Secondly, I ask that you pray for our students. They are an important part of the church and they need our support. There is always a need for more involvement in our student ministry. Pray for the Lord to send more workers in all areas of our church.

OUR NEW LOGO My prayer is that by now you have begun to understand the importance of Making, Maturing, and Multiplying disciples. This is the command Jesus gave us as individuals. But He also gave it corporately to the church. I want to remind you of a few things. •

A disciple is one who is following Christ, being changed by Christ, and carrying out the mission of Christ!

It is the job and privilege of every follower of Christ to be a disciple of Jesus.

Two questions for every follower: who are you helping to become a disciple, and who is discipling you?

The business of the church is to make disciples!

As we are going, let’s make disciples of all people!

A Picnic to Remember by Dave Roberts, Interim Recreation

O

ur Church Picnic—held on September 10 at Ben Hawes Park—was a time to encourage one another and experience

life together. In other words, we were “maturing” relationships and building the body—both spiritually and physically. It is not often that we get to fellowship as a church in such a flawless setting—outdoors with perfect weather and outstanding food. As Rick Warren mentions in his book, The Purpose Driven Life, “fellowship for a church is more important than any individual.” A great number of folks attended—from children to seniors—spending time playing, conversing, and, of course, eating. Thanks are extended to those who assisted with set up, the many cooks from home, and those men on the grill. The chicken and ribeye sandwiches were well received, as were the salads, vegetables, and desserts. Preparation for next year’s picnic will include a method to speed up service because great food deserves great service, so plan on attending. We would greatfully accept any suggestions you may have for improving the picnic. Please contact me, Dave Roberts, at droberts@fbcowb.org or 270683-3505 if you have a suggestion to share.

completed their walks. Thanks to all those that served—most wearing the green “Serve Owensboro” t-shirts. Now let us pray that the seeds that were sown sprout into making disciples. To God be the glory! “Jesus said, ‘Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again—ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life.’” —John 4:13–14


Know Your

Deacons Andy Anderson and Chet

Wiman are two men of God tasked with the mission of

caring for our church's needs.

ANDY ANDERSON

Andy Anderson When did you become a member of FBC?

Wanda and I joined FBC in May 2007.

What passage of Scripture has recently impacted you? He will never leave me or forsake me (Hebrews 13:5). Whatever the situation I have been in or I am in, I can recite this verse and know He is with me.

What are your prayers for the congregation of FBC? My prayer for our congregation is that we will have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, be faithful in our service to Him, and pray for our pastor and staff as they lead us.

CHET WIMAN

Chet Wiman

Keep them in your daily prayers as they seek to serve our congregation and pursue unity in the church.

When did you become a member of FBC? We have been members of FBC for the last 13 years or so.

What passage of Scripture has recently impacted you? As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us (Psalm 103:12). I made my decision to follow Christ as an adult, not as a child. When I came to this decision, the guy that was ministering to me pointed out this key passage to me. His point was that if God can forgive people of past sins, shouldn't we be able to forgive ourselves? It's a great passage that I try to use when I can.

What are your prayers for the congregation of FBC? I routinely pray that we would have an impact on our community that would lead to revival that would spread across the state and the country. October 2017 | 13

Donation bins are located in the Fellowship Hall and on the third floor. With your help, our children collected over 1500 items last year! Help us surpass that number this year!

SEEKERS WOMEN'S PRAYER GROUP Monday, October 2 & 16 at 6 PM Seekers use the privilege of prayer to lay personal, church, national, and world concerns before our sovereign God. Over the past two years, we have witnessed the hope, love and faithfulness of Christ through answered prayers.
