Love From Your Pastor

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” (John 21:15 ESV)

This Sunday we will be “Learning to Start Again” with Peter as we dive into John 21:1-19. We will recognize the grace offered through Jesus’ love that allows us to start over after failure. Please read the passage and join us Sunday at 10:30!

Today is the day for Trunk-or-Treat! Please be in prayer for all of the children and families who will be here on our campus tonight (6:00–7:30pm). We will be serving hot dogs, chili, and cookies in the fellowship hall, and of course LOTS of candy in the parking lot! Thank you for all of your generous donations! If you are having a vehicle involved, remember that we are aiming to eat at 5pm, pray together at 5:30pm (in fellowship hall), and be ready to man our stations! Please remember to greet everyone with a smile and the love of Jesus!

This Sunday is also the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. We will be showing a moving video from Voice of the Martyrs and praying together for our brothers and sisters. Our long-time missionary to Senegal, Marilyn Escher will also be here both for Sunday School (9am in the worship center) and to share in the worship service. You won’t want to miss any of this!

Please also remember that we are receiving our annual FBC Anniversary Special Offering on November 17! This year we will be contributing funds to Haiti Foundation of Hope, due to all of the unrest and enormous challenges there, as well as the local chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship, which has been enduring some financial challenges while also searching for a new Director. Please consider a generous gift for these important ministry causes!

Lastly, the Men’s Group will begin a new 12 week study this Saturday on the Sermon on the Mount! Join us for prayer at 7am and the Bible Study at 7:45!
