A Message from our Pastor

http://66.132.136.177/uploads/pastorpic.jpg

I said earlier this summer that things don’t really slow down here during this time of the year and here’s more proof.

Depending on when you’re reading this, we’ve either just wrapped up or are preparing to wrap up another year of Vacation Bible school at our Church at Sheppard campus. Just think, we only began this ministry a couple of years ago and God continues to bless in a big way there.  Young hearts and lives are being touched in our campus there.  Thanks to everyone who helps to make this possible, especially Sherrie Carter, our Director of Children’s Ministries, Denise Roberts, our Director of Preschool Ministries and Deidra Thompson, our Director of Preschool and Children’s Ministries at the Church at Sheppard.

Another block party is planned for our Church at Fort Sill campus this coming weekend, July 26.

Volunteers from here continue to help with this exciting new ministry.

Meanwhile our Orphan’s Embrace missions team has spent this past week ministering to the staff and children at New Horizons Ranch in South Texas.  Our team has been bathing this trip in prayer as they anticipated not only working on the facilities there, but also sharing the love of Christ in a very tangible way with the children there.

Our Orphan’s Embrace Ministry will also be sending a team to Haiti for the first part of August to partner with FBC former youth minister Carl Toth and his Orbie for Orphans Ministry helping the children of that nation. Thanks to everyone who sponsored the purchase of one of the water bottle/hygiene kits that will be given to children there during this mission effort.

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
