On behalf our staff and leadership team, thank you for your participation and cooperation in making 2007 a memorable year of mission and ministry. Also, thank you for the Christmas cards, notes, goodies, and other gifts presented to our ministers and support staff during the holiday season.
As we begin 2008, we are building our ministries and activities on Our Church ROCKS: Recreation, Outreach, Commitment, Knowledge, and Stewardship.
To solidify our commitment to Christ and to broaden our biblical knowledge, we are inviting and encouraging all ages to take the 366 Challenge, a commitment to read all 69 books of the Bible in the 366 days of Leap Year. Planning guides to assist you in reading through the Bible are available through the church office and online on our web site at www.fbcp.org.
During our Winter Bible Study on Sunday evenings and Wednesday evenings in January, we will explore “The Epic Adventures of Job,” a study which will prepare us to deal with life’s diverse circumstances with an eye of faith.
The Dedication of the Paul Royal Recreation and Outreach Center is scheduled for Sunday afternoon January 27. Our students will move into the ROC on Sunday January 13, and other activities, including Upward and Body Recall will begin during the week following the dedication.
On Sunday December 30 you are invited to meet for Fellowship in the Atrium at 9:15. Worship begins in Chipley Hall at 10:00. During our worship service this Sunday we will be asking “Which Gifts Will You Return?” as we look into Isaiah 63: 7-9.
Remember that our Wednesday Family Dinners, Prayer Service, and Activities will resume on January 9.
Also as the New Year begins, watch for our new “promotional spot” on Channel 3 WEAR, our local ABC affiliate.
The beginning of the New Year presents great opportunities for us to reach people and strengthen believers. Leap into 2008 with radical faithfulness to the Lord!
