Pullin’ Weeds

Dear Family,

The weeds in our landscaping along the front of our building have gotten out of control. Our lawn care contract does not cover such maintenance and so it is up to us to keep it looking good. I am launching an assault on the weeds this Saturday morning at 8 AM while the building will provide shade for a couple of hours. If any of you can come and help, I would appreciate it, and you will experience the therapeutic joy of feeling the rascals come away.

Thank you!

Pastor Colin

Women’s Ministry Events

“Painting with Pookie” was a hit for the ladies this week!

More women’s events are on the horizon. Click here to view a flyer with information about those upcoming women’s ministry events. Copies of the flyer are available at the church building if you’d like to have a physical copy.

We will make announcements at church services as those dates approach.

Lunch and Grimm Baby Celebration

Dear Family,

It was great to enjoy breakfast as a church family a few weeks ago, so we’ve planned another opportunity to eat together. Please mark your calendar for a barbecue lunch after church on Sunday, July 25th. The church will provide the barbecue and dessert. Please bring a side to share and drinks for your family.

During lunch we want to celebrate with John and Allie Grimm as their baby (our first FBC staff baby) is due September 2nd. To show our love and support for them, you can choose one or both of the following: bring a package of diapers (any size, any quantity) and/or donate any amount of money toward one of the bigger items that they need. If you would like to donate money, there will be a container by the bulletins the next two Sundays marked for the baby gift. Please put cash or a check made out to Family Bible Church with “baby gift” in the memo line. If you prefer to mail the money, send to: Family Bible Church PO Box 3891 Evansville 47737-3891.

We are grateful to be able to fellowship together again and celebrate with the Grimms!

See you Sunday,

Pastor Colin

The Gospel Coalition Conference

The Gospel Coalition 2021 conference is hosted in Indianapolis from April 12-14. It is a conference held every other year in which attendees learn from well-known and respected evangelical pastors and teachers from across the country. There is an option to attend the conference in-person or watch virtually.

Colin and I (John) have not been to the conference before but have heard wonderful things about it and strongly support anyone from our congregation in taking advantage of the speakers’ sound teaching. This year, the theme is “Jesus Is Greater” as the keynote speakers teach through passages in Hebrews. Along with listening to the speakers live, all registrants receive a set of Christian books for further reading.

This is a post to gauge interest in the conference. If there are people who would like to either attend the conference in Indianapolis or watch together online, then we will get a group together. Colin and John do not plan on attending the conference in-person. Please text John at (812)-550-4077 if you are interested.

If you are interested in the conference then you have three options.

  1. Attend the conference in-person
  2. Attend the conference virtually
  3. Do not attend but watch the videos of the speakers for free online after the conference ends (will not receive books)

Missionary Flip Charts

Family,

We are currently working to update missionary flip charts. The flip charts have served as aids and reminders to pray for the missionaries we support as a church around the world. If you have a flip chart from the past year or two, please bring it to the church building and place it on the table by the kitchen. As they are updated, we will let people know so that they can take the new ones home.

Thanks,

John
