Pastor Bob Lewis
If you are looking for a friendly, Bible-believing church in the Kingsport area, we would be excited to see you visiting in our services. Please take a moment and sign our guestbook to let us know you visited us here on the web. If you have questions or suggestions for the webmaster, you may send a private note through the guestbook. Thank you so much for visiting our site. Come back frequently!
Both of the recent Sunday evening sermons on Biblical Principles of Money have now been added to the Selected Sermons 2014 section of our website. These are very practical sermons which contain good advice on handling personal finances. Feel free to share these with family and friends.
The ladies will be having their annual garage sale on Friday and Saturday, August 1 and 2. All proceeds will be given to missions. All item donations will be appreciated. Please bring the items to the activities building prior to the sale. It would be very helpful if you could price the items you are donating. Thank you.
In August, we will begin a trial run of new service times on Sunday morning. Beginning Sunday, August 3, our Sunday school will begin at 9:30 a.m. and morning worship will begin at 10:30 a.m. The evening service times are not changing; Sunday evening service will still begin at 6:00 p.m. and Wednesday evening service at 6:30 p.m.
At the end of August, our membership will be voting on whether or not to make this time change permanent.
On Friday, July 25, our Band of Brothers will be having a men's cookout at Fort Patrick Henry Lake. Prior to the meal, they are inviting those who enjoy fishing to participate in their big fishing tournament!
This will be a very simple tournament, with the 1st prize going to the man who catches the biggest (longest) fish. That fish can be a bass, a catfish, a carp, or anything in between. Participants can either turn in the actual catch or show a picture of the fish on a ruler, clearly showing its length. First prize will be a $50 gift card from Bass Pro Shop!
You can fish all day Friday, come Friday afternoon, or whatever you would enjoy. Even if you don't fish, you can still come and enjoy the cookout. The church is providing hamburgers but our men will be bringing everything else. Meal time will be 6:30 p.m. The group will be at Warriors Path State Park near the back of the parking lot on the left side of Duck Island. Bring your own chair, as they will not be at one of the picnic shelters.
Feel free to invite other men who are not a part of our church for this big afternoon and evening of fun, food, and fellowship!
The details have been set for the Senior Saints bus trip lunch on Tuesday, July 15. They will be leaving the church at 11:30 a.m. and going to Bristol. The plans are to eat at Logans (at Exit 7 in Bristol, VA); however, the group may decide on the way to eat at a diferent restaurant. This will be a great time of fun and fellowship!
In honor of the memory of church planter Tim Osborn, the Tennessee Home Mission Board has established the "Osborn Memorial Fund." Tim labored faithfully and successfully as a joint project worker for Tennessee and the National Home Mission Board in establishing a church in Oakland, Tennessee.
Tim leaves behind his wife, Robyn, and seven children, five of whom are still home. Both the National Home Mission Board and the Tennessee State Board are helping in a significant way with the family's short term needs. Proceeds from the memorial fund will be used to reduce the mortgage on Robyn's home to help her long term.
The Tennessee Board has issued a challenge for every church in our state to take an offering or send a gift of at least $1,000.00. If that is not possible, any gift will be appreciated. All gifts should be sent to the Tennessee State Association and designated to the "Osborn Memorial Fund." All gifts can be sent to the address below:
TN St. Assoc. of Free Will Baptists
P. O. Box 58954
Nashville, TN 37205
(The TN State Association encourages all who are concerned for the Osborn family to post the above news release on social media, through e-mail, church websites, etc., to help inform others of the goal. Please post the entire news release exactly as it is given. Your help and concern is appreciated.)
We at Fellowship FWB are participating in this and encourage all others to step up to this challenge.
The Senior Saints lunch has been moved from the usual first Tuesday of the month to Tuesday, July 15. They are going to be taking the church bus and trying something different. Planning is still in the works for this little trip; details will be announced at church soon.
We have now added the pictures from Vacation Bible School 2014! Look for the page on the menu at the left. VBS was a great success, with lots of fun had by all. We are praising God for two young people who accepted Jesus Christ as Savior!
Last Sunday, February 16, Pastor Bob presented a very special sermon on the subject of "Gay Rights and God's Word." This sermon is now available here on our website under "Selected Sermons 2014." Please listen and share. In my (the web administrator's) personal opinion, every Christian should hear this sermon.
If you cannot listen to our sermons on your smartphone or tablet, you should be able to hear this sermon on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EI490UDSFUY&feature=youtu.be
On Sunday, June 23, we are beginning classes for children's church during the 11:00 a.m. worship service. The kids will be divided into two classes, based on age group. Of couse, we will also still be having our regular Sunday school at 10:00. Sunday morning will be an exciting time which will engage your children and help them learn about God's word.
There are many "elements" in the Bible which children need to understand - things such as obedience, kindness, trust, and salvation. "Elements" presents these through exciting teaching, games, singing, skits, and competition. It is a wonderful time, and we are excited about your children joining us this Sunday!
Lori Joyner will now be teaching the Kids' Club class on Wednesday night. The children will be meeting in the basement of the church. Please bring your children and grandchildren to the classes on Wednesday nights!
Don't forget to save those labels for Free Will Baptist Family Ministries. Several labels can be redeemed by FWBFM, so please bring them to the church and place in the basket. Thank you Marsha Mullins for collecting these labels and sending them in for us.
The ladies are collecting labels for Free Will Baptist Family Ministries. UPC labels from many Campbell Brands products are worth points to help provide free items for education. A list of eligible products was inserted in recent church bulletins. You may place the labels in a basket in the foyer. If you have questions or need a copy of the product list, please see Marsha Mullins.
