You have asked and we have heard you. You want summer Bible studies. Join us as we study the “Armor of God” by Priscilla Shirer. Please RSVP HERE or sign up at our table on Sunday. This is a small group study that will meet in homes in our area. Begins the week of June 19th.
We are considering doing Beth Moore “Entrusted” on Thursday evenings at FBC Pflugerville during the summer. We need to know who is interested. Please vote so that we can make a decision.
We will let you know soon if we will offer this study.
Happy April! What a wonderful beginning to such a special month. As I watched the wildflowers bloom and the trees bud last month, I’m reminded again that God continually makes things new again, offering a chance to start again new and fresh each and everyday. What was once drab and colorless is bright and brings hope for a better day. I hope that you can find encouragement in that today.
Easter weekend will be a time for family and reflection at our church. On the evening of Good Friday, April 14th, we will have a service filled with wonderful music to usher you into the presence of the Lord. Then, Saturday beginning at 9:30am, is the EGGSTRAVAGANZA for families with children. Finally, our weekend finishes as we celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter morning, April 16th. I hope to you will come worship with us at First Baptist Church Pflugerville.
Our Spring Bible studies are coming to a close. I have loved this season of study for our women. I have personally been challenged to forget what lies behind and to continually strive for that which God has called me to do. Laying it down for Him and serving others, in HIS name. Praise God, I have far to go and I am thankful to be in the race with YOU, my sisters.
I would like to take a moment and thank those who have selflessly served in our Faith and Grace Bible study ministries. These ladies have planned, opened their homes, studied tirelessly and helped present the word of God to women all around our community. My heartfelt thanks goes to; Katie Cox (Grace Ministry Leader,) Tiffany Schweikhart, Terri Shellenberger, Susan Bell, Staci Towns, Debbie Walker, Eva Melton, Shellynne Wucher (Faith Minstry Leader,) Deborah Rogers, Carole McCarty, Beth Johnson, Shelli Hankins, Kim Longino and Melody Downing.
We are looking forward and have not yet decided what is coming next. Stay tuned for more information to come!
Next Game night will be April 21st at 6:30pm at the home of Amanda Rennemeyer
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Happy March! I have just a few items for you. I hope you are participating in one of our Bible studies. I have heard great things about both. I am so amazed at how many of you are faithful to study the Word of God and to make it a priority in your life. What a difference it makes when we hide His truths in our heart. He gives us strength when we are weak and discouraged and brings His truths to mind when we need them most.
If you are not already using the Scripture writing plans, please consider this 10 minute task. I promise it will become a grounding and meaningful time with Him. This month’s verses are about Grace. How wonderful!
I am still overflowing with thoughts and emotions from this past weekend. We had about 70 ladies gather for IF:PFLUGERVILLE 2017. We were challenged and inspired. Inspired not to do big grandiose things for the Kingdom, but to slow down and pour our lives in to each other. To build community and find one person to decide to show up for; to give of ourselves selflessly and show them Jesus. That’s it. Show them Jesus, in small ways. In your time, service and unconditional love. We can do it ladies. You touch one life. Then they touch one life and it just continues. What a blessing.
I am so very grateful for our Sister to Sister Team. They worked tirelessly to create a special place for us to be together. My heartfelt thanks go to Shelli Hankins, Katie Cox, Shellynne Wucher, Kim Longino, Terri Shellenberger, Tiffany Schweikhart, Melody Downing, Susan Bell, Lori Walker, Deborah Rogers and Carole McCarty. These ladies help, not only with special events but our Bible Study ministry as well. We are also extremely grateful for the assistance of Karen Small in our church office and to the Media team for keeping us going through the weekend.

It’s Fall Y’all! Well, at least on our calendar. I love Fall. I’m a cool weather girl. The days are not as hot and a light breeze cools off the evening in just the right way. Evenings begin to get darker sooner. We pull out the jeans and sweaters and just wait for the first morning when it is cool enough to put them on. Oh how I love it. October is also a return to routines. In our Sister to Sister Ministry that means Bible studies are in full swing. Our FAITH groups are diving into “Jesus on Every Page” and finding hidden truths in the Old Testament that show God’s plan of redemption for us begin all the way back in Gen. 1:1. Our GRACE groups are discovering in “Open Your Bible” that the Bible isn’t just for occasional use but it is for YOU an it is for NOW. How exciting to know that we have women studying God’s word and building relationships throughout the week, in locations all across our community. We have over 120 women involved in studies this Fall. As we plan ahead for our next studies, would you please answer this quick poll?
Community Baby Shower The Pflugerville Pregnancy Resource Center depends on us and other churches in our area to help them in the great ministry they have.

Dear Sisters, it has been a long summer. I feel like it has been ages since we studied the Word together. I am so very excited about our studies this Fall. We have begun registration for both studies. I have some information to share with you that is very important.

Let me tell you, when I am not meeting weekly with you ladies to study God’s word, my heart aches to be in fellowship with you again. When we come together, open the Bible and invite the Holy Spirit to speak to our hearts, it is sacred and so powerful. Lives are changed during these studies, whether you are in a small group, sitting on a couch in a home or on a folding chair in the Fellowship Hall, God is ready to work in your life.
