weather gets warmer, Bro. Ty & I would like to include some Senior Adult activities during the weekdays. We are looking at fishing trips, board games and lunch, day trips, etc. But, we know some of you are still working and we need to come up with a “free” day. If you could get us that information along with other activities you would like to do, we will work with your schedule. Looking forward to hearing from you.
