A Word From Your Pastor:

June is upon us already! This month is packed full of activities in and around our church. Youth are going to camp at Crossings, SBC Convention and of course VBS. I hope you plug in where you can to make this a Great month for FBC C’ville.

VBS is our biggest event of the year every year and I hope we do our very best to make this the BEST VBS EVER at FBC. A great VBS includes help from any and all of our members. Please get with Kathryn and I’m sure we can find something for you to do. A great VBS includes sharing Jesus to ALL the children as they attend each evening. We are all about Jesus and this just isn’t another year for VBS but an important time to tell ALL the children and families if you get a chance about the One and Only Jesus our Lord and Savior.

Pray for safe travels to and from youth camp these next couple weeks. Pray for safe travels for Susan and I, as we go to Dallas to attend the National Convention for SBC. Youth camp is very important for our teenagers so pray for all the teachers and leaders as they instruct our kids into a better life with Jesus as the center.

Our recent baptism at the Neptune swimming pool was a Great experience for all who attended. Alexis is a gentle little spirit who we will nurture and mold into a beautiful soul for Jesus. Our children should be our top priority at all times at FBC. What our children learn about Jesus will carry them through their entire lives. Pray for our children and their spiritual progress as they grow into adults. Also pray for our adults that they mature into the people Jesus can use in the future.

In Christ,

Your Pastor

The countdown is on for GAME ON!! Our 2018 VBS will be held Sunday, June 17th - Thursday, June 21st. It’s hard to believe it’s less than 3 weeks away. Thank you to all of you who have purchased the items needed for snacks for our little athletes for Jesus! Our VBS team has been hard at work making preparations for a week of fun and learning about God’s love for us. Please be in prayer for our VBS team and the children we come in contact with. Also, if you know of any children we may need to reach out to let me know and I’ll be sure to get in touch with them. I would love for Brother Jimmy to have to pick up a van load of children each night!! And, as always, we’d love to have you on our VBS team, so feel free to join us!

Kathryn Waldrop, VBS Leader
