THOUGHTS FROM BRAD


I want to encourage everyone to keep up with their Bible reading and study for 2015.
Even if you have read through the Bible before, Gods Spirit always reveals what you
need as a reward for your seeking to diligently dig deeper for truth. A.W. Tozer once
said, I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of

God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by
worship is not ready for heaven.
We had a great time of fellowship and study this past Wednesday night as we looked at
the life of J. Oswald Chambers. As we learned, his approach to life was: I will serve the
Lord anytime and anyplace. Oh that we would have that attitude. Just think how that
would change our church and this community.
February 4- I just wanted each person at the Fifth Avenue
Church of Christ to understand you are invited for this
annual congregational meeting. Whether you are a
member or not, please come. We will begin at 6:15 p.m.
and there will be pies and coffee for all to enjoy. We will
spend time reflecting on 2014 and talk as well about 2015.
February 10- Mens Colossal Burger Night. We will
begin at 6:00 p.m. During our evening of fun together, we
will spend some time talking through events for the year. I
hope you can join us! Feel free to bring a friend! I do ask
that you let me know by February 1st if you plan to
attend.
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

"Guilt, Grace and Glory"


Exodus 32-34
Brad Seevers preaching

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!
