LET'S BE THANKFUL!  You can find greeting cards in the hymnal racks again.  Since a major theme each November is thanksgiving, the challenge is for you to let someone in the church family know that you appreciate what they do and that you are thankful for them and their witness.   A good place to start would be with our staff:  Gene Austin, Scott Westfall, Danelle Mathews, Jacki Stelzer, and John Luttrell.   But don't stop there; look around and find someone who you would like to encourage.  Let someone know that what they do makes a difference to you.  Take the challenge, bless someone, and be blessed as you go!


Brazil Missions FBC was able to send $382.00 to Pr. Ricardo to help with their Children’s Day outreach in the mission church in São Thomé das Letras.   Hi, everybody! We really appreciate your effort into helping us make the kid's party. Here in Brazil we celebrate the kid's day on October 12th and it is a great opportunity get closer to the families in São Thomé das Letras for sharing the gospel. We will throw 2 parties in different locations and it would not be possible without the donations of our partners and friends (Brazilian and Americans). As soon as we celebrate the two parties we will share the news and the pictures with you. Thank you for giving your hearts. Thank you for your prayers. Pr. Ricardo, Lidiane and Rafael.
