June 10, 2021 Newsletter

Hey Church!
We know that Summer is a crazy busy time for so many of us with vacations, camps, family events, and more. With that in mind, we wanted to let you know in advance what we’ll be doing on Sundays for June and July. 
Beginning Sunday, June 6, we will start a new teaching series called, “Snapshots of a Changed Life”. We’ll examine the lives of 8 Biblical characters whose lives were radically changed through an encounter with God. In addition to looking through the stories of these people, we will also begin working towards equipping FSBC as a whole to begin sharing their life change story with others! We can’t wait to see how God is going to use this for His glory and our good! We hope you’ll make plans NOW to be a part of as much of this teaching series as possible!

The Marriage and Family class is doing a new study called Cherish by Gary Thomas. Everyone is invited to come and check it out at 11 AM in room 201-202 with Donovan & Lisa Batt.  To read more about this study, go to this link: https://garythomas.com/books/cherish/
                                         Bill Koehn Mission Offering
Our local missions offering, “The Bill Koehn Missions Offering” is named after a former FSBC member who gave his life while serving at the Jubli Baptist hospital in Yemen. Bill and others were struck down by a Muslim militant.
Bill’s service to Christ lives on as we follow his lead and God’s teachings to reach others with the Gospel of Christ. Isaiah 49:6 says “And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.” KJV.
FSBC supports mission works and missionaries on a year round basis.
We are also planning our summer outreach events in order to reach our community with the Gospel. These events are June 25: Liberal Night Out, July 17: Liberal Bee Jay’s buy out, August 20-21: Rodeo, Sometime in September: Car Wash at Squeaky Clean, and October 29: Trunk or Treat for Cottonwood Elementary. Please plan to join us on these dates in making a difference in our community.
The Bill Koehn Missions Offering is used to support these mission works and others. Our goal this year is $2,000. Please consider giving sacrificially to help reach this goal.
Calling all women, young or old, that would like to have lunch together at IHop on Thursday, June 17th starting at 11:45 AM.  If you work, come during your lunch break.  Let’s have a good meal and time visiting together.  See you there!
Hey Church!
Liberal Night Out is back and we’re excited to be a part of the action!  On Friday, June 25, we will be out at Light Park with inflatables, train rides, bottled water, and a mechanical bull!  This is an “all-hands-on-deck” volunteer opportunity, so PLEASE make plans NOW to help show our city the love of Jesus through service and personal interaction. Sign up sheets will be in the lobby THIS Sunday!   – Pastor Mark
VBS preschool class needs your help!  For a craft we are doing, we are needing to have an empty Pringles potato chip can for each child.  If you could help us out, please bring your empty cans to the church office.
