“One Generation Away” The Erosion of Religious Liberty! A Live Simulcast Event

Come join us for a free simulcast beginning at 6:00 pm and ending at 8:00 pm.

A powerful documentary on the loss of religious liberty in our generation and how we can win it back. The film features the stories of modern-day heroes—bakers, florists, photographers, and t-shirt printers—who are being forced to endorse the government’s effort to redefine marriage. This challenging and encouraging movie takes its title from a famous passage of a speech in 1961 by Ronald Reagan:

But freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well thought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.

 WALKING IN THE DESERT WITH GOD
 by RAY VANDER LAAN
 

Are you going through a difficult period of life? The loss of a loved one? Unemployment? A crisis of faith? During these desert times, it’s easy to think God has disappeared. In Walking with God in the Desert you’ll discover that it’s only when we are totally dependent on him that we find God is closer than ever and can experience his amazing grace and provision.

Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God’s Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible’s fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the Scriptures’ significance for modern believers.

Angels - Who They Are and How They Help Study GuideLadies Bible Study every Tuesday Morning!

 

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

We are inviting you to come, share, and join in  in celebrating what our AWESOME GOD is doing in our lives. The Bible tells us we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, (see Heb. 10:25). Please make every opportunity to attend. Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus. Many in the community have said they cannot come on Sunday Mornings so this is your opportunity to Worship the King during the evening. We are here to serve the Lord and in doing that serve you! Remember John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
