Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
On September 13, we had a congregational meeting and voted to keep our name as Freeman Presbyterian Church. We had t-shirts made with our new logo. I was asked by lots of people what FPC stood for on the shirt. Here was my answer; FPC stands for Friends Pursuing Christ at Freeman Presbyterian Church where we are called to “Love God and Serve people.” Wow! What a statement that made. I have had so many compliments and kudos regarding the logo on our shirts and so many people in the church liked them that we decided to get sweat shirts!!!!!! This is one way to introduce people to Jesus Christ and our church and to let them know what we are all about as a congregation. But let it be noted people are watching us whether we are or are not wearing the shirt. They see Christ in us. We are His witnesses.
I want to give a shout out to all who worked Freeman Homecoming Days. We did not have a float this year because we decided it was more important to help out at FCC booths and help out where needed. Midway Awana had a “Rootbeer” float introducing the community to this important ministry and won second place!!! Many of the Awana children and adults walked or rode on the float.
On Sunday (9/20), we held the last of the summer’s “Worship in the Park.” We had a great time worshipping God, singing along with Richard Thurman and some old gospel favorites. We ate donuts and shared those goodies with friends and neighbors of Freeman. One of the Sunday small groups followed the festivities with lunch in the park. Oh, there was so much joy.
In September, we began organizing prayer teams to be praying for our children, teachers, and administrators at our school. We have teams that pray at home Monday through Saturday. On Sunday, we will join as one body interceding on behalf of Midway-Cass. If you would like to join one of these teams let me know or sign up on Sunday.
Love in Christ,
