                  Food Cupboard Needs

Our next food cupboard will be on Saturday, August 8 from 10 – 11:30 AM at the east entrance of the church.  Here are a few food items that we are needing before our next food cupboard date: 
Jelly, Peanut Butter, Mac & Cheese, Hamburger Helper, Ramon Noodles.


You may bring these food items to the church.  You can also donate by marking your check or donation – Food Cupboard.  If you have any questions, call Cheryl Dreitz at 620-655-3548.  Thanks for your help with this ministry!
This 2020-2021 school year, FSBC  is going to adopt an area school. Cottonwood Elementary will be our adopted school. FSBC started collecting school supplies during VBS. Please help us fill up the black tub in the church foyer with school supplies. School supply suggestions may be found on this list. We would like to deliver the supplies before the first day of school so our last collection Sunday will be August 23.  Thank you for your support and please be on the lookout for our next event with our adopted school.

Cereal Box Collection 

During VBS, our mission team asked our VBS families to bring cereal boxes for our food cupboard.  Please help us to bless the families that visit our food cupboard by providing them with cereal in the month of September. We will have the collection boxes in the foyer until August 23. This will allow our Food Cupboard Ministry to sort the cereal and prepare them for distribution.  Thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl Dreitz at cheryldreitz@yahoo.com.

AWANA…Join Our Team

Are you looking for a place to plug in at FSBC that would allow you to follow the Great Commission? Please consider joining the AWANA team this school year? 

 

What is AWANA? AWANA is a Bible-based evangelism and discipleship program. At First Southern Baptist Church, we offer AWANA for ages 2 years through 5th grade. AWANA gives children the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus, no matter their background, through music, Bible story, Bible memorization, and game time.  The great thing is you don’t have to excel at any of these things. What is most important is that you give your time and let God do the rest. 2 Cor 9:8.

 

What is the time commitment? AWANA, at FSBC, is offered on Wednesday nights from 6:10 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. beginning on August 26 and ending on April 28. To make it easier to serve, the church offers a Wednesday night meal, max $20 per family…$4 per child (3 years to 5th grade) and $5 per adult.  This is also a great time to fellowship and focus on sharing the Gospel and Jesus’ love.

 

The positions we have open are:

  • Communications (Take pics and put in a newsletter to send home with kids each night)

  • Cubbies Workers (preschoolers)

  •  Puggles Workers (toddlers)

  • Song Leaders

  • Sparks and T&T Book Leaders

  • Sparks and T&T Game Leaders

  • Sparks and T&T Listeners

 

You can find the responsibilities for these positions at http://fsbcliberal.com/volunteer-serve/#awana

 

If you would like to join the AWANA team, please register here. If you are not sure but want to know more about the AWANA program, please make plans to attend the AWANA Volunteer meeting at 6:10 p.m. on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, at FSBC in the Fellowship Hall. You may also speak to Doug Munsell, AWANA Director or Norma Jean Dodge, T&T Director/Children’s Ministry Coordinator. Jesus tells us the fields are “ripe for harvest.” John 4:35.  

 

Please give prayerful consideration to this request and I hope you will consider joining the AWANA team.

Prayer for Deacons

The Deacon body has continued to meet since the pandemic.  Sometimes the meetings have occurred via Zoom but as restrictions have eased, we have met in person to pray for our pastor, his family and our church family.  Presently there are eight serving deacons.  The Deacon body doesn’t feel like that is sufficient to meet all that is required to serve effectively.  In the coming weeks you will be receiving a call for deacons. As we begin the steps necessary to do this, the Deacons are asking that you pray along for God’s direction as we move toward this call.  Presently, our  Deacons are:
  • Jim Dodge
  • Gary Classen
  • Jimmie Farr
  • Richard Isaacs
  • Steve McKee
  • David Short
  • Gary Staiger
  • Doug Werner
If you feel God nudging you to serve as a deacon but are concerned that you just don’t know enough about the Bible, please consider that a deacon is, above all else, a servant.  (Acts 6).   In fact the scriptural qualifications of a deacon found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 focus on character and family life and not how many Bible verses you can quote from memory.  Please pray for God to bring to mind the men of our church who can fill this vital role.
 
If you should have any questions about deacons and what they do, please do not hesitate to contact any of the deacons named above.
Help Needed!

The church tech team needs help to run a camera or projection on Sunday mornings during the two church services (9:30 AM & 11:00 AM). 
Please call or text Gary Classen at (620)629-0063 if you are interested.
            Ladies’ Legacy—“Paths to Peace and Purpose”
      September 11 & 12, 2020  – – Webster Conference Center – Salina, KS.
 
Opening our Women’s Friendship Devotional this morning, I discovered Cheri Fuller’s theme for the next week, “Peace in an Uncertain World.”  She could have written that yesterday!  If you are like me, some days peace is a bit elusive, and on those days I often find that peace in Scripture and in the words of some of the “heroes of the faith.”
 
