Saturday May 25th – “Movie and Munchies” night 5:30 – 8 pm
Come and watch “Unconditional” with us. Meal at 5:30pm Film begins at 6:00 pm (ish)!
The movie follows Sam, a white female whose husband is killed in a “bad” neighborhood. After years of seeking closure, the case is unsolved and Sam is defeated. On the third anniversary of her husband’s murder, Sam goes to the alley of his death, intent on ending her life as well. Before harming herself, something providential happens which places Sam on a path of restoration. The film teaches us that even in bad circumstances God has never given up on us. He knows just what we need, and the way to show us our need. After that, we find He is truly all we need!

Be Real – Show Love is the new exciting evangelism theme for 2013 at FBC. We will be partaking in many secular activities in the area to share Christ with those who are without Him in the world. This work will begin in the spring and continue throughout the year. We will also be painting the theme on our church trailer to use as an outreach tool to show we are serious. Other things planned are remodeling one of our classrooms with complete missions and outreach themes. It will be here we will pray and report on the progress of getting the gospel into each home in the area. Also, we will host several out reach events through the warmer months that include outdoor big screen Christian film showings for adults and children alike. We are praying for the Lord to raise up laborers in His fields. Please continue to lift up our church that we may see a banner year in God’s ministry at First Baptist Church.
