Here We Go Again!

It's another busy weekend here at FBC. You've probably already got this on your calendar, but let me remind you of what's happening, just in case!

Saturday - 9:00 AM - NOON - The Randolph Farmer's Market.
If you're signed up to help this week, we will set up our booth at 8:45. Even if you're not signed up to help, stop by and say hello. We'll be there giving out coffee and water, and hopefully living water as well!

Saturday - 6:00 PM
- Our second campfire fellowship of the summer. Join us for food, fun and fellowship at the home of Bud and Linda. Bring a covered dish to share and your lawn chairs. Oh, and limber up those corn hole and horse shoe throwing muscles, for their will be opportunity to use them. And the volleyball tournament is on, if you dare. See you there!

Sunday - We will hear from missionary John James with Village Missions. John will be sharing the unique and interesting ministry of this mission organization in both his message, and his video presentation.

You might be on TV

If you attended our recent campfire fellowship, that is...

If you have Time Warner Cable, check out channel 528 - the Local Events section. Interesting! Thanks to Sister Linda for this! The next Campfire Fellowship is only a few days away. Join us!

For those who are following the Pastor's Masters with baited breath, it will interest you to know that the standings are really tightening up. And believe it or not, the Pastor actually beat out everybody to win round 2!

The next round of the Pastor's Masters will take place in August. Join us!

As always, don't forget this week's events -

Wednesday Evening Prayer Meeting - 6:30 PM
Saturday Morning - Farmer's Market - 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM

Oh What A Time!

If you missed our first Campfire Fellowship a few days ago, you missed a great time. Check here for some pictures. The fish were biting, the volleyball was awesome, the horseshoes were relaxing, and the cornhole was a blast. Oh, and did I mention that we had the best chicken in the world?

We'll have another later this month. Don't miss it!

Happenings for the week

This week is busy busy busy.

Please pray for the kids who are away at camp this week at Camp Carl... and pray for mom and dad, too as they deal with the absence.

Don't forget prayer meeting tonight - Wednesday - 6:30 PM. Join us as we pray for one another.

New officers were approved last Lord's Day. We have a new secretary and a new treasurer, as well as several new deacons and deaconesses. Pray for them as their transition began this week.

Saturday will be our third go-round with the Farmer's Market. So far, we've been giving away about 90 free cups of coffee per week. Pray that we will be able to give away more gospel tracts and that this effort will result in greater outreach into our community.

Since it's the 4th of July weekend, Haven of Rest will be cancelled Saturday. We'll resume that ministry next month.

And finally, remember that this coming Lord's Day will include our Noisy Offering! Remember to bring your change.
