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.

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…

20 Days of Prayer for America

Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes (Daniel 9:3 NKJV). Tonight in our midweek prayer meeting, we will begin 20 days of prayer and fasting for America. Will you join us? We will pray for one another, of course, and for the various needs of our church. We will prayer for victory and protection and health and souls to be won for Jesus. We’ll pray for…

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…

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.  

National Day of Prayer

Wednesday evening prayer meeting will NOT be held this week, as we will be participating in the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 7th. That means that the church will be open for you to come and pray as you see fit. We don’t have a sign up sheet this year as in the past, when we asked you to sign up for a time slot to try and ensure we had people praying throughout the evening. This year,…
