  Announcements (Nov 12, 2017):


Today we honor our veterans as well as fellowship with our annual Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone is welcome to stay to eat. There will be no evening service.

The hats, gloves, and socks we collected were delivered to Isom Elementary School this week. They were very grateful and excited to receive these items to complement their coat pantry. We look forward to this building a relationship with the school and those families in need.

We are in the process of updating the church directory. There is a copy to markup and update in the lobby. Please verify your information is correct and up to date. If you are not listed and wish to be (all are welcome) please add your information in the blank pages. Please initial your name if the information is correct already.

The senior luncheon will be held Tuesday 11/14 at Chicago's Pizza at 1pm.

Continuing Reminders:

Continue to review the constitution and we will be voting once pastor returns.

We will be having a monthly Womans Craft and Fellowship night which we intend to hold on a friday evening. Bring your crafts, a snack and a drink. If you do not do crafts please come for fellowship. We have not yet set the September date. If you have any questions see Donna Lappin.

If you have old empty computer printer cartridges you would like to recycle please bring them to the church and give them to LeeAnn Matthews. The church can turn them in to Staples to get credit for supplies for the church. 

A reminder that the start time for sunday evening service will remain at 5pm for the spring and summer.

Purchases can be made several ways for the NT commentaries introduced to us by Bro. Jeff Lewallen from Hyde Park Baptist Church in West Monroe, Louisiana. You can order directly from their website at, or talk with Pastor about placing an order, or talk with Chris Hall who has mail-in order forms.

Please talk with Bro. Marty Coffey or one of the other trustees about projects around the church related to the both the new addition and other tasks.

We are still looking for singers to perform. Please contact Bro. Steve Woodall if you are able to offer a special.

The adult sunday school class has planned monthly visitation in the local neighborhoods. Everyone is welcome to come so if you'd like to join them speak to Bro. Don Fields to inquire about times and details.

The Wal-Mart partnership has ended as the Greenwood Police have decided to discontinue the program. However we will be getting occasional donations from Dollara General. Once we determine the levels of donations we may ask for volunteers to sort and distribute the donations.

The bus ministry continues to look for additional workers to help with driving the vans and bus route visitation. If you are able to assist please see Bro. Steve Matthews.

There remain opportunities for service in needed areas of the church. Pray for God to send someone to:
A. Minister to young adults
B. Work in a sports oriented program for young people
C. Additional teachers and workers
D. For God to provide laborers for bible clubs
See pastor if you have burdens or ideas.

There is a sign up sheet in the lobby to help clean the church. If you are able to volunteer please sign up.

We have some who are in recovery from illness and hospitalizations. A phone call or card is particularly encouraging at times like these.

We continue to welcome new guests to our services. Should anyone have any questions about FBC let pastor know you would like time to chat or call him at 317-250-2430.

Please pray for Pastor's Wife Laura as she continues to battle her health problems.

For those who would like to help with pastors health expenses please use one of the offering envelopes and mark it specifically for that purpose.
