Gauging Interest

People are hurting and needing in Houston. We will be collecting funds to send their way starting this coming Lord's Day. Please prayerfully consider if you can help toward that end. We are also gauging interest on taking a group down for a few days to help. We are in contact with Samaritan's Purse and are hoping to hear back shortly on whether they can use a group from FBC. There will be a sign up sheet available this Lord's Day at the church. If you would be interested in going to Houston to help with the clean up efforts, please get your name on that list.

Details to follow!

This evening, we will PRAY and we will PERSUADE... we will SUPPLICATE and we will STAMP... we will APPEAL TO God, and we will APPEAL TO our neighbors....

That's right, this evening immediately following the regular midweek prayer meeting, we will be stamping and labeling postcards to send into our community for Old Fashioned Sunday. Having done this several times down through the years, I can honestly say that I don't remember a time when we sent these invitations out into Randolph and Atwater and Rootstown and Mogadore and beyond, without seeing some results from the effort. I can't wait to reach that heavenly shore, and see who is there because they received a postcard from Friendship Bible Church.

Where - FBC Fellowship Hall
When - 7:30 - immediately following prayer meeting (Which starts at 6:30 if you'd REALLY like to accomplish something big tonight - come to prayer meeting and THEN the stamping party!)

Will you join us and help? Usually, we are finished in 30 minutes. We will have some light refreshments and beverages on hand to keep your strength up during the sustained effort of stamping and labeling. And that 30 minutes you devote to trying to win souls in our community will reap eternal rewards.

... which means it's PRAYER MEETING DAY. 

What have you got better to do between 6:30-7:30 this evening? Let's all ponder that question, and try to join our brothers and sisters in prayer this evening. We start right at 6:30, and end no later than 7:30. 

One hour. One hour that can change your life. One hour that can change our world. 

"If my people... will only pray..."

Old Fashioned Sunday

It's only 5 weeks away now, and the planning and preparation is in high gear. The tent is on order, the musicians are tuning up, the old fashioned preacher is preparing his famous sermon, the auction tables are being prepared, the antique car folks are shining up their beautiful machines, the prizes for the winner of the pie contest and old fashioned costume contest are ready, and the games and food and fun that always mark Old Fashioned Sunday are in the works.

All that's left is for YOU to mark your calendar and make sure you don't miss this most enjoyable and blessed of days. September 10th at 10:30 AM.

BTW - If you would like to help us with the planning and preparation, there will be another meeting just after the worship service this Lord's Day in Fellowship Hall. Join us and help us reach our community for Christ on Old Fashioned Sunday!
