Save the Date—Church Picnic

SUNDAY JUNE 2 AFTER MORNING SERVICE
We plan to have an all church picnic on Sunday, June 2nd after the morning service. If the weather cooperates, we will have the picnic out in Joe’s Place behind the building. If not, we will have the picnic in the gym. Start thinking about your favorite side dish or dessert recipes and plan to kick off summer with your church family.

Register , Invite, and Promote VBS

JUNE 17-20
Registration is open for VBS. Having pre-registration definitely helps the first night run smoothly. Please register children at: fbcnc.churchtrac.com. Also, there are invitation flyers with a small gift attached that are available to pick up if you have anyone in your life you’d like to invite. We are asking church children to wait on the small gifts for now, but they can be involved by coloring a sea or beach themed picture to hang on the back bulletin board.

Vacation Bible School at FBCNC

OUTREACH FOCUS FOR MAY
This month, our special outreach focus is preparing for VBS, which will be June 17th – 20th. There are a variety of ways to be involved: volunteering, praying, inviting, and donating. There are items posted on the back bulletin board that you can donate for VBS. Simply take a seashell with a needed item and bring it back to church by June 9th.

ABOUT THE GOOD NEWS
If you want to know more about Jesus and what his life, death, and resurrection have to do with you, please feel free to stay after the service and speak with Pastor Curt; he‘d love to talk with you. Or you can use the connection card located in the back of the pew to let him know you’d like to talk. Let us know the best way to contact you, and he’ll arrange a time to meet. You can also request more information about Jesus or our church by filling out a connection card online at fbcnc.churchtrac.com.

Questions?

ABOUT BAPTISM OR MEMBERSHIP
If you believe that Jesus is your Savior and Lord but you’ve never publicly confessed your faith and joined a church through baptism, please consider taking this initial step that Jesus wants for all his followers. You can speak with Pastor Curt after the morning service. Please also let us know if you’ve already been baptized and are interested in becoming a member of our church.
