Prayers for those Hurting

Church family - please pray for some of our number who are hurting badly today. The Jones family and the Wilhelm family are both saying goodbye to loved ones.

And for the hurting - a quote I came across that helps me when walking a hard road -

"Never give up in the desert. You don't know how wide it is, and you may be almost across." (Donald S. Whitney)

It's HERE.

Remember that everything starts with the worship service at 10:30 AM. You'll love the music of the Inspired Band. And immediately after the service, you'll love the fellowship and food with brothers and sisters. You are welcome to bring a dish to pass at the fellowship if you want, but there will be plenty of chili and other goodies already on hand.

See you Sunday - RED HEART Sunday, that is! Wear something RED!

Oh... and always always always remember that...

You have FRIENDS at Friendship Bible Church!

Sometimes the pastor doesn't plan things out very well. I had not thought through the fact that the fellowship hall will be unavailable for Sunday School as will the sanctuary, where the Inspired Band will be setting up and doing sound checks.

SO... We are going to CANCEL the Sunday School hour for Red Heart Sunday. The worship service will start at 10:30, followed by the fellowship time immediately thereafter in Fellowship Hall.

WEAR SOMETHING RED!  INVITE SOME FRIENDS! And please share this announcement with any of your FBC family you see, so that all are informed.

Remember... You have FRIENDS at Friendship Bible Church!

OH... and by the way - THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHY WE NEED OUR PHASE 3 BUILDING PROGRAM!!!! Keep praying about that as well.

Time for Number 2!

The second of our 3 games nights will take place this Saturday, February 2nd, at 6:30 PM in Fellowship Hall. The first was a blast, and I'm sure this one will be too.

Bring a few of your favorite board games or card games (family / Christian friendly, please), and enjoy a relaxed evening with friends. 

If you are able, bring some munchies to share - chips, cookies, etc., or some pop to share. 

This is a family / kid friendly activity, so bring them all along!

Remember... always remember... You have friends at Friendship Bible Church!

No church today?

Our church in Randolph, along with many others around us, found it necessary to cancel the regular Lord's Day services due to weather.


Don't let this snowy Lord's Day get away without spending some time worshipping the Lord of the day.

John was exiled on Patmos, and took time there in that lonely place to worship. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, (Revelation 1:10 NKJV)

Paul and Silas were stuck in prison, and took time to hold their own little church service there. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. (Acts 16:25 NKJV)

So my brothers and sisters, in between shoveling snow and warming up in front of the fire, let's shovel out a little time for the Lord - read from His Word, breathe a prayer of thanks for His blessings, worship Him today... wherever you may be.
