THOUGHTS FROM BRAD


I am so happy that spring is now only 12 days away. Wahoo! Before you know it, you
will be able to sit outside on your patio/deck and swat flies while you are trying to enjoy
a sammy. With the warmer months, new birth will be all around. Yeah!
Speaking of new birth, I want to take this opportunity to welcome Connor Allen Hawkes
into the world. Connor weighed 6 pounds and is 19 inches long. Congratulations to
Bob & Penny Hawkes (Grandparents) and Ned & Jane Tomlinson (Great-Grandparents)
as well as Nathan (Dad). We will pray for his young life that he will grow into a great
man and that his life will bring glory to God.
I want to thank everyone who went to the Southeast Ohio Food bank yesterday to box
up food for the needy of our state. It was a great morning and we got a lot done. Its
amazing how much can accomplished in such a short amount of time for the Kingdom.
I want to take this opportunity to invite the congregation to Jessica (Seevers) Newman
and Ryland Newmans formal wedding ceremony. They were married in a beautiful
outdoor setting this past November 2nd but are having an indoor ceremony in Fairmont,
WV, on April 11th at 4:00 P.M. If you would like to attend, please let myself or Kim know
today as we are making final food preparations for their big day. There is an invitation on
the bulletin board in the coat room.
On a similar note, all the ladies of the congregation have been invited to attend Jessicas
baby shower on March 14th as noted on the front page. Please let me or Kim know today
if you plan to attend.
Guys, if you havent signed up already in the coat room for the Bean dinner, please do so
immediately. We are just a few weeks away for this great night of fellowship.
In His Service,
Brad
A big THANK YOU goes out to all the ladies who
cleaned around the church building and wrote
encouraging cards to others last Saturday. It was a fun
time of fellowship and eating together as well. Watch for
the next Ladies Ministry Activity!

EASTER PARTY!

Saturday, April 4th ~ 11am 1pm
We will play games, practice our skit, and eat

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

"You Can't Love God


If You Don't Love Your Neighbor"
Deuteronomy 22 & 23
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!
