FBC’s Walk 4 The World & Lifeword Sunday

WEDNESDAY, October 19, we will have our annual Lifeword Walk 4 The World at Shaw Park (Ball Road W Downum Rd., Springdale, AR 72762) from 6-8PM.  This represents a departure from previous years and enables us to come together as a church to include our youth and students from Wednesday evening.

Each year, churches of the BMA observe “Lifeword Sunday” – a special emphasis of prayer and giving for the ministry of Lifeword Media Ministries, one of our most effective missions efforts as an association – Lifeword reaches as many as to 2 billion people a day through radio, TV, the internet. Help them expand broadcasts to reach the remaining 5 billion with the Good News. #LifewordSunday #WeTellTheStory https://lifeword.org

Walk 4 The World has long been a major fundraising event with local churches, and local associations coming together and walking – for donations. Some get pledges per mile walked, while others simply commit to a flat amount.   Regardless, if you would like to help with the fundraising, be sure to collect pledged funds in time to turn them in on Sunday, October 23!

We have lots of fun and fellowship – while bringing attention to this incredible ministry.  While we all cannot be physical missionaries around the world, and to language groups, we may have never even heard of – Lifeword does through broadcast and digital media – and you can be a part of that!

 

Here is a video reminder of what Lifeword is all about…

Back to Sunday School (B2SS)

Think about this B2SS2022

As we begin the new church and literature quarter, we have partnered with our associaitonal publishing department Baptist Publishing House to encourage both members and visitors to “come back to Sunday School”, or at least in our case – what we call Bible Fellowship Classes. Between those who let the pre-worship service Christian education portion of their spiritual growth efforts slide as COVID tured the world upside-down, to those who have simply grown cold to the idea of classes and studying the Word, Sunday School attendance for many churches is at historic lows. Our desire is to remind all of the importance of coming together to study God’s Word as an integral and extremely important part of our overall Christian Education efforts as a church. and remember – we have classes available for literally every age and maturity level. All that is missing… is you!

Make an effort and pray about your participation! May we grow together in faith!

#FBCBIBLECON2022 – Bible Intensive Retreat! March 4-5

We are pleased to finally be able to announce a restart to our Spring Bible Conferences with a special opportunity to grow in our study and understanding of God's Word.  In conjunction with Christian

Steve Burchett

Steve Burchett, CCW Worldwide

Communicators Worldwide, we will be hosting a Bible Intensive with Steve Burchett
and his wife Patty for Friday evening and Saturday as we engage in what, for many, will be a somewhat different method for studying and engaging with God's Word!  All materials will be provided, leave your study Bible at home, and come learn to draw the meaning of the Bible directly from the pages in their context!

Come discover that you CAN study and UNDERSTAND the Bible.  Gain skills to help you be far more confident in your studies, and maybe even uncover that hidden scholar just waiting to be unearthed! At the end of our time on Saturday, you will know more about a chapter of God's Word than many pastors! But more importantly, you will be blessed as only the intentional study of the Bible can bring.

The schedule for the March 4 & 5:

Friday: 6-9PM (Supper included).   Saturday: 9AM-1:30PM (Breakfast available at 8:30AM and Lunch Included). There is no cost to attend, although you may contribute to offset the costs by clicking HERE and designate it for Conference costs, or contribute at the event.

MEN’S BREAKFAST!

It is past time for us to get serious about men getting together – we will be having a men’s breakfast every-other month beginning Saturday, February 5th at 8AM. For those who would like to help cook, Pastor Michael plans to be in the kitchen around 7AM.  Hope you can be here to sharpen one-another!

It’s Chili Cook-Off Time!

It’s time!  Time for some CHILI!

First Baptist Church is excited to again host our annual Chili Cook-Off!  This fun, family-friendly event will see a wide range of chilis, from traditional no-beans and with beans, white, red, brown, and we have even had green before!  Heat ranges will be from none to extreme (will be clearly labeled).

And YOU are the judge!  Everyone who samples chili gets to vote for their favorite!

This event is open to the public – but if you plan to enter your chili, please have it here by 5:45PM to give time to get registered and set up for tasting!

This is a FREE event – but we will also have a dessert auction after the chili tasting is done!  So if you want to bring your favorite baked item or dessert for the auction, then bring that too! But most importantly – come have fun and enjoy the fellowship while trying a variety of chilis.
