May 21, 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  OR on Facebook at FSBCLiberal.
Looking at the photo above, we are reminded that there is much work to be done for the Kingdom of God here in our own country.  The North American Mission Board (NAMB) sends missionaries all over North America to share the gospel and start churches.  We usually take up a special offering during the months of April and May called the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. The monies given to this offering go directly to helping missionaries around North America.  As you pray, if you feel God leading you to give towards helping NAMB send missionaries into the field, you can give to the church and mark your gift for Annie Armstrong.
Check out this short video to catch the vision for becoming a light in your neighborhood!
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life.”

The Lord planted our church where we are to help our neighbors discover the light of life. So, we’re asking each member of our church to consider becoming a Light to their neighbors and living intentional pray-care-share lifestyles.

Becoming a Light is free and easy. You’ll receive a map and list of your closest neighbors, along with emails at the frequency of your choice to pray for your next five neighbors that day. When you get a chance, walk or drive by those homes as you pray for them.

To learn more about this opportunity visit the following link and watch the 2 minute video by Stephen Kendrick. When you are ready to get started, click the sign up button on the page.
