Dear Church family,
It has been a few weeks since I have written a letter to you and today, I want to share with you the names of those who have joined the church recently. We praise God for each person while recognizing the awesome responsibility of leading and encouraging them as they grow in the Lord. Each person who comes to FBC with a desire to serve the Lord will experience genuine community with God’s people. Thank you for being the loving family of God that you are!
New members since November 13 include Zachary Taylor by statement, Vanessa Hawes by baptism, Jayanand (Jolly) and Silviya Christian by statement, J. C. and Sheeba Stone by statement along with Jake and Jeff, their sons. The Beneze family, Jeff and son, Seth, come by statement, Randal and Rise (Reesa) Caldwell, with their children Aubrey, Gage, and Banks come by letter from Lake Shore Baptist Church. Eric and Jessica Woods, with their children Titus, Gracie, and Lucy come by letter from Mambrino Baptist Church. Ricky and Helen Wilson also come by letter from North Richland Hills Baptist Church. Praise God for bringing these folks to our church family.
Once again, I want to thank Adele Matthews, Julia Plaster, Kayla O’Quinn, Stacy Newman, Kelly Turner, and a host of other volunteers who decorated our church so beautifully for the Christmas season. I am amazed at the talent God has placed in our church and how they serve with such joy!
This Sunday night our music ministry will present Christmas Presence. Scott and the music ministry team will lead our church in a wonderful evening of worship and praise. I hope you plan to attend and bring someone with you. People are often open to attending Christmas specials and your invitation to an unchurched friend or neighbor might be well received at this time. It could make an eternal difference in their life.
In His love,
