                          Brand New Fall Teaching Series!!

Beginning on Sunday, September 5, we will start our Fall teaching series: Holy Ghost Stories, Astonishing Tales From the Book of Acts! 
This series will take us through 13 different accounts of the Holy Spirit leading the early church of Jesus Christ. This is such an exciting teaching series because the same Holy Spirit that equipped the early church to serve, love, and impact their world for Jesus is the same Holy Spirit who is at work in us today! Don’t miss it! Be sure to bring a friend along! 
 The church office will be closed on Monday, September 6.

         2021 Viola Webb Offering for State and Associational Missions
Every fall FSBC collects the Viola Webb Mission Offering. This is a split between KNCSB (Kansas Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptist) and WKBA (Western Kansas Baptist Association).
“Celebrating 75 years of sharing the Gospel in Every Town, City and Campus” is the offering theme for 2021-22.
This offering will help support KNCSB church planting, collegiate work, church health, and disaster relief. It will also be used by WKBA for Hispanic outreach and ministry, starting new works, bivocational pastoral support, and education.
The offering is named for Viola Webb who led Kansas-Nebraska Woman’s Missionary Union for 1959 to 1982. KNCSB named the offering in her honor after she retired.
Our goal for this year’s September – October offering is $2,000.
This ladies Bible study will be starting on Tuesday, September 14th at 9:30 AM here at the church.  If you are interested in this study, please call or text Shari Abbott at 620-655-6214 so enough books can be ordered.
