Pastor Post - March 1, 2017

Let me begin this week by saying a heartfelt "thank-you" to you, our sweet congregation. Melissa and I, and our children, were overwhelmed by your many expressions of love for us this past Sunday. It is such an honor to serve as your pastor, and it has been a wonderful five years. I am thankful for what God has done, and even more excited about what He is going to do! Thi...

We missed you all last week, but I am so thankful for Steve Harmon and the great word he brought from God's Word on overcoming fear with faith. It is an incredible blessing to pastor a church with so many gifted teachers. This past week has been one of "sharpening the sword" for me. I was able to attend a Pastor's Conference, and to observe another church this past Sunday...

Sunday was a fantastic day in the life of our church! We can feel the life of God's Spirit moving and working in our congregation, and it is wonderful. It was great to take a Sunday and walk with you through the "3 Circles" way of presenting the good news of Jesus. This built on the training we received during Sunday School a few weeks ago. It's incredibly helpful to thin...

This Sunday we are going to be talking about "Understanding And Sharing The Good News." Almost every Christian knows that they have a responsibility to share the gospel with others. Yet many of us struggle with that assignment, for various reasons. One of those reasons is that we lack confidence. We are afraid that if we try to share we'll get tongue-tied or won't have t...

Sunday was an exciting day, as we focused in both Sunday School and Worship on personal evangelism. Witnessing is something all of us are called to do. You don't have to be an extrovert or great speaker to speak to your friends about Jesus. Basically you just need love. The best witnessing flows out of an attempt to simply love people. Part of loving people is sharing the...

I pray that your 2017 is off to a great start! As we've been talking about on Sunday mornings, this is a natural time of year to reset priorities. So far in our "Reset" series, we talked about "Cherishing The Lord's Day" Hebrews 10:19-25 "Stewarding The Lord's Gospel" 2 Cor. 9:1-15 Meeting together for worship and stewarding the time, talents, and treasure God has gi...

It was great to be back in worship this past week, after the winter storm. We celebrated baptism, and talked about the importance of "Cherishing the Lord's Day," studying Hebrews 10:19-25. Verses 24-25 of that great text give this command: "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but ...

By now, hopefully, you have come out of "hibernation" from the first winter storm of 2017! We are blessed to have nice and warm places to stay in such times, but everyone is not so fortunate. As it turns out, FBC's week to do the CAPS overnight stay coincided with the snow and severe temperatures. I am so grateful for the volunteers who came in to serve our guests all week...

Happy New Year! I hope your 2017 has gotten off to a great start, and that the best is yet to come. That is always the case with Jesus. For FBC, this New Year brings great excitement. It is hard to believe, but only five years ago our family was praying hard about coming to serve here. God made it clear He was in it, and He led the way! It has been a wonderful season in o...

What a memorable day last Sunday was in the life of our church! Ingathering Sunday for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is always a highlight, but yesterday it was especially the case as hundreds of you streamed forward at the end of the service to place your offering in the boxes. As that was happening, I kept thinking of all the people who are going to be helped around...
