STEP INTO THE WATER………….
Wade out a little bit deeper
Wet your feet in the water of His love
Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God

We raised the roof this past Sunday at FBCBC.  I am so thankful for our church and the way we come together and open our hearts to worship.  

We do know that just our coming together and raising our hands for worship is not pleasing to the Lord unless we are willing to live out that worship in our lives.  

We have been given a challenge to live out our faith for all to see.  A challenge to pray for our church and ourselves that we would be the light for all to see by our neighbors and our community.

“What you do says more about what you believe than what you say”.

Let’s be about the work of the Lord and show our families and friends just who this Jesus is.  He lives in us!

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL ...
I want to take this opportunity to thank our choir for all of the dedication and hard work they have put in since August 2021.  

There are several who have taken on the major drama parts and others who have stepped up to take other roles as needed.  The entire choir has to be versatile, for this musical is different than the ones we’ve done in recent years, and they have stepped up to the challenge.

This choir is the heartbeat of the musical and there are many hours of hard work put in.  Please remember them and all of us in your prayers.  This work is being done to glorify our Father and we are all in one accord toward this endeavor.

For His glory,
Debbie

KING OF MY HEART . . .
Let the King of my heart 
Be the wind inside my sails
The anchor in the waves
Oh, He is my song.

When we think about the start of a new year, it usually comes along with making resolutions on something we want to change in our lives.  The last few years have been so tumultuous that, as for me, the resolutions have changed and become much more than losing a few pounds, etc.  

Our Pastor’s message yesterday hit real close to home.  He wants our church family to rise up as a people of faith and effect our community for the Lord.  

When is the last time I prayed about something other than a personal request for me or my family?
Do I read my Bible on a regular basis?

I believe those are very worthy resolutions to make, or very wise intentions.    

If, in fact we act upon what we believe God is telling us to do, then we will rise up as that people of faith and our lives and the lives of our community will change.  

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL
As we move quickly toward April, and our scheduled performances of our musical, we are getting into the “crunch time” mindset.  

We are back at choir practice on Sundays and drama practices on Monday’s and Thursday’s.  We are completely relying on God to guide and direct this musical, as it is a powerful evangelistic tool.  

Please keep praying that we listen to His voice as He leads!

Through faith and for His glory,
Debbie

JOY TO THE WORLD . . .
We continue to enjoy our beautiful Christmas decorations in our sanctuary each Sunday as we join together to worship our Lord, and to celebrate His birth. This past Sunday was no exception, as we sang about His birth and recounted all our blessings as we sang the song, That’s Why We Praise Him.

There are so many reasons to praise God, but during this season of Christmas, so many blessings come to light. One, and not the least of these, is family. We look forward to seeing ones who we don’t get to see very often and it is a joy.

I loved the sermon yesterday as our Pastor pointed out how we need to be intentional with our putting God first in our celebration. It’s easy to get with family, open our gifts, laugh and talk and reminisce about all the old times and forget what the season is all about. Forget that the reason we have our families is because of God and His creation.
But, of course, the ultimate, indescribable gift that God has given us is Jesus.

He came to live, live a perfect life
He came to be the Living Word, our Light
He came to die, so we’d be reconciled
He came to rise to show His power and might
That’s why we praise Him!!

MORE THAN JUST A MAN . . .
We continued choir practice this past Sunday for our Easter musical and I thank everyone who was able to attend. It is a very busy time for us all and not everyone could make it.

I hope and pray that you all are having a wonderful Christmas celebration and that God’s blessings fill your life.

We are taking a break this week from drama practice. I love you all and thank you so much for the part you are playing in our musical.

Through faith and
For His glory,

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR…
This past Sunday at FBCBC was a joyous celebration from the children singing, the joining of our hearts in worship and the word from our Pastor.  We are so blessed that each week the Holy Spirit comes into our midst and we are able to experience Him in a powerful way.

The powerful message of faith is one that is so needed right now in our lives, at least I know in mine.  We have learned that faith is hearing from God, believing what He says and acting on that belief.  

