We are trying to get the nursery back up and running, but we have not been able to because we are in need of a nursery director since our long time nursery director Pat Carpenter moved away.  If you would be    interested or know anybody who would be interested in being our nursery director please contact me or Mark Morris.


Let’s continue to give and pray for the Dixie Jackson State Missions offering which goes to support missions and ministries in the state of       Arkansas. Please sign up to get a copy of the Pray For The World book which we will use to pray for the gospel to reach people around the world. We will begin this prayer campaign on January 1, 2021, but we hope to start ordering the guides next month so that we will be ready to pray        together when the new year arrives.


This next month we are in need of individuals and groups to put     together items for a silent auction to support the Lottie Moon Christmas offering. We are not going to have our Wild Game Supper this fall, but  maybe look to rescheduling it in the first few months of 2021. However, we still want to have the silent auction which launches our Lottie Moon campaign in November. We need you to start supplying items that we will set up in the fellowship hall to be auctioned off in the first week of November.


In Christ,

Brother Ty

 



This Wednesday we continued our series called Taking God At His Word.

 

We dug into Romans 3 and talked about how Scripture is necessary to know about God and what he has done for us.

 

Please continue to pray for our students and student ministry!

Hey church family!

 

This week I've started contacting choir members about singing in some ensembles for our Christmas program this year.

If you haven't been contacted yet, don't worry. The list that I have doesn't have everyone's phone number and some of your contact information has changed since the list was made.

If you don't think your name is on the list and you would like to participate in singing for Christmas, please let me know.

My number is (501)840-1554 if you have any questions. 


In Him,

Bro. Will Richey

Music Minister

Worker Meeting at 4 on Sunday

 

This is what AWANA will look like for now…..

2) No meal; only pre-packaged snack or Kool-Aid, which we could serve in the fellowship hall a group at a time or have in the classroom of each group.

 

3) No Game Time for the moment.

 

4) A socially distanced large group time for 3-5 in the Sanctuary and K-2nd grade in the fellowship hall where a Bible story/Large group lesson will be read, prayer time, etc.

 

5) Smaller kids are not meeting at the moment.

 

6) Split groups up into no more than 5 kids to do verses with an adult.

 

7) Adults wear masks; children are optional.

 

8) Have 2 different pick-up points. Smaller kids at the fellowship hall and older kids under awning.

 

NOTE:    Awana seems to be working on a lot of digital material we can also use.

Our Life Choices center has continued to serve Ashley County with clothing, diapers, wipes and other needed items as we have had requests.   As of June 8, the center has opened up part-time under the guidelines of Gov. Hutchinson. 

 

The annual Baby Bottle Campaign would  usually run from Mother’s Day until Father’s Day but with social distancing during this  pandemic handing out baby bottles is not  possible.  However, we still need your support.

 

We are asking that churches conduct a Diaper Drive through the month of July.  We need diapers, pull-ups and wipes.

 

Beginning in July,  donations may be left at an entrance to FBC & Your OutReach Committee will make sure these items are delivered to the center. 

 

Thanks for your support of this ministry.

Nicole Courson, Director
