What’s Happening Now

We all want to know what’s happening. Here are some of the things you need to know about what’s going on around FBC.

First, Jay Johnston. Sunday is our day to thank and encourage Jay Johnston as Jay and Jerilyn move to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to begin a new place of ministry. Jay and Jerilyn will be in the Connect Center today after the 11:00 worship service. Please let them know of your appreciation for their ministry.

Second, Christmas Eve services. We will have two very special Christmas Eve services at 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM. Please attend and invite your guests, family, and friends to worship with us. This is a guest friendly time of worship and praise.

Third, the weekend of December 28-29. We will not have Saturday night service December 28. This is the only regularly scheduled Saturday night when we do not meet. Also, we will not have Connect Groups for Sunday, December 29. We will have two worship services Sunday at the normal times for the whole family.

Once we turn the calendar to January 2, we will begin our normal meetings at their normal times, including Tuesday Men’s Breakfast and Wednesday Worship times.

Fourth, Deacon ordination. Part of our worship for January 4-5, 2020, will be a time to pray over our newly ordained deacons, Syd Gibbs, Daniel Roberts, and Charles Paradelas.

Finally, “Who’s Your One?” Our sermon series for January and February will be an encouragement for you to pray for one person who doesn’t yet know the Lord. We will talk about prayer, God’s desire that everyone may be saved, and how we can help our “ones” know Christ. Would you begin praying now about who God would put before you to be your “one”?

Verse of the Day

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NIV)
