June 4, 2020 Newsletter

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!
I am looking for 1 to 2 people that can lift heavy boxes and would be available the morning of the truck delivery for the food cupboard once a month.  The date and time each month may vary. 

Please let me know if you would enjoy serving in this way.  You can reach me thru Facebook, email, or by phone.
