FROM THE PASTOR:


The youth did a super job taking charge of the morning service yesterday.  The youth were the greeters, the ushers and led us in worship prior to Taylor sharing the morning message.  I must say it was a really good day in God's house.  Taylor and Amanda are doing an awesome job leading our students.  Let's continue to encourage our young people in their walk with God in the days ahead. 

It is a goal of mine for 2015 to see a higher percentage of our congregation attending a small group on Sunday mornings and/or Wednesday nights.  I pray each of you will consider arriving a little earlier on Sunday mornings at 9 am and begin attending one of the classes that meet in the education building and FLC.  We have classes for all ages from nursery through our Golden Heirs group.  The children and youth really enjoy their classes and, at the same time, learn so much about the Lord.  There are five adult classes including one for young adults that meets in the classroom across from the SS office, the Truthseekers class that meets in the room next to library, a singles class that meets in a room on the back hall of the education building, the Pathfinders group that meets in the room next to the youth room in the FLC and the Believing Crusaders (seniors) group that meets across the hallway from the children's church room.  Contact me, or, SS small group leader, Randy Woodard, if you have any questions.  We will be happy to help you get connected.  

On Wednesday nights we also have age appropriate groups meeting from nursery age through adults. Sandy, Marcia and their volunteers lead our Pioneer Clubs ministry for children where much fun and good teaching is taking place.  Sandy and Marcia could always use more volunteers. See them as God stirs your heart to do so. Layne works with our middle school
group back in the FLC.  Most nights the middle school group and the youth meet together in the youth room.  Taylor Carter is doing an amazing job leading our youth.  It is so encouraging to hear about the good things taking place back in the youth room on Wednesday nights. We also have some really good adult studies taking place on Wednesday nights.  Leigh Ann leads a Bible study for women on Wednesday nights in the Truthseekers classroom where the ladies are now doing a study called, The 7 Experiment, by Jen Hatmaker.  Keith Harvey leads the mens group in the Believing Crusaders classroom.  I am leading a study on the book of Revelation with the prayer meeting group in the choir room on Wednesday nights.  

The relationships formed with other believers in these small groups on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights are long lasting and endearing.   We all grow closer to the Lord and each other when we regularly attend a small group.  I prayerfully encourage everyone in our church family to make the extra effort to attend one of the small groups on Sunday morning and/or Wednesday night.  

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