2. FBC’s 16th Anniversary, 4pm @ Hope Center, Saturday, 11/5/11.
We are holding a celebration for our church’s 16th anniversary. Come join us in thanking God for all that He has done for our church over the years! Jeddy will also be officially installed as a minister that day. After the celebration, Jeddy and Greg will both depart for their Pastoral Vision Trip to Africa.
3. African Pastoral Vision Trip – 11/5/11 to 11/18/11.
Jeddy and Greg will be going to Africa with World Vision on a vision trip to see how our church can serve the people in Africa. Agape’s dinner fundraiser last week helped raise over $200 for the trip! Praise the Lord. They still need $1,000 to fully cover the cost of the trip, please keep praying for the finances and the entire trip in general!
