This coming Lord's Day, we will be privileged to hear from a representative of the Gospel For Asia mission board. There will be a free book provided for all in attendance.

Join us!

Spring Cleaning

Don't forget, tomorrow (Saturday), at 10:00, we will be gathering to clean up the church building and grounds. There is plenty to do both inside and outside to make the Lord's house sparkle. Will you join us? Bring your brooms, mops, shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, cleaning supplies... anything you think might help, and join us at 10:00. If a lot of people will each do just a little bit, nobody has to work hard, and a lot gets done!

See you on clean up day!

Prayer Request

Calling all friends of FBC - here is a prayer request for you.

"Call unto me," God says, "and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things that thou knowest not." (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV)

As most know, we are in the midst of a large project to tie our church building into the new sewer system running down S.R. 44. We have been wonderfully blest in that a particular friend of the church is performing the work for free. God is good.

Now, however, there is a bureaucratic issue that is holding up the project, and which may cost the church approximately $5000.00. Please pray today that God will move those in authority to stop this hold up so we can proceed with the project without this additional cost.

Wednesday Prayer Meeting

It looks like the pastor won't be back in town in time for the Wednesday prayer meeting this week, so let's just cancel it. Please take some time Wednesday evening to pray for one another, and we'll reconvene the prayer meeting next week.

This Lord's Day, we will be blessed to hear from Sam Guilliam, a representative of the Northwest Haiti Christian Missions organization. Friendship Bible Church has supported this missionary effort for some time, now, and we look forward to Bro. Sam's report.

You can learn more about this ministry here.

Bro. Sam will share in the Sunday School hour at 9:30, and he will preach and share a multimedia presentation in the worship service at 10:30. Immediately following the worship service, all are invited to join us for a "Meet the Missionary" lunch in fellowship hall.

One of our main goals for 2009 is to increase our emphasis on fulfilling the great commission... missions. This Sunday's service is one step in reaching that goal. Will you join us?

Haven of Rest

Just one more post for today...

Several of our number were blessed in attending the Haven of Rest banquet this past Monday evening. Great food and a great program! As always, I came away from that event impressed with the Haven's ministry.

Well, we have our monthly opportunity to participate in that ministry this Saturday at 10:00. Meet at the Haven of Rest and help others in need. God will bless you for it.

Spring Forward!

Don't forget that this weekend is "spring forward" weekend. Set that clock ahead one hour before you turn in Saturday night. And how 'bout turning in an hour earlier than normal, so the devil won't be able to use that lost hour of sleep to keep you from church on the Lord's Day! Use that DVR... or that VCR... or just ignore that last TV program. ;-)

See you Sunday!
