I love the fact that we recognize when a year ends and a new year begins. It gives us an opportunity to look back at some positive things from the previous year.  It also allows us to consider some things we could have and wish we had done better.  What is best to me about the changing of the calendar from one year to the next is the opportunity to look forward and refocus our lives on the things we feel are most important like our relationship with the Lord.

I want to challenge and encourage everyone in our FEC church family to consider again the importance and benefit of attending worship regularly in 2017.  For those who are not involved in a small group, I want to again recommend highly arriving early on Sundays and attending Sunday school.  Sunday School is a great way to connect with your FEC church family and grow in your walk with the Lord.  

I also want to encourage everyone to make the extra effort to come back out to church on Wednesday nights.  Wednesday night service is my second favorite service each week.  We have classes for all ages from nursery to the prayer meeting group.  The meal before the service is a blessing as well.  Come early and join with us in the FLC and enjoy the good food and fellowship.

I am still enjoying going through the Sermon on the Mount on Sunday mornings.  The Sermon on the Mount is one of the great passages in all of God's Word.  When Christ completed his message to those on the hillside Matt 7:28 stated "And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes."(nkjv)  May it be true that as we dig deeper into these words of Christ over the next few months that we will all be challenged, convicted and encouraged.

Keep inviting.  Keep witnessing.  Keep praying.
