THOUGHTS FROM BRAD


This past Saturday, the Elders & I met for a time of prayer and planning for 2015. We covet your prayers as we
seek to lead this church toward a deeper walk with Christ. May each draw closer to the Lord as His disciple in
2015.
In my absence last Sunday night, Joe Hoagland preached for me. I appreciate his willingness to speak and I pray
all were blessed by what he had to say. Please continue to pray for Joe as he seeks a full-time ministry to preach
the Word. He has graduated and serves a church each weekend currently in Jeffersonville, Ohio part-time.

On January 28th, you are cordially invited to join us for Dinner & a Movie. All the
fun begins at 5:15! Please check out the pertinent details on the front page of the
newsletter concerning the movie. As for the meal, we will have a Mexican dinner
which you can make yourself tacos, taco salad, burritos, chips and salsa, etc Be sure
to sign at either entrance to the sanctuary. We hope you join us for a great night of
food, fun and fellowship and stay afterwards for a brief film and Bible study.
Our annual congregational meeting is slated for February 4, 2015. We hope you begin planning now to join us
that night as we take a look at 2014 and ponder 2015 together.
February 10- Mens Colossal Burger Night. Join us for a night of fun, food and a thought or two about life.
Feel free to bring a friend. The more the merrier. All the fun begins at 6 P.M. at the HUB (Fellowship Hall) in the
church.
Final thought for this week Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things

that you didnt do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe
harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. Mark Twain

May we each learn to EXPLORE the Will of God and go with Him where we have never gone before. May we
DREAM so BIG that without God in the planning it will surely fail, and may we DISCOVER the goodness of Him as
we embark upon unchartered waters of our soul.
In His Service,
Brad

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!
