We will also give you tools to lead your family. Contact us to schedule your Family Dedication.

CHOSEN!!! We’re excited about our “MOVE” youth retreat at Redemption Ranch on Friday, September 8—Saturday, September 9th! REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE SOON, so scurry on over to familychurch.net and get registered.


SmallGroups_ANN.jpg

SMALL GROUPS
Small groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Small Groups exist – to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

SMALL GROUP/DREAM TEAM FAIR
On Sunday, September 24th, Family Church will be hosting an exciting Small Group/Dream Team fair! This will give you an opportunity to meet Dream Team and Small Group leaders and sign up to make a difference and grow stronger and in community with others!

LEAD A SMALL GROUP
Sign up to LEAD A SMALL GROUP. It’s easier than you think!

1) Choose something you like to do/or are already doing. (Eating, hiking, Bible study, recreation, Mom’s group, etc.) Visit familychurch.net/smallgroups for even more ideas!)

2) Choose a day/time/place for your gathering. (weekly/bi-weekly is preferred for maximum growth)

3) Register your group at familychurch.net/smallgroups .

4) Invite people to join you! (People you are already influencing – friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc.)

In Small Groups, we grow stronger, together!


Mark16,16_Baptism_ANN2.jpg

HAVE YOU DECIDED?
Making the decision to turn from the world and follow Jesus is the single most important decision you will ever make! It literally changes your eternity! Acts 2:38-39 (MSG) says this: 
Peter said, “Change your life. Turn to God and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, so your sins are forgiven. Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is targeted to you and your children, but also to all who are far away—whomever, in fact, our Master God invites.”

When we make the decision to follow Jesus, we die to our old life and let God raise us up into a NEW life with Him! He promises to fill us with His Spirit (Acts 2) and we are empowered to do the things that He desires as we grow in relationship with Him! Let today be the day that you decide to take the plunge to wear His name through water baptism! It doesn’t get any more exciting than this!!

3) Choose a time slot to be a booth host! The sign-up sheet is at the Welcome Center.

Jesus_and_We_Series_Instragram.jpg

"JESUS AND WE" SERMON SERIES
Seven billion people occupy this tiny slice of history. And it's not by accident. God chose our generation to make a difference–but He doesn’t want us to do it alone. Find out how in our new sermon series "Jesus and We." 


HAVE YOU DECIDED?
Making the decision to turn from the world and follow Jesus is the single most important decision you will ever make! It literally changes your eternity! Acts 2:38-39 (MSG) says this: 
Peter said, “Change your life. Turn to God and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, so your sins are forgiven. Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is targeted to you and your children, but also to all who are far away—whomever, in fact, our Master God invites.”

When we make the decision to follow Jesus, we die to our old life and let God raise us up into a NEW life with Him! He promises to fill us with His Spirit (Acts 2) and we are empowered to do the things that He desires as we grow in relationship with Him! Let today be the day that you decide to take the plunge to wear His name through water baptism! It doesn’t get any more exciting than this!!


BABY SHOWER FOR BRADSHAW FAMILY
In just weeks, the Bradshaw family will be welcoming a precious baby girl to their family! Join us on Sunday, March 26th as we help them celebrate with a baby shower luncheon, after service! All are welcome. A light lunch will be served so please RSVP. *Jessica is registered at Babies R Us.

It is based on Hebrews 11:1 which says “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” We have faith in what we hope for, trust, and encounter in our Savior. Although unseen, we believe. Our eyes are open to what we do not see.

We will have more exciting details later, but this is what we know so far:
- Registration will be open soon! From Andrew Layden: We will do a giveaway for those who register early. No payment is required to register, but please remind your students that a mandatory, non-refundable $50 deposit is due in April."
- A new and improved menu is being designed with the help of Andrew Layden's wife.

SPRING FAIR 2017
Hi all! So we are super excited about the Spring Fair this year! As you know, last year we had some really cute game booths and sno cones and hot dogs. In addition, we had a dramatic tour, "Journey To The Resurrection" that was really neat! It began with each family receiving a passport to have stamped at each destination on the journey. First, they see Jesus triumphal entry on a donkey near a bazaar. They then visited Barabbas in prison. Next, they visited Golgotha where a Roman soldier told of what happened to Jesus. Then they visit the tomb to try to find Jesus...but he is not there! Lastly, they visited a Hot Air Balloon where they learned about how we will rise to meet Jesus when He returns, if we are full of His Spirit! We are excited to present THE GOSPEL - GOOD NEWS again this year to families in our community!

