Phase 3 HOME STRETCH Tasks as of May 12, 2022

Wow… we’re getting close to the end now! Response to these posts has been quite poor in the last few months. I know we’re all getting tired. I’m reminded of one of things that Nehemiah faced when building the wall – Then Judah said, “The strength of the laborers is failing, and there is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.” (Nehemiah 4:10 NKJV) I know we’re all tired and longing for this project to…

R.O.N.O.P.A.A.T. – Have you signed up yet?

Dear FBC Family, We recently began a program that the Lord has laid heavily on my heart – R.O.N.O.P.A.A.T. – Reaching Our Neighbors One Prayer At A Time. You may remember some years ago we had R.R.O.D.A.A.T. which was Reaching Randolph One DOOR At A Time. We managed to cover a good portion of Randolph in that effort, but participation was minimal and we eventually put that program to rest. However, I recently became aware of a way that we…

To Pray or not to Pray

Don’t forget brothers and sisters – NO PRAYER MEETING THIS EVENING… NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER tomorrow, Thursday, from 5-7PM. Drop in anytime and pray for as long as you want. Our country needs prayer!

They Ate!

So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, (Acts 2:46 NKJV) That was the early church, and guess what? We will follow in their footsteps Saturday (April 23rd at 8AM) as we gather for Men’s Prayer Breakfast! Guys, this is not something you’ll want to miss – join us for great food and fellowship. Bring your Bibles and prayer requests, too, for…

Good Friday and Easter Sunday

The sanctuary is ready and decorated for Good Friday and Easter. I hope you will join us as we remember our Lord’s sacrifice on the cross on Good Friday. We’ll meet at 6:30 this evening for that service. Communion will be served. Then we’ll meet at our regular times on Sunday as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection – 9:30 for Sunday School and 10:30 for worship. A note about parking: The church lot remains in disarray due to our building project.…

Midweek and Weekend Update

It’s Easter weekend, and so our schedule changes a bit. There will be NO prayer meeting this evening (Wednesday). Good Friday service will be held on Friday (April 15th) at 6:30 PM. Communion will be served. Sunday School WILL meet on Sunday at 9:30 AM followed by our Easter Worship Service at 10:30 AM. Join us as we worship and serve our risen Savior!  

Are You Ready?

On that first Palm Sunday, one of the messages embedded in Jesus’ triumphal ride through the Eastern Gate atop a donkey was, “Are you ready for the King?” We ask it still today as we await His second coming. “Are you ready for the King?” He’s coming, you know! This Lord’s Day we’ll remember Palm Sunday. Will you join us? Sunday School is at 9:30 Worship Service is at 10:30  

Ready… Set… RESET!

Last week we had only a handful of people who attended prayer meeting. Let’s reset that this week and get back to normal. SO MUCH TO PRAY ABOUT! SO MANY WHO NEED PRAYER! Martyn Lloyd Jones said, “There is nothing that tells the truth about us as a Christian people so much as our prayer life.” And another said “Much prayer, much power. Little prayer, little power. No prayer, no power.” Let’s go for the power! Let’s have much prayer…

Let’s limit him…

Satan, that is. Rick Warren once said, “Satan tries to limit your praying because he knows your praying will limit him.”  So let’s limit the devil and pray together tonight at prayer meeting. We’ll start at 6:30 and end by 7:30. Are you willing to invest an hour in the most eternally significant activity you can undertake?

Have you ever wondered…?

Tonight, during our regularly scheduled prayer meeting, we will have yet another round of Bible Talks with the Elders. Several questions have been submitted, and we will do our best to talk through the issues and answer the questions from a Biblical perspective. Even if you don’t attend prayer meeting regularly, you’ll enjoy these discussions. And if you find yourself wondering what the Bible says about a particular thing, there will be opportunity to add your questions to the list!…
