Dear Family and Friends of FPC,
It has begun!!!!!! But you can still be a part of “945 – The Story”. Here is what Max Lucado and Randy Frazee say about the The Story.
It tells the grandest, most compelling story of all time: the story of God who loves His children, who establishes them for them a way of salvation and provided a route to eternity. Each story reveals God’s grace-the God who speaks; the God who acts; the God who listens; the God whose love culminated in his sacrifice of Jesus, His only Son, to atone for the sin of humanity.
What’s more: this same God is alive and active today; still listening – still acting – still pouring his grace on us. His grace extends to our daily foibles; our ups, downs, and in betweens, our moments of questions and fears; and most important our response to His call on our lives. He is the same God who forgave David’s failures and rescued Jonah from the dark belly of a fish. This same heavenly Father who shepherded the Israelites through the wilderness desires to shepherd us through our wanderings, to help us get past our failures and rescue us for eternity.
Every Sunday at 9:45 a.m. small groups will gather at FPC to discuss The Story. There will be a short DVD lesson and then plenty of discussion. Following small groups, we will continue the study during our Worship service. We will see How God’s Story and our story are weaved together.
Each week we will have a prayer person, or family, of the week. Please pray for them and even send cards to let them know you are praying or give them a call. You will find these individuals listed in our February calendar.
Also on Friday, February 17th, we will have our first Chili Cook Off followed by the Branson Sight and Sound DVD of Joseph. Please invite friends and family. Any donations received will go to the God’s House fund.
Have a blessed February and I can’t wait to see what God will we do as we begin The Story.
Love in Christ,
