Women's study, The Wisdom of God, begins tomorrow (Wednesday) evening, September 20. All women are invited to join in this video-teaching series as we discover Jesus in the center of Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon. Led by Laurie Charette in the Lounge from 6:00-7:30pm.
Men's study, The Cure (Co-Author Bill Thrall), begins Friday morning, September 22. All men are welcome to join this study through the gospel led by Tim Rygh. Breakfast will be served at 6:15am - meet in the north side of the Fellowship Hall.
If you like to serve and chat over a cup of coffee - consider grabbing a friend and signing up for a Sunday morning (or two) to help at our coffee kiosk. It's not hard, it's a guaranteed opportunity to meet new friends and reconnect with old friends. Talk to Shirley Kieffer to get the details (thank her for all the years of helping run this much appreciated ministry) -701.772.1058 or sign up on the sheet at the kiosk.
**Please note** The Marriage Enrichment Sunday School class has moved to Room 210 (NW corner of Fellowship Hall) - Pastor Scott leads the discussion of Biblical principles for loving your spouse well.
Check out the new video
from Petr Coufal updating us on the Olomouc Baptist Church (OBC) cinema project. It's on Facebook (search for Czech Cinema Challenge) and on our FEFC website http://www.faithfree.com/ccc
- OBC is waiting on their final construction permit from the city of Olomouc with hopes of beginning construction in late September. The goal for completing construction is now the fall of 2018.
We are pleased to be helping financially with this project for our sister church. If you have made a pledge to the Czech Cinema Challenge, then you should have received an update in the mail within the last several weeks showing your pledge and gifts given so far. Please be aware that this mailing is not a receipt, just a status report for your information. We request that all pledges be turned in by the end of 2017 to wrap up the campaign. If you would like to designate a gift to this exciting project, place your check in an envelope, label it "Cinema," and place in the offering plate on Sunday, give to Bonnie Kossow, or turn it in at the Information Desk. You can see a weekly financial update in the bulletin
We would like to thank you for your prayers of safety, red-tape paperwork, permits being granted, and your financial support of this opportunity.
