Welcome to worship! I am so glad you are here. Today we will discuss the amazing Old Testament account of Moses and Pharoah. However, I want to share something else with you that I read:
“As church attendance numbers fade across the nation and online services become very convenient, it’s important to remember why church attendance for you and your family matters so much. You can’t serve from your sofa. You can’t have community of faith on your sofa. You can’t experience the power of a room full of believers worshipping together on your sofa. Christians aren’t consumers. We are contributors. We don’t watch. We engage. We give. We sacrifice. We encourage. We pray by laying hands on the hurting. We do life together. The church needs you. And you need the church.”
Proud to be your pastor,
Reception for Marjorie Bentz

PURSUING PEACE EFFORTS
Remember that FBC has been given a church-wide assignment that lasts for the next 2 weeks. This assignment can be picked up on the landing outside the sanctuary. Please be faithful to participate EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Personal Prayer: Focus on Colossians 3:12-13.
Also, mark your calendars for March 23 when we begin Phase 2.
Letter from J & Lucy Waterman
Words cannot explain the love and care we felt last Sunday night. We were overwhelmed with your presence, hugs, and tears. This Sunday we will be worshipping 80 miles away, but our hearts will be in Corsicana. After 52 years you are our family and we have so many wonderful memories of those years. My verse: “I am the Lord your God who will hold your right hand and say to you, do not fear, I will help you.” (Isaiah 41:13) will be a guide to anyone who needs God’s presence. We do not know what tomorrow holds, but we know who holds our hand. We will be living at the Conservatory at Keller Town Square.
With so much love and appreciation,
J & Lucy Waterman
