We have completed our study on Psalm 119 last week.   If you missed any of the sermons, they are available on the FBC.org YouTube channel.  I encourage you to go listen to them.   

 

This Sunday, Dr. Danny Kirkpatrick will be bringing a message of hope from God's word.   Please make plan's to attend as Danny is always a blessing and has a word of truth to challenge us in our lives where we are at in our spiritual walk.

Pastor Search Committee:

  • The Pastor Search Committee has mailed out its Congregational Survey.  We ask that you prayerfully answer the questions, seeking God's direction on where He is leading our church.  Hard copies are available in the sanctuary, or you can ask a committee member to assist you in obtaining one.  The survey is open for middle and high school students and adults to complete before September 19th.  We value your input and are praying for you as you participate in the important step in the process.
  • We met with Steve Ballew, Executive Director of the Baptist Convention of NM, to answer our questions and provide training on best practices for pastor search committees.  He provided us with many tools and valuable insight and continues to offer his prayerful support to our congregation during this interim period.
  • This week, we submitted the job posting on various online Southern Baptist job boards and request that you pray diligently and specifically over the next 60 days as men across the country respond and the committee actively works through this next stage of the process.  We have already received 30+ resume's for the position.
