Good morning! “I rejoice with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’” -Psalm 122:1

It is a pleasure to gather together today as the body of Christ.

The work of the Food Bank is going very well and we are beginning to have a full grasp of the opportunities that are before us. Thank you for your willingness to support this work through your financial assistance, your prayers, and your hands/feet. It is going to be a great ministry opportunity in the years ahead. Please continue to pray for this ministry.

This morning we will study 1 John 4:13-21. Three distinct times in this short letter John has turned his attention to the subject of love. In the 105 verses of the letter, he used the word ‘love’ almost sixty times. In the last half of the fourth chapter alone he used the word love 27 times. John was overwhelmed with God’s amazing love for him. It should amaze us, too. Never forget, God’s love is not because of anything that we have done. It is because of who He is! God is love!

Thank you for being here today!

Summer is almost here! With only a couple weeks of school left for Sumner County before the break, our team is making final preparations for an incredible summer.

It will begin with the student ministry headed to camp. The high school group will go to Shocco Springs Conference Center in Talledega, AL. They leave two weeks from today. The middle school group will leave on Memorial Day for Ridgecrest, NC. Both will experience a week of connecting to God and others. At this time, around 300 students are registered for the camps.

Camps are expensive. It costs are several hundred dollars for a student to attend. Because camps are “big rocks” of our ministry, the church pays for over half of the costs. In addition, scholarships are also available. We want to insure that every student can attend. We can do this because of your faithfulness in giving to the ministry of FBCH. Thank you!

The Preteen camp will be in July. They are going to Linden Valley Camp in Linden. TN. We are praying to see 250 or more attend. Registration is now underway.

It is a joy to serve you.

Wednesday Nights •

• 6:30 pm • Weekley 1103 •

Our mission at BetterMan is to activate men’s lives to a “better” masculinity; one that lifts up others, builds up others, and gives life to others. This is the true masculinity God designed from the beginning for men to pursue. Our passion is to help men discover and implement that design by fostering a growing community of men who desire a better, more fulfilling life from our work, family, friends, marriages, and from our relationship with God.
