Transcript of SONSHINE NEWS - Amazon S3 Mother¢â‚¬â„¢s Day Brunch Sunday,...

  • First Baptist Church 107 S. Maple St. Douglass, KS 67039 (316) 746-2929 ▌ Vol.59, No. 3

    Beloved Family,

    It is such an incredible privilege to

    be able to minister alongside of you

    at FBC Douglass! I am so excited to

    see our church making preparations

    to send a mission team to Nebraska.

    As we join with North Park Church of Columbus to pro-

    vide assistance in the planting of a new church in David

    City, our church will be participating in our Lord’s Great

    Commission in a very tangible way.

    “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,

    baptizing them in the name of the Father and of

    the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to

    observe everything I have commanded you.”

    Matthew 28:19-20 (HCSB)

    Working to establish new churches, or “church plant-

    ing” as it is commonly known, has become a vital part of

    Southern Baptist strategies, particularly in the United

    States and Canada, through our North American Mission

    Board. While I am convinced that Scripture insists that we

    must be diligent not to forsake the spiritual nurture and

    development of existing churches, the practice of planting

    new churches can reach significant numbers of lost people

    with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many such people might

    never have darkened the door to an existing church, but

    the unique niche or fresh energy of a church plant is often

    able to convey the Gospel to them in a penetrating way.

    Currently, there are two church plants which are affili-

    ated with our local South Central Association of Southern

    Baptists, and at least two more should be joining the

    SCASB in the next few months. More are on the horizon!

    FBCD financially supports two of these church plants

    with $3,000 per year each. Our David City mission is also

    directly supportive of church plant-

    ing. I praise God for your vision to

    support church planting and your de-

    sire to see the Gospel planted and

    growing throughout our nation!

    From Voyt’s Heart…


    Pastor Voyt Lynn


    Love David City, Change David City!

    June 10-16, 2012

    FBCD ON MISSION! FBCD is making preparations for a mission trip to Ne-

    braska! God has laid it on the heart of North Park Church

    in Columbus, NE to plant a new church in nearby David

    City. FBCD has committed to “Love David City, Change

    David City!” and will come alongside our brothers and

    sisters in Christ to help with the start of this new church.

    Our mission team will depart Douglass following

    lunch after the morning worship celebration on Sunday,

    June 10 and will return Saturday, June 16. During their

    stay in Nebraska, the mission team will help North Park

    Church conduct two events in David City: a youth rally

    and a block party. To promote both these events and the

    new church, we will canvas the David City area with pro-

    motional flyers.

    FBCD members who feel led to participate in the trip

    should provide $50 toward their expenses (due Wednes-

    day, June 6); however, do not let a lack of finances keep

    you from going on this trip. If you believe that the Holy

    Spirit is leading you to participate, but money is a prob-

    lem, please contact Pastor Voyt Lynn. Scholarship funds

    are available. A Collection for the Saints...

    In addition to the work being done on the field by the

    mission team, we will also send along a love offering for

    the new church plant. FBCD is collecting free will gifts to

    the Love David City, Change David City! fund. Those

    A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words Each Sunday through May 6, pho-

    tographs will be taken for the new

    FBCD directory. If you would like to

    have your family’s picture taken,

    please meet in the Student Ministry

    classroom after the morning worship

    celebration. There is no cost. The direc-

    tory is being put together “in-house.”

    AWANA Clubbers Receive Awards FBCD’s AWANA Clubs will celebrate the clubbers’

    hard work this season with Awards Night on Wednesday,

    May 9 at 6:30 p.m. The awards night is a family and

    church-wide celebration of the clubbers’ achievements,

    and parents and friends of AWANA clubbers are invited to

    attend. This will be the last meeting of FBCD AWANA

    Clubs until the beginning of the next school year.

    NEW GROWTH GROUPS BEGIN JUNE 6 Three new Growth Groups will begin at FBCD Wed.,

    June 6. Experiencing God will be offered again with Pas-

    tor Voyt Lynn facilitating. Jerry and Janice Spencer will

    lead another group into a study of worship drawn from

    Tom Kraeuter’s book Worship Is… What?!: Rethinking

    Our Ideas about Worship. Also, Becky Lynn will be lead-

    ing a women’s group in the study of A Woman after

    God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth George.

    Women’s Ministry Stays Active New Growth Group, Ladies Tea Forthcoming

    We have had an exciting beginning with the Women’s

    Ministry at FBCD! Previous events and Bible studies

    have been well-received, and our ministry team is already

    planning for 2013! Here are some of the things you can

    look forward to for this summer.

    Beginning Wednesday, June 6, Becky Lynn is leading

    a study of A Woman after God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth

    George. When we follow God in every area of our lives,

    we experience lasting peace and joy.

    In this study, we will discuss how a

    woman can pursue God’s priorities--

    in her walk with Him, in her mar-

    riage, with her children, in her min-

    istry--and become A Woman after

    God’s Own Heart.

    On Saturday, June 23, from 10:00 a.m. - noon, the

    Women’s Ministry team will be hosting a Ladies’ Tea to

    honor the women in our lives. If there is a woman or

    young lady in your life who is special to you, please bring

    her with you! Girls of all ages are invited--little girls up to

    our wise and seasoned women! Please bring a snack or

    finger food (with your recipe) and a tea cup for yourself

    and each of your guests. Feel free to put on your fanciest

    finery, including hats and gloves, if you wish. Please reg-

    ister on the sign-up sheet in the church foyer.

    Moms, do you need a day to get some things done or

    spend time alone with your hubby? Have we got the day

    for you! On Saturday, July 7, the Women’s Ministry team

    is arranging a Mom’s Day Out for you from 9:00 a.m. un-

    til 3:00 p.m. Just drop your kids off at the church any time

    after 9:00 and pick them up any time before 3:00 and take

    care of... whatever you need to take of! We will provide

    lunch and snacks while your child is with us. Did I men-

    tion that this is free?!!! A sign-up sheet will be available

    for registration closer to the date.
