“Faith of our fathers, living still….”  FAITH – What a wonderful thing to pass along to our sons and daughters!  The Church desperately wants, and needs, strong godly fathers who will practice a living faith that inspires their children, and others around them, to seek the Christ who is “…the Author and Perfecter of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:2).  

It was good to be in the Lord’s House this past Sunday and see so many fathers present with their families.  The father who leads his family to Sunday School and worship services every Sunday is the wise dad whose example will be of great value for his children. 

Do you recall some of the characteristics of the loving father we picked up from Jesus’ parable in Luke 15? The loving father not  only properly disciplines his children (never abusing them!) but prays for them daily, loves them and forgives them.  We Christian dads will do well to “….Be imitators of God….” (Ephesians 5:1) and develop these character traits in our lives.

 

Lots of activity taking place this summer here at FBC.  The (TT)Transition Team has hit the ground running and they need your prayer support AND INPUT to move the church forward in our intentional interim process.  They will have some upcoming event news to report to you soon. Great days lie ahead for FBC Hamburg, and let’s just keep our eyes focused on Jesus, the only One who can give us the faith that allows us to finish the race strong!  Have a great week walking with Him.

Thank you all for the worship last Sunday. I am so encouraged by the spirit in our church. You are all so special and you make leading worship so easy that I sometimes forget I am leading.
Choir, I’m sorry we had to cancel our rehearsal last Wednesday, but that downpour and lightning was awful. We have a lot of work to do this week.  We will be working on “I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb” for July 4, and we will continue to work on “He Never Failed Me Yet” and “Untitled Hymn”.

Parents of Children (Grades 1 - 5 this fall)

 

We will be taking three trips this summer. The trips will be on weeks when we are not having the Summer Fun days. We will go to the Safari Park in Delhi. The second trip will be to El Dorado to enjoy their new fun park. Then finally, if we can get enough adults to go, we will go to Magic Springs.

Parents, please contact me if you are willing to help.

This Wednesday at The Source, we are going to be continuing the Animated series. Through out this series we are looking at  different scripture that help us understand what an animated, or full of life, faith looks like. This week, we are going to look at a clip from the animated movie Coco, and then  digging into scripture to look at verses that deal with people remembering our faith. It is going to be a great night of worship and I  cannot wait to see the students there!

 

Please be in prayer for the students that will be going to SuperSummer Arkansas at the end of the week.  We have 14  students in all, 7 to JV and 7 to senior high, and the JV is leaving Saturday! It is going to be a great camp. If you have not received your parent info, I will have the packets on Wednesday night, or you can come by the office whenever! Also, please get your students money in for camp as soon as possible!
