Weekly Scripture Meditation: [11.8.2020]
The Church, as a whole, is invited to participate in reading and meditating on the lectionary texts for the upcoming Sunday. The texts for Sunday, November 8 are as follows:
Amos 5:18-24, Psalm 70, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Matthew 5:1-13
Sermon Series on the Psalms [10.18-11.15]
We are in a series of sermons based upon the Psalm choices in the Lectionary. We have been in the New Testament for some time now, so it should be refreshing to explore this wonderful segment of the Old Testament.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
We now have 250 essential items to fill our FBC boxes (packing party information will be coming soon)! Thanks to our generous shoppers and a local dental office, we have 250 toothbrushes, bars of soap, washcloths and combs!
Still want to shop? You could purchase colored pencils, tools, or band aids/first aid kits.
Don't want to shop, but have time to help? Grab some boxes next time you're at church and put them together at home.
Thank you for all your help. -Kylie

We are looking in to how to do that for this application.
