A Word from Our Pastor
Good morning, FBC!!!
Last Sunday we waved the checkered flag & supposedly finished the journey in our on-going mini-series on Joseph. But today, we’re going to take a “Victory Lap.” You see, there’s one last issue that we need to deal with before we complete our study of Joseph.
So let’s take a step back and remember the true Biblical definition of success…Success is finding and following God’s will for your life!
Let’s also remember that on life’s road to success, you will encounter plenty of frustrating situations like speed bumps, potholes, stop signs, and detours.
But now in this final lap we’re going to discuss another interesting element of the road…ROAD RAGE!!
Here we go,
Children’s worship is available in the 11 am service. Parents should sign in kids on the landing before service or when dismissed. Children can be picked up on the 4th floor.
VBS/VBX (July 17-21)
Volunteer training will be Sunday @ 5 pm in the Sanctuary OR Wednesday @ 6 pm on the 4th floor. Kids can still register at the VBS table or with the link below.
If you would like to help, we will begin decorating for VBS starting at 9 am tomorrow morning and continue throughout the week. Contact Cathy with any questions.
Pray that God would provide sufficient volunteers to carry out the VBS mission. Pray for good mental and physical health for all volunteers. Pray that the volunteers would have all the wisdom, skills, and resources required to carry out their God-given tasks in a manner that honors Him.

“THRIVING IN BABYLON”
These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they’re attacked on every front. It has all happened at warp speed, leaving many spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment?
Each week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we offer a class that emphasizes strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination. The class is led by Jimmie Buchanan, our local Body Recall expert.9 am in FLC.
