WHO’S YOUR ONE?
You’ve heard Pastor Scott ask this question as we think about reaching out to our community. We have some great opportunities in the upcoming weeks to invite people to our services. Our current sermon series is on the gospel, so now would be an ideal time to invite someone to come with you. In addition, we have the Frederick and Friends Christmas Concert on December 2 at 6:00 pm. This would be a wonderful opportunity to ask someone to come with you to this concert. Who’s your one? Who will you invite?
BIBLE READING FOR 2019
As part of our focus on growing as disciples, we will read through the Bible together in 2019. We will provide a reading plan for you, as well as links to apps that you can use if you read the Bible electronically. If you’d like to order a Bible that is already broken down into daily readings, we have a sign-up sheet at the welcome desk where you can order a Bible at a discounted cost (these Bibles are NIV).
Beginning December 2, Pastor Scott will lead us through a series on the gospel. This series will not only help us better understand the gospel, but equip us to tell others about the good news of Jesus. Each of these Sundays will also be a great opportunity to invite someone to come with you.
LOTTIE MOON CHRISTMAS OFFERING
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering enables International Mission Board missionaries to live and work at the forefront of a lost world and extend our witness through their full time ministry. Please be in prayer as to what the Lord would have you give. The goal for this year is $45,600.
LOTTIE MOON POST OFFICE!
The Lottie Moon Post Office is open. The Lottie Moon Post Office is an opportunity for FBBC attenders to ‘send’ Christmas cards to other attenders. It is only 25 cents to ‘mail’ a card. This is another way to give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.

WEEK OF PRAYER-JANUARY 6-12
As we seek to glorify God by making disciples of all the nations, one of the most critical things we can do is pray. As we seek to follow the Lord in this vision for our church, we will begin 2019 by making the first full week of the year (January 6-12) revolve around prayer. We’ll provide a prayer guide for you, we’ll have special times of prayer in the worship center, we’ll fast together, and we’ll put our attention on the Lord. Please join with us in this week of prayer!
Senior adults you are invited to attend one of Spring’s most exciting events, Spring Jubilee, April 8-10, 2019 in Branson, Missouri. Brochures are available in the foyer for more information. A deposit of $50 per person and filled out form are due to the office by December 26. The remaining balance of $50 is due March 27.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Thank you to all who helped fill boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Our church family filled 201 boxes which is the most we have done. This is a way to help spread the gospel to children in other countries. Samaritans Purse Ministry puts gospel materials in these boxes in their language that help these children learn about Jesus and how to give their lives to Him. Pray for the children who will be receiving these boxes you have filled and ask that these children will give their lives to Jesus and follow Him. We will let you know what country received them when we find out. Thank you again! You can start gathering things throughout the year for your box for next year.
