Newsletter Week of September 25

Spark Children’s Ministry

Children in grades K-5th grade are welcome to join us as we learn about the Bible and being a Christian in age appropriate and engaging ways.  Children will sit with their family at the beginning of service, then be released from worship after the first  three worship songs.  A teacher will be at the back of the worship center to lead them to the second classroom.  Parents are then asked to pick up their kiddos from there after service.

IGNITE Youth

On Sunday, October 8th immediately after church will be a parent and youth meeting about some exciting special events in our ministry.  Please make it a priority to attend.  If you cannot be there, contact Abby, to get updated on the discussion and receive the documents discussed.

Two Church Appreciation Nights at the Music Hall

Thursday, October 5th and Friday, October 6th at 8:00 pm

The Main Street Music Hall is offering Faithbridge the opportunity to attend both of their regular season shows at a discounted rate. You can go to the Thursday, Oct 5th show, “REELIN IN THE YEARS” or Friday, Oct 6th, for their traditional show, The Main Street Opry”.  Both shows will be a “Buy one, Get one Free” opportunity. Both shows offer an evening filled with fun melodies, emotionally charged music, laughter and shared memories that can be enjoyed by audience members of all ages. Their goal is to provide you the opportunity to see first hand the high caliber of entertainment they strive for, and they have continued this spirit of dedication into their 24th Season of Christmas Shows!

 Preparations are being made for another joyous season of “Christmas on Main Street”, and they would love to be included in your holiday plans. There will be a special group rate available to our church for the Holidays; come this Sunday for more information.

Remember, for the reduced rate, all tickets must be purchased through the church office. For information, see Tina.

Good Neighbor – “Throw more parties”

I don’t know about you, but I was never taught that partying was a central aspect to being a good disciple.  In fact, I was taught quite the opposite.  Countless school teachers, Youth Pastors, and family members told me, “Don’t get into the partying crowd.”  I grew up believing that parties were, to some extent, inconsistent with the Christian faith.  And then I read the stories of Jesus.  Over and over in the Bible Jesus is found at a party.  What does this mean for us as Christians today?  I think we should be throwing more parties.  Join us Sunday as we discuss what it means to be a Good Neighbor.

Blessed to bless,

Pastor Andy
