Something to think about:

A Word from the Pastor - March 2014

Prayer changes things! Do you believe that statement? James 5:16b tells us that “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” How committed are you to prayer?

In fourteenth-century England there were holy women who placed themselves in little rooms at the base of churches and gave themselves to this kind of prayer. They prayed for the church and its members, and the extension of the kingdom of God. These women were called by the quaint but telling name of “anchoress,” for they were spiritual anchors that held the church amid the storms of that century.

If we are going to experience the blessings of God in this church, we need spiritual anchors. This calls for fervent unceasing prayer to the God of Heaven who can do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or think. Listen to 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and PRAY and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

I call upon you as the people of God to give yourself to unceasing prayer for this the Lord’s church and her mission in this world!

In Christ,

Bro. Richard

Music Notes

Dear brothers & sisters,

Just a short (I promise) note on some upcoming events.

On Saturday, March 8, we’ll be hosting the Focus on the Family Date Night Challenge. We would love to have as many people attend as possible, so by all means invite your friends, families, neighbors, or complete strangers—all are welcome! If you would, just let us know by Thursday the 6th so we can be sure to have enough food. (That could be an issue.)

The adult choir will be presenting The Risen Christ, our Easter program, the evening of Palm Sunday, April 13. This will allow us to keep Easter evening clear for time with your family. The Wednesday prior (April 9), the Children’s Choir will be presenting a small Easter program during prayer meeting. You won’t want to miss it!

We're looking to start up another session of Centershot, hopefully in April (so as to be done by the end of May, in time for summer break for the schools). If you think you might be interested in serving as a discipleship leader and/or as an archery instructor (we'll provide the certification training), please let me know!

That’s all I have for this month. As always, if you’re thinking, “Choir or praise team sounds like something I might enjoy,” there is no audition process, three-stage interview, blood sampling, or other such obligation involved—just come! We rehearse every Wednesday at 7:30 (right after prayer meeting) and would love to have you with us.

In Him,

Bro. Michael


FBC Mission Update

Week of Prayer for North American Missions &
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is March 2nd-9th.
 
Our Annie Armstrong Goal for 2014 is: $5,000.00
  • Why Give to Annie Armstrong? Because three of four people in North America are lost. One hundred percent of dollars given to the AAEO go to support thousands of missionaries and their ministries in the United States and Canada.
  • Don't Miss it! During the month of March our church will be celebrating the North American Missions Emphasis through (video segments, special prayer emphasis, special worship/message). Don't miss out on this special time of learning how Southern Baptists are doing whatever it takes to share the gospel in the U.S. and Canada.
  • North American Missionaries: Though their stories and methods vary, our missionaries are doing whatever it takes to share the gospel with North America. Whether it is starting a new church, meeting the needs of the homeless, or leading Back Yard Bible clubs, missionaries depend on the faithful prayers and generosity of Southern Baptists. Please pray for our missionaries and give generously to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering®.
