Maybe we should ignore prayer meeting this evening...

... or maybe not.  

Some quotes from Spurgeon to remind us why we do it:

“No man can progress in grace if he forsakes prayer.” 

"Come, believer, and get all your need supplied; ask largely, and you will receive largely."

"It is in the spirit of prayer that our strength lies! And if we lose this, the locks will be shorn from Samson and the Church of God will become weak as water. And though, we, as Samson did, go and try to shake ourselves as at other times, we shall hear the cry, “The Philistines are upon you,” and our eyes will be put out, and our glory will depart unless we continue mighty and earnest in prayer." 

“Because He's the living God, He can hear. Because He's a loving God, He will hear." 

When was the last Wednesday evening you came and prayed with your brothers and sisters at FBC? Whether it was last week or last year or never, you can join us tonight! We will meet at 6:30, and we're always done by 7:30.

Has spring sprung early?

It sure looks like it if the weather forecast for Saturday can be believed. The birds will be singing and the sap will be flowing, and I'm guessing we'll all be enjoying the warm day.

And there are two very cool things you can be part of on that beautiful day.

First, the monthly Men's Prayer Breakfast will occur at 8:00 AM Saturday morning. If you haven't attended one of these yet, you are missing out on one of the wonders of the world. I've given up trying to come up with superlatives to describe the food that our wonderful cooks prepare for us at these breakfasts. You may think you've had breakfast before, but I guarantee you you haven't had better than this... or even close to it.  JOIN US FOR THE FOOD IF FOR NO OTHER REASON. But there is more to it than that - fellowship with brothers of like faith... iron sharpening iron as we talk about the Christian walk. And of course there is a time for prayer and looking into the word.  It's the PERFECT way to start a beautiful day on Saturday.  Join us?  Invite a friend? There is always enough food for far more than attend, so invite invite invite.

Secondly, our annual winter bowling party will take place Saturday afternoon.  Meet us at Kent Lanes on SR43 in Kent from 2:00-4:00 PM.  Pizza and refreshments are included, and it's always a great time.  IF YOU DIDN'T MANAGE TO GET SIGNED UP BUT STILL WANT TO ATTEND, you can contact Deeannae Egli directly at 330-472-9491 ASAP so she can ensure we have enough pizza.  

So there you have it - two great ways to spend one great Saturday!

Remember - You have FRIENDS at Friendship Bible Church!

Family movie night!

"The Atheist Delusion" is good for Everyone from Christian to atheist and every shade in between; agnostic, catholic, Jehovah witnesses, unstable teenager, you name it! Unfortunately there are no food or beverages allowed in the sanctuary so please come with your bellies already full!

After the movie you can stay behind for a short devotion where you can ask any questions you have about the Bible's truth of how the universe came to be.

Hope to see you there!
