Sunday Movie Matinee-Public 2018

For Our Visitors

All are welcome to our Sunday Worship.  If you will be visiting, we’ll be so glad to have you with us!  Please fill out a Visitor’s Card which can be found in the pew racks and place it in the collection plate, or hand it to an usher, so that we can get to know you.

New Members Class

Joining Church membership is God’s way to connect us to the Body of Christ where we can grow spiritually and at the same time utilize our gifts.  In Acts 2:27 we read, “And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”  There will be a New Members Class forming in January.  If you’re not a member and are interested in joining the FPC in Blackwood membership, please talk to Pastor Yousef, any of the elders, or simply sign up on the sheets on the narthex and the board room tables.   If you have any suggestions or would like to talk to the Men’s Ministry Committee, please see Gerry Hazzard, Russ Long, John Forrest or Brian Salmon.

Vacation Bible School

We will be hosting VBS in July.  More information will be posted as the program develops.

Men’s Breakfast

The second Men’s Breakfast was held December 2nd.  We enjoyed a tasty breakfast and fellowship followed by Rich Hojnowski sharing a bit of his journey of faith.  We finished up with reading and discussion of Psalm 92:12-15.  It was, once again, a rewarding time of supporting each other as men in God’s church.  It’s time well-spent, the food is pretty good and the discussion enlightening!

There is a sign-up sheet available in both the narthex and board room.  Please sign up if you are planning to attend the next one.   If you have any questions/suggestions/ideas, please see the Men’s Ministry Committee:  Russ Long, Gerry Hazzard, John Forrest and Brian Salmon.

Bible Study

Pastor Yousef is offering a weekly Bible Study every Tuesday from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Every follower of Jesus should attend a small group Bible study where God uses these opportunities to deepen our understanding of His Word and take our faith to the next level.  This year, Rev. Yousef will be leading a study on Paul’s Letter to the Philippians, “Be Joyful:  Even When Things Go Wrong You Can Have Joy.”  Sign-up sheets are available on the board room and narthex tables.  Please sign up if you’re planning to attend.  Invite a friend!

A BIG Thank You

To the Evangelism and Outreach Committee for putting together a great service last Sunday celebrating the gift of so many wonderful people in our community.  Our second Love Your Community Sunday went really well.  Thank you all for your generous contributions to the wonderful reception we had, for the hands that set up the place, and cleaned afterwards.  May God continue to bless our community through the faithful ministry of our congregation.

WoWs

We are asking for mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, and socks for children in need to help them keep warm this winter.  If you feel led to help out, please deposit your items in the basket in the narthex.

ShopRite cards are available for purchase in the narthex every Sunday after worship.  Proceeds benefit our Kitchen Fund.

If you order from Cheez Pleez, don’t forget to mention our church so we can receive a percentage of your purchase price!

Deacons

The Board would also like to thank the congregation for its awesome generosity every month with the Deacons Fund of Compassion offering.  Your giving enables the Deacons to continue supporting The Unforgotten Haven, IHOC Mentor Night, holiday baskets for needy families, and much, much more.

The 2017 flower chart has been posted on the bulletin board outside the narthex.   The price for next year remains the same.  Please sign up for a date today!  If you have any questions, ask a Deacon.  Thank you to Philis Notley and Sunrise Florist for providing our beautiful flowers each week!
