     The Wednesday Dinners  are back starting September 5th. If you are able and have the time, please prayerfully consider helping this year. The more cooking teams we have, the less times you will cook. We currently have 5 cooking teams in the fall and spring, and only 4 teams during the winter, so we are stretched pretty thin. We also can always use more help with cleanup after the meals on Wednesday. Wiping tables, dish washing, etc. If you can help please contact the office, or call Kenny Ball at 682-7256

   Prayer Circle:         Everyone is welcome!   What is intercessory prayer?    It is praying on the behalf of others.  All Christians have the Holy Spirit in their hearts and just as Jesus intercedes for us in accordance with God’s will, we are to intercede for one another.  (Romans 8:26-27)  Prayer Circle meets on Sunday evening at 5:30 in the conference room at the top of the ramp.   It’s meant as a time of intercessory prayer for our church, it’s staff, it’s members, it’s activities and actions.  Anyone who wants to come pray is welcome.  You do not have to pray openly, but if you would like to, please feel free to do so.  If you are unable to attend, please set a time apart to pray for God’s guidance for our church each week.   Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to Me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”

  CARD MINISTRY OPENING …One never knows when something small like receiving an encouraging card in the mail will brighten a day.  Are you someone who would like to be involved in getting the cards organized and set out?  If so, contact Jan Hollis.  We have lots of cards waiting to be sent; some are in the hymnal racks while others can be found in the library foyer. We have ladies who are sending to our nursing home residents and for birthdays.  Who will you send a card to? You might look around to see who is missing or you might focus on a specific group…maybe SS teachers.

   FBC 150th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION…2021!   We are hoping to get stories about members…both past and present to help us “tell our story.”  Some of you have promised to share stories, and a few neat ones have come in, but we need more!  Tell about something that just happened that will uplift or amuse, or tell about something you heard or remember from past years.  For instance, Jeana Calloway-Hodson wrote about the impact Betty Chiles has had on her life as a young pastor’s wife.  How the lights went out as Rev. Howard E. White was presenting flowers one Mother’s Day and Art Allen’s reaction was priceless!  A collection envelope is located under the bulletin board in the library foyer.
