Pastor Post - November 1, 2023
This Sunday we will dig into chapter 5 of 1 Timothy, and talk about “Life in the Body” from 1 Timothy 5:1-25.
This is a chapter in which Paul is addressing a number of topics with Timothy, all of which impact the health of the Body of Christ, the church. I’m excited about mining these treasures with you!
It has been a great Fall here at FBC. Wasn’t it great to see over a thousand people from our community at Trunk or Treat? Just walking around that night, I was so proud of the way our FBC people related to people from our community. We have a very kind and loving church family. That makes an impression on people, and who knows how the Spirit will use that down the road?
We are looking forward to our 5K this Saturday, which will benefit Send Relief. With the war in the Middle East and the Ukraine, multiple earthquakes, and the global hunger issues that were made far worse by Covid, we live in a world full of hurting, hungry, and homeless people. Send Relief is one of the best things Southern Baptists do…we are right there on the front lines, showing compassion and sharing Christ. Our 5K is named after Bobby Saunders, our brother now in heaven, who had such a big heart for people and the nations. Come on out this Saturday morning, and walk, run, or just cheer others on and enjoy the fellowship.
Finally, a heartfelt thanks for Pastor Appreciation. Again, we have such a loving church! Your love makes shepherding a joy, not a burden (Hebrews 13:17). It is an honor to be a part of your lives, and to serve the King with you.
I’ll see you on Sunday. Come prayed up…come with Bibles…come with friends.
By His Grace, For His Glory, To The Nations,
