A Word from Our Pastor
Good morning, FBC!
Today is all about worship! Give God your best! Sing to Him and let His Spirit surround you. Today is also all about hearing God. Listen to His voice and let Him speak to your heart.
Our topic today is once again – Joseph! We are traveling with Joseph down his road to success, and his road wasn’t exactly straight. Joseph’s road was filled with detours: from technicolor coat to rock bottom in a pothole…from Daddy’s favorite to a mere slave…from head of the house to shackled in prison…from “remember me” to forgotten for two whole years! Detour after detour after detour!
And that’s how life is for all of us. It was like that for Joseph, and it’s still like that today. Life is filled with unexpected twists and turns.
Today, let’s learn what God has for us as we discuss these detours,

THRIVING IN BABYLON
New study starts this week!
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?
Come be a part of a new 5-session series titled, “Thriving in Babylon!”
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.
