A Word from Pastor Dan

We have an important meeting for our members coming up this Sunday, March 3. We are having a called business meeting on that day at 4 PM to review the proposed budget for 2019. After the presentation of the budget and all questions have been answered the church will then vote to approve or not approve the recommended budget for this year. It is important that our members attend the meeting so they can familiarize themselves with the budget document and see the giving needed for the year to meet the financial obligations of the church. I encourage all our members to attend this very important meeting in the life of our church.

In an effort to make sure we have Sunday School classes for all age groups I will begin a new class on Sunday, March 3, at 9:30 in our education building behind our fellowship hall and nursery. This class will be for our college students and young adults who are now beyond the age to attend our student Sunday school classes. I know we have some of our students who will be graduating high school in May and will also need a class to move into from our current student class. The new class will be using a DVD curriculum featuring Pastor/Speaker Louie Giglio and the title of the study is “Relat (able) Making Relationships Work”. I look forward to personally leading this class and helping our young adults build good and right relationships in their lives to help them become the persons God intends for them to be. Please pray for this class and God’s direction for our young adults.

I will begin a new series of sermons this Sunday, March 3rd. From the Gospel of John, we will be looking for the articles that we find around the cross where Jesus was crucified. Items such as the crown of thorns, the cat of 9 tails, the signboard, the hyssop branch with a sponge, the roman spear, and the seamless robe. All these items help us understand the meaning of the crucifixion of Jesus. These messages will take us to Easter when we will celebrate the empty tomb and our resurrected Lord.

Our 5th Sunday in March (March 31) will again feature our students as they will participate in our Worship service and Pastor Joseph will be bringing our message.

We have designated Sunday, April 7, as a “Celebration of the Bible Day”. We will have a Gideon speaker that day who will take approximately 10 minutes to share with us the how the Gideons are giving bibles throughout the world. We will hear from some of our students who are memorizing the book of James and I will bring a message on just how amazing and miraculous the Bible is.

I pray that everyone who reads this newsletter will come and be a part of what God is doing and wants to do at The Fellowship at Field Store.
