July 21, 2022 Newsletter

Our Summer sermon series this year is, “He Really Said That?!”  We’ll take a look at some of the shocking statements Jesus made during his ministry. Statements like: 
  • Anger = murder
  • Being maimed > continuing to sin
  • Unless you hate your family, you cannot be my disciple 
These statements can be difficult to swallow in light of the kind, loving, Jesus that we prefer to envision.  However, Jesus really said this and a lot more. Check us out Sunday at 11 am to get to the bottom of Jesus’ shocking statements! 
The Haiti Team is Headed Back!

Since 2009 we have been supporting Christian Light School in Port-au-Prince Haiti by completing new construction, teaching teachers, teaching first aid, building on to the school electrical system and building furniture.

With a large list of things to do that includes solar panel work, replacement of chair seats, repair of cabinets, relocate and install several water tanks, we are headed back.  It is our pleasure to support this school with over 325 students where they hear the word of God and receive two meals a day while learning and preparing for their futures. This ministry also includes the baby feeding program in the ravine, so those children will be healthy when they enter school.
The team is needing your help! 
We are quite short on funds for this trip.  You can give online for the Haiti Trip or mark your check/envelope (“Haiti”).   On Sunday,  July 24th we will have the love offering envelopes out in support of repairs of the Christian Light School.  Thank you for your support!
Our next Quarterly Business Meeting will be on Sunday, July 31 at 5 PM in the worship center.  Members of FSBC are encouraged to join us.

Bill Koehn Mission Offering

Not only do we look forward to the Bill Kohen Mission Offering but also look forward to our summertime outreach events that are associated with this offering, and how God works through His workers who are reaching out into our community-being His hands and feet. We pray for the people we meet, that they would see the love of Christ, Him working in their lives, and accept Christ as their Lord and Savior.

This offering also supports ministries on a year round basis such as Rick & Connie Ediger, home missionaries to South Central CO, Chad Clement with Mission OKC, reaching out to the inner city kids of Oklahoma City, OK., Cindy Lyddon with Grace Place Pregnancy Care Center, offering support from a godly perspective for unplanned pregnancies, and Lisa Batt the Oklahoma area wide coordinator for FCA.

Lisa Batt, Area Director 
Our area ministry is growing at a God-like speed in the last year and a half since I have been on full-time staff with FCA.  My job has three main areas—
1) minister to coaches as they work to influence and encourage athletes 
2) grow current FCA campus huddles
3) help start new campus huddles. 

Over the last year and a half we have gone from 3 huddles in OK Panhandle and 2 huddles in Southwest KS to 10 Panhandle huddles and 5 Southwest KS huddles.  God has allowed me to have access to so many coaches where I am able to pray with them, encourage them, give them Bibles and Bible studies, and then in turn they bring me in to work with their teams with team building activities and chapel services. I have been able to serve coaches and athletes, present the gospel, lead Bible lessons, pray with teams, bring teambuilding activities, and much much more.  God continues to open schools and allow the love of Jesus to be shown in atmospheres that are typically shut off from the religious world.

This summer FCA will be as busy as ever!  We have a Volleyball Camp, Golf Camp, our Extreme Camp, 2 Leadership Camps, a Coaches Marriage Retreat, and a Coaches Clinic all taking place.  We will provide Bibles, lessons, and sport to so many area kids. 

I am so grateful for the support of the Bill Koehn mission offering.  The finances help supply so much for this ministry.  On top of that our church mission team supplies a meal to the campers at Volleyball and Golf camp one day.  FCA’s vision is to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.  By leading every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church.  Thank you for helping us do this!

Our goal this year for the Bill Koehn offering is $2,000. Please prayerfully and sacrificially give to support our Bill Koehn Mission Offering and help reach out locally for Christ.

Dear Sponsor,

Thank You so much for your donation and support for Rodeo Bible Camp.  It is an amazing opportunity that may not have been possible for some of us without your gift.  We had a wonderful time praising God and learning more about Him and rodeo.
