We would like everyone to bring an appetizer. If

really like, bring it to share!

THOUGHTS FROM BRAD …

This past week I taught out of 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 on
Paul’s encouragement to “Take captive every thought and
make them obedient unto Christ.” That passage also
challenged each of us to become “spiritual thinkers” and so
we are making an effort to not to worry, to be critical or to
be worldly. I hope this past week we were peaceful,
positive and eternally minded instead. Let that be our
prayer daily as we seek to draw closer to Christ as His
disciple.

Let me give a brief “shout out” to all those who committed
to praying daily for the “unreached of the world.” Please be
faithful in your effort to expedite the Lord’s return as we
pray for new messengers to rise up and get the Gospel to
those who need Jesus.

If you would like to assist in this summer’s annual church
picnic on August 3
rd
, then please see the bulletin board in
the coat room to find out what kind of help is needed. Or
you can speak to Kathryn Albertson directly.

I want to share a few excerpts from the Outlook
newspaper devotional page. It reads: “In the early 1990’s,
German researchers studied the effects of aircraft noise
exposure on children. They tested a cross-section of
children living in the flight path of an old airport, as well as
children living in the flight path of a new airport. Here is
what they discovered. The children in the area of the old
airport scored lower in reading comprehension and in long-
term memory skills. For the children living in the new
airport flight path, they also exhibited decreases in reading
comprehension and long-term memory; Different children,
but same results. Here’s the kicker! The researchers re-
tested the first group of children after the original airport
had been closed, and they were absent from the airport
noise. They found the children tested better in reading
comprehension and memory skills.”

So what’s the point? Why am I sharing this study? To
illustrate that noise affects our ability to process
information. What noise has been distracting you lately? Is
it screaming children, a busy interstate, a leaky faucet, a
big screen television, an iPod playing your favorite songs,
etc…. Some noise is unavoidable, but we can control many
noises.

God encourages us to “Be still, and know that I am God.”
God still speaks in a “still, small voice.” Are you
encountering Him by listening closely? As much as noise
can have a negative impact, dwelling in God’s presence-
being still before Him-has amazing restorative properties.
Listen! Listen! Listen for His voice.

BITS FROM BRO. DAVE

SCHEDULE CHANGE: Just a quick
reminder about my announcement of last week!
My work schedule is now, basically, Wednesday
of each week. I remain available, at other times,
for emergencies.

KEENAGERS’ TRIP IN JULY: On
Wednesday, July 30, we are visiting the historic
Zoar Village which is located just north of
Strasburg, Ohio. The village was settled in 1817
by German Separatists who came to this country
seeking religious freedom. The village consists
of a number of original residences and public
buildings. We will be learning about the
Zoarites’ unique religion and history. Cart
transportation, for a limited number, is available
for those who might have difficulty walking.
The cost, per person, is $13. This includes
admission and travel. Lunch will be on your
own, at the Manor Restaurant in Strasburg.
Following lunch, we will make a stop at Yaggi’s
Cheese House which is located near New
Philadelphia. A sign-up sheet is posted and we
still have seats available. Get your name on and
your money in!

MI DWEEK BI BLE STUDI ES: Our two
study groups will resume on September 10.
Watch for details.

COMI NG KEENAGER EVENTS:
-August 27: A trip to Amish Country. We will
be visiting the new David Warther Carvings
display, near Sugarcreek (not to be confused
with the Warther Museum in Dover) and
stopping by our favorite cheese shops. (Watch
for details!)

-September 9: The New Horizons Retreat,
which is held annually at the North Terrace
Church of Christ in Zanesville. (More
information later.)

FI NAL THOUGHT: Dogs are a lot like
people. Usually, one in a group is barking at
something in particular; the rest are barking at
him.

Core Values...

Values central to the life, mission and
vision of Fifth Avenue Church of Christ are:

Christ-Centered Worship
We make it a priority every Sunday to celebrate Jesus through our
music. (Romans 11:36-12:1-2). We focus on Jesus through grace-
based preaching and teaching & understand the Bible is our
authority (2 Timothy 3:16).

Church Health and Biblical Balance
Church health becomes reality when God's people seek harmony &
live consistently. We expect every member to protect the unity
of Christ's Church. (Romans 12:16; 1 Peter 3:8)

Global Evangelism
We are constant to our founding call to worldwide evangelism,
proclaiming to all that Jesus Christ is the Savior, Healer, and Soon-
Coming King (Acts 20:27).

Fellowship and Ministry
After people begin their journey with Jesus, we will equip them to
find a ministry based upon their strengths. We want everyone to
serve in some capacity. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) We also want His
church to be the living evidence of His love and power to the world.

Discipleship
We do not want you to "get religion" here at Fifth Avenue Church of
Christ in Lancaster. We are all about teaching you that Jesus seeks
a daily relationship with Him through a life of obedience. In other
words, we want to see the things you are taught actually change
your lifestyle & your daily decisions.

Social Conscience
We place high value on the sanctity of human life, of Biblical
marriage and morality, and we welcome ethnic diversity (Isaiah
56:7; Philippians 2:15-16).



OUR PURPOSE

WE EXIST TO …

 Exalt God’s Greatness;
 Evangelize God’s Work
 Equip God’s People
 Express God’s Love through Jesus Christ

OUR MISSION
“To Love God and Love
People!”
How Can I Respond Today?
At FACC we look to the Bible for guidance on all
issues. We believe that God’s Word is clear
concerning what a person must do to become a
Christian.
 Trust that Jesus can bring you to salvation.
 Turn (repent) from the sin in your life.
 Confess your desire to make Jesus the Lord
of your life.
 Be baptized (immersed) in water for the
forgiveness of sins and to receive the Holy
Spirit into your life.
To make this life decision for Christ, we ask that you
come forward during our commitment song at the
conclusion of the Sunday message. Baptized believers
are welcome to become members at FACC by coming
forward on Sunday morning or by seeing our Senior
Minister to discuss this further. We ask that you
complete a series of Curious classes to help you
better understand what you are committing to as a
member. If you would like to take a Curious class,
please indicate this on your Silent Roll Call Card.
