Compel Them!

Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (Luke 14:23 NKJV)

You can help your brothers and sisters reach out into the highways and hedges of Randolph. We are sending out over 2800 Invitations to our Easter services, and we need your help.

On Wednesday, March 26, immediately following prayer meeting, we will be stamping and labeling 2800 postcards.

Will you help? Many hands make the work go fast. Pizza and pop will be provided afterwards.

Men's Mania

Join your brothers for a wonderful prayer breakfast at 8:00 am and then pile in the maxi-van for a ride to Cabelas. Bring your wallet, for there is always something fun to buy at Cabelas.  We will stop for lunch on the way back, too.

Prayer Meeting Cancelled

I think it must be the Lord's will that we have prayer meeting from our homes this evening, so we are canceling prayer meeting. Please take a couple minutes and pray for your brothers and sisters around 630 this evening.

The So Vital Prayer Meeting

If it is true that “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph. 6:12), then we must pray, mustn’t we? Can there be any other way to reach a lost world? Do we really think our plans and programs can bring down dark strongholds of spiritual evil in the heavenly realms? (Ben Patterson)

Join us every Wednesday at 6:30 as we set aside 1 hour for prayer.  Pray for and with your brothers and sisters.  Make it a habit.  It's so important.

Thank You Teachers

How I thank God the faithful Sunday School teachers and Jr. Church workers at FBC. Only eternity will let us know the the results of your efforts to teach the gospel. Until then, hear some encouragement from Dr. Spurgeon:

We must have much patience with those we are trying to teach, and we must be willing to repeat over, and over, and over again the elements of truth. Someone asked a mother once, "Why do you teach your child the same thing twenty times?" She answered, very wisely, "Because I find that nineteen times are not sufficient;" and it will often be the same with those who need to be taught the A B C of the gospel.

Keep on. Teach on. Preach on. There is yet good soil to be found.
