A Word from the Pastor
Every single one of us seems to be wired to finish things. We will finish another person’s sentences. We will make sure we take the last, scrumptious bite. We won’t stop watching until the buzzer sounds, and the game is over. Something about us desires completion. That’s why this week’s sermon will be of such interest because we will hear and study the concluding cry that Jesus gave from the cross. Jesus’ words brought completion.
We stand in awe,

Holy Wednesday Service
As a part of our worship services on Easter Sunday, we will have a special time, during our worship, called the Living Cross. We ask everyone to bring a fresh-cut, long-stemmed flower to adorn the crosses at the altar. Remember stores are normally closed on Easter morning.
Pickle ball will soon be coming to a Family Life Center near you. If you want to participate in this weekly activity, register with Rebecca Clopp in the Family Life Center.
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.
Good News Clubs
We are hosting a Good News Club for Bowie Elementary and we had almost 50 children this past week. We are looking for five or six volunteers to help shepherd the children. If you can help, please contact Cathy Byrne or Lillie Osborne.
National Day of Prayer
We are looking for helpers to assist in making sack lunches for all the participants who will come for the noon prayer on Thursday, May 5, for the National Day of Prayer. FBC will be assembling and preparing the sandwiches and the sack lunches.
We are looking for smiling faces to welcome families, students, and children to our facility. You can assist families with check-in, collect information from guests, and help guide visitors to the appropriate
class or group.
Clothes Closet Ministry
We need people to sort through clothes donations. If you would like to help, contact Cleita Ferrell or Jeff Fitzhugh.
There are two ways to help our bus ministry. First, you can drive a bus route. Second, you can pick someone up on your way to church. Don’t let the lack of transportation keep someone from experiencing the blessing of Christian fellowship. To help, contact the Church Office or Stan Osborne.
