Monday’s Moments…

“For everyone born of the God overcomes the world. THIS is the VICTORY that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the on who believe that JESUS is the Son of God.” (1 John 5:4-5)

After last night’s game… This verse is a good reminder of what genuine victory is – our sins have been forgiven, and Satan has been defeated by the blood and name of JESUS – King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Know that Jesus has won & we have overcome!

Speaking of overcoming – if you missed Sunday’s worship, and our message on “Why Do Christians Suffer?” you can find a recording of our service by visiting our church webpage at: Most of our services and general information about our church and ministry can be found by clicking or visiting the website link.

Beginning this Sunday – we’ll start a new sermon series on the book of Acts titled: “Acts – A Blueprint of Church Ministry”. We’ll look at how the infant church grew and impacted their community even through times of opposition and persecution, and how we can apply the same ministry principles to our ministry at FBC. This series will help give us a historical and applicable insight and perspective.

This Wednesday (as the weather cooperates) we plan to resume First Kids and our weekly prayer meeting & bible study, as well as Sunday evening we’ll continue our video/bible study “Life Among The Pagans” which is study on Paul’s missionary journey through Athens, Corinth, and Greece. Although this study and story happened over 2000 years ago, the application and significance is the same today. Join us as we learn how to be more like Christ and share Christ in our community today.

Monday’s Moments…

“But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…” 1 Peter 3:15

Answers have been hard to come by these last few days… We’ve come from a season of Joy, to a New Year that has had more than our share of trouble, especially within the FBC Family… below you will find several prayer request, needs and concerns as we lift up those who are struggling and suffering. But even amid the trouble, we DO have an answer and we DO have hope – Our hope and answer in in the name Jesus – King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

With that in mind, I’ll be sharing a message this Sunday with the topic – “Why Does God Allow Suffering?” Now more than ever we need to be reminded of God’s provision, plan, and purpose. Come and see what the bible says about suffering and how God uses suffering in our lives for a purpose as “all things do work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” (Rom. 8:28) Come and join us as we worship and study together, and bring a friend!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Prov 3:5-6
