Then they seized Him and led Him away, bringing Him into the high priest’s house, and Peter was following at a distance. (Luke 22:54 ESV)

On Sunday we will continue our journey through the life of Simon Peter by examining two passages: Luke 22:54-62 & 24:1-12.  The purpose of the message, “Learning to Persevere,” is to realize the need for perseverance in the life of a Christian through the power of our resurrected Savior. We will hopefully see how these two events, not normally linked together, give us a great picture of how terrible failure can eventually turn into incredible hope for the future. Please read those two Scripture passages and join us Sunday at 10:30am!

Only 7 days to Trunk-or-Treat! The 9th annual trunk-or-treat will take place in the church parking lot (and fellowship hall for dinner) from 6:00 — 7:30pm on Thursday, October 31. Elizabeth is still looking for 10 more vehicles – can you help? Please be in prayer for this event – that we will be good neighbors and will shine as the light of the world. Pray for families, that they will read the gospel tracts and the literature about FBC and want to come back to know more! Please keep the candy coming – we are over 300 lbs., and the Beavers have a commanding lead! But there is still a week left Duck fans! We’d like to see another 100 lbs. And we are also in need of seven more people to donate 4 dozen cookies each (sign up sheet in the foyer). Thank you for teaming up to make this a special event. There will be a brief meeting after church this Sunday for Elizabeth to give some instructions and answer questions.

This Saturday evening, beginning at 5:30pm, is the Teen Challenge Western Shindig, which is their annual fundraiser. It is being catered this year by Bo Mack’s BBQ. We have a few people from the church who have purchased tables, and I’ve heard there is room for around 6 more people to attend. If you’re interested in a great meal (which is paid for) and a great time, please contact me (or Karen Joiner) ASAP!
