Fan the Flame


"I thank God whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers.  Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy.  I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.  For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.  For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.      2 Timothy 1:3-7 NIV

This scripture is the reference point for the 2018 Heck-Jones Offering theme, "Fan the Flame".  This year FBC's WMU wants to honor the leaders of Mission Friends, GA's, RA's, and Youth on Mission for their commitment to "fanning the flame"  -- passing on the faith to the younger generation. 

Help us recognize these important leaders with a contribution by September 23rd.  You may go by the church office with your donation or place it in your offering envelope along with your tithe.  Make checks out to "FBC" and designate it to "Heck-Jones Offering" on the memo line of your check.  On the offering envelope, be sure to indicate it is for this purpose.

Be sure to check out the bulletin board outside the choir room and watch for a special "Fan the Flame" reminder on Sunday!

Thank you.
