Christmas Potluck Thanks!

Last Sunday evening was a delightful time of food and fellowship. Sincere thanks to all who came and to all who brought a dish. But especially to Anna and Paul Wollmann, Margaret and Herb Rempel, and Marilyn Maendel, our collective thanks for serving up a hot and delicious main course of turkey with all the fixings.

FBC Parking

In addition to street parking and the parking lot along the back lane of 600 Minto Street, both the Red Cross and the Accounting firm of KJL & Associates permit Faith Bible Church to use their parking lots at no charge each Sunday morning. Please do not park along the back of KJL as those stalls are always reserved for staff 24/7. If you are able, why not park a bit farther from 600 Minto and leave the closer spots for those who especially need them? Thanks!

Our Sunday evening services take a break for December but will resume on January 13 with the usual pattern of second and last Sunday of each month.

Faith Bible Church Radio Outreach Report (by Pastor Jim)

A year ago we were looking forward to the launch of FBC’s new radio outreach over five Golden West Radio stations in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. January 7, 2018 was the first half hour Sunday evening broadcast on CFAM (Altona), CHSM (or “AM1250” Steinbach), CJRB (Boissevain), CKSW (Swift Current) and CJSN (Shaunavon). The radio air time cost per week for all five of these stations is $200 plus GST. This is a tremendous outreach opportunity as the coverage maps show all of the key population centers in MB & SK are covered by these stations. I have also been regularly meeting and speaking with people who have heard these broadcasts. It is interesting to me that though various other avenues of outreach have emerged in our techy world, radio still has a place of real value. We have renewed our contract with Golden West for 2019 for these five stations at the initial rate of $200/week. We are also entering into a six month trial contract to use the CHRB (High River, AB) station at 7:00 pm each Sunday evening starting Jan. 6, 2019. This station reaches Calgary, Red Deer, Lethbridge and much more. The cost of $150/week on this one station underscores the kindness which has been shown to us in the pricing of the other five stations. To this point, the funds which were specifically given (about half was received last December) for radio work have carried the expenses of 2018. As we look to the opportunities of the year ahead we again ask that you would be mindful of this open door. If you wish to designate any giving in this direction, please print RADIO on your offering envelope and clearly specify what portion of your giving you wish to have directed in this way. Thank you!

Snow Clearing

In the confident expectation that we will get more snow this winter than we presently have, a few helpers would be appreciated who are acquainted with the proper operation of a shovel and broom. Please speak with Pastor Jim.

Carols for the King

Next Sunday, Dec. 9th at 2:30 and 7:00pm. at Grant Memorial Church (877 Wilkes Ave.) special Christmas music concerts and sing-a-longs will take place under the direction of Heidi Toews. Music old (2 Handel’s Messiah selections are included) and new (Southern Gospel Quartet). Faith Bible Church is assisting in this outreach as Katie Gibbons, Alex Hiebert and Conor McNab are sharing their talents in the orchestra. Free admission (even cookies and refreshments afterwards).

Faith To Live By Calendars

Scenic, scripture text wall calendars from FTLB are available from the entryway counter. Take one for yourself and another to give away.

The Lord’s Supper

At the conclusion this morning’s service, we will share in the Lord’s Supper. Participation is open to all who have confessed Jesus as Lord and who are seeking to faithfully and obediently walk as His disciple. As the servers pass the bread and the cups along the rows, please take a portion and hold onto it until all have been served. We will then eat the bread and drink the cup together and remember our Lord’s broken body and shed blood. If you are not a follower of Jesus Christ, please do not eat of the bread or drink the cup, but do stay with us as an observer.
