News -- for the week of November 11 - 17, 2019
It’s been a little bit of the journey but this next Sunday we will see Jesus entering the city of Jerusalem to be crucified. We will see the fickleness of the crowds and the final attacks of the religious leaders against Jesus. Everything Jesus has called his followers to do will be put to the test in this last part of Mark’s Gospel. We will put the full picture of Jesus’s identity together in this latter part of Mark in the weeks ahead. Plan on being here this Sunday morning.
On Sunday evening we will look at the doctrine of the Trinity. If you have had any questions about the Trinity, Sunday evening would be a great time to plan on being here. I look forward to worshipping with our church family this week.
P.S. It’s going to be cold outside this week so stay warm.
Thank you for those who have checked in & prayed over us this week as I have been sick (hopefully by the time you read this, I'll be over it!) I need to thank a few people. Thank you so much to Bro Ty for filling in for me last Wednesday night. I hate missing a Wednesday night but it makes me feel better to know that we have a Pastor who is here to support the church and staff in whatever way he can! Thank you to my amazing adults on Wednesday (whether its cooking for high school breakfast or worship at night). They made last Wednesday run without skipping anything! Finally, thank you to you as the church for checking in, praying and cooking food! We feel so loved and supported!
This Wednesday we will have Jeremy Woodall, BCM director at UAM coming in to lead our students in worship and dig into scripture with them. I am very excited to have him come down and invest in our students!
Breakfast with Santa is just a few weeks away! This was one of my favorite events that we did last year, and I cannot wait for this years! The handouts for schools just came in so every student PreK3-5th grade will be sent home with one of these by the end of the week! If you are thinking of serving, it is the first Saturday of December, Dec 7th, and we will have many different areas that will need workers! From cooking pancakes, to greeting, to activities for kids & pictures with Santa, there are plenty of ways for you to be involved!
”I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122:1
Sunday was another great day in God’s house. We proudly honored our Veterans. I personally am so thankful for their service. Thank you choir for the beautiful special music. I’ve loved Just As I Am (I Come Broken) since I first heard it. We are glad to be able to share it with our church and honor God in the process. When we come to Christ, we are broken. Praise God He is able to fix us forever!
To all choir members, both great and small: You need to make every rehearsal between now and December 15. There are 5 rehearsals remaining. Now is not the time to miss! We will not rehears on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving but we will rehearse on Thursday, December 12. Remember, the dress for the musical is ALL BLACK. No white on the shirts, pants or tops. No necklaces, ladies (well, I guess that goes for men as well).
Blessings to you all,

We are deeply humbled by your response to the loss of our loved one, Sonny.?? We are so grateful for the prayers that are keeping us lifted up through these difficult days and ask that you continue to pray for us. Thank you for the many acts of kindness extended to us. We appreciate the Jones-Hartshorn staff, Brother Bobby, Brother Ty, Brother Bob, Pam Smith, Brother Turner, Jim Yarbrough, and other caring friends?? for making Pop’s funeral just right.

We have several ministries of FBC, Food Groups, Flower Committees and Nursery Volunteers. This is the time of year when we make changes for the next year to keep things running smoothly. Please help us minister to our Church family by getting involved. If you are not involved in each of these ministries and would like to be, please contact Deedee at 853-5520. Also, if for any reason you need to be removed from any of these ministries, please let Deedee know that as well.
GriefShare meets each Tuesday at FBC Fellowship hall. The fee for the workbook is $15.00 with scholarships available upon request.
Please call the church office at 853-5520 to register and to let Deedee know if you are in need of nursery services.
