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 Greatest Privilege (and Power) in the World

We have a huge prayer list for prayer meeting tonight. Will you come and join us as we exercise the greatest privilege in the world and pray for these needs? There is nothing with more power than prayer. Jesus, who could have called 10,000 angels and Who had infinite resources at His disposal, relied on PRAYER to get things done. Tonight we gather at 6:30. We pray. We pray for each other… for our corrupt and sick nation… for our…

Weekend Stuff

Well here we are only into the 2nd Lord’s Day of the year, and already 2021 is turning into an interesting year. This Sunday at FBC will be an interesting one, too. Our 2 service schedule continues this week, with early worship at 8:30 and late worship at 10:30. The early service continues to be the more lightly attended, so if distancing is important to you, that’s the service to try. We have adequate spacing for the late service as…

Opportunity! It’s All New!

The year, that is. It’s 2021, and we’re starting all over with a new calendar. One of the things that is a wonderful opportunity if you have not yet taken advantage of it is midweek prayer meeting.   We will meet tonight at 6:30 in the sanctuary, open the word, share requests, pray together, and start this year off on the right foot. Will you join us? We are never longer than an hour, and we never ask anyone to…

Here It Is!!! Last Chance!!!

The last prayer meeting of 2020 is upon us this evening. I hope you’ll join us. I’m going to share a few thoughts about 2021, and what will be important going into the new year. And of course we’ll pray for one another… for our world… for the growth of the Kingdom… for souls… for health… for peace… for our land… for you. Much to pray about. Will you join us? It’s your last chance to do so this year!…

Carols and Candles

Because of the pandemic this year, I elected to cancel our normal Christmas Eve candlelight services. Those services normally draw a large crowd, and most of that crowd is from outside our normal church family. Out of an abundance of caution, therefore, I cancelled the normal Christmas Eve candlelight services this year. Some have expressed chagrin over that decision, and our awesome worship leader Beth came up with a compromise. We will use the prayer meeting this week, which is…

Christmas Baskets – Home Stretch

Saturday at 9:00 am we will pack and distribute our Christmas boxes for those who are struggling this Christmas season. If you still want to contribute, I’ve attached the current sign up sheet so you can see what’s still needed. All contributions need to be at the church no later than noon tomorrow (Friday). There will be someone at the church from 9 – 12 if you need to drop something off. And if you can help us pack the…

Christmas Cheer

We’ve had quite a few sick and struggling this Christmas season. We usually provide Christmas food baskets to the needy, but this year we’re targetting our own who have been down with COVID or any other such thing. Two things we need: If you know anybody who is hurting because of COVID or something like it, let us know so we can try and add them to the list of recipients. If you can donate any of the remaining items…

Coming to the End!

We are coming to the end in several ways: It’s Friday – the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. Praise the Lord it’s almost the Lord’s Day, the best day of the week and the start of a new one. It’s almost December – the end of 2020. Many will say Praise God for that. And the Scripture is clear that we’re in the last minutes. It’s almost the end of everything here as we know…

Thanksgiving Giving

Saturday at 10:00 we will pack and distribute boxes of food for some in need this Thanksgiving season. Will you help? We need some to pack the boxes, and some to deliver them. Saturday from 10-12. ‘Tis the season for thanksgiving giving!

Last Chance!

This coming Lord’s Day (November 22nd) is the last Sunday you can bring in shoeboxes for this year’s Operation Christmas Child collection. If you miss the Sunday deadline, the trailer won’t leave until 11 on Monday, so you can still bring boxes from 9-11 on Monday. Then that’s it! Pack those boxes! And pray like crazy for souls to be saved by the trailer load of shoeboxes going out from this place!
