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…

Also, our softball team is currently at 3-1! This week will be…

Ladies Spring Banquet

Calling all ladies – the last day to purchase tickets is this coming Lord’s Day – May 7th. See Deeanna at the table in the foyer, so you don’t miss out on this great program this year!

I was wondering about that!

Didja ever hear a question asked about the Bible, and find yourself thinking, “I was wondering about that”, because you have had the same question? Well, this evening during our regular prayer meeting time, we’ll be having another of our Bible Talks with the Elders, where we attempt to answer, from Scripture, questions posed. We have a small number of questions for this evening, and so we could use a few more. Bring your questions and join us at 6:30!

Good Friday

We would love to have you join us for our Good Friday service tomorrow (Friday, April 7th) at 6:30 PM. Also, we will have 2 services on Easter Sunday (April 9th): Sunrise Service at 8 AM Resurrection Service at 10:30 AM  Breakfast will be available in The Commons following the sunrise service.

Bible Talk

It’s been a couple months since we enjoyed a “Bible Talk with the Elders” session. This Wednesday, March 29th, we will resume those sessions. We have some great questions from our teens that we will be addressing, as well as a couple others from the congregation. Is there a question on your mind that you’d like us to talk through? We don’t have all the answers, but we try to bring the Bible to bear on every question submitted. You…

Weekend Happenings!

Make checks payable to Wise Greenhouse. After the services on Easter, the flowers are yours’ to keep, so you can provide a bit of beauty for the Lord’s house, and for your own house as well!

It Is Hard To Enter

A word from Elizabeth Elliot today: The kingdom of God stands over against all other kingdoms—that is, over against all other authorities, sources of power, objects of trust. It is hard to enter the kingdom of God—not because an angel is set to keep us out, not because God would surround Himself with a highly selected elite, but because the condition for admittance is renunciation of all other kingdoms. The wealthy stranger who ran up to Jesus and knelt and…
