September 1, 2022 Newsletter

Our Summer sermon series this year is, “He Really Said That?!”  We’ll take a look at some of the shocking statements Jesus made during his ministry. Statements like: 
  • Anger = murder
  • Being maimed > continuing to sin
  • Unless you hate your family, you cannot be my disciple 
These statements can be difficult to swallow in light of the kind, loving, Jesus that we prefer to envision.  However, Jesus really said this and a lot more. Check us out Sunday at 11 am to get to the bottom of Jesus’ shocking statements!

TeamKID is coming back here at FSBC!  We are super excited to be offering TeamKID again starting Wednesday, September 7th!   TeamKID is designed for Kids in Discipleship!  It features Bible memory games and application of Bible truths, engaging missions videos and activities, and fun activity-based learning all while helping your kids grow to be more like Jesus.  If you have a child who is 3 years old (as of September 1st) through 5th grade, they are invited to come join us each Wednesday from 6:10-7:30 PM.  You can pre-register your kids by clicking here.

We are excited to share that Betsy Betts is coming aboard as the TeamKID Director this year!  Would you be willing to help us share the love of Jesus with kids this year?  If you know you want to help us out this year, please click here to register as a volunteer!
Hey Church – 
The results from our recent survey regarding service time(s) are below:

Total voters – 79
9:30am service only – 13

11am service only – 34
Both services – 32 

While the vote was closer than many of you may have expected, we will be moving forward with a single service at 11am and Sunday School at 9:30am. We will continue offering in-home community groups throughout the week for all who are interested. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this decision or the vote in general, please feel free to contact the church office to speak with one of our pastors – 620-624-0186
Thank you to all who took the time to participate in the survey. 
Beginning Sunday, September 11, we’ll begin our fall teaching series called, “The Church Next Door”, a study of 1 Corinthians. 
Whether or not we admit it, most churchgoers have a “church crush”: a church or ministry that we look at and think, “Wow.  Now, that’s how you do church.” The tendency to look at another church down the road or online and think it has to be better than our local church is more than common.  As we dive into 1 Corinthians, we will dispel the myth of the perfect church and help us find joy in being part of the family that makes up our home church.
Dear Friends,
   Have you been participating in the life of First Southern Baptist Church for awhile now? Thank you! We are blessed to have you here.  Are you ready to take the next step?  We have a Membership Class coming up on September 11th following the morning service.  We will provide lunch and childcare (if requested) so that you can come and hear what it means to be a member of FSBC.  If you have questions about this class, please call the church office and speak with one of the pastors. If you would like to sign up to participate, please use this link.

We hope to hear from you soon!
God Bless,

The Staff at First Southern Baptist Church
Small Groups here at FSBC Liberal encompass a few different types of groups.  We have Sunday School classes that meet weekly all year long, we have Community Groups that meet in homes on various evenings, and we have special Bible Study groups that will meet for a specified time to study something specific.
As we head into the Fall, we are excited by the idea that every person in our congregation would be involved in a small group of some sort!  Are you in a group? Would you consider hosting or leading a group?  Pastor Jeremy would love to talk to you about the groups we currently have or about starting a new group this fall!  Click the link for more information or talk to Pastor Jeremy.
Women’s Bible Study is starting on Tuesday, September 13th at 9:30 AM in room 210.  If you are interested in this study, The Gospel of Mark,  please go by the welcome desk and sign up or call Shari Abbott at 620-655-6214 so we can get study books ordered.
