From Your Pastor's Heart - July 15, 2018


Good Morning Family!

     By the time you read this, VBS 2018: The Great Exchange will have concluded. However, as I write this for printing, it is early Thursday morning and a crew of nine adults are preparing to leave for Eureka Springs to take about thirty five students to The Great Passion Play complex for a day of interaction with several of the museums, a sack lunch prepared by our fabulous kitchen crew, a tour of the Holy Land with teaching along the path, dinner at the park, and a presentation of the play later in the evening.

     The next day, Friday will see a full day at FBCCF of teaching with Joel Carpenter our guest speaker from the Student Ministries at First Baptist Church of Oak Grove Missouri, lunch again prepared by our wonderful kitchen crew (did I mention they were wonderful?), followed an afternoon presentation by scientist and Bible teacher Heno Head, a game of laser tag here at the church, a spaghetti dinner, and finally more teaching and worship as we will wrap up at 7:30pm Friday night.

     I am so thankful for all of those who have worked so hard at supplying, preparing, and planning for this year’s VBS Event under the direction of our Children’s Ministry Director Tracy Hudson. Thanks, Tracy for leading this ministry at FBCCF.

     This morning, Rev. Dale Keel will be bringing the message from the Word for us today. I am so looking forward to hearing what God has to say to us through him today! Bro. Dale is such a blessing to us at FBCCF not just for his teaching weekly, but for his friendship and guidance.

Remember, due to our Business Meeting and Potluck lunch today, there will be no service this evening.

As always, my prayer is that we would all, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” II Timothy 2:15

Humbly Yours,

Bro Steve

Good Morning Family!

 

     Big, Big week ahead for FBCCF… Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You folks continually step up to the plate! We had asked for a few of you to bring baked goods and grapes for VBS. The sign-up list in the foyer filled up in minutes last Sunday. Thanks so much. We also have had several folks volunteer to bring some of the food supplies for the meals for the students this coming week. Response was awesome!

 

     We will need the baked goods and grapes at the church by Wednesday July 11th. We are usually in the building on Wednesdays by around 4:30pm at the latest down in the kitchen. The east lower entrance will be unlocked. These will be used for our meals and snacks during our 2-day VBS Event, “The Great Exchange”.

 

     Pray for those helping in VBS this year. For some of our regular crew, it will mean being there for our usual Wednesday Night program, Kids 4 Truth, and for the next two days of traveling, teaching, and wrangling the students. Thanks also goes to those who have volunteered to step into leadership roles to go along on the Thursday outing to “The Great Passion Play” in Eureka Springs. It will be an all-day event from early Thursday morning until late that night as we return to the church to take kids home. We are also very grateful to the kitchen crew for VBS this year as they will have several full meals to prepare along with snacks along the way. Thanks to everyone who volunteered in any capacity to make this year’s VBS a success.

 

     The other announcement I want to continue to emphasize is the Fall 2018 Women’s Event “Fresh Grounded Faith”. I’m praying that the women of FBCCF really get in on this. You can see the price break that is available if we get a group of 10 or more. We already have almost that many that have signed up in just the first week! Two of our ladies attended this women’s conference last year and were greatly impacted by its ministry. As always, do not let cost be a factor as we will attempt to help those who may have trouble with personal funding for the whole amount. Please save the date on your calendars. It is important to set aside time to fellowship and learn together. There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer.

 

     As always, my prayer is that we would all, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” II Timothy 2:15

Good Morning Family!

     This morning, I want to draw your attention in my letter to a couple of the announcements to be found in the bulletin today.

     You will notice the call for a few of us to bake cookies or brownies for VBS. If you are able to help us out with that, we would ask you to sign up on the list in the foyer. This is something that you can do at home and then just bring them to church for us by Wednesday July 11th.   We are usually in the building on Wednesdays by around 4:30 at the latest down in the kitchen.

We will need 7 folks to make 3 dozen cookies or brownies and 7 folks to provide a bag of grapes. These will be used for our meals and snacks during our 2-day  VBS Event, “The Great Exchange”.

     The other announcement I want you ladies to be sure to read is about the Fall 2018 Women’s Event “Fresh Grounded Faith”.  I m praying that the women of FBCCF really get in on this. You can see the price break that is available if we get a group of 10 or more . Two of our ladies attended this women’s conference last year and were greatly impacted by its ministry. Please save the date on your calendars. It is important to set aside time to fellowship and learn together. There is a sign up sheet in the foyer.

     One more thanks to our church family for helping us be able to attend the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches Annual Conference this past week in Indiana. The GARBC covered our lodging and FBCCF covered gas and food expenses. The Lord provided!

     As always, my prayer is that we would all, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” II Timothy 2:15

Good Morning Family!

 

     Once again this morning, we will share around the Lord’s Supper.

 

     It is such a privilege to be invited to the Table with our Savior. He has done so much for me. And on top of all the blessings, He invites me to share in a remembrance of the Atonement. Just think of it…your Master does not relegate you to being a servant at His table but asks you to join Him as family. Today, we are all Mephibosheth. If you aren’t sure of who that is, take a look in II Samuel chapter 9. What an amazing story!

 

     You and I were so completely unworthy and yet it is His sacrifice on the cross that makes us worthy to join Him. He is the one who provides the sustenance of which we partake. We don’t have to go out and bring in our own food and drink. He provides it all!

 

     What a price was paid for the contents of the cup and the ingredients for the bread! What a wonderful Lord we have in that not only does He make the way for us to be reconciled to the Father, but then allows us to join Him in celebrating all He has done in this way as we gather to remember this morning.

 

     As I write, I am in awe of all the ways the Lord has blessed me in my life and I can’t wait to honor Him by joining you in praise and thanksgiving during our service in our worship time, in our prayer time, in the message and then around His Table. He is so good to us and continues to bless the work of His body here in Cape Fair. Even when I doubt, I know His hand is sure and His calling is true. He has each of us here at this point in time to accomplish His plan and clearly proclaim His Gospel!

 

     As always, my prayer is that we would all, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” II Timothy 2:15

 

Humbly Yours,

 

Bro Steve