Today’s theme, “From Panic to Peace” reminded me again about the Scripture index cards that we made at our last retreat.  I have continued to daily write Scripture cards for myself, but haven’t shared them.  Cheri encouraged me to do that again more faithfully. Would you like to try it?
 
Another huge encouragement I find is being surprised by notations in my Bible that I have made year after year.  I’ve been using my main Bible since  1987, and it is a joy to find the Lord’s encouragement in it day after day.
 
Today’s Scripture:
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are
fixed in you!”  Isaiah 26:3
 
Today’s quote from a “hero of the faith”:
“Just as saving faith comes through hearing the gospel, so also the faith to trust God in adversity comes through the Word of God alone…Only from the Scriptures, applied to our hearts by the Holy Spirit, do we receive the grace to trust God when we are afraid.”—Jerry Bridges, author and speaker

            Thank you!

Another VBS has come to an end and I would like to thank the 97 FSBC volunteers that assisted with VBS. Your work has helped spread the Gospel, share the love of Jesus, and the love of FSBC.  We had several children that expressed a desire to know more about Jesus and we had two children make Jesus their Lord and Savior. VBS is a GREAT time but it is most importantly a ministry that we are able to spread the Gospel. As Jesus says in Matthew 28:19 “…Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” Thank you church family for following the Great Commission. I look forward to serving alongside you again in the near future. I hope it is before next summer; if not, see you when we explore God’s Word through Destination Dig.

* Pray for Jessica Marrow (Alan & Jolene Brown’s daughter) & family as Jessica had Covid-19 & is doing much better now.

* Mellissa Brennemen (former member here) found out she has pancreatic cancer.  Prayers for her and the family as they start treatments.
* Pray for Jim Reed (Kathy Harris’ father) as he fights Covid-19 & pneumonia.
* Hector Romero (Marty Nordyke’s brother) prayers for Hector & the family.  Hector has been put on Hospice care now.
* Pray for Shelby Bainey (mother to Marilyn Marchel’s granddaughters) recovering from surgery.

Health Update: We’re relieved to announce that the child attending our VBS who had been experiencing sickness did NOT test positive for COVID-19. However they did test positive for strep. Please be in prayer with us for this child and their family.  

VBS 2020…The Foundation Has Been Laid

VBS 2020 did not end as planned but the decision made to end early was best for our children and volunteers. Thank you to all the 97 volunteers who joined the VBS Crew with their time and talents. As Pastor Mark mentioned Wednesday night, there were a lot of positives from the week … developing a sense of community, spreading the Gospel, children’s smiling faces, and some children accepting Christ or asking for more about our Lord and Savior. God is good!

 During the week, one of the leader’s daily devotionals touched on Jesus instructing us to listen and obey His words…for you are wise. Thank you for listening to His call to spread the Gospel and make disciples. By listening to God’s call, FSBC was able to reach 61 children on Monday. 75 children on Tuesday, and 82 children on Wednesday. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Please note that our time sharing the Good News is not over. I hope you will continue to serve whether it is AWANA, Children’s Ministry, Youth, Nursery, Ladies Legacy, Choir, Missions…wherever God directs your heart to love and spread the Good News.

Our next quarterly business meeting will be on Sunday, July 26 at 5 PM in the worship center.  Anyone is welcome to come, all members are encouraged to attend business meeting.

VBS Concrete and Cranes kicks off July 19 and runs through July 23, 2020 for ages 4 years old by September 1st through 8th grade, from 6-8:45 p.m. We hope your child(ren), grandchild(ren), any other family members and neighbors will join us. We ask that you pre-register before Sunday at https://fsbcliberal.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/415071.

 VBS will kick-off with the musical performed at both the 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. service. Dinner will be served for VBS volunteers and VBS participants at 5 p.m. Then, we will learn how Jesus is our strong foundation. Events will include our penny drive, with funds going to our adopted 2020-2021 school Cottonwood Elementary (come Wednesday Night if you want to be part of the fun),  collection of cereal boxes for the food pantry, and Family Night on Thursday, July 23 beginning at 7 p.m. at the church backyard There will be music, games, hotdogs, and sno cones from the Sno Shack.

 If you would like to still join the VBS team, we have room for you!

We’re back with 2 Worship Experiences for you to choose from:
9:30am OR 11am!! 

One of the great benefits of having multiple worship experiences is that as a church we now have the opportunity to attend a service AND serve during a service. Would you consider praying together as a family about how God would have you plug into a serving opportunity at FSBC? There are phenomenal opportunities to serve with kids, teens, technology, worship, teaching a small group, and much more. If you have questions about when, where, how, etc., to serve, give us a call (620-624-0186) or shoot us an email (church@fsbcliberal.com), we’d LOVE to help you plug into a serving opportunity as we prepare to serve the Church and our community!
Our next quarterly business meeting will be on Sunday, July 26 at 5 PM in the worship center.  Anyone is welcome to come, all members are encouraged to attend business meeting.

