CHURCH DIRECTORY
Have you ever recognized someone at church but forgotten their name? Have you wanted to send someone a birthday card but didn’t have their address? If so…you may be interested in this upcoming project. We are getting ready to create a new church directory! This directory will be available electronically and paper copies will also be available for a small cost ($7-prepaid). Stop by our table in the lobby on October 2 to get your picture taken and to update your contact information. We can’t wait to see you there!

PASTOR PRAYER PARTNERS
Beginning Sunday, October 2, at 8:30AM, Pastor’s Prayer Partners will meet to lay hands on and pray on and for and over Pastor Sam, and to pray for the Holy Spirit’s supernatural work in our church. This team will also be ready to welcome and pray for Pastor “Next” when he arrives.

NEWCOMERS LUNCH
Join us for our first “Newcomers’ Lunch,” Sunday, Oct 2, after the morning service.
We’ll provide lunch, share about the vision and ministry of Fellowship, introduce some of the leadership (elders, deacons, staff), tour the campus, and provide time for Q. & A. The program will be fast-moving (lasting an hour or less), and children are welcome to join us.
We’ll meet immediately after church in the large multipurpose room (gym) in the Adult Education Building. Lunch is provided, but we need you to RSVP. Register at bit.ly/NEW2FBC.

LIFE CHAIN SUNDAY
Life Chain is a peaceful and prayer public witness of pro-life individuals standing for 60 minutes praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of of conception until natural death. Sunday, October 2 from 2-3 p.m. in front of the Hobby Lobby/Mardel parking lot. 

DONATIONS FOR LOCAL MINISTRIES
During the month of October we will be collecting new supplies for two of the ministries that we will do projects for at our annual Friendsgiving event. We will be collecting twin size sheets, pillows, and blankets for Beds of Hope. We will also be collecting underwear, socks, and diapers for Legacy Closet. Please make sure all things are new and unopened. Both of these ministries minister to families with foster, kinship., or adoptive kids. We will then give the supplies to the ministries during our Friendsgiving event so you can even bring your gifts that day. What a great way to come alongside some families in our community. There will be a collection box in the Worship Center Foyer and in the TreeHouse Lobby.

MISSIONARY CHRISTMAS LETTER-WRITING AND OFFERING
On October 9 during the service, we will have a time for families and individuals to write letters to our missionary families. We will also collect a special offering to be divided between our supported missionaries. Thank you to all those who took a tag to buy gifts for our Missionary Kids! Please don’t forget to bring those gift back UNWRAPPED to the worship center no later than October 9.

YOUNG ADULT DINNER
There will be a Young Adult Dinner at Duane and Doanie Fredericks home on Sunday, October 9 at 5 p.m.. Contact Doanie Frederick at 831-801-5437 for more information.

BAPTISM
Baptism is a very important way to publicly communicate a believer’s faith in the Lord Jesus and commitment to follow Him. The next opportunity to participate in baptism will during the service on October 30. What a great way to celebrate what the Lord Jesus has done for us! If you or your child wishes to participate in this special event, please fill out the form at bit.ly/Baptize2022. You will be contacted to set up a time to meet with a pastor. The deadline for submitting a baptism form is Sunday, October 16.

MISSION TRIP OPPORTUNITY
Si hablas espanol, Pastor Sam and Ruthe invite you to experience God in Barcelona, Spain, Dec 10-17. We’ll be trained in how to share the gospel with Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists, and post-Christian Europeans. We will experience first-hand how churches can be planted and thrive in a culture where most have never heard the Gospel.
