God’s Not Dead Movie Night August 23rd!
Smash Hit Film Showing at FBC Saturday August 23rd at 6:30 pm
Come join us for a movie and a meal; all free of charge! All are welcome.
This is a powerful film. Kevin Sorbo turns in a brilliant performance as a Philosophy professor who starts his new class by insisting that his students sign a paper stating “God is dead”. One student, named Josh, refuses to do so and Professor Jeffery (Sorbo) tells him he must debate the topic that God is dead and give convincing evidence that he is not. Josh accepts the challenge and the viewer later learns why Professor Jeffery has been bitter at God for a long time. It should be noted that the professor’s girlfriend is a Christian but he just can’t seem to outrun God.
Other plots involve a man named Mark (Dean Cain) who is self absorbed and doesn’t care when he learns his girlfriend has cancer. He ignores his elderly mother too who has dementia and is in a nursing home. This compelling movie features the Newsboys who minister to the woman with cancer and a providential moment when Pastor Dave (David A.R. White) has an opportunity to minister to a certain college professor. In addition, a woman lives for Jesus despite the fact her father belongs to another religion and will reject her if she doesn’t reject Christ. We are happy to award this movie our Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages twelve plus. This movie is a powerful tool to remind every viewer: God is certainly not dead!

Bible Studies and Worship!
Tuesday Morning Men’s Bible Study
NEW The Attributes of God!!! Tuesday’s at 6:15 am (Early Birds)
Who Does God Say That He Is?
Misconceptions about God abound. But they don’t have to. God has revealed His character in Scripture, illuminating the attributes that define Him. While we, being finite creatures, can never truly comprehend everything that God is, we should study what He Himself has said.
In this 16-part teaching series, The Attributes of God, Ligonier Teaching Fellow Dr. Steven Lawson articulates a biblical understanding of divine attributes and explores how a right understanding of God can affect every aspect of our lives.
Ladies Bible Study every Tuesday Morning! New Study Begins September 2nd!
Join Joyce Mancke and a host of ladies for “Angels” By David Jeremiah Tuesday Mornings at 10:30 am! People have long been fascinated by stories of angel sightings, yet many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth. In Angels, Dr. David Jeremiah uses Scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven and their role and work in our world. Dr. Jeremiah’s book will capture the attention of readers of all ages who seek a broad and thorough survey of Scripture that clearly separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. Answers these questions: What are angels? What is their role in God’s plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight? All ladies of all ages are welcome to attend. For more information contact the church office at 217-523-7731
