From the Heart
By: Betsie Forsythe
I wanted to take a few moments to reflect on
recent messages and Bible Study topics that have
been offered to us as a faith family. I have felt
God speaking to my heart about our church
leaders and our congregation, and I have been thinking about where God is
leading us.
Last week, during Pastor Shelley’s sermon about the story of the Good
Samaritan, I wrote down the attitudes that were depicted by people in this
story. The robbers (what’s yours is mine), the Priest and the Levite (what’s
mine is mine), and the Samaritan (what’s mine is yours).
Then yesterday, during Pastor Nick’s sermon, I was struck by how simple
and childlike the scriptures seem that have to do with love within our faith
family:
Love one another-John 13:14
Be at peace with one another-Mark 9:50
Be devoted to one another-Romans 12:10
Honor one another-Romans 12:16
Live in harmony with one another-Romans 13:8
Accept one another, then, just as Christ has accepted you-Romans 15:7.
from Pastor Nick’s sermon.
As we were preparing for worship yesterday morning, I could feel God’s
Spirit speaking, drawing us closer to Him, and I thought once again about
this journey we call life, and our need to be in constant communication
with God, in an attitude of love towards one another, and in a state of expectancy, watching and waiting to see where God wants to take us.
I would ask that we watch and wait together as we pray that our hearts will
remain open to what God has for us, and that we will respond with great
passion!
Mary Curl Group Hot Dog Luncheon
The Mary Curl Group is having a Hot Dog Luncheon
on Sunday, March 6th in the Family Life Center after
worship. They will serve baked beans, homemade slaw
and chili, all other fixings, chips, and homemade
desserts. Donations will be taken to support their mission projects.
First Wednesday Night Meal
The Mary Curl Group will be serving soup on
Wednesday, March 2nd for our First Wednesday Night
Meal. We look forward to you coming out and enjoy a
good evening of fellowship. Donations will be taken to
offset the cost of the meal.
Easter Egg Hunt
This year we will have our Easter Egg Hunt at the Saunders
Farm on March 26th at 1 p.m. We will have Hot Dogs,
chips, and drinks for Lunch, a short devotion, and an Easter
Egg Hunt for both younger and older kids. I hope that you
and your children will join us this year, and don’t forget to invite some
friends. If you have any other questions, please see Nick Garner.
FBC Academy News
By: Amy Holder
The annual Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success. We were
able raise $1,170.00 towards new books for the Academy and
After School Program. It was excited to see all the children’s
happy faces as they are searching for that special book. We will
continue to encourage reading at the Academy as we celebrate Dr.
Seuss Week. During the first week of March, the children will
participate in fun activities promoting Dr. Seuss classics, while the
teachers get to play dress up and make learning fun for everyone.
Books have the power to benefit children at a very young age. Reading is one of
the most important things you can do to prepare your child with a foundation for
academic excellence.
Please join us for our Relay for Life Hot Dog Supper on
Wednesday, March 16th at the Family Life Center. Plates will
be served for dine-in or pick-up from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
For just $5.00 you will get two hotdogs with all the trimmings,
chips, and a drink. All the proceeds from this event will go
towards Relay for Life in Granville County. Tickets will be available for
purchase in the church office and at the door. Please join us in fellowship
as we
August 2012
help to find a cure for cancer.
We are all looking forward to our special Easter presentation
scheduled for Thursday, March 24th in the Sanctuary
beginning at 10:30 a.m. The pastors and Academy staff have
joined together and planned this wonderful time of fellowship for
our children and their families. Before leaving for the Easter
holiday we will all join together for an egg hunt and party in the
classrooms.
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”
John 10:11
Mentor Program at Creedmoor Elementary
We are reaching the final planning stages of the
Mentor program. What we need is people who are
willing to meet with children at Creedmoor
Elementary School throughout the week, to build
relationships with the kids, help with homework,
and show them the love of Christ. If you are
interested, we will need your name, phone number, and a time during the
week that you would be available to go over to Creedmoor Elementary.
You can bring this information to Nick Garner, David Richardson, or the
Church Office.
Backpack Buddies
Thank you for everyone who has helped out with
Backpack Buddies. We are now delivering 16 backpacks a
week to Creedmoor Elementary, and both the teachers and
the children receiving the backpacks are excited each week
to receive them. Our biggest needs right now are for juice
boxes, pop-top cans of ravioli, pudding cups, and fruit
cups. If you are looking for a way to get involved, you can
simply pick up a few of these items while shopping and bring them to the
Church Office.
Sunday School and Mission Opportunities
By: Toni Anne Wheeler
The month of March brings new life through the
season of Spring and the message of Easter. Sunday
School classes and mission groups are asked to use the
opportunities offered this month to challenge each
other to take part in as many services and events as you
can starting with the First Family Meal on Wednesday,
March 2 served by the Mary Curl Mission Group on through the Easter Sunday
service. On Wednesday night, March 23 Sunday School classes should plan to sit
together as we dine in the Family Life Center for our special night during this
Holy Week. Invite your friends and members of your family to join in with the
“sweet spirit” during these special times. Read more about this week throughout
the newsletter.
Two mission projects for everyone to join in during March are: Let’s br ing in
100 cans of green vegetables for our Food Closet by the last Sunday in March.
You can do it. Sunday School classes collect the cans in your room- Who can
collect the most? Youth or Adults or Children?? We will see who really reads this
too.
For the CCM collection this month to catch up: Bring toothpaste and toothbrushes
(individually packaged) - put in container outside the Sunday School office.
Take Note for April - coming on April 2, the NCBM Dental Bus will be at West
Oxford Baptist Church. The Baptist Children’s Home of NC Food/Supply
Roundup will be during the month of April. More detail on these projects will be
coming closer to their times.
