March 3, 2022 Newsletter

On Sunday, March 6th, we will begin a new teaching series called “Filters, Temptation is Never What It Seems”.  Based on 1 John 2:15-17, this teaching series will equip us with the ability to identify temptation and understand it for what it truly is – an attempt to enslave you.  If you’ve ever been tempted to do something, say something, or think something wrong, this series is for you!
United to Reach the Nations in our Neighborhoods    
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
275 million people are estimated lost in North America. That’s men, women, young adults, and children. Among that population is more than 40 million people living in the United States who were born in another country. That’s about 1/5th of the world’s migrant population—more than any other country.
Almost every nation in the world is represented in North America making it one of the most complex mission fields. And immigrants continue to come here for a better life, even from countries closed to the gospel.
But these aren’t just numbers. They represent people made in God’s image—people in need of gospel hope.
When we come together to reach the nations and our own neighborhoods, the Church becomes a beautiful representation of God’s vision for every nation, tribe and tongue to be saved and united in praise to Him. Through all our differences, we can be transformed and united by the unchanging, life-giving gospel of Jesus.
Prayer Requests
To have eyes open to see the people around you in need of the hope of the gospel.
For the thousands of missionaries across North America working to reach new people even in the most challenging circumstances.
This year’s goal to support missionaries working in North America (US, Canada, and their territories) through the NAMB (North American Mission Board) is $2,000.  Please join us for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering!

OOPS! – A Reminder…

Do you have an overdue library book?

Because of Covid-19, some of you were not able to return the library books you had checked out. Could they be hiding in a bookcase or bookbag somewhere?

Please look around for any FSBC library books or DVDs and bring them with you when you come to church. Just drop them in the green bucket inside the library door.

We thank you!

Hey Church! 
We need your opinion! 
This year, following Easter Sunday, we’re going to begin a 6-week teaching series called, “You Asked For It”. In this series, YOU will be selecting the 6 topics for each week’s message. To best collect your opinions, we’ve put together a survey that will allow you to select up to 6 topics OR there’s an option for you to request an unlisted topic. So, if you’ve ever said, “I wonder what the Bible says about ________”, this series is right up your alley!

Hey Church – 

You’ve probably already heard that there are some changes coming regarding the staffing of our Kids Ministry. In the event that you haven’t heard, both Norma Jean Dodge, our Children’s Coordinator, and Nique Brown, our Nursery Coordinator, have prayerfully decided to step down from their respective positions effective December 31 last year. We’re incredibly grateful for their years of service and for the healthy way in which both ladies are pursuing this change! If you have any questions or concerns regarding the transition of Norma Jean or Nique, please take the time to seek these ladies out and talk to them directly.

As we look towards the future of our Kid’s Ministry here at First Southern Baptist Church, we will be pursuing a single, full time position for the role of Kid’s Coordinator (this position will include oversight of kids, birth – 5th grade). If you’re interested in this position, or know of someone who might be, check out the link below! If you have questions about the position, check out the link below! If you just want to be in the know about the details of this position, check out the link below! 

In the meantime, we would greatly appreciate your continued prayers for wisdom and understanding as the Personnel Team is seeking God’s will regarding the individual who will fill this role. 

Thank you, 
Pastor Mark
