Some reminders ....
1. AGAIN, a big thanks goes out to the FBCO body ... 48 goodie trays yesterday as well as 7 families blessed with love, gifts, food, home supplies and YOU the people of FBCO!
2. If you have a MISSION ORONOGO prayer journal, please bring it on Wednesday or this Sunday, our Family hosts will use these journals as a followup tool with our MISSION ORONOGO families.
3. Wednesday night will be a full night! Our Student ministry will be serving the evening meal at 5:30pm-- they use this as a fundraising event for their summer mission trips and camps. Then, at 6:30pm our Children's Ministry will present, "An Unplugged Christmas". Following the program we will have a reception in The Gathering Place. Please make an effort to show our younger brothers and sisters in Christ your support.
4. The next 2 Sundays will be a little different -- we will only have a 10:00am Service! PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU GET THE WORD OUT TO ANY WHO MAY NOT BE ON THE EMAIL CHAIN OR ON FACEBOOK!
This past year was the first year I felt the LORD leading me to a yearly theme.... PURSUING GOD! Each week I asked the LORD to show me in His Word His message for the Church -- and each week the Word spoke of PURSUING HIM. This year, you will hear me speak of "FRESH ENCOUNTERS WITH OUR GOD" -- you may have already heard me speak of these ---- I have been doing a study written by Henry Blackaby called, "FRESH ENCOUNTER". The gist of the study is to lead us to experiencing God's power for Spiritual awakening. I don't know about you, but I want to experience God's power.... and not just every once in a while... but daily!
I had thought about having all of our adult Sunday School doing this study together ... for a number of reasons, that just wasn't going to work. But I know it is a study for the whole church ... so, Starting on Sunday January 8th at 4;30pm, I will be leading the study. it is a 7 week study. There will be a workbook ($2). IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING PLEASE LET ME KNOW ...
As we head into the final stretch of the holiday season, and as we close out another year, I pray the church will be focused on experiencing all that our LORD has offered. If I don't see ya this Sunday, Merry CHRISTmas!
