   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   When we receive a card…especially one through snail mail…it reminds us that someone cares.  For a while cards have been available in the hymnal racks and on a shelf in the library foyer for your use in reaching out to say you care.  Pick one up today…perhaps even one each week… and mail it to someone you have missed,      someone who is ill or recuperating, or someone to whom you want to say thank you.  Missy Belshe has recently volunteered to oversee this ministry; watch for her new ideas about how to reach out.  For those of you who donate your extra cards, please keep them coming; they are a great help!

   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.
