What’s Happening this Week at FBC?

To everyone who volunteered to make last Tuesday’s Fall Fest a fun and safe experience, we say “thank you.” We could not have a successful event without your help. We hope you had fun.

As you prepare for Sunday, don’t forget to “fall back” Saturday night. Then, on Sunday morning, we will continue our series on prayer. Sunday, we will consider “Praying Together.” In fact, we will take a little extra time in our service to do exactly that—pray together.

As we look ahead just a bit, on Sunday, November 19, several important events are happening on this one Sunday. First, this is the day that we will perform two annual tasks. We will have the opportunity to adopt the operating budget for 2018 at the Annual Church Conference during the Evening Service. A presentation and discussion of the annual budget will take place on Wednesday, November 15, at 6:00 p.m. The Ministry Action Planning Team will be meeting next week to finalize the proposed budget.

We will also close nominations for deacons on Sunday, November 19. We have mailed you a list of those men who are currently deacons and a blank ballot for you to nominate up to 15 men. The purpose of supplying the list of current deacons is to remind you of who is presently serving as a deacon and, therefore, does not need to be nominated. Please remember to turn in your ballot on or before November 19.

As you pray about your nominations, please study Acts 6:1-6 and 1 Timothy 3:8-13 for a foundation of what God requires for the service of deacon. In addition, please remember that we ask all nominees to be a member of First Baptist Church for at least one year. I will share a message about the service and selection of deacons Sunday night.
