Please welcome our new youth Pastor, Trevor Dishmond and his fiance Maddie.
If you haven’t made it to the monthly breakfast, you are really missing a great event.
The ladies have been meeting for a while and the men are now joining them for a shared breakfast the second Saturday of each month. We enjoy breakfast together and then split into a ladies group and a men’s group for Fellowship and some good scriptural discussion/lessons. Get to know folks better, share testimonies, pray for and support one another.
Although this is a pitch in breakfast feel free to come empty handed. There is always more than enough food.
Meets the second Saturday of each month at 9:00am.
Don’t Forget Wednesdays
Been to Wednesday Services lately? Is TV really that good on a Wednesday evening? Come join us from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Bring your kids for the youth group. You just might discover that it sure beats those old TV reruns.
Fellowship Business Meetings
If you are a member of Fellowship Church you should be attending the monthly business meetings.
These are usually the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm and only run about 5 or 10 minutes with Bible Study after. Check your bulletin or the big screen for dates.
Ever wonder how a Deacon is elected, the Church Constitution approved, who we will hire to mow our grass, and just about any other Church matter? Business Meetings! Come and let your voice be heard.
Fellowship Needs You!
We hope you love your church the way we love having you here. Did you know that we have a place for you to serve God right here at our church? Almost every ministry that we have is in need of help in some way or another. From greeting folks on Sunday morning and handing them a church bulletin to teaching a Sunday School class to the children, we need your help.
You are probably no different than anyone else here. We tend to enjoy staying in our “comfort zone”. But God knows we grow and mature better when we venture out of our “comfort zone”. The Bible is full of characters who didn’t want to do what God asked of them because they were uncomfortable with the situations.
During the reign of King Josiah, God spoke to Jeremiah and told him that he was to be a prophet to the nations (Vs. 5), but Jeremiah responded by saying, “I do not know how to speak; I am only a child.” (Vs. 6) Jeremiah was lacking in self-confidence. He did not feel that he was adequate enough, and his fears and his doubts about himself were threatening to keep him from stepping out in faith for God.
Moses—reluctant to leave behind the safety of his shepherd life in the back country of Midian to answer God’s call to go back to Egypt and confront the mighty pharaoh with God’s command to free the Israelites (Exodus 3 & 4)
The ten scouts—who didn’t trust God to lead them into the promised land of Canaan, thus causing the Israelites to waste 40 years in the wilderness before finally being allowed to enter Canaan (Numbers 13 & 14)
Jonah—who ran away from God and the mission to preach to the people of Nineveh (Jonah 1 & 2)
The rich young ruler—who was afraid and unwilling to give up the comfort of his wealthy lifestyle to follow Jesus (Luke 18:18-23)
Young John Mark—who abandoned Paul and Barnabas on their first missionary journey (Acts 13:13; 15:36-38)
All examples of people who were afraid or felt inadequate to step out in faith.
By taking part in a ministry within your church you will be blessed in many ways. You will work with and grow loving relationships with other church members. You will become vested in your church and it will become an even more important part of your life. You may be surprised at how much fun you can have at church.
Here are just a few of the opportunities we have for you to serve at Fellowship.

There are many more and YOU have a place at one (or 2 or 3…..) Talk to Pastor David or any team leader.
All you need to do is step out of that “Comfort Zone” and say “I want to help”.
And, as always, a big Thank You to all of our hard working volunteers at Fellowship.