VBS 2020 – Concrete & Cranes

Look up—way up. That’s where we’re headed. Where I-beams float effortlessly high overhead, carefully guided into place by powerful machinery. Where steel and glass converge in a colossal design that appears to almost touch the sky. These magnificent structures were elaborately designed and intricately built. Yet they all began the same way—with concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes; and most importantly, a solid foundation.

It’s Vacation Bible School time at First Southern Baptist Church! Children age 4 years old by September 1st through 8th grade are admitted free from 6:00-8:45 p.m. July 19-23, 2020. This summer kids will learn that Jesus’ love will provide a foundation that lasts. Each day kids will make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, sing cool songs, and learn about missions.This week of fun, food, and exciting learning opportunities is free of charge and open to everyone.

For more information call the church at 620.624.0186 or visit our website www.fsbcliberal.com . You may also register your child(ren) at https://fsbcliberal.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/415071.
We’re back with 2 Worship Experiences for you to choose from:

One of the great benefits of having multiple worship experiences is that as a church we now have the opportunity to attend a service AND serve during a service. Would you consider praying together as a family about how God would have you plug into a serving opportunity at FSBC? There are phenomenal opportunities to serve with kids, teens, technology, worship, teaching a small group, and much more. If you have questions about when, where, how, etc., to serve, give us a call (620-624-0186) or shoot us an email (church@fsbcliberal.com), we’d LOVE to help you plug into a serving opportunity as we prepare to serve the Church and our community!

As you know my mother, Sondra Patton, my wife and I would like to thank you for all the prayers for our family.  As we set out to Seattle from Florida to help the University of Washington Medical Center fight Covid-19 mom had added us to your prayer chain.  Now that we have been here for nearly 3 months everything has gone well.  But, last weekend Colleen fell and broke her leg, we are living in our RV while being in Seattle so being 3200 miles from home is one thing but having a broken leg and being in the RV is another issue.  We had our Orthopedic Appt last week and she does not need surgery, praise the Lord.  Again the Community of Liberal has prayed for me my whole life from the Gulf War to now being on the front lines fighting Covid 19.  God Bless you and we will come visit you this summer.

VBS 2020 – Concrete & Cranes

Look up—way up. That’s where we’re headed. Where I-beams float effortlessly high overhead, carefully guided into place by powerful machinery. Where steel and glass converge in a colossal design that appears to almost touch the sky. These magnificent structures were elaborately designed and intricately built. Yet they all began the same way—with concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes; and most importantly, a solid foundation.

It’s Vacation Bible School time at First Southern Baptist Church! Children age 4 years old by September 1st through 8th grade are admitted free from 6-8:45 p.m. July 19-23, 2020.

Our series, Game Changers, continues this week as we focus on Faith in the lives of ordinary people!

Join us on Sunday at 10:45 AM as we will be doing church together from multiple locations!  We will be livestreaming our service just like we do every week. 
Join us at www.fsbcliberal.com  OR on Facebook at FSBCLiberal.
We are SO excited to announce that we will be returning to large group worship again on Sunday, June 21st with 2 Worship Experiences for you to choose from: 9:30am OR 11am!! The 9:30am Worship Experience will be a contemporary expression of worship, while the 11am Worship Experience will be exactly what you have encountered at FSBC for years now. Preschool Ministry will be provided for your kids 5 and under during BOTH worship experiences. Children’s Ministry for kids older than 5 years will begin again on July 5. Until then, we would encourage you to plan on worshipping with us together as a family! 

Beginning on Sunday, July 5, we will add back Sunday School and Children’s Church activities for everyone!

One of the great benefits of having multiple worship experiences is that as a church we now have the opportunity to attend a service AND serve during a service. Would you consider praying together as a family about how God would have you plug into a serving opportunity at FSBC? There are phenominal opportunities to serve with kids, teens, technology, worship, teaching a small group, and much more. If you have questions about when, where, how, etc., to serve, give us a call (620-624-0186) or shoot us an email (church@fsbcliberal.com), we’d LOVE to help you plug into a serving opportunity as we prepare to serve the Church and our community!
Attention Dads and Dad lovers everywhere!!!
Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and we couldn’t be more EXCITED! This year, following both worship experiences, on the church lawn, you and your Dad will have the opportunity to participate in the first ever FSBC Father Fest!! There will be: It’s completely FREE to attend and participate! Everyone is welcome, so PLEASE, bring your Dad, his Dad, and your friend’s Dad to come experience, “Manly Men // Doing Manly Things // In Manly Ways”  We can’t wait to see YOU there!
Join us for this lifestream event, where we’ll come together virtually from around the globe to remind our hearts of the certainty of God’s Word in a world that feels so uncertain.  All for just $20!
You’ll only be able to access this event up until 11:59 pm on Sunday, June 14, so don’t miss it!
