Hey Church!

If you’re reading this post, this is for YOU!! 
On Friday, May 20, we are asking EVERYONE who calls FSBC home to pray and fast with us! Here are the details:
  • What’s the purpose of a fast? 
The simple purpose of fasting is to let the pangs of hunger remind you to pray. Fasting leaves you in a vulnerable state and when partnered with prayer, leads to greater dependence on God. 
  • How long are we fasting and praying? 
Sunup to Sundown (about 7am to 9pm)
  • What are we fasting from? 
Usually fasting is geared towards abstaining from food. However, we understand that due to health issues, not everyone can fast for 14+ hours. If that’s you, you might consider fasting from social media, your phone, TV, news outlets, etc.  
  • Why is FSBC Fasting and Praying?
We’re fasting and praying for the church at large, but very specifically, for our children’s ministry. We’re asking God for guidance as we continue the search for a Kids Minister, asking God to move mightily among our kids, and we’re asking for God to “send workers into the fields” – with the transition in leadership and summer vacations, we have several holes to fill within our volunteers for Nursery and Children’s Ministry.  

At 6:30 that Friday evening, those who are available will gather for worship and prayer. We’ll praise God for his provisions, and pray together for His solutions. PLEASE put this on your calendar and make plans NOW to join us! 

Come & Go Farewell Reception
for Marilyn Marchel


Saturday, May 21st
from 2:00 – 4:00 PM
at FSBC Fellowship Hall


No Gifts are Requested
There will be a basket for cards

Marilyn has been in Liberal for many years teaching school & very active here at FSBC doing many things over the years.  She has moved to Cimarron, KS. to be closer to her kids & grandkids. 
Come by and tell her how she has touched your life!  If you can’t come on the 21st, you can send her a card to the church (621 N. Western Ave.  Liberal, KS.  67901) and we will get the card to her.
Hey Church Family,
      With summer just around the corner, our annual youth summer camp will be here soon.  Our hope this year is to take 70 campers (students and sponsors).  We are well on our way to this and we’re seeking out members of our church family to partner one to one with each of our campers in a program we call “Adopt-A-Camper”. Here’s what we are hoping for from each person who partners with us:  

     1. A financial donation of any amount.  This donation will help defray the cost of camp for all of our students. All donations will be spread across all campers. 
     2. A commitment to pray.  When you agree to adopt a camper you will be given a prayer band to remind you to pray for our campers in the week leading up to camp as well as during Super Summer.  I will additionally send out prayer prompts by text to help guide you on how to pray for our students. 
     3. A commitment to encourage. As camp approaches you will be paired with a particular student.  You will receive a picture of them so you can put a name with a face. Using this we are hoping you can encourage your student before and after camp. Additionally I will provide addressed envelopes so you can send notes of encouragement to your student which they will receive while at Super Summer. 
      We are looking for 70 adopters, to cover every one of our campers, so chances are we need you! Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us?

Amer & Vicky Safadi: The Gospel in Their Heart Language
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
 
Amer and Vicki Safadi weren’t sure at first that Cincinnati was where God wanted them to plant a church. They’d been there before, just after leaving the Middle East, and it hadn’t been easy.
But then they met Travis Smalley, lead pastor of Lakota Hills Baptist Church, who said his church wanted to come alongside them. And then when the Safadis moved there from Milwaukee, God immediately began putting Arabic-speaking neighbors in their path in providential ways. Within three months of planting a church, they had 55 Arabic-speaking people from eight countries, and new people continue to come through its doors each week.
The livestream ministry they started during the COVID-19 pandemic now reaches Arabic Christians and non-believers around the world.


Prayer Requests
  • For the Safadis to have favor with the Arabic-speaking people they meet and for God to orchestrate those meetings.
  • For the Arabic church in Cincinnati to continue to grow in reaching its city and beyond.
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!
The video is available for your viewing pleasure at
https://vimeo.com/645365474

        Brianna McKinney: Showing Love to a Lonely City   
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

Brianna McKinney says for many people Denver is a lonely place. For community, they might go to a coffee shop where they’re surrounded by others — but they’re still alone.
And the chances are slim the gospel will make it into their personal space. The city only has one evangelical church for every 32,000 people. To put that in perspective, there’s one marijuana dispensary for every 2,000 people and one brewery for every 7,000.
But through the ministry center where Brianna serves as a journeyman, she and her teammates are seeing relationships built and people saved as they work alongside missionaries and church plants. They’re reaching out to a nearby refugee school, ministering to the homeless, mobilizing teams of student volunteers and doing food distribution to families.
This year, “the mission has moved forward,” Brianna said. “We are just in need of more laborers.”


