As you know Family Bible Church will be partnering with Samaritan’s Purse on a mission trip to Pearland, TX July 1-6 to help rebuild homes that were flooded or destroyed during Hurricane Harvey last fall. We hope to send a team of 12 people and we still have some spots available. Participants must be 14 or older and no construction experience is necessary, though certainly desirable. If you want to go, it is time to decide as we plan to purchase plane tickets within the next week.
The total cost per person (mostly air fare and vehicle rental) is about $700. Of this cost, FBC will be providing $300 per person from our missions budget. Participants will provide and/or raise support for the remaining costs. If you are unable to go but would like to help provide for others to go, you can contribute by check payable to Family Bible Church in the offering on Sunday morning or by mail to:
Family Bible Church
15515 Husky Way
Evansville, IN 47725
Please mark checks “Texas Mission Trip” in the memo line.
I you would like to join us on the trip, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make travel arrangements.
Please pray that our church will be a blessing to families who have suffered.
Ladies, please mark your calendars and come join us for a Family Bible Church Women’s Ministry event:
“Laughter is good medicine” so we want to chase away any winter blues all this snow has brought!
Join us Wednesday, January 24th
7-8:30pm at Family Bible Church
We will enjoy some games, videos and laughter together.
No need to bring anything unless you want to bring a friend.
Questions or to let us know you are coming, please contact Sarah Aiton (812.499.5131) or Paula Runyon (812.430.1205)
Despite all my planning for this weekend, several texts and emails have alerted me to the fact that I have failed to send out the times for our services on Christmas Eve. We will worship at 10:30 AM on Sunday morning and also at 5:00 PM. The two services will be different so I hope you will join us for both.
He is still Emmanuel,
Here are the details for our Christmas party this Sunday afternoon, 12/10 at 4:00 PM: We will meet at FBC at 4, and then visit our neighbors at North River Health Campus for some caroling from 4:15-4:45. We will then reconvene at FBC for dinner and games. Pizza will be provided as the main course for dinner. Families with last names beginning with A-L please bring a salad or appetizer; M-Z families please bring a desert or cookies. All families please bring your own drinks. Cups and tableware will be provided.
Please join us to sing and celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus and enjoy each other’s company.
See you Sunday,
Sunday we will have a church breakfast at 9:30 in lieu of Sunday School. Breakfast will be hot and ready for you! Please bring your items for your family’s Operation Christmas Child Shoebox. We have 20 boxes that were ordered from Samaritan’s Purse so we can use these to fill or you may bring your own box if you so desire.
Items to fill the box – if you need ideas of what to put in it – the best people to ask are our little FBC members – the kids themselves! If you have questions about what is allowed or not allowed please check here for further instructions.
Please note that Samaritan’s Purse asks for a $9 donation per box to help with shipping expenses. This can be made online and will include a “Follow Your Box” tracking code enabling you to see your box’s destination. Alternatively, you can include cash or a check made out to Samaritan’s Purse inside your box.
Savannah will have the family pictures she took last week and her camera to take more if needed this coming Sunday during breakfast as well. We have notecards you may use to put in the box with your pictures so we can write a personal note to the child that God picks to receive your filled shoebox.
If you have any questions or need anything at all please call or text Holli Sullivan 812-204-1993 or Chad Sullivan 812-204-1534 and we will get you an answer!
Excited to see you all Sunday!
Heads up – Please put Nov 5 (*only 2 Sundays away*) on your calendar for an all-church breakfast at 9:30am to fill Operation Christmas Child boxes.
This Sunday, October 29, we will have handouts, details on what can/cannot go in boxes and Savannah Sullivan will be taking pictures (this Sun & next) of kids, families, individuals — whatever you would like so we can include that picture in the box so the sweet recipient knows who packed & is praying for them!
We have some football related fun and service opportunities this week at Family Bible Church this week.
On Thursday, October 12, we will be hosting a dinner for the North Huskies football team at FBC. If you are able to come early to help set up for the dinner, preparations will begin at 4:30 PM. If you are able to bring a dessert, please bring it by 5 PM. I hope you will join us in supporting our neighbors.
On Friday, October 13, FBC will have an all-church Tailgate Party at 5 PM prior to the North/Central football game. We will have corn hole, can jam, a bonfire and will begin serving hotdogs and hamburgers at 5. Please bring your own drinks and lawn chairs.
I will look forward to seeing you at FBC,
