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…

National Day of Prayer!

No prayer meeting this evening (Wednesday, May 5th), but join us instead from 5-8PM tomorrow (Thursday, May 6th) for the National Day of Prayer. The church will be open between 5-8PM and you may come and pray anytime and for any length of time during those hours. My how our country needs prayer… how our culture needs prayer… how our neighbors need prayer… how our families need prayer. Join your FBC brothers and sisters and PRAY!

Does Anybody Know What Time It Is?

(Extra points if you can remember not only the TV show, but also the character that used to say that line!) But it’s not tool time… it’s PRAYER MEETING TIME! Join us tonight at 6:30 as we pray for one another. So many requests, and so little time left to pray for others. Prayer costs nothing, but accomplishes more than if it cost billions. “Become an expert in prayer during times of calm so that you can pray like an…

No Prayer Meeting Tonight!

Just a quick reminder that midweek prayer this week will be replaced with the Good Friday service.  So… No prayer meeting tonight. Join us Friday at 6:30 for our Good Friday service with Tuvya Zaretski of Jews for Jesus.  

Colossal Happenings!

Huge… enormous… immense… prodigious… gigantic… gargantuan… mammoth… cosmic! Those are a few words to describe some of the good stuff happening here at FBC over the next couple months. This Saturday we are restarting our Men’s Prayer Breakfasts! Having gone without these wonderful events for a year now, that is huge news indeed. Of course, we’re taking it slow and safe, so we’re limiting attendance to only 20. If you were one of those who managed to get on the…

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…

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!…

Prayer Meeting Update

Prayer Meeting this evening (November 11) will take place in Fellowship Hall, as the sanctuary is set up for this weekend’s Operation Christmas Child packing party. See you at 6:30 as we pray together… for one another… for our nation… for our leaders… for our world… for our needy… for so much that we need to be praying for!

The Serenity Prayer

The 18th century theologian Reinhold Neibuhr is thought to be the actual author of what we often call The Serenity Prayer. Niebuhr was a major influence on the German Pastor and Nazi resister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The version of the prayer we usually see is this: God, grant me the Serenity To accept the things I cannot change… Courage to change the things I can, And Wisdom to know the difference. But the original and full version is better. Perhaps you…
