Staying in Touch with FBC:

We would like to be able to stay in touch better with you! If you do not current get the emails from FBC throughout the week, specifically our family email sent every Friday, send an email to Brooke at email hidden; JavaScript is required and let her know so she can add you to the list serve!

 

Regathering:

As we are slowly regathering/reopening, we want to remind you that the church is opening up to groups under 25 people at a time in the building. Contact the office if you would like to reserve a room. The office is open from 9-12 and 1-4 PM. We also encourage you to watch the live stream on Sunday’s and maybe find a small group of friends to meet together with on Sunday morning.

 

Building Reopening and Building Use:

With the announcement this past week about FBC building reopening next week, we in the church office wanted to be sure to communicate clearly  with regard to building use. We are taking this time to start over our building use calendar. What this means for you is that nothing is assumed; If you previously had an ongoing meeting in the building, we ask that you re-confirm with Brooke Staples that your meeting is a go. It will be very important to coordinate between us and meeting leaders on all the new details associated with opening. Email is the best method to get hold of Brooke, email hidden; JavaScript is required. Thank you for your understanding in this time.

 

FBC History Document:
“The First Baptist Story, Vol. 1”
This book was written as a historical overview of the ministry and happenings of the first 120 years of our local church. It instructs and inspires us to see the Holy Spirit’s work of provision and redemption through ordinarily extraordinary people here in Corvallis, Oregon. Give it a read!

 

Love INC:

City Serve 2020 has been cancelled. BUT Love INC is looking for volunteers to help during this season. If you would like to help in this time just click this link and sign up to be a volunteer.

Love INC is looking for someone from FBC to help connect needs that come into the Love INC office that can not readily be met by the current gap ministries through Love INC. This volunteer would be called a Church Ministry Coordinator. A CMC knows the congregation, which people are available/gifted in different ways, and is a good communicator. Preferably this would be someone who is a current Love INC volunteer or has prior experience, but it is not required. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, sign up at the link above, Love INC will then contact you on next steps.

 

 

WEEKLY PRAYER & PRAISE GUIDE

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful” Colossians 4:2

Prayer for our supported Mission Agencies:

Our church not only supports individual missionaries (and their family) but also some mission agencies that serve our community. We’d like to highlight Interfaith Caregivers and We Care.

Interfaith Caregivers is a caring community of volunteers from any faith and age whose responsibility it is to work with, serve, and assist people in order that they may maintain their independence and dignity to the highest possible degree.

We Care is an organization that pools the resources of the community to meet one-time emergency needs of families and individuals such as rental assistance, utility assistance, therapy services, food, personal care items, and more.

Pray:

  • that the individuals served by these agencies would see Jesus and draw near to Him
  • That volunteers would spread the light of Jesus in each conversation they have with clients

 

Prayer for our Church Family:

Pray for:

  • Our Church to grow in love and unity during this season.
  • Peace in body, mind, and spirit in this time of uncertainty.

Seek God For Your City

TONIGHT, 6:00 PM, Click Here!

The prayer guide, written by Steve Hawthorne, has continued to keep us looking to God for mercy in all the arenas of our city and world.  I hope that you have been able to participate.  We are going to cap it off with a valley wide gathering and visit from Mr. Hawthorne this Sunday evening, TONIGHT, April 5th!  He has agreed to deliver the message to us over the internet. We will have a live stream address and prayer response, This Sunday, 6:00 PM Pacific Time.  Just click this link that will connect you to the YouTube platform to be able to watch the livestream. Plan to watch this in your homes with loved ones.  It will add a deeper appreciation for Christ’s coming to Jerusalem, visit and cleansing of the temple, and promise for our city as we welcome Him here in prayer.

 

Holy Week:

For Holy Week, the FBC staff will be preparing devotional videos to share the meaning of each weekday leading up to Good Friday.  They will be posted on our Facebook page and group.  So stay tuned to find those each day.  It will bring a deeper experience of Christ’s passion.  You can watch alone or with your family and discuss.  Regrettably, we will not be hosting a Good Friday service because of the transition and lockdown.  If you’d like some resources or ideas for yourself or family, please let Russ Richmond know or contact the church office: email hidden; JavaScript is required.  Take advantage of this week to connect with fellow believers in the way you can to worship, meditate, and pray together!  A simple way to do this is to give a phone call, ask how your friend is doing, but before hanging up ask “Can I pray for you?”  Then just give a simple prayer asking for God’s presence to be expressed in their lives.

 

Easter Sunday:

Next Sunday we are celebrating Christ’s Resurrection via our Facebook livestream and/or website. Join us at 10:30 AM for the Worship Gathering!
