For Our Guests
Thank you for honoring us with your presence today. Our guiding verse is “For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.” (II Corinthians 4:5). With that in mind, we’d like to ask all first time guests to fill out the “We’re Glad You’re Here!” card in your guest pack so we can know how best to be your servant. We ask that you place the card in the offering plate as it is passed. If you prefer you may fill out an online guest card at chinagrovefbc.com/guests

Extended Session
If you cannot serve, please call your substitute so your time will be covered

Hear…Pray…Act – This week we’re praying for Patrick Warutere who pastors North Raleigh International Church in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Patrick and his wife Pauline minister primarily to the Kenyan, Nigerian, Syrian, and Democratic Republic of Congo population in Raleigh.  Patrick is from the Kikuyu people in Kenya, where missionaries were sent to plant churches one hundred years ago.  Learn more about how the IMB is reaching the world by visiting IMB.org/articles/

Unreached People Group – This week we’re praying for the Brahmin people of India.  The Brahim people are the highest caste in Hinduism and live at the highest level of the Indian society.  They play an active role in politics and the government.    Because of their position and status, they are very prideful.  With zero known Christians among them, please pray that they will hear of the saving relationship found only in the One True God, Jesus Christ.  To learn more about Unreached People Groups, please visit joshuaproject.net

Vermont 2020 – We will be in the NorthEast Kingdom ministering to the people of Vermont July 17-25.  Plans are well underway which currently include evangelism, soup kitchen and construction.  Participants must be at least 21 years-old or accompanied by a parent/guardian.  Participants 18 years-old and older must submit to a background check.  If you are interested in learning more about the mission trip, please see either Chad or Amanda Lewis.

Community Garden – Are you interested in helping with a raised bed garden for our community here at FBC? See Gene Doby or Ted Misenheimer for more information.

Committee Leaders – As we begin a new calendar year, please try to keep Teresa informed of any upcoming meetings and events so that she can put it on the church calendar and have it reflected in the bulletins.  This will help keep the church family informed and help prevent scheduling conflicts with other committees.
