Hebrews: An Apology for Our Time.

Hebrews BackgroundPastor Mike has started a new “Sunday” series of messages that relate very much to the times in which we live today. In the first few centuries of the church many believers had to endure cruel hostilities because of their faith. The Hebrew believers were no different. Written to a group of Jewish Christians, most likely from or around Rome just prior to the Neronian persecutions that began in A.D. 64, these believers were facing tough decisions. Do I stand with Christ and endure the hostility, or, do I deny Him feigning I am Jewish but not Christian? If your faith was put to the test how would you stand?
Jesus gave up everything for us. Do we love Him enough to return the favor?
God Bless the 6 new believers who were baptized in Sept. 2015, and our New members Mike and Helen Lecrone and Kathy Davis!

Bible Studies and Worship

Tuesday Men’s Bible Study 6:15 AM

Ray Vander Lann – “Fire on the Mountain”
FireOnMountain.jpgWhen the Israelites left Egypt, they were finally free. Free from persecution, free from oppression, and free to worship their God. But with that freedom comes a new challenge – learning how to live together the way God intends. In this ninth volume of Faith Lessons, discover how God teaches the Israelites what it means to be part of a community that loves him and what that means for us today.

War Room Bible Study – based on the #1 Film The War Room

About the movie: Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan’s world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a “war room” and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony’s hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara’s wisdom that victories don’t come by accident.

Monthly Events

Saturday Evening Worship, Concerts, & Films , Saturdays at 7:00 pm!

Saturday 7:00 pm weekly Worship and fellowship. Working on Sunday mornings? No problem. There is plenty of opportunity to lift praises to God in song and testimony on Saturday nights! 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!
