THOUGHTS FROM BRAD


This past Wednesday we began our new elective entitled: To Live is Christ. It was a night of
introductory study so you can still join us this Wednesday as we begin digging in. I do hope
youll join us at 6:15 in the Fellowship Hall.
I want to thank all those who came to our Mens night on Tuesday. We had a great time and
made some plans for the upcoming months. Let me encourage all of our men to save the
following dates so you can participate in our scheduled spring events.
March 19-Central Ohio Men & Boys Bean Dinner at Heath Church of Christ. We will
leave the church at 5 p.m. Come join in a great time of fellowship and food for your
body and soul. It is awesome joining in worship with 800 men and boys.
April 24-25 Mens Retreat at RLCA. Men grab your fishing equipment or golf clubs and
lets head to the church camp. On Friday you can fish at the lake or participate in the
retreat golf scramble. The cost of the scramble is $45 for those who are interested. On
Friday night, we will enjoy a steak dinner and a great time of worship. Look for more
details in upcoming newsletters.
May 14-Trip to Cabelas and/or Field & Stream in Columbus. This guys night out on the
town will also include sitting down for some good barbecue food. More details to come!
June 4- A day of Fishing at Rushcreek Lake, followed by a Fish Fry. Its going to be a
great day hanging out with stinky guys and good smelling bait. Or is it good smelling
guys and stinky bait? Whichever it is, its going to be a lot of fun men.
During the month of March, our adult Sunday School classes are being asked to break away
from your regular studies and join us studying the theme: Eats With Sinners. This
evangelistic study will better prepare you for sharing your faith with friends and loved ones.
Please make the Sunday School hour a priority so you dont miss out on being equipped.
In His Service,
Brad

The Homestead Brides is a collection of stories that take place
on the vast frontier of our country. Promises of free land lured
thousands to stake their claim to the vast American plains.
They built make-do homes and put all they had into improving
the land. Nine adventures that depict the variety of ways God
helped homesteaders find someone with whom to share the
dream and the work. A part of our history as it was lived by
brave couples and families with faith in the promise of America.

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)

Testimonial

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.

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.

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 Gods Greatness;


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

OUR MISSION

To Love God and Love People!
