Wednesday Prayer [9.30.20]

This coming Wednesday evening [9.30.20] we will gather in the Fellowship Hall for prayer. We will wear masks and social distance. The prayer time is liturgically driven with time allowed for personal requests.




Please continue to pray for Gomer-Sozo. She is still stuck on the streets. She comes in to see us but is not yet accepting help to leave the streets and get rehab.

Pray for “Autumn,” a woman who came to the salon after being beaten by her foreign boyfriend. She shared her story and we offered her help, but she went back to prostitution for now. Pray she will come back and allow us to walk alongside her and give her a way out. [I wrote this in the morning, and in the afternoon, she showed up. She was beaten again. She didn’t know what to do, but when she saw an image of the cross, she came to us. After resting, talking, and changing clothes, she came back again. Pray for her safety and for the courage to leave and start a new life].


Philippians Sermon Series [9.27.20]

This is the second week of a four-part series originating from Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Paul speaks of how important humility is to the development of Christian character.


Operation Christmas Child

FBC Shoppers, here are the necessities we need to fill 250 shoeboxes – we filled more than 200 at last year’s packing party:

  • Bars of Soap
  • Combs or Brushes
  • Toothbrushes
  • First Aid Kits
  • Pencils and Sharpeners


We could still use other items, including tool kits for older boys, flip flops and water bottles for all ages, and crayons and other school supplies. We have over 300 washcloths, 250 stuffed animals and tons of toys, so thank you again for your help! If you have any shopping or donation questions, please call Kylie Loeffelholz at 563-543-4073.



We had a glorious morning this past Sunday. We pray it will be the same this weekend. No matter what the weather is, we will meet for worship.

Masks are still recommended for outside and required for inside. Social distancing will be in effect. If we are outside and you want to use the parking lot, you will need to arrive before 10:00. After that, please park curbside.

Bring your own chairs, and dress for the weather. God bless you.
