FREDERICK FAMILY CONFERENCE
Make plans to be with us on April 18! On that morning we’ll have a guest speaker, a special time of worship, and breakout sessions that will all focus on how we function as a faith family, and how parents and families can be equipped to live out their faith. This conference/morning of worship is one of our major steps in growing STRONGER this year. It is for every person at Frederick—you won’t want to miss it!
Join us for a 7-week study through the book The Meaning of Marriage by Tim and Kathy Keller.
We meet 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings, in room 112, beginning April 21st. A copy of the book is free for participants.

If you’re not familiar with Secret Church, it’s a six hour, focused time of study and prayer led by David Platt. This year’s focus will be on The Great Imbalance. Come join us from 6 pm to Midnight on April 23 as Secret Church 21 is about what should our priorities in life be? Together, we will look at what the Bible says about our life, our family, and our church. The cost is $5. You can sign up in the foyer.

GOSPEL CONVERSATIONS AND CHURCH INVITATIONS
In our foyer, you’ll see a picture of our city and a large board that says “Weekly Mission.” Every time you invite someone to church or have a gospel conversation, we’re asking you to put a tally mark on the board (as well as a first name or initials of who you spoke to). Then, every time you pass by the board, say a quick prayer for the people who have been invited or who heard the gospel. You’ll also find some cards next to the board that you can use to invite people to church. Let’s love our city and reach our city—together!
