June 24, 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! 
— Pastor Mark

                                         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.

Hey Church!!
We have an opportunity to serve the Liberal Bee Jays and the community of Liberal on Saturday, July 17 at 7pm! FSBC is the official buyout sponsor of their game that evening. We’re planning to use this opportunity to get the word out about our VBS that begins Sunday, July 18. Would you consider marking off Saturday, July 17 at 7pm  on your calendar to help represent our church at the game and get the word out about VBS? 
VBS needs your help! 
For a craft we are doing, we are needing to have  empty Pringles potato chip cans for each child!!  If you could help us out, please bring your empty cans to the church office.   Thank you!

            Destination Dig: Unearthing the Truth About Jesus

At Destination Dig, kids will unearth more than just dirt. They’ll discover real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus. Stories from the Bible will leap off the pages as kids explore where Jesus walked and examine artifacts that bring the world of the Bible to life. As junior archaeologists, kids will study tangible pieces of the past to learn the truth about who Jesus is and why He came. Each day, kids will make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, sing cool songs, and learn about missions.
