Thanksgiving Eve Service

Join us Wednesday, November 26, for a special Thanksgiving Eve Service.  This will be a special time of giving thanks to God on the night before Thanksgiving.  After the service pie and ice cream will be enjoyed by all.  The event begins at 7pm.

“I Have Found the Secret”

In this society of instant-gratification, we often struggle with the issue of Contentment. Join us this Sunday as we dissect what exactly the Apostle Paul meant when he said, “I have found the secret of being content.” (Philippians 4:12 NIV)

National Prayer Gathering

National Prayer Gathering

Now is the Time to Cover our Nation in Prayer!

Join Pastor Jack Hayford for the National Foursquare Church Family Prayer meeting! Connect with the Foursquare family via satellite from hundreds of locations for an essential time of prayer, communion and worship during this important moment in our nation’s history.

All Foursquare churches have been invited to participate, and we will join together to understand God’s direction and extend His Kingdom in our country. Many offices will be decided in this fall’s elections, including that of our nation’s presidency, and we must accept the responsibility of seeking God’s face as His Word directs us. (See 2 Chron. 7:14; 1 Tim. 2:1-4.)

Family Life Church will be hosting this event live on October 26 at 6:00pm, and it will be held at our Washington Street facility.

Sunday, October 5, join us for one hour as we hold a silent “Life Chain” gathering on Washington Street.  We will hold up signs such as, “Adoption, the Loving Option”, “Jesus Forgives and Heals”, and “Abortion Kills Children”.

This annual event takes place nationwide, and Family Life Church has played a part for many years.   To find more about the Life Chain organization, visit their website: http://www.lifechain.net/

Church Picnic Photos

Family Life Picnic

The 2008 Church Picnic was a huge success!  The facilities were very accommodating to our various interests and everyone had fun getting to know each other better.  Special thanks to Bill & Linda Walters for securing the site, Cecilia DeCillo & Zhalom Lingad for organizing details, and the many others who labored long and hard to make the picnic a smashing success!

Photos from the picnic can be seen HERE.

“Who Are We?” Class

One advantage of not having Sunday school during the summer is that it gives Pastor George a chance to conduct his “Who Are We?” class.  This is a class for people who are new to our church or people who have been a part for a long time, but feel a little rusty on aspects of our church like the beliefs and governance.  It is ideal for the curious or for young people who are “coming of age.”

There is lots of time for questions and for those who desire, it is a great step towards membership.  If you have never participated in this class before, this is your opportunity.  It begins sharply at 8:45 a.m. (held in the downstairs room beside the kitchen) on these dates:  June 22, June 29, July 13 and July 20  (No session on Sunday, July 6).

Picnic Info

New Date: Saturday, August 16th, 2008

Due to the fact that an inordinate number of families are not available on June 28th for the church picnic, the church council requested that we endeavor to find a new date

It was not easy at this point in the year to find an alternative date and site, but thanks to Bill & Linda Walters, we secured a pavilion at Mallard Ridge Park in Lindenhurst.

The park offers a pavilion, baseball diamond, volleyball court, sandlot volleyball and more!
