Faith’s Family Fridays

“Family Fridays” are a new ministry venture for Faith Bible Church as we seek to continue ministry to our teens and enhance ministry to our young families. This past Friday we had a wonderful evening of food, fellowship and fun with a devotional from Psalm 23:1 to wrap up the evening – “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” A Family Friday evening of caroling is set for Dec. 8 starting at 7:00 p.m. at Calvary Place Personal Care Home (1325 Erin St.) with food and a gift exchange to follow. ALL young families and guests are welcome to share in these events. For more info please speak with Pastor Jim.

Adult Sunday School

Today was part three of a six week study on “The Gospel in Deuteronomy.” Why was it that Jesus quoted more out of Deuteronomy than any other book in the Old Testament? And why in His wilderness temptations did He go to Deuteronomy all three times? Come and learn more as we dig into Moses’ final great messages each Sunday at 9:30 a.m.

Men’s Chorus

All men are invited to join a chorus which will sing Sunday morning, December 10. Rehearsals will be held immediately following the morning services – Nov. 19, 26 & Dec. 3 (today and next two Sundays).

Next Sunday Morning

Next Sunday Thor Kvist is our pulpit guest and will preach from John 17 “Jesus Intercedes for Us.” The first reading will be from John 16:5-15 and 17:1-5.

Our Daily Bread

The December, January and February pocket sized edition of this daily devotional is now available from the entryway counter. FREE for you to take and USE!

Semi-Annual General Meeting

The FBC SAGM was held last Sunday at the conclusion of the morning service. If you are interested to learn more, report packets are still available from the entryway counter.

Sunday School Needs

Last Sunday there were 18 kids in the Sunday School session held during the morning sermon time. This is a wonderful answer to our prayer that the Lord would give us greater opportunities to proclaim His word here in “Our Jerusalem” and beyond. But it does also mean a bit more help (on a rotating basis) would be greatly appreciated. Please speak with Gayle McNab for more info on how you might help.

6:00 @ 600

Our next Sunday evening service is Nov. 26th. Pastor Jim will preach from Genesis 23 “Those Who Died Confident of the Promise.” Join Us!

Christmas Potluck

Our annual Christmas Potluck is just two weeks away! Please see the sign up page in the entryway. We ask surnames beginning with A-N bring a (generous sized) dessert, and surnames beginning with M-Z bring a (generous sized) salad. If you forget the entryway page please RSVP to Anna Wollmann.

Union Gospel Mission Christmas Preparations

Our friends at the Union Gospel Mission are thinking ahead to the ministry opportunities of December and the New Year and are appealing for help with Christmas gift bags. These are their ‘Christmas gifts’ to the needy of their area. Based on past history, they require about 300 for men, 200 for ladies and 100 for children for the various programs. These can be filled with things like: For adults: • razors • shaving cream • shampoo • socks • winter gloves/hat • tooth paste/brush • hair brush • deodorant • Bible • Christian book or CD. For children: • new unwrapped toy • new teddy bear • Bible • winter mitts/hat • Christian book or CD. Please label the bag to indicate if it is for a MAN, WOMAN or CHILD.
ALSO – New Year’s Day (Christmas) Street Meal to be held Monday, January 1, 2018. The UGM will be serving over 300 guests a full Turkey Dinner. They need our help in putting on this event: • Volunteering (they need 40 to help greet, serve and pray). • Donating food (turkeys, potatoes, mixed vegetables, pies and juice). • Donating gift bags (see information above).
If you can help with any of these needs please contact Rosanne at 204-943-9904 Ext. 226

“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity.”
2 Peter 3:18

Voices from the Street

Copies of the brand new Christmas 2017 edition of the Union Gospel Mission’s “Voices from the Street” colourful and informative newsletter/magazine are available from the entryway counter. Here is the front page article by Frank Ulrich, the UGM’s Executive Director.

Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Merry Christmas from your friends at Union Gospel Mission. Jesus truly is the reason for the season. He is our hope in this world and our free gift of salvation; thank you Jesus!

The focus of this edition of Voices from the Street is our Vision 20/20. This initiative focuses on being good stewards of what God has entrusted to us as a Mission by maintaining and upgrading the four ministry buildings in Winnipeg. Please visit our website at www.gospelmission.ca, click on Donate and then click on Vision 20/20 to stay current on what projects we have been able to take care of as well as additional opportunities you can help us to deal with. (Please see the middle section for more details)

Christmas time is a time when many people gather with family and friends to celebrate Jesus coming into the world. However, in the seven ministries that we work in, we find that this time of the year is especially hard for the people who we work with, as they find themselves in situations where they do not have healthy relationships with loved ones. Please pray for those we serve, that God would comfort them and most importantly that they would invite Jesus into their hearts.

Our prayer is that Jesus would fill your hearts and minds in a very real way this Christmas season as you celebrate Jesus’s birth.

Hebrews 1:1-14

1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,
2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the angels did He ever say: “You are My Son, today I have begotten You”? And again: “I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son”?
6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “Let all the angels of God worship Him.”
7 And of the angels He says: “Who makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire.”
8 But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”
10 And:“You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
11 They will perish, but You remain; And they will all grow old like a garment;
12 Like a cloak You will fold them up, and they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will not fail.”
13 But to which of the angels has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?
(New King James Version)

6:00 @ 600

Do join us for this evening’s service. Pastor Jim will preach from the exciting account of Genesis 22 “For Sudden the Worst Turns the Best”.

Faith Bible Church Membership Covenant

We, the members of Faith Bible Church, do join together in the fellowship of the Gospel. We covenant together, God helping us, that we will love one another, pray for one another, and seek to help one another grow in the grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We will put away from us all bitterness, wrath, anger, and evil speaking; and we will be kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven us.

We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together for worship and service, but will honour the Word of God and will seek to follow those who have the spiritual rule over us.

We will be good stewards of all that God has given us, and will give as God has prospered us, not grudgingly or of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.

We will seek to win others to Christ by sharing the Gospel in word and deed. As we have the opportunity, we will do good to all men, especially those who are of the household of faith.

We will strive to carry out His commission to spread the Gospel throughout the whole world.

This we will do all while looking for the blessed hope, the soon coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May each of us be found faithful at His glorious appearing and may we all hear the Master declare “Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.”
