A Word from Our Pastor
Good morning, FBC Family!
This morning we welcome the Navarro College Girls Soccer Team to worship with us! Go Dawgs! We are so thankful to bring in different groups throughout the semester. Pray for these young ladies as they join us today!
In addition, in our 11:00 am service we will be baptizing two new believers from our Hispanic fellowship. We praise God for these ladies who are choosing to follow Jesus Christ!
We are also continuing our sermon series on the Gospel of Mark called “The reMARKable Life of Jesus!” Mark is an incredible book filled with stories about the life of Jesus.
Today’s message is about FAMILY. I want to talk to you about three of the greatest things in life: the greatest relationship; the greatest family; and the greatest goal—and I think this is going to be like, awesome.
Please listen for God to speak to you; please ready yourself to have an encounter with Him; and please prepare yourself to say “YES” to however He leads you.
