FROM THE PASTOR:

Work is really moving along on our new youth room.  The framing of the walls, sound booth, closet and stage are completed.  The rough in electrical is done as well.  The sheetrock is already up on the walls.  The hope is to have the sheetrock ready to painted by Monday, Oct.27.   Hopefully the new ceiling for the room will be installed by this weekend also.  Much thanks to all the men in our church family who have worked many hours thus far on this project.  You are all a real blessing to your church family and pastor. 

Please let me know if you are available to help paint the new youth room and the storage room next week.  We will begin painting on Monday, Oct. 27.  Any time, day or night, next week that you can help will be a blessing.    

This room is going to be a great space for our youth to meet.  I plan for us to have a dedication of this new room on a Sunday morning in the near future. 

A few other projects where help is needed in the FLC are as follows.  
1.  Refinishing the wood classroom doors in the FLC...Taylor and I are taking care of this project.  
2.  Wood baseboard trim needs to be replaced around the FLC gym walls in a number of places.
3.  Some minor sheetrock repair needs done in a few places just above the cove base in the bathrooms and kitchen before walls can be touched up with paint and cove base installed.

Email or call if you are willing to help with one of the projects above. 
The mid week service is a great way to get connected with other believers here at FEC.  A meal is provided to make it easy for those who work to be able to make it to the services on Wednesday evening.  Dee Votary does a great job preparing a meal for us to enjoy.  The fellowship around the tables with other members of the FEC church family is always a blessing as well.  The meal costs only $3.00 per person and no more than $15.00 for a family.

The prayer meeting group is doing a study with me on how our Bible came to be the canon of scripture.  We began this study last week so it is not too late to join us.  

I also highly recommend the Beth Moore Bible study, Children of the Day, that meets in the Truthseekers classroom.  The study is being facilitated by Leigh Ann.  

Keith Harvey is leading the men on a study of the book of Romans in the Believing Crusaders classroom.  This study is a great way for men to connect with other men and study God's Word together.

Taylor is leading our youth each Wednesday night.  I know you agree with me that we are so blessed to have Taylor and Amanda here at FEC.   I am so encouraged with how much support and excitement I see among the youth and their parents. Taylor shared with me earlier today what he feels led to teach during his class time tonight.   A good lesson for sure.  

The middle school group is under Layne's care.  I am confident  another great night is planned for this evening.  

Our children's workers, Sandy Chastain and Marcia Livingston, are leading a new ministry for our children from age 3 to 5th grade called Pioneer Clubs on Wednesday nights.  I am excited about this new ministry to our children that Sandy and Marcia felt led to pursue.  Volunteers are still needed in a variety of ministry opportunities.  See Sandy and Marcia and let them know of your willingness to help.

If it has been a while since you came to church on Wednesday evenings I want to encourage you to get back in the habit.  The mid week service provides an opportunity to break away from the world and reconnect with your FEC church family for growth, encouragement and fellowship.  Come out tonight.  You and your family will be glad you did.

Still believing God for good days ahead for us at FEC.  Know you are loved much by your pastor!
