FC’ers, what a great summer we are enjoying!  It has been full of great gatherings, youth camp, family fun and travels! But do you know what is great? Family Church continues to make WORSHIP a priority, taking time to gather, worship, study, and encourage one another for good works! And HE is responding!  HE is doing great things in the hearts of those who seek Him! When you come toward God, He comes toward you and blesses in such a fulfilling way!  We are already anticipating a mighty move of God at our next worship gathering!

BACK TO SCHOOL FAIR

Each year, Family Church hosts a booth at the Wentzville School District at Holt High School. We join other businesses and organizations to give away free school supplies to people in our community who may need a little extra help!  On Saturday, August 6th, we will be there representing Family Church again!  We're giving away glue sticks and other much needed supplies and a treat! Stop by and say hello, or better yet, volunteer for an hour at the booth! A sign-up sheet is at the Welcome Center.


HEROES

The Bible is filled with great heroes of the faith! They obeyed God and rose to the challenge to serve God’s people when the times demanded it.  Today, our challenges may be different, but God is calling men and women of faith to rise up, answer His call, and do the work that He has for them.  Will you answer the call?  Join us THIS Sunday as Pastor Lesh encourages us today in this series, HEROES!  Bring someone with you!


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! Mark 16:16 says this: 

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

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!!


SHOPPING AT THE STOREHOUSE!

It’s HOT outside! Stop by The Storehouse and pick up a Family Church water bottle.  Need a water bottle for school?  You can stay hydrated and share your church with others! These bottles are dishwasher safe (top rack) and only $5. Get yours while supplies last!


GIVING

Did you know that many churches suffer financially during the summer?  With families traveling and not always at service, offerings can be low. 

Here's how you can help! If you’re not going to be at service, check out options 2 and 3 for giving! Invest in the amazing ministries happening weekly at Family Church!  There is no better investment that you can make than helping people find God and grow closer to Him!  Missed service?  Giving is easier than ever.

               2  Give recurring donations, online at www.familychurch.net, or through your bank account!

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!!!