We are also super excited to have an opportunity to bless a very special ministry in St. Peters called The Sparrow's Nest. Katherine Soberg is a friend of Mrs Missouri, Heather Kemper-Hussey. She is also the Director for The Sparrow's Nest. http://www.thesparrowsneststl.org/ You can check out their website.Basically, they are a home in St. Peter's that houses 8-9 teen mothers or mothers-to-be. They are young girls (18 or younger) who are pregnant with no place to go. They are also high risk of aborting the baby. So The Sparrow's Nest invites them in, shows them the love of Christ, helps them graduate high school, take parenting classes, find a church, volunteer, and more. They are welcome to stay in the home for up to a year after they give birth. TSN is always in search of church partners, volunteers for monthly serve day at the house, and program volunteers (to help teach girls classes like cooking, cleaning, health, diet, finance, etc.).

Our Spring Fair has always been free and will be again this year. However, we thought it would be fitting to give people an opportunity to bring an item to donate to TSN. This year, we're asking for a package of diapers. This will be a huge blessing to these young mothers and their babies. We are also very excited for future partnerships with TSN! Katherine is going to help us coordinate this and some future City Care volunteer opportunities!

Having a hard time controlling things? How about giving God the reins and letting His peace be change your life...He's got this. You can trust Him. It's time to become who GOD says you are. Join us THIS Sunday for another great sermon in our Altar Ego series!


HAVE YOU DECIDED?
Making the decision to turn from the world and follow Jesus is the single most important decision you will ever make! It literally changes your eternity! Acts 2:38 says this: 
Acts 2:38-39The Message (MSG)
38-39 Peter said, “Change your life. Turn to God and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, so your sins are forgiven. Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is targeted to you and your children, but also to all who are far away—whomever, in fact, our Master God invites.”
When we make the decision to follow Jesus, we die to our old life and let God raise us up into a NEW life with Him! He promises to fill us with His Spirit (Acts 2) and we are empowered to do the things that He desires as we grow in relationship with Him! Let today be the day that you decide to take the plunge to wear His name through water baptism! It doesn’t get any more exciting than this!!


21 DAYS OF PRAYER & FASTING, THE GOAL OF FASTING IS TO DRAW NEARER TO GOD.

Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out! It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all of the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your own body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. To learn more about types of fasting and how to focus more on the Lord, click here. 

Scripture References:
Matthew 6:16-18, Matthew 9:14-15, Luke 18:9-14, Acts 27:33-37, Nehemiah 9:1-3

PRAISE REPORT!

Thank you for praying for the Missionary Shalms and their conference in Malaysia!  Check out the praise report we received from them!

“Dear Prayer Partner:

Last week we asked you to pray specifically for the Healing and Restoration Crusade thatwould be held on the weekend of July 22nd to July 24th in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We are writing to give you a report of victory.

Brother Eli Hernandez preached with a powerful anointing. When he gave the altar call each night, the altar was quickly filled with hungry people wanting the gift of the Holy Ghost or a miraculous healing.

There were 64 people who received the Holy Ghost. Five were baptized in Jesus’ Name during the crusade, and there are several more who will be baptized this coming Sunday in three different local churches. A wheel-chair bound man from East Malaysia who saw the advertisement for the crusade in the newspaper purchased tickets for himself and his wife to fly to Kuala Lumpur for the first night ~ what rejoicing there was as he walked back and forth across the front of the auditorium for the first time in many years after Jesus touched him.

Thank you for joining with us in prayer and faith. Revival is breaking forth in the nation of Malaysia and we are believing God for a mighty move of His Spirit.

Brother and Sister Allan Shalm”

To God be the glory!!!

FAMILY CHURCH HAPPENINGS, SATURDAY, MAY 7TH

FC’ers, Spring is well underway and there are so many areas you can get involved! Check out those opportunities below.

As we step into Spring, many of us get busy outdoors..pulling weeds, freshening flower gardens, and planting flowers. The warm Sun and water nourishes our plants and helps them grow!  In the same way, God wants us to grow and do good works in His service.  2 Timothy deals with this…especially these verses:

“Run away from infantile indulgence. Run after mature righteousness—faith, love, peace—joining those who are in honest and serious prayer before God. Refuse to get involved in inane discussions; they always end up in fights. God’s servant must not be argumentative, but a gentle listener and a teacher who keeps cool, working firmly but patiently with those who refuse to obey. You never know how or when God might sober them up with a change of heart and a turning to the truth, enabling them to escape the Devil’s trap, where they are caught and held captive, forced to run his errands.”

May God grant us energy and prudence as we live each moment for Him. Blessings!

Join Pastor Lesh and find out how your gifts can help fulfill God's calling for Family Church in our families, in our community, and in our world! 

WHY?
By getting involved in the Growth Track, you are growing as a Christian. It’s through service that you become part of the mission of the local church. You are part of the church when you are saved and become part of God’s family. But you grow in relationship with the local church by joining your gifts, your talents, and your callings with other believers. In 301 of Growth Track, you will discover your giftings, and how your passion can push forward the cause of Christ. You’re important to God and to Family Church. We need your help to fulfill the vision of Family Church. With your help, we can fulfill God’s calling for us in our community..until everyone has heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sign up for Growth Track 301 here! http://www.familychurch.net/growth-track We’ll have the donuts and hot coffee ready for you!
