We believe in EVERYONE giving. When we meet Jesus, we no longer are called to consumerism, but instead are commissioned to give like Jesus gave to us. Starting on October 30th through November 18th, we will be taking donations for our yearly Serve a Bird outreach to provide Thanksgiving dinners to those in need. Partner with us as we strive toward our existence of reaching people to know God. Below is a list of items we need to be donated:
canned green beans
jar of turkey gravy
boxes of stuffing
boxes of mashed potatoes
boxes of cornbread mix
canned cranberry sauce
Monetary donations are also needed for the turkeys.
These items can be dropped off in front of the Serve Saturday Kiosk at the far end of the new auditorium.
Yesterday was the day we had all prayed for, prepared for, and hoped for. Actually, it was everything we dreamed of, and yet, so much more. When Pastor Terrell cast the vision of building a new addition, many of us realized that this would involve faith, service, and sacrifice on a new level. We knew that the dream is to reach people to know God. What we may have had less understanding of was the major blessing that this dream would bring. God's vision that he brought through our pastor is officially a reality, and we now sit here in awe of what God has done.
1244 IN ATTENDANCE
47 FIRST TIME GUESTS
14 CHANGED LIVES
All of these results are because of one incredible Savior. It is because of God alone that this life change is a reality. Today we are thankful for a God who never changes, yet renews us day by day. HE IS GOOD! Celebrate with us today by thanking God for all that He has done! We truly believe that with Jesus at the center, the best is yet to come!
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
Romans 10: 9-10
We see you.
We see you pick up your name tag. We see you give out that hug and extra smile. We see you literally run to make sure a guest has an umbrella. We see you register kids, clean spit up, pour coffee, hand out bulletins and stuff them. You are not unnoticed. We see how you listen, the way that you encourage, the way you give to all the people around you. You are seen, and you my friend.... You are beautiful! Isaiah 52:7 says: "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!"
So, We wanted to take a moment to say...
Thank you for believing in the vision of FC before it came to be. Thank you for not squandering your God-given gifts. Thank you for fighting against the enemy's attacks. Thank you for wanting to reach people to know God, inviting your friends, and getting your kids ready every Sunday morning (we know that last one is TOUGH!) Thank you for showing up even when you didn't feel like it. Thank you for smiling, even when you felt like crying. Thank you for trusting your leaders, but most of all, trusting Jesus. Yes, we do see you and the things you do. But what truly matters, is that HE sees you. And for that reason,
THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
"God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them."
Let's Celebrate Together!
