Opportunities For The Fall

School has started and we are back into the “swing” of doing church.

In addition to school starting fresh so does church. We have a number of opportunities for you to grow in your faith. Please look at The Vision or go to fbccov.org to get the complete picture. We have almost any scenario possible to encourage you in your faith and to grow you in ministry in the name of Christ.

These are the areas where I will be leading in the coming year.

First, my new sermon series on “Forgiving and Letting Go” begins this weekend. For the next eight weeks we will look at the universal need to be forgiven and to forgive. Many of us are being held back because we won’t let go. Over the next few weeks we will let God speak to us through His Word about the absolute necessity to forgive and let it go.

We all know how difficult this is. We also know our failure to let go is holding us back. Fortunately, God has provided for our needs.

Please invite others to join us for this important series.

Second, each Tuesday I teach men about Becoming Men of Influence. We will look at the foundation of our faith as Paul wrote to the church at Rome.

Whether you are brand new to following Christ or a veteran, you will be helped by looking at the word of God and returning to the basics. We meet each Tuesday at 6:30 AM for breakfast and a lesson related to becoming a man of influence. The meeting takes place in the church Fellowship Hall and finishes promptly at 7:30 AM.

Finally, each Wednesday night (at 6:30 PM in the church Fellowship Hall) I teach an indepth verse by verse study of a biblical book. Beginning this Wednesday, I will teach through Paul’s letters to the Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians. These books are filled with the truths about God and faith with an emphasis on practical application.

Please take advantage of all the opportunities to grow in your faith.

  1. An opportunity to serve and be blessed beyond measure is in the preschool department. There are openings for teachers assistants in several age groups. The only requirement is to love children.

  2. The Preschool Department is a very loving and busy place. We have so many seeds of faith just waiting to be planted and you could become a gardener filled with hugs and stories that are only told by the wonderful children who attend each Sunday. As Sandy said the only requirement is to love His children!
    We provide the sunshine even on a rainy day. Please think about joining us even if it is just once a month. You will be so blessed.

  3. Hi, Waylon! I think we have found a church home – First Baptist Church of Naples. When we walked in last week and heard the choir singing, we had goosebumps! Also, they have a lot of programs that we can join – a large women’s Bible study that is taught by the pastor’s wife. The pastor is a good speaker, but he is not you. You truly have a gift. I have to admit I cried when I got the email about Martha’s Bible study starting back up. I truly believe, though, that we are where we need to be. Our other daughter is getting married in March and I have been across to Ft. Lauderdale several times to work on the wedding. Please continue to keep them in your prayers. John and I are hoping to visit Mandeville in October. You can bet your bottom dollar that I will be in church that weekend! The construction on our house is progressing nicely! John is over there daily “supervising”. Thanks so much for keeping me on your email list!

    1. Susan, it’s so good to hear from both of you. Please let Hayes know you have come from our church. We will continue to pray for all of you and will look forward to seeing you in October. May God bless you.