This is how God wants us to live our lives.  Mark 11:24……”therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”  When we ask God for something, if we don’t believe, why ask?  We need to thank Him in advance for what only He can do and then look for how he answers our prayers.

VINTAGE TASTE OF CHRISTMAS…
When our church gets together and decides to do something, God provides every person needed to make it happen.  What a wonderful time we had at our annual Taste of Christmas.  We went with a Vintage theme and the people who decorated absolutely outdid themselves.  Thank you to all who had a hand in the decorating, you are wonderful.

Thank you to all the singers who joined in and “dressed the part”.  We had so much fun with the costumes and singing the age-old Christmas carols we all love.  

What a great time to be a member of FBCBC!

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL…
We continue our drama practice this week, but will take Christmas week off to be with our family and friends for our Christmas celebrations.  

The Lord is still sending exactly who we need to fill these drama parts, which only He can do.  This is a faith-filled process!

Please keep praying that we listen to His voice as He leads!

Through faith and
For His glory,

GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN . . .
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

If you walk into our sanctuary at FBCBC you will see it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  You could feel the excitement in the air before our service started.  Everyone was visiting and welcoming each other.  It was a wonderful sound.

Our mission at FBCBC is to go and tell the good news about Jesus to our community.  There is no better way to tell about Jesus, than to be Jesus to the people around us.  

Our 1st Saturday was held this past weekend and we gave away toys.  It was very well attended and I was thankful to be a small part in it.  We saw many families come through that needed this help and were thankful for it.  Hopefully, they felt the spirit of our Lord that day and will carry it throughout this Christmas season and it will spark something inside of them to make them want to seek a relationship with the Lord.   

“...do not be afraid.  Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord . . .Exodus 14:13
This scripture is stuck in my head as our Pastor reminded us of it and I keep reminding myself the truth in it.  No matter what is going on in our lives, if we do all we can and then just stand, we can see the Lord work His will out in our lives.  We will see the goodness of God!

“All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God”

He is good and He loves us!

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL . . .
We are back working hard as the Lord keeps showing us what direction to go with our musical.  He gives us people stepping up and as they do it opens up more opportunity for this to be a truly worshipful experience for all who attend. 

Please keep praying that we listen to His voice as He leads!

Through faith and For His glory,

WAYMAKER . . .
Miracle worker, promise keeper
Light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are

I hope everyone enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday.  Mine was filled with joy, laughter and tears.  Isn’t that what life is about?    

I lost a niece over the holiday and was thankful to be in the area where she lived to be able to help with the plans and some of the facilitating of her service.  The last 10 years or so of her life was filled with addiction and everything that comes along with that.  This was one of those situations where it wasn’t her choice that got her in this situation, but she was there none the less.  The entire family was affected by this addiction and the sadness of her loss was overwhelming.  

Kim was a fun-loving person and had a spirit that couldn’t be ignored.  So, she left with us many stories that we were able to share and enjoy and laugh about.  The room was completely packed with family and friends whose lives were touched by Kim in a positive way.  

The joy of it all was the fact that many years ago Kim accepted Christ as her Savior and so she left this world to go be with her Lord.  She also left a lot of love that we will always remember.  No more suffering for Kim.  

There was not one person in that room any worse or better than Kim.  We all have our issues and problems and that is why Jesus went to the cross.  We were thankful to be able to share that message that day and if Kim was watching, I know she was filled with joy that her life could bring some meaning and the message of Christ to others.

MORE THAN JUST A MAN, EASTER MUSICAL . . .
We had a wonderful choir practice this past Sunday and got a lot accomplished.  We are continuing drama practice this week, so anyone in the drama, please check your e-mail for the drama schedule.

Please let me know by text, if you will not be able to come to practice.  

We are asking our church family to please pray for us as we continue on with this endeavor in presenting the gospel to our church and community.

Through faith and For His glory, 
 Debbie
