Dear Friends Pursuing Christ,
Welcome Fall and a new season in our life together at FPC. During October and November, we will be centering our worship time on sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. I know that for many people this can be scary, but with Christ, we can do all things. So, join us for this Fall adventure and see how you can turn from green to the beautiful colors of Fall. Here is a prayer that many of us our praying:
Lord you have told us to go into all the world and preach the gospel. But in all honesty, I am not doing as I should. Would you help me with this? Will you give me a heart for those who do not know you yet? Will you give me a holy boldness like I have never had before? I know that your heart is to reach them, and you showed us this by sending Jesus to die on the cross for the sins of the world. Give me that concern for people that would reflect your heart. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
You can begin with this prayer and then be bold and ask people if they would like to come to worship with you, ask them to join us on Sunday, October 15th when we will have a light lunch followed by a fun activity, or invite them to join us for the monthly “Blessing series centered on strengthening our families and other relationships. Dinner is at 6:30 and the study begins at 7:00 pm. If that is too bold for you, invite them over for coffee and some apple pie for a good neighborly visit. Be creative you can do it.
Other specials for the month: October 1st – distribution of the coin jars for God’s House. October 21st – Girls of Grace, October 29th – First coin jar collection. Check the calendar on the back for other activities and special days.
Love and prayers,
