Welcome to the FBCKC Youth Ministry weekly update: 03-16-2020 through 7-5-2020

  • Church services tell July 5th will continue to be at 10 am.    July 5th a day of reopening.    Life Groups will begin again at 9:30 am at the East Campus for our students with church services beginning at 10:30 am at the main campus.      
  • Do to the COVID-19 precautions and outbreak we are temporarily canceling all scheduled events tell further notice.    We will be doing video-based messages on Wednesdays at 5 pm and Sundays at 6 pm on our church FaceBook and YouTube Pages at  First Baptist Church Kimberling City.  We will also as a leadership team have daily devotions except for Saturdays starting at 9 am on FaceBook and YouTube.   Our Student Message on-line message will be on Wednesday evenings at 5 pm and Pastor Jeff Hardy at 7 pm on Facebook and YouTube.   There are also great Biblical Study tools, videos, and conferences on Right Now Media.    To sign on to our RightNow Media account text the number 41411 and enter the message RIGHTNOW MEDIA FBCKC.  This will send you a link to set up an account that is free through FBCKC.   I truly miss all of you and am praying for my students and your families, as well as our community, nation, and our world.   
  • Remember to utilize this time wisely and not lose sight of the opportunities God is giving you.   John 16:32-33 Jesus states that Indeed, an hour is coming and has come, when each of you will be scattered to his own home, and you will leave me alone.   Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.   I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace.   You will have suffering in this world.  Be courageous!   I have conquered the world.”
  • John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.   Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful.”
 Wednesday Nights we are going through the book of Ephesians:

  

Dust off your Bible and come Wednesday night and learn the purpose behind this wonderful treasure that so often gets left on bookshelves, or stuffed in a nightstand.   In many cases remains forgotten and unread.    

Bottom Line: We need to fill our minds and hearts with Scripture.

Main Question:  Do you realize the purpose and functions of the Bible?

  • Bible Memory Verse for the Week one:  1) John 8:32, 2) Romans 5:8, 3) 2 Timothy 3:15
  • 4) Matthew 4:44-45, 5) Matthew 24:5
 
Memorizing scripture has so many benefits when it comes to applying God’s Word to our everyday lives and to those around us.    Here is one tool to help you accomplish that.
  • We want every student to have a Bible, so if you don’t have one please let us know.
  • Summer Camp and Mission Trip sign ups will be coming out the week of March 19-31.  Be watching our webpage 

  • Recent Baptisms: Skylaar, Larisa and Tyler congratulations on your obedience in Baptism last Sunday.   We are so proud and are praying of each of you.
  • Recent Decisions for Christ in Salvation and wanting to follow in Baptism:   Beverly and Alana.   Congratulations girls we are so incredibly proud of you!    Baptism services are scheduled for March 29th for Beverly, Alana, Rielan and Austin.

 Recent events:   Went to Winter Jam 2020 at JQH Arena.    It was an amazing night!

 
      • CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR 2020 GRADUATES!    WE ARE SO INCREDIBLY PROUD OF EACH ONE OF YOU.   PSALM 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.   Graduates’ success comes only through the direction of God.  We love you and are excited about what God is going to do in this next chapter of your lives.

Given the recent abundance of information concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) from numerous health organizations, social media and other media outlets, we felt, as a church family it necessary to reach out to you and keep you informed.    Please stay up to date with our weekly updates, including the possibility of needing to go to on-line services if we deem it necessary do so or are directed by the government.     
  • To help contain the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases spread through respiratory droplets, including the flu, health officials have issued the following recommendations:
