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

Tornado Relief

Tornadoes devastated parts of Kentucky over the weekend, and our neighbors to the South are in need of help. Many have lost their lives and more are left lacking basic life necessities due to the tremendous damages.

A small team from FBC will go down to Dawson Springs, KY on Saturday to meet with a local connection and survey how we as a church can help moving forward. Anyone can help by bringing non-perishable foods, water, and baby items (diapers, wipes, etc) to the church building. This is something that people in Dawson Springs and other places in Kentucky will need for the foreseeable future, so we can continue to collect those items far beyond this Saturday.

If you would like to bring items to the church building and are not sure if anyone will be there, then contact me (John): 812-550-4077.

If you have questions or want to help in addition to bringing items, then contact Neil Bryant: 812-499-3242.

Christmas Party

Merry Christmas, Family Bible Church!

Our church Christmas party will be this coming Sunday (12/12) at 5:30pm. As always, feel free to bring any friends. We’ll eat together, play games, and fellowship in celebration of our Lord’s coming to the earth as a baby. Pizza and cookies for decorating will be provided.

Here are the 2 things each family needs to bring: Your own drinks & a wrapped white elephant gift for a fun gift exchange. 1 gift per family. Don’t bring anything expensive. It can be something from home that you’ve been wanting to get rid of!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon,

John

No Sunday school

With it being Thanksgiving weekend, we will not have Sunday school. We will resume Sunday school on December 5th.

Hope you all are enjoying the holiday weekend and time with family!

No Sunday school 11/14

Family,

We are looking forward to a full day of fellowship on Sunday (11/14). The members meeting will take place immediately after the 10:30am church service and the barn dance will begin at 5pm.

Given the additional events that day, we will take a week off from the normal 9:30 Sunday school hour. People are welcome to still come to the church at 9:30 to help set up the room for the barn dance that evening.

Sunday school will resume the following week on 11/21.

God bless,

John

Barn Dance and Canned Peas

Here is what you need to know about the upcoming Family Bible Church Barn Dance and also a way we can support the Rescue Mission’s Gobbler Gathering by collecting canned peas.

First, the barn dance. It will be on November 14th at the church building starting with food at 5pm. Square dancing will follow around 6pm. We have an official square dance caller coming to direct the dancing, so be sure to dress the part and find yourself a partner! The dancing and food will be inside. A hay ride and a fire will be outside.

The men’s ministry has an opportunity to serve the rest of the family by men bringing their best chili/soup. There will even be a competition for the best one. Whoever plans on bringing a chili/soup needs to let either Ken Hansen or Keith Findley know so that an accurate amount of food is provided. Please contact us if you need to get in touch with them but do not have their contact info.

Everyone please bring your own drinks and a side or dessert to share.

Now, the canned peas. The Evansville Rescue Mission has served those in need by supplying a Thanksgiving meal each year. We can take part in serving by collecting canned peas for the distribution.

We need to collect 500 cans of peas as a church! Bring your cans to the church building by November 16.

See you all soon,

John
