May 28, 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.
You now have many safe and secure options for your giving towards FSBC, you may:

1. Mail contributions to –
First Southern Baptist Church
621 N Western
Liberal, Kansas

2. Drop off contributions to the church during office hours.

3. Use our NEW Online giving! You can do so from desktop or mobile devices   here:, or you can download our new Church Center App (details below)
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.
