  • FBC Free Movie Night - "The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

    This will be our last movie of 2018. We close out another successful year of movie watching by showing “The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey.” It is about a grouchy woodcarver who bonds with a boy while constructing a Nativity scene for him. The Movie begins at 6:30 p.m. and the popcorn and water are always free.

    Hello Church!
    We continue to wait expectantly in Advent during week two. Our text this week is found in the gospel of Luke 1:68-79. This is labeled, in many bibles, as Zechariah's Song. It is the song of joy on the birth of a miracle baby, John.
    This week we will begin collecting for the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering. In this age of mega churches and their wealthy pastors, we sometimes lose sight of the fact that many people have sacrificed in their ministry to the Lord and reach retirement without much of anything. Here is our opportunity to say thank you.
    Let me point out two items in the newsletter. The Sunday evening bible study will meet again at 6:00 p.m. If you didn't attend last week's study, you can attend this week's. It will look at Malachi 3:1-4.
    On Monday evening, at Pizza Ranch, there is a fundraiser for the Hempstead Boys Swim Team. I don't usually promote these sorts of things, but we have an unusual relationship with the team. First off, Rick Loeffelholz is the Head Coach. Second, they have helped us out the last few years by loading our truck for OCC. That has been a huge help. So, why not pay them back and enjoy some pizza at the same time. They will receive a percentage of profit from 5 p.m. to close.
