THOUGHTS FROM BRAD


Today we began a new series of lessons in Sunday School
entitled: Eats with Sinners. This Bible study is based
on the Luke 15:2 passage which says, This man
welcomes sinners and eats with them. If you do not
currently attend a class, why not join us in one of our study
groups. Bible School begins each Sunday at 8:45 A.M. and
classes meet in rooms 204, 208, 209, 214.
This Saturday, a group of us will travel to the Southeast Ohio Food Bank in Logan.
We will box up food items and prepare them for delivery so impoverished families will
have access to much needed food. If you want to participate, we still have a few seats
available. If you have not done so yet, please make sure you tell me today before you
leave if you plan to join us. We will leave the church by 8:15. If you plan to drive
yourself, try to arrive at the Food Bank by 8:45 for instructions.

In His Service,
Brad

March 19- Men & Boys Bean Dinner at the Heath


Church of Christ. This incredible night of fellowship
consists of much more than eating beans. Its about making
connections with other Christian men from the area. Its
about growing in your faith and being challenged as a
Christian man to a deeper walk with Jesus. I do hope you
will join us for a great night. This would be a great time to
invite someone to come with you. There will be special
musical groups and great preaching as always. We will
leave the church at 5:00 P.M. Why not go ahead and
sign up today in the coat room.

ATTENTION SENIORS!
Over the years, quite a few of our folk have participated in the grand event
known as Senior Saints in the Smokies. This gathering, of those over age
55, is held on the campus of Johnson University (formerly Johnson Bible
College) in Knoxville, Tennessee. It begins on Monday evening and
concludes on Friday morning. The week is filled with inspirational
programs, Christian fellowship, sightseeing and great food. The cost for
five days is just $240 per person. We usually travel in our vans and share
the cost of gas. We are urging our folk to attend May 25-29. A sign-up
sheet is now posted on our bulletin board. You will find registration forms
there. Watch for a promo video in one of our upcoming morning services.
If you have questions, contact Dave Tingler (654-4223 or 503-7061.)

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

Our Response to Who God Is


Deuteronomy 4
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.

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 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!
