This year’s MEGA SPORTS CAMP VBS program will be taking place July 21-25 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

Free dinner will be included every night and volunteers are needed!  If you would like to help or have any questions, please contact the church office ASAP!

This Sunday: “i hate my life.”

i hate my life.

Have you ever felt like your life was beyond hope? Do you ever wonder if you’re so far away from God that He must’ve forgotten about you? Do you ever HATE your life?

This Sunday, don’t miss a message about the life of Jacob, a man who physically wrestled with God over his circumstances in life and from that experience, went on to change history!

Note: You can download the audio from this message here.

GROW Classes

GROW Classes will resume on Sunday, September 8th. GROW (Getting Rich On the Word) groups provide a “smaller setting” than the Sunday morning service, where questions, discussion and relationship is encouraged. Meeting for one hour (prior to the 10am Worship Service) in areas across the building, there’s a place for every age. Plan now to make GROW a priority for your life and family this fall!

Vacation Bible School

ALL KIDS ARE INVITED! We will be having Vacation Bible School on July 15-19 (9am-11:30 am). If you are interested in helping with VBS — there are still many needs from crafts to games to snacks! – please contact the church office or talk with Abbey Kadera this Sunday!

Just for Women

Every woman is invited, Saturday, June 1, to a gathering JUST FOR WOMEN. It will be in FLC’s Conference Room, from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. with breakfast & childcare provided. With Aksana Kaefer, we will explore “Rebekah” (key scriptures are: Genesis 24 and 25:19-34).

– You must show evidence of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ

Philippines House Build!

This is a very big week in the life of our church! On Wednesday morning, Herman Ignaco and Mark Jones head to the Philippines to build the new house for Pastor Gil Barcelo and his family. This is the fulfillment of a dream! In case you are new to our church, we helped start the Tres Cruses Foursquare Church in the Philippines. We were soon blessed with Pastor Gil Barcelo who was willing to move his family to Tres Cruses and start the work out of a home. After the church began to grow, our church built a new building in Tres Cruses. The next logical step was to construct a new house for the pastor, since the existing house was sub-standard, to say the least. A new parsonage is a way to invest in the church for years to come.

Our church easily grabbed hold of the vision and raised the money necessary to build a simple home. It took about two years to raise $16,000 and another year to go through the legal hoops necessary to transfer the property properly. We kept with it and now, with the Lord’s help our dream is about to become a reality! Please uphold Herman and Mark in your most regular prayers!

The church’s Facebook page will have the latest photos and updates on it — like it to stay up to date!
