Guidelines During COVID

As we return to meeting in person, here is some information you need to be aware of. We will observe the following guidelines for every meeting at the church: Please only enter through the FRONT DOOR of the building (facing Rt. 44) and only exit through the main door (by the flagpole). Please abide by the 6 foot social distancing rule, with the only exception being those in your immediate family. No handshaking or hugging. Masks are not mandatory, but others may…

The Work Continues

Repair work to the church building continues today. It’s nice to see progress on this latest project related to the building. Keep an eye out, for there is much more to come. If the Lord allows, there will soon be a new church sign, and then a new multipurpose facility!  Phase 3 of the building program, Lord willing, is marching on! But… the church is not the building, is it? The building is just where the local church meets, and…

Weekend Update

Some good stuff happening this weekend: Tonight (Thursday) 6:30 PM (Well, technically not the weekend, but I’ll include it anyway.) – MEN’S BIBLE STUDY at the Johnson home. I had planned to make pizza on the grill for this, but the weather does not look like it will be cooperating, so Kathy will make something for the guys to eat, instead. I know… you’re truly disappointed. 😉 Whether you’ve attended these studies in the past or not, please join us…

Weekend Update

Lot’s of stuff happening! Phase 3. Communion. Men’s ministries. Women of the Word. Dual services on the Lord’s Day! Don’t miss out on what’s happening here at FBC!

The Bread and The Cup

This Lord’s Day is going to be exciting for a couple of reasons. First, because we will be gathered together in the Lord’s house on the Lord’s Day with the Lord’s people. The long absence did two things amongst those who belong to Jesus – either it made them long for the fellowship of the Lord’s Day or it made them become complacent to it. I hope you’re in the first group! I know I missed it terribly, and found…

Weekend Update – June 21

A lot is happening this weekend at FBC! Saturday, June 20 – Pray for the Egli family, as the memorial service for Bud’s wife Linda takes place at 11:00 AM. Linda passed away in March, and the COVID shutdown caused the postponement of the memorial service until now.   Also Saturday, those wanting to ride motorcycles, meet in the church lot at 2:00 PM. (PLEASE NOTE THIS TIME. I had it listed at two different times, but THIS IS THE…

Who Wants to Ride?

If the weather forecast doesn’t change, Saturday looks to be a nice day to drag out the motorcycles and ride. Join us at 2:00 on the 20th? Bring a little cash for food, as we’ll stop to grab something on the way back. We’ll observe the requisite social distancing rules, so this should be a nice safe way to fellowship with your brothers and sisters. See you Saturday!

Let’s Pray Again

We will hold Prayer Meeting this evening, Wednesday, June 10 at 6:30 in our sanctuary. We will also provide a partial live stream of the service on our YouTube channel – Friendship Bible Church Happenings. You are welcome to join us either way. If you participate in the live stream, you may share prayer requests via the chat window, and we will pray over those requests during the prayer time.  

Beginning Again!

Finally… after about 3 months of separation, we meet again! And oh how we look forward to seeing all of you again. We need each other. I recently read a Tweet from Mark Dever that really struck home to me. Mark is pastor of Capital Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. and a well known speaker at conferences around the country. Mark’s Tweet said, “I’m not planning on tweeting much this week. I’m away with Connie for our anniversary. I…
