THOUGHTS FROM BRAD


I pray you are on track with your Bible reading for the year. Next week I will preach from a text out of
the chapters Genesis 30-50. This week as I write this article, I am lifting up the name of Christ in praise.
Its crazy loud in my office! We have many reasons to praise Jesus Christ. How fitting it is that a song
entitled: Audience of One is on the radio. Its written by a group called Big Daddy Weave and its lyrics
are
I come on my knees to lay down before You
Bringing all that I am, longing only to know You
Seeking Your face, and not only Your hand
I find You embracing me just as I am
And I lift these songs to You and You alone
As I sing to You in my praises make Your home
To my audience of one, You are Father, and You are Son
As Your Spirit flows free, let it find within me
A heart that beats to praise You

And now just to know You more has become my great reward
To see Your kingdom come and Your will be done
I only desire to be Yours, Lord
So what could I bring to honor Your majesty?
What song could I sing that would move the heart of royalty?
And all that I have is this life that You've given me

So Lord, let me live for You, my song with humility


And Lord, as the love song of my life is played
I have one desire to bring glory to Your name.

That is my personal prayer for this church and for me; that you and I live each day in worship to our
God, and to bring glory to His name. Will you join me in this prayer?
In His Service,
Brad

Tonight at 6:00 p.m.

WELCOME TO FIFTH AVENUE!


At FACC, we focus on loving God, loving people,
and turning the world upside down.
We are happy you chose to worship with us today. We hope you
return next week and bring your friends with you. If you would
please take a few minutes to fill out a Silent Roll Call Card,
located on the back of the pew, you can then place it in the
offering plate as it is passed. Thank you. For more information
about our great church, contact our minister, Brad Seevers at
Brad@new-churches.org or call him at 740.550.9882. Have a
great week and may God bless your life.

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

How Can I Respond Today?


At FACC we look to the Bible for guidance on all issues. We believe that
Gods 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.

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 Gods Greatness;


Evangelize Gods Work
Equip Gods People
Express Gods Love through Jesus Christ

OUR MISSION

To Love God and Love People!
