Finally, a Sunday with no snow in the forecast! This winter has been unusually brutal regarding our Sunday gatherings. Although many have been able to push through and brave the elements, many others have not been able to participate in our Sunday celebrations. We even had to cancel last week’s service altogether due to poor conditions. Of course, this has taken its toll on our ministry financially. However, your faithful and generous contributions will insure our continued success in the gospel ministry.
Spring is coming and we are gearing up for an unbelievable season of ministry. Don’t forget, we move our clocks up one hour this weekend. So, as we spring forward, let’s do so with great expectation. This Sunday, I will begin a new series entitled, “The Personal Power of Redemption.” This study on the book of Ruth is reveals an epic tale of redemption that celebrates how the Lord never fails regarding the redemption of His people. This is a series that will inspire you and strengthen your resolve to trust the Lord even in the midst of overwhelming adversity. After the service, the Jr. High and Sr. High student s are going to McDonalds and to the bowling alley. Contact Pastor Steve for more details.
This coming Wednesday March 12th, we will be hosting the Liberty University SOAR Dunk Team. Liberty University is my alma mater and is the world’s largest Christian University in the world with over 100,000 students. Their ministry team shares the message of Jesus through acrobatic maneuvers off of trampolines. They promise to dazzle crowds of all ages. This is an investment into our community. During the day, we have organized assemblies in our local schools and on Wednesday night we will gather at the Fairfield Middle School at 6:30 pm to enjoy a family fun event. All are welcome and it is free admission. Thank you for helping us present Jesus to our city by supporting this great opportunity.
Saturday, April 19th and Sunday April 20th, will be our Easter celebration weekend. On Saturday morning, the children will enjoy the largest egg hunt in Fairfield and Sunday morning the whole family can enjoy a country breakfast. Easter is always an “eggciting” time and presents a wonderful opportunity to invite your friends and family. Many are looking for a church to attend during the Easter season, help them discover Fairfield West Baptist Church.
Thursday May 1st, we are hosting Jake Olson in the biggest community event of the year. Jake has been completely blind since the age of 12, however sometimes you find life’s miracles in the most unlikely places. You don’t want to miss this inspirational story of overcoming through faith. Tickets can be purchased for $10 at each Sunday worship service or $12 purchasing them online at our churches website. Seats are limited, so purchase your tickets today.
Sunday May 4th, Dr. Dan Dewitt will be us to present his brand new book published by Crossway entitled, “Jesus or Nothing.” This winsome book describes the rock-solid foundation for life that Christians enjoy in and through the gospel—offering an explanation for our existence, grace for our guilt, and meaning for our mortality.
