Ministry & Events: 

Welcome Katie and TakuJune 23 at FBC!
Today June 23rd FBC will enjoy a visit from KATIE and TAKU who serve as Regional Consultants for Economic and Community Development in Southern Asia. They work with

non-profit organizations in the US and Asia to provide consultation and training, develop local and international financial resources to provide jobs, promote social enterprise, and improve the life quality of grassroots communities of the region. They will share a brief message during worship updating us on their work in Southern Asia. After worship, those who would like to engage in conversation with Katie and Taku are invited to stay in the sanctuary for a more in-depth presentation and conversation on how FBC can support their work. Hope you can join us for worship and the conversation afterwards.

Feeding the Soul Ministry Meal Train
Having major surgery? Home from a stay at the hospital? Have a new baby?
The Feeding the Soul Ministry would like to offer meals for our church family when they need support. We will be organizing meals, as needed, through an online tool called, the Meal Train. Donated meals can be homemade, store bought, or in the form of Gift Cards.
If you would like to be part of this ministry, you would receive an email from the Meal Train website when meals are needed. You would be able to sign up to take your meal on a day that fits your schedule. The Meal Train website would include the recipient’s name, address, phone number, food preferences, allergies and number of people the meal would need to serve. You would arrange with the recipient to deliver the meal sometime on the day you have chosen.
As soon as we have several people willing to help, we will send more information. Please let Gretchen Clemmons know of your interest at rgesclemmons@frontier.com or call 309-445-0689, There will also be a sign-up sheet on the table in the Narthex the next few weeks.
“Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” Romans 12: 13

One Great Hour of Sharing Collecting throughout June
“You are here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.”
                                                                                                  Matthew 5:14-15
“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine… “. If Jesus had a playlist of music, surely this familiar hymn would be among the Top Five. Jesus teaches that faith calls for action. Sharing our light, as the diverse and colorful expression of God’s love here on earth, leads to making blankets, staffing food pantries, cooking meals, building houses and schools, signing petitions for worthy causes, and protesting injustices. A simple song with a simple message—our light is on a light stand, for all to see—shine and share. On any given day, light is shining because we are there through our gifts to OGHS. Your contributions make a difference. Your dollars count. Give generously. Share the light!

 

 

Read Through the Bible
On the last Sunday of each month, we will have a 6 pm (Zoom) check-in to discuss the readings, your observations and questions. Don’t forget to send in your questions to brian@fbcblm.org
