We Want to Hear From You!
 The Spiritual Leadership Team wants to hear your thoughts about our congregation’s priorities and programs.
Why?
 After several years of focusing on big projects (i.e. decisions concerning the building, staff changes, and by-laws revision), it is time to look at the sustained weekly and daily ministry and programs of our church In a world that is constantly getting busier, we have begun to ask how we will engage in spiritual formation to prepare for a life of faith. As good Baptists, we recognize that this is not a decision of only staff members or SLT leaders, but the entire congregation. We want to hear from you as we discern our priorities together.
How?
Over the last several months, the SLT has met, discussed, and partnered with the Fredrikson Center for Faith and Church Vitality at Ottawa University in order to create a process for hearing your thoughts and opinions.  After meeting with the SLT and engaging our needs, the Fredrickson Center has designed questionnaires, and will confidentially administer, collect, and prepare the feedback for dissemination.
Where...
do I get one of these questionnaires? The Fredrikson Center (who has done this process with several oth-er churches in other places) suggests that the best way to assure confidentiality and to avoid duplication is for every congregation participant to
request a questionnaire by a) emailing the church office to request a digital copy or b) calling or giving your name to Jenny in the office to receive a paper copy and instructions
 via the Fredrikson Center. You may do either, starting this week.
Who?
 YOU! We want to hear from you as we continue to together seek God’s vision for our congregation and our community.

One Great Hour of Sharing Offering Begins
For seven decades now, nine denominations in the U.S., have to-gether been connecting people through One Great Hour of Shar-ing. Sisters and brothers living in poverty who would have been otherwise overlooked, or outright forgotten, have been empowered by our gifts to the offering. Families across North America, are accompanied for the long haul, thanks to funds from One Great Hour of Sharing. Each time a gift is given, a connection is made. Every single offering builds another bridge and tears down another wall. Each donation, no matter how large or small, reveals our unity, that in Christ Jesus we are one family. One Great Hour of Sharing enables us to fulfill those needs, for they are our needs.
For the next few  weeks we ask you to give generously to this great connector of our shared faith, work, and witness in the world
. ~FBC Mission Ministry  A Service of hymns and communion  will be July 6 at 10:30 a.m.
We are the hungry, the thirsty, the sick, the home-less, the hurting. We are one with our sisters and brothers, and we will an-swer Christ’s call until we all are fed. Until all are fed.
