Monday’s Moments…

It goes without saying, but “Baby It’s Cold Outside!” (Someone should write a song about this).  Please be careful and mindful of the weather conditions outside, and check on those around you or who sit next to you in church – there is a lot of sickness and ministry needs we can be a praying about during these blustery winter days. 

If you find time on your hands, take out your church directory and leaf through the pictures of our FBC family.  Find a name or two and pray for them, or even send a note of encouragement.  Remember, we are a family – we need to lift each other up… we are better when we are together – in body or spirit!

We started our winter sermon series last Sunday on developing “Helpful Holy Habits”… this week we’ll continue as we look at the value of knowing and reading God’s Word. 

Remember, If you miss a Sunday, you can usually find our worship service and listen online by visiting our church website:  www.fbcbuckner.org 

You can also view announcements, information, and give online from our website as well.

This week’s verse: “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”  - Col. 2:6-7

Monday’s Moments…

“With all this going for us, my dear friends, stand your ground.  Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for Him is a waste of time or effort.”  1st Cor. 15:58 (MSG)

What a great verse (and translation) to begin our New Year of ministry at FBC.  We are the body of Christ… He works in and through us, and all we do – we do for Him. Nothing we do in the name of Christ is wasted effort.  We all matter, We all make a difference, We are all called to minister, and we are better when we are together!

This Sunday we begin a new sermon series on developing (or maintaining) “Helpful Holy Habits”, as it pertains to practicing Christ-likeness in our lives.  Join us for this insightful and helpful series as participate in what the bible calls “iron sharpening iron” as we grow and journey together.

Congratulations to our Sonshine Preschool Ministry!  Last week was the one year anniversary of opening our doors to this new ministry focused towards the young families in our community.  I am so pleased with Bonnie and our preschool teachers, along with our Preschool Board in all that they have accomplished this past year in building this outreach/inreach effort.  To date we have 32 children enrolled and we employ 8 workers to meet the growing needs of our preschool.  You can find out more about our preschool enrollment or employment opportunities by visiting our website at: www.fbcbuckner.org 

We are also in the beginning stages of developing a “Preschool Scholarship Fund” to help parents with the financial part of paying for preschool if a financial crisis arrives.  This is an important part of doing ministry as a church, and it is important we support and help as we can.  Many of these children need the love and learning they get from our preschool, and we don’t want to dis-connect from these families over finances.  Any donations you choose to make can be done through giving to the church and designating your gift as “Preschool Scholarship” and is considered a tax-free contribution.  Our School board will administer these funds based upon an application process.

Men’s Breakfast is this Saturday at 8:00am… All men and boys welcome, and bring a friend!

Finally, our church is a wonderful giving church!  Thank you for your gifts and cards over the past Christmas season, and thank you for helping us meet and exceed our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering goal of $2,501.00  To date we have collect over $2700.00 – Job well done and thank you for encouraging the kingdom cause!

Please Pray This Week:

  • Health & Recovery - Nadine Boman, Jerry Hickson, Terri Robbins, Colton Eshleman, Howard Young, Jim Tanis, Betty Johnson
  • Homebound – Joann Miles, Cathy Bishop, Joyce Brammer, Jerry & Judy Buttress, Joann Drummond, Mary Schmidt
  • FBC – Preschool, Sunday School, Faithfulness and Finances

Praise Him!
