FROM THE PASTOR:
What a good day we had in God's house last Sunday. Good worship and good fellowship. I love it when so many present are participating in worship. It really sets the table for the preaching of God's Word and prepares our hearts to hear from the Lord!
I pray the ladies of the church have a great retreat this weekend at Camp Grace. I know well the many hours of prayer and preparation that Leigh Ann and the ladies on the retreat committee have put in preparing for the retreat. May God bless their labor of love and the gathering of ladies this weekend with His presence is my prayer.
The men of the church will be attending a Men's Retreat on January 8-10 at the Adrian Camp and Conference Center in Adrian, Ga. This is a really good retreat with an excellent speaker, Dr. Stan Toler, scheduled to speak this year. I will attend the retreat and encourage the men of the church to join with me, the ministerial staff and the other men from FEC who are planning to go. Know that the food at the retreat each year is great, the facilities are nice, the fellowship is meaningful, the worship is real and
the messages are relevant and just what is needed for men today. The free time on Saturday afternoon to get to know each doing something each man enjoys is a real plus as well. I encourage the men of the church to sign up this Sunday at the welcome station or the table that will be set up in the foyer.
As most all of you know yesterday was Veterans Day. I really enjoyed seeing some of the tributes on television and the internet to our veterans and their families. I am proud to live in a country with such dedicated men and women who serve faithfully all over the world so that we can be free. We will take time to recognize the veterans in our church family in the morning service this Sunday.
I really encourage everyone to get involved in a small group at FEC. The relationships formed with other believers in these small groups on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights are long lasting and endearing. Plus, we all grow closer to the Lord and each other when we regularly attend a small group. I prayerfully encourage everyone in our church family to make the extra effort to attend one of the small groups on Sunday morning and/or Wednesday night.
Keep inviting. Keep witnessing. Keep praying. Still believing God for good days ahead for us at FEC. Know you are loved much by your pastor!
