This Sunday @First Baptist
October 20, 2019
9:15 & 10:45am

We’re examining what the Bible says about what’s taking place in our culture today, and how we’re living our lives in response. God’s Word has some directives for us that we want to adhere to as His people. This Sunday we’ll be exploring the dangers of alcohol.
Just what does God’s Word say about this subject? Are we to totally abstain, or does the Bible permit its use? Please be in prayer for this study, and for Pastor Buddy as he shares from God’s Word as he shares of this matter, and on other subjects in the weeks to come. After all, it’s important. Our lives are something we need to Handle With Care.

Can’t be with us? Join us through our livestream.

Operation Christmas Child Boxes Are Here!
Pick up a box at the Mission Wall

Perhaps there is no other way to directly impact the world for the Gospel like there is through Operation Christmas Child. Through Samaritan’s Purse, these small boxes filled with trinkets and hope reach every part of the world, taking the Good News in every language to smiling, precious faces who need to hear it. All this month prepared shoeboxes are ready at the Mission Wall. Simply get one (or more), fill it according to the instructions inside, and return by October 31. Your gifts and kindness will mean all the world to a child somewhere in the world!

Who’s Your One?
Praying for people needing the Gospel

A few weeks ago Pastor Buddy challenged us to be praying for our “one,” a person in our sphere of influence in need of God’s hand in their life. Every day we come in contact with all sorts of people…people without hope, without the saving knowledge of Jesus, and without His presence in their lives. God’s decree to reach them is clear as we share His message of repentance and forgiveness with a lost world. 

In our Gathering Space, behind the Welcome Center you’ll see names of hundreds of people being prayed for. If you have a “one,” keep on praying. If you don’t yet, then please take time to consider who you know who doesn’t know Christ that you could and should be praying for on a daily basis.  “Who’s Your One?”
