One Great Hour of Sharing

May brings us the OGHS offering from our denomination. Its purpose is to aide people all over the world in the midst of some emergency situation like earthquakes, hurricanes, pandemics, forest fires, and such. A letter has been sent out to all friends and members of FBC to explain it in more detail. Please pray about how you might be a part of 2021’s OGHS.

 

Pastoral Search Committee Update

We are entering a new chapter in the history of our church. After 21-years of ministry, pastor Tim and his wife Claudette are stepping down. The Pastoral Search Committee has been formed and begun meetings. Right now, the committee is dealing with a number of important preliminary discussions. Here are the topics to be explored:

  • What does First Baptist stand for?
  • What are our core values?
  • What are we looking for in a pastor?
  • They are developing survey tools for the congregation
  • Developing a church profile.
  • Developing a community profile.

Please keep this committee, as well as the church, in prayer as we experience this time of transition. The next meeting is on June 22 at 7:00 p.m.

 

Looking for Scripture Readers

As our Sunday services slowly come back to normalcy, we are slowly adding back in things that we had been doing faithfully before COVID. One of those things was to have church people read the scripture on Sunday morning. Are you a good reader? Are you willing to get up and read scripture to the congregation? Awesome! Contact either Linda or the Pastor and get your name on the list.

 

Guest Preachers

The following guest preachers have agreed to assist us while the pastor is away.

June 27: Rev. Dr. Chris English

July 4: David Olsen

July 11: Rev. Dr. Ken Bickel
