Pastor's Paragraph, 5/15/2018
Dear Church Family,
We are beginning our process of electing potentially four deacons to serve FBCBC. Packets are available across the church and at the office. These will contain information concerning the timeline, list of men, constitutional requirements, biblical qualifications, and ballot for voting. Please read over these carefully as you prepare to make your selection for nominating a person to this position. Each church member will be able to submit a single name for a deacon candidate with the ballot containing the voting church member’s name as well. Also, be aware that we will be utilizing the historic practice of FBCBC in applying the “husband of one wife” (1 Timothy 3:12) clause to mean a deacon candidate cannot have been divorced. It is a humbling and exciting time as we elect new deacons to be a vital part of propelling FBCBC forward in connecting Christ with people.
Amy and I are on vacation this week taking a driving tour of places we have never seen. We intend on driving north then swinging through South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, etc. before heading back. We both are thankful to unplug and refill our tanks by being able to witness some of God’s magnificent creation. We are blessed to serve Christ with all of you at FBCBC and are praying for God’s continual blessing upon us as we follow Christ. Pray for us to be refreshed and renewed by God’s presence and love during this time.
Sunday you will have the opportunity to hear one of our own preach God’s Word. Billy Manning will be preaching in my absence. He is a powerful and passionate preacher so you do not want to miss it. Billy has been a gift from God to me personally and we are blessed to have him (and his family) as a part of FBCBC.
FBCBC is where the “impossible” is happening everyday through Connecting Christ to People. Let us continue to Connect, Celebrate, Contribute, and Invite 3.
For His Glory,
