Letter to Faith Church – March 2014

Letter to Faith Church – March 2014

It was disappointing that we had to cancel services this past Sunday. Hopefully, everyone stayed safe and warm. The message that I prepared for Sunday worship is available here, and we plan to have DVD copies available on Sunday.

Since we didn’t gather this past Sunday, I wanted to especially remind you of some important events that are taking place this upcoming Sunday:

 

Spring Forward

This Saturday evening is the annual day that we move our clocks ahead one hour.

I want to encourage you to plan to set your clock forward Saturday night and get plenty of rest for our Bible Study & Worship on Sunday.

 

Men’s & Women’s Bible Studies

This Sunday, a 6 week Bible Study will kick-off for men and women. The women’s group will be led by Linda Alvis through the book Lies Women Believe. I will take the Men through Fight, Winning the Battles that Matter Most. We will have both books available for only $5 each, but you do not need to purchase the book to participate in the study. The women will meet in what is usually the Adult Sunday School Class’ room and the Men will meet in the room that is commonly used by the Young Adult Class. I’m excited about these classes, and I pray that they’ll be helpful.

 

Church Business Meeting

We have received insurance money to make repairs to the basement following the drainage backup incident in early January. The board has recommended that as we work to make repairs, we also make some changes to the layout that will better benefit our current ministries and classes.

Additionally, the board recommends that the church consider replacing the sanctuary pews with chairs similar to those used in our classrooms. This recommendation is based on the belief that the chairs: could provide more seating in the sanctuary, could be moved if services need to be held in the gymnasium during a time of renovation and/or expansion, could be added to for special services such as Easter, & could be moved into a new sanctuary years from now.

 

Looking forward to worshipping with you this Sunday!

Letter to Faith Church

I am so very excited about this Fall at Faith Church! God blessed us with a great summer in ministry together and I can not wait to see what is in store for the next couple of months.

There are 4 things I want to make sure everyone knows about:

Anniversary Sunday

On Sunday November 4th Faith Church will celebrate her 30th anniversary. It was the first Sunday in November of 1982 when our church transitioned from “mission status” to self-supporting church. I am looking forward to this day as we celebrate God’s faithfulness to us for more than 30 years. I hope you plan to join us!

Parking Lot

Our parking lot expansion project has been completed! For the past month, we have had plenty of parking spaces- plenty of room for our neighbors, friends, family, and co-workers to join us for worship.

To move forward with the project this summer, we borrowed $10,000 from our Church savings with the plan of paying this money back in the months to come. We have already made 2 payments of $1,000 back into savings!

Hail Damage

Just as work on the parking lot got started, we suffered heavy hail damage to the roofs of the church, gym, parsonage, and shed. We have received funds from our insurance company to make repairs, and we are currently working to hire and schedule work to begin on the church roof. The roof of the church is the most critical since the hail caused immediate leaks. In order to save funds, we are considering tackling the smaller tasks of repairing the parsonage and shed with our church volunteers. If you would be willing to help with this project, please let me or one of our trustees know.

December 1st Foundations Class

The Foundations class covers the basics of what we believe at Faith Church. This class is a great resource for both people who are new to faith in Jesus Christ and people who are new to Faith FWB Church. The class lasts a couple of sessions with breaks and even lunch.

This class is a pre-requisite to becoming a member at Faith Church, but you do not have to be seeking membership to attend.

Church Retreat 2012

A couple of weeks ago 30 of our people trekked up to Temple Hills in Lynnville for a retreat. It was a blast, it built community, and challenged us spiritually. I am already looking forward to the next one. Here is a video of the fun that we had.

Favorite Tweets of February

If Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriends could write music and play the guitar, I wonder if we’d think SHE is the crazy one.

If God in his wisdom decided you’d never have a huge church & you’d minister in obscurity, would you be okay with that?
