Fall is almost here, and you know what that means? It’s time for FBCC’s Homecoming! Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Sunday, October 7th at 10:45 AM for this special date.
This marks the 121st anniversary of the founding of our church and we are just getting started! From humble beginnings, our church has served as the beacon on the hill, shining God’s light on our community. He has blessed our church in many ways over the past 121 years, and 2018 has been no different. We’ve added many new members, hosted over 300 people at our 10th annual Easter Egg hunt, shared the gospel with 140 children during VBS, supported Ross and Angela Floyd in Bogota, Colombia as full-time missionaries, began a weekly prayer time from 9-10:30 every Sunday morning, and continued our men’s and women’s Bible studies. Our Clothes Closet ministry continues to grow and has become an amazing ministry tool to meet the needs in our community and build relationships with those that live in our surrounding neighborhoods. We invite you to come to the basement of the sanctuary to see our updated Clothes Closet.
Our pastor, Clint Watson, will bring the gospel message from the Word on this Sunday morning. He and his wife, Peggy, have been such a blessing to our church and we are excited for you to hear from him this year. If you were with us last year, you heard his vision for the church and what he is asking God to do in and through us as we spread the supremacy of God by treasuring Christ together and building laborers in the local church. In addition to hearing the Word preached, there are rumors that Joy Gilbert is planning something “flashy” as a choir special, so you won’t want to miss that.
As always, we hope everyone will bring a covered dish or two as we gather for lunch under the big tent after the service. Our Hostesses and Deacons will be on hand, starting at 10 AM, to receive the food and assist you into the church. During lunch there will be lots of fun time to relax, share old stories, and make new memories.
As you can see, great things are happening at First Baptist Church of Chattahoochee...and we look forward to sharing them with you.
Chairman, Board of Deacons