Prayer Requests
  • For more workers to feel called to Denver to work alongside missionaries and expand their ministries.
  • For perseverance for Brianna and her team in Denver who are working to love their city well.
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!

    Steven & Cindy Martins: Seeing the Gospel Move House by House

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
 
In the past couple of years, Steven and Cindy Martins have become good at inviting themselves to other people’s houses. They’ve got thousands more they want to visit, but that number is getting smaller.
 
In the area where they live — the Niagara region of Canada — 89-90% of the population of 400,000 doesn’t believe in God. Since planting Sevilla Chapel in 2019, Steven and Cindy have been strategically and intentionally going door to door in the city of St. Catharines. They’ve been sharing, and people are listening.
 
Their church — which worships in Spanish and English — is reaching family after family with more than eight countries represented, both Latinos and other ethnicities who find the warmth of the Latino community comforting. “People in our city struggle to find community, satisfaction and hope. That’s why God called us here,” Steven said.
Prayer Requests
  • For Sevilla Chapel to continue making disciples in a challenging community.
  • For Steven and Cindy to have favor as they knock on doors and share the gospel.
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!

          Jared & Jennifer Huntley: Deployed for Christ                
   Annie Armstrong Easter Offering


Jared and Jennifer Huntley had a heart for military personnel long before they launched Pillar Church of Washington, D.C. Jared had served in the Army and knows firsthand how difficult it can be to navigate the unique challenges of the military culture—especially without Christ.
Now the couple is discipling and equipping military personnel and their families to follow Christ, share the gospel and be missionaries if they are moved to other bases or deployed. Jared says to him, it’s a “great way to accomplish the Great Commission.”
“They’re already transient,” he said. “If the government is already moving these people all around all over the place naturally, why not … see that as an opportunity to say, ‘Let’s disciple these families and then they’re going to take the gospel with them everywhere.’” 

Prayer Requests
  • For Jared and Jennifer to have favor on military bases and in the community.
  • For God to open hearts among military personnel and grow them in their faith so that they can go as missionaries to their future assignments.
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!

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

WEST AFRICANS TAKE LEAD IN SHARING BIBLE STORIES
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

Mrs. Lombena transitions with ease from the standard West African greetings into the story of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery.
The Togolese man listening to the story is quickly attentive to her vivid storytelling. What follows is a lively discussion about the truths and implications of the Bible story she had crafted into his native tongue.
With sincerity on his face, he asks her to pray for him in the name of Jesus, the One who came not to condemn but to save. Rev. Essodina Ayewa, her trainer who has been watching from the side, steps up to lay hands on the man as they pray.
Lombena, along with nearly 40 other students, has recently graduated from a three-year program at the Baptist Bible Institute of Togo (IBBT). For the first time, their curriculum includes training in orality methods — one component of which is the art of crafting and sharing biblical stories with people who prefer oral communication methods over written ones.
“We hear about the joy that animates the people who listen to the Bible stories all the time,” reports IBBT director Rev. Dombe Tchalaré. This has led him to require that all students receive the training, and he envisions creating a dedicated “School of Orality” within the Bible institute.
Ayewa highlights how the orality training has been an important complement to their classic theological education.
The orality education is also unique as the first training in Togo being led entirely by African believers who were originally trained by IMB missionaries.
IMB missionary Katee Sheppard*, alongside a team of nationals in five countries, has been effectively using Bible storying for over a decade in a ministry to truck drivers. She says the drivers are normally closed to gospel conversations, but they love the stories.
Katee’s team understood the value of training more people and, to date, IMB missionaries have equipped more than 25 national orality trainers across several African countries. Together they have led orality workshops and seminars for thousands of believers representing dozens of languages.
Evangelist Seni Zoungrana is one of the trainers who leads orality workshops. He discusses both the joy and responsibility given by
 Revelation 7:9.
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!

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!

Dear First Southern Baptist Church,

Thank you so much for the delicious meals you provided to our family on Wednesday evenings.  
We also thank you for the many prayers and cards sent to us when dad and then mom passed away.  
Your church family showed us much love and kindness during the time of our loss.

In Christ’s Love,
Karen for the Walt & Sue Ediger Family
