Weekend Happenings!

There is some great stuff happening this weekend:   Saturday at 8:00 AM. Great food, good fellowship, and a time of Bible and prayer. What’s not to love about prayer breakfasts?     Final one of the year – Saturday at 6:30 PM. Corn hole tournament, and the usual array of games and fun. Bring your corn hole boards if you have them, and something to share food-wise, and your favorite board or card games. Let’s make this last one…

Easter Flowers

Just a quick reminder that if you want to order Easter flowers to help decorate the sanctuary for Resurrection Sunday, the orders are due this coming Lord’s Day (the 19th). 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!  

Two Big Announcements!

It’s Bowling Day! – The FBC Annual Bowling party is today, Saturday, from 2-4 PM at Kent Lanes (located at 1524 S Water St, Kent, OH 44240). AND… It’s Time Change Day! – Remember to set those clocks ahead tonight before retiring, so you don’t miss church tomorrow!  

Soup’s On!

This coming Lord’s Day is one of our favorite days of the year – RED HEART SUNDAY. It’s just a silly thing we do to liven up the dreary winter of February. Everybody wears something red, we enjoy some nice special music, and we have some fellowship afterwards. This year, we’ll have the American Heritage Girls and Trail Life Boys troops with us, and after the service we will enjoy a soup and salad luncheon. We could use a bit…

Missing Church?

I read an interesting quote by Donald Whitney. He wrote, “If you can miss church and not miss church, then something is absent from your heart and faith.” Ponder on that for a while. It’s actually quite profound, and interesting. And then I hope you’ll join us for worship on Sunday! Sunday School starts at 9:30 and Worship begins at 10:30. If you’ve been missing church, make this the Sunday you get back in the groove.

A Quiet Week

On this week between the holidays, we’ll be taking a break from a couple of things. Men’s Bible Study for this Tuesday is cancelled, as is the Wednesday Prayer Meeting. Enjoy the week of recovery from Christmas and anticipation of the New Year!  

Good Questions!

It’s the last Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for the monthly Bible Talk with the Elders, when we work through and attempt to answer questions people have about the Bible. Here are a few questions we will be talking about this evening: What does the Bible say about Christian tithing? Should a Christian tithe? What does the Bible say about dinosaurs? Are there dinosaurs in the Bible? What does the Bible say about drinking alcohol? Is…


Just a quick reminder that we serve at the Haven of Rest in Akron on the first Saturday of every month, feeding the homeless and needy. So that’s this Saturday, November 5. We meet at the Haven at 10AM. If you’ve never helped with rewarding ministry, give it a try. If you have questions, you can reach out to Paul Richards or Larry and Karen Cannon.  

It’s Not Too Late!

You can still make it to our great time of fun and food and fellowship at Walborn State Park. We’ll start the day worshipping, as is our custom on the Lord’s Day, and then we’ll head to the park at noon for burgers and dogs and fun. Bring a dish to pass if you wish, and a chair on which to sit. Lots of food. Lots of good Christian friends. And lots of things to do at the park. Rent…
