Volunteer for Runners Camp

We have announced Runners Camp 2022 at Family Bible Church over the past couple months. The camp runs (pun intended) from June 13-17, 5:30-8:00pm. We are less than 7 weeks away from the first night of camp! You can register a camper or sign up to volunteer today. Please, if you plan on volunteering then sign up asap so that you may be placed in a helpful role and that we may have accurate numbers for a t-shirt order.

Maybe you are wondering how you could serve at Runners Camp. Hopefully this helps. Our greatest need by far is for more age-group leaders. They function as camp counselors who spend each evening leading the same group of 5-10 kids through a devotional and then from station to station. Age-group leaders have the privilege of sharing the Gospel with campers. We would love to fill as many of these spots as possible with people from Family Bible Church. College students home for Summer are a great fit for this role.

If you are a high school student, consider signing up to serve as an assistant age-group leader or in the games crew.

If your mobility is limited, then your help is needed on the Registration team.

We also need help with coaches for each of the track and field events. If you know people with such experience, then let them know about this opportunity to volunteer and direct them to the Runners camp website: https://runnerscampevansville.com.

Contact me, John, if you have any questions about registration for campers or volunteers. Or, feel free to submit a question on the contact us page at the church website.

Runners Camp Door Hangers

Family,

We will get together for an all church event this coming Sunday (2/27) to hang door hangers throughout a few Northside neighborhoods. As of now, it looks like it will be 50 degrees and sunny on Sunday.

We will meet at the church at 4pm to gather into groups. Each group will be assigned a particular neighborhood. We will go hang as many door hangers as we’re able then return by 5:30pm to eat dinner together.

BBQ and sides will be provided. Please be sure to bring your own drinks, though.

If you are not able to participate in hanging the door hangers then please still feel welcome to join for dinner.

See you Sunday,

John

All Church Game Night

Church family,

We will get together this coming Sunday evening (1/23) for dinner, fellowship, and fun at 5:30pm at the church building. Fried chicken will be provided. You can bring your own dish if you’d like something else. We ask that each family bring a side or dessert to share. Please also bring your own drinks and your favorite family-friendly board game and/or card game.

After dinner, we’ll informally play games in small groups as we continue to fellowship. Come even if you have no desire to play games. You can watch others or fellowship with those not playing. It will be an easygoing night, so feel free to play, watch, or do a little bit of both!

See you Sunday,

John

Sunday school

We will have Sunday school at 9:30am tomorrow before the main church service at 10:30am.

We have taken a break for the past several weeks but will offer Sunday school classes for all ages the hour before the main service moving forward unless otherwise announced.

See you at church,

John

Sunday school Update

Family,

We will return to Sunday school at 9:30am before the 10:30am main service this upcoming Sunday (1/9). This applies for all classes EXCEPT the adult class.

I, John Grimm, will lead the upcoming adult class. However, there is currently a positive Covid case in my home, so we will miss church on Sunday. With that said, the return of the adult Sunday school class is postponed until 1/16. All other classes will resume this coming Sunday (1/9).

Though the restart for the adult class is postponed, we’d like to provide some information about the focus of the new class. Starting on 1/16 and ending in May, the adult class will walk through Family Bible Church’s Doctrinal Statement. We will study the foundational beliefs that we hold on as a body of believers which God has made known to us in His Word. You can read the statement on the What We Believe section of the church website.

This class is designed for people of a wide range of biblical knowledge stretching from nearly none to extensive. Everyone needs a firm, theological foundation and nobody stops learning about God. Now, the word “doctrine” might sound dry to some, but I assure you that God and the truth revealed to us in His word are anything but dry!

It is my prayer that we grow in faith and love of God by learning and reminding one another of His glory.

Looking forward to being back with you all,

John
