Announcements
Email from the Pastor - Holy Week
Hi Church,
For us here at FBC, Holy Week begins tonight at 6 p.m. when we gather in the Fellowship Hall for a soup and bread dinner, afterward, at 7, we will go upstairs to the sanctuary for our worship service which will consist of scriptures being read from Matthew, the singing of songs and the celebration of Holy Communion.
 
On Saturday there will be an opportunity for parents and children to gather in the Fellowship Hall for lunch, cookie decorating, and weather permitting, and Easter Egg Hunt. Gather at 11 a.m.
 
Sunday starts early with the sunrise service down at the Grand River Center at 6:00 a.m. The day concludes with our regularly scheduled worship at 10.
 
That's a full four days giving individuals ample opportunity to worship the God who saved them when they were far from deserving to be saved. As John writes in his Gospel:
 
This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one would need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life." John 3:16
 
We, the church, are his body. This week, above all weeks, we can respond with thanks by gathering together and saying thanks!
 
Hope to see you at some of these events.
Blessings!
He is risen!

Email from the pastor - Sunday, April 7
Greetings,
What a simply glorious day! This has been a long time coming. Thank God for days like this.
 
This Sunday is our last Sunday in Lent being that the next Sunday is referred to as Palm Sunday [April 14]. The sermon is called "A Fragrance of Life" and it's corresponding text is John 12:1-8.
 
This Sunday is special for two reasons: First, we will be celebrating communion. Time to worship and give thanks in a different manner than usual. Second, we will have our fellowship meal following the morning worship. Please bring a dish to pass. But, if you are unable to bring something, please stay and have table fellowship anyway.
 
This week's fbc@home is attached. I need to make a change on the announcement about Maundy Thursday. We will have a soup supper at 6:00 p.m. and then adjourn for a worship service at 7:00.
 
Also, due to a mix-up in when the sun rises on Easter Sunday [not my fault ... whew!], the service will now start at 6:00 a.m. instead of the previously posted 6:30. Again, the new time is 6:00 a.m.
 
There are lots of other things to read about so dig into this week's issue.
Blessings!
