It's Fall Y'all

We are thrilled to announce that Lynda House will be leading our Sister to Sister Ministry at FBC Plyndaflugerville.  We hope you will pray for her and our entire Ministry as she follows God’s call to serve.   Lynda  became of member of FBC Pflugerville with her husband in 2011 and has lived in Pflugerville since 1999. She has been married to her husband, Rob, for 31 years and have raised 3 sons together, Robby, Joshua and Blake.  She has been active with service in children’s Sunday school, vacation bible school and Awana for over 30 years. She and Rob met while serving in Awana and driving church buses at their church in Amarillo, Texas where they met.

A word from Lynda…

I knew of Jesus and began memorizing God’s word at a very young age through the guidance of my father and grandmother and the many years of Sunday school and VBS; however I accepted Jesus as my personal savior and became a Christ follower on May 12, 1978.   I am honored to have this opportunity to serve the women of First Baptist Church in this new role. I look forward to serving with this team and will continue to bring the women of our church together in study, fun and fellowship while reaching out to our community.

A word from Katie…Harvey Help1

First off, thank you! Just a few weeks back we asked for help in assisting FBC Rockport and FBC Refugio who were in, and still are in, great need due to the devastations left by Hurricane Harvey. I am still blown away with all those who brought items just days after our announcement. We’ve collected anywhere from diapers to cleaning supplies to $5,400 in cash and gift card donations. So thank you all for truly being the hands and feet of Jesus! We plan to share more stories about the churches once we get the donations to them. 

As for future events, mark your calendars for Friday, December 8th. We will be having a night of fellowship with hot cocoa and desserts while making a craft.  And I promise, even if you aren’t crafty, you will be able to do this craft and will have fun while doing it. More details to come later, but go ahead and pencil it on your calendar because you will not want to miss it!

A word from Shellynne…

Our FAITH Bible study of “When God Doesn’t Fix It” is off to a tremendous start! We have a great group at both our Thursday evening and Friday morning study. God when God doesn't fix itis moving in our small groups as we discuss the week’s study and pray together. And the video and large group time has hammered some truth into our souls.

 

Have you considered how it is absolutely essential that we understand just how BAD the bad news of sin is, if we are going to fully understand the incredible good news of the gospel and the hope we have in Jesus? We have learned that we should not be surprised by trouble – John 16:33. And that our best made plans may not be God’s plan at all. Will we submit ourselves to His plans?

In our FAITH study…“We don’t just read the Scriptures for some tips on living or a spiritual pep talk. We submit ourselves to the Scriptures, asking God to use his Word to transform our lives.” (Laura Story) There is still time to join us for the transforming work of God in our midst!

A Word from Katie:

On August 15th, we will have a Fall Kickoff event where we will announce our Fall Bible studies, as well as fellowshipping around dinner tables with ladies of all ages. We will have deep conversations about our faith and walk with Christ. What better way to get to know ladies in the church than with food and good conversation. This will be a potluck event in the MPB, so mark your calendars and start looking for more details in the weeks to come.


 

GRACE Bible Fellowship

A Word from Staci:

Our  Summer, “Armor of God” study, is underway and going well.  If you didn’t get a chance to join us for this, don’t worry our leadership team is already making plans for our Fall study.   Please follow us on Facebook at Grace Women’s Ministry to stay in the loop as to what we have going on.

Our Grace Fellowships are women coming together in small home groups for the purpose of reaching the lost and encouraging the saved through practical bible study. 


FAITH Bible Fellowship

A Word from Shellynne:

I am excited! I have stacks of books and hours of videos that I am reviewing in anticipation of our Fall FAITH on campus Bible Study.

“Oh, the depth of riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God”     Romans 11:33.

Consider the wonder of that verse! God has graciously given us His Word so we can learn His wisdom and gain knowledge of Him. In September, the FAITH study will be starting up again. Come sit at the feet of Jesus with us. Be sure to read the August newsletter to see the details of our upcoming study. It is almost here!

Our Faith Bible Fellowship is a weekly Bible study that meets on our FBC Pflugerville campus on Thursday evenings and Friday mornings throughout the school year.  This multi-generational ladies study is a great way to dig deeper in the word.

April News

 

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!

God is within her, she will not fall…

Psalms 46:5a

What encouragement this is to me.  When I am feeling overwhelmed by this busy, crazy hectic life, I am so thankful to know that He will not let me fall.  I know I have been close before, on the edge even, feeling alone and afraid.  He was there.  He pulled me right back up again.  I hope that today, no matter where you are or what is going on in your life, remember who is waiting to to pull you back up.


I can not believe it is May!  This time of year always sneaks up on me.  Especially with children in school.  There are tests, projects, field trips, awards.Oh the list just goes on.  And then Summer!  But, don’t you love all the green lawns, trees and beautiful flowers?  It is a lovely time of year.  I hope you can get out and enjoy it before it gets too hot.

Let me say again a huge thank you to all the ladies who had a part in makinshirt1g our AWAKEN event so meaningful.  A special thank you to all who provided the incredibly     delicious pies.  Our time together that weekend was powerful.  I am so grateful for what we heard both in song and the word of God proclaimed.  If you didn’t have a chance to go or you didn’t have a chance to buy your new Sister to Sister shirt for the year, we still have some.  We have them at our table on Sunday mornings.  They are $10.


There are a few announcements to make AOG Summer 2016as we head into the Summer months.  Back by

I have added the May Scripture Writing plan from Shannon at Sweet Blessings .  I love doing these.  This month the verses focus on fear and anxiety.  I think we can all benefit from writing what the Lord says on these topics.

Blessings!
