Monday’s Moments…

“Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ's love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture… None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. Romans 8:35-37 (MSG)

This Sunday we will conclude our Sermon Series on “Who Are You?” with a lesson on Living In Victory With Christ, which will include taking to heart the promise of the scripture above.

As we conclude this series, we also begin our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox season as we distribute shoeboxes and information for you to fill and encourage a child about Jesus this Christmas. Join us for worship this Sunday and grab a shoebox… let’s pray for our service, invite a friend, and expect a blessing this Sunday at FBC!

This Sunday there will be a “Ladies Salad Luncheon” after worship along with a hilarious video session from Chonda Pierce. This promises to be a wonderful opportunity for ladies fellowship and encouragement. Please bring a salad to share. See attached flyer… all ladies are welcome! (Us lonely and hungry guys will go eat Chinese in their absence)

Finally, Country Church Sunday is Coming up on Oct. 27th! Put on your finest country clothes, bring a dish or two, and a friend or two, and join us at FBC as we celebrated the harvest season and the fall showcase of God’s glory… Yee Haw!

Monday’s Moments…

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalm 139:14

We began a mini-series yesterday called: “Who Are You?” Which are biblical lessons about our favor and identity in Christ. This coming Sunday we’ll be looking at scripture that helps us remember and realize that we really are God’s workmanship… forgiven and favored by His work, not ours. So, If you need a little encouragement, or know of someone who does… this is a great series to be a part of as we worship the wonder of Christ in us, and what He truly feels towards us. If you missed last Sunday’s service, you can always log onto www.fbcbuckner.org and listen online. We hope to see you Sunday, and bring a friend!

Monday’s Moments…

“And my (our) God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever.” – Philippians 4:19-20

We can often get distracted and consumed with our needs… especially, if there seems to be a lack of provision in our immediate situation – financially, physically, or emotionally. The above verse reminds us that God has always, and will always meet our needs He IS faithful, even when we are not.

This makes for a good opportunity to exercise our faith and thanksgiving in God’s provision at FBC… the past few summer months have been slim in attendance and giving, and our finances have reflected such. God has always provided for us, and will continue to do so, but He often uses the faithful stewardship of His people to accomplish the needs of His church – this applies to our attendance as well as our giving as we keep the lights on, and doors open to be a place of worship and comfort for our community. I am always grateful for our entire FBC family and your faithfulness… and if it’s been awhile since you’ve joined us in worship – know you are always welcome at FBC, a place to call home! :-)

Don’t forget about our upcoming Mayor’s Christmas Tree Dinner & Auction on Saturday, Oct. 5th at Heart of God, 5:00pm. Tickets are available at our church office and Central Bank for $12.00 each, and include a grand prize cash drawing, along with two tickets to the Dinner Theatre during the auction. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $15.00

Finally, the Christmas cookies are gone – but there is still a seat for you in our Christmas Choir. We are practicing on Sunday’s at 5:00pm and hope you’ll join us then!

Coming Up:

  • Every Wednesday – TeamKids at 5:45, Youth Group & Adult Prayer Meeting, 6:00pm
  • Christmas Choir Rehearsals – Sunday’s at 5:00pm
  • Sunday Night Series – “Traveling Light” by Max Lucado – a study in the 23rd Psalm, 6:00pm
  • Mayor’s Christmas Tree Dinner & Auction at H.O.G. Saturday, Oct. 5th, 5:00pm. Tickets $12.00 in advance and available at our church office
