The First Prayer Breakfast

Did you know, that the first prayer breakfast took place along the sea of Galilee? Did you know, that Jesus led the first prayer breakfast? It's true.

Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” (John 21:12 NKJV)

So, I ask you, what could be more Biblical than Prayer Breakfast?

Men, join us Saturday morning at 8 o'clock in Fellowship Hall, as we obey Jesus' words and eat breakfast together. We will fortify our bodies with the best breakfast ever produced, and we will fortify our souls with the time of fellowship and prayer with our brothers in Christ.

Crazy Love

Just finished reading this book, "Crazy Love", by Francis Chan. Interesting and convicting read, which I recommend. But only read it, if you want to get serious about your Christian walk.

Teens - Change of Plans

Ali's mom suffered a serious accident tonight, and is in intensive care in Youngstown. Therefore, we'll be canceling the teen event for tomorrow evening. We'll do it again in May.

In the meantime, please keep both Ali and her mother in your prayers this weekend.

A Prayer

"O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need for further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, so that I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, 'Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away.' Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long." (A. W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God (Camp Hill, PA: WingSpread, 2007))

Youth News

This Saturday, starting at 7:00, gather at Josh and Ali's place!

Food and drinks are there. Wii is there! Bring your own game system, or your favorite games, and join in the fun.

Since Josh and Ali live a ways from the church, carpooling might be wise. If anybody needs a ride, call the church and we will arrange it.

Remember the poor this Easter weekend

Drop by the Haven of Rest at 10:00 Saturday morning, and help set up and serve with Friendship Bible Church. We will have you out of there by noon, and you'll be able to rejoice in knowing that you helped those less fortunate than you this wonderful holiday weekend.

The Best Time Of The Year

It started last Lord's Day as we celebrated a wonderful Palm Sunday service.

It continues this Friday evening, as we gather to remember what the Lord did for us on the cross of Calvary during our Good Friday service, which starts at 7 o'clock. Come a little bit early if you'd like to hear some good music before the service.

Finally, Sunday morning, the greatest day of the year, we gather to remember, celebrate and rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Easter services begin with breakfast at 9:30, followed by the morning worship service at 10:30.

Join your friends at Friendship Bible Church for the most exciting and wonderful weekend of the year!
