Midweek – 7.7.17

This week we’re looking at Ephesians 4:7-10 and how Jesus, with all authority (after descending and ascending), gives gifts to his church so that they can walk in a manner worthy of their calling. Spend some time in the text below. Read it, meditate on it and allow it to minister to you.

1) I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2) with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3) eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4) There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— 5) one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6) one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 7) But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. 8) Therefore it says,

“When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,
    and he gave gifts to men.”

9) (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth? 10) He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Stephen also covers the follow:

  1. Zac’s Mission and Worship Night on July 23 at 7pm
  2. Ryan and Chelsea’s going away party on July 14 at 5pm

Midweek – May 11, 2017

Ephesians 3:8-10

To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things, 10 so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.


Online Giving

As you some of you have probably heard over the last couple of months, we are moving our church administration over to the market leading church content management software, Planning Center, and with this migration comes a new online giving platform for us all to enjoy. 

Questions to help you make the switch

When are we finalizing the switch?
We plan on completing the move over to this new online giving system on May 31.

What will I need to do before then?
Please make sure that you have logged into your old account (http://www.churchofficegiving.com/dl/?uid=wils265132) and printed out your up-to-date giving records for tax purposes at the end of this year. Unfortunately your giving records will not migrate over to the new system. We will also print out a copy of those records for you too and make it available you at the end of 2017.

How do I cancel my automatic payment?
Log into your account as you normally would, then choose the option ‘Scheduled Giving’ on the left hand menu. Once your are in that section scroll down to the bottom where it should have an option for you to deactivate/delete schedule. Make sure you click on that option and you should be all set to go.

When should I start giving on the new system?
As soon as possible! Please setup your new account on our new Planning Center platform by clicking this link.

Can I use text giving on the new system?

Yes! If it’s easier for you, our new system accomidates text giving. 

Just “Text any amount to 84321 to give.” That’s it and then follow the rest of the instructions. Setup takes about two minutes, tops. After that, donating is as simple as sending a text. It’s the easiest, most spontaneous way to donate!

Text-to-Give is included in your monthly Giving subscription. Learn more about this feature.

How long will the old donation system be available for?
During the month of May we are transitioning away from the old system. If you haven’t given yet this month, please start using the new system instead.


Ephesians 3:1-7 – Resources

Ian just got done preaching out of Ephesians 3:1-7 and explained how God’s power makes the Son known through the Spirit’s work in us. He spent time examining exactly what Paul says about God’s calling and covered three important points.

  1. Paul’s calling was steeping in Christ’s grace (1-3)
  2. The Spirit always reveals calling (4-5)
  3. Our calling is as limited as our Gospel (6-7)

FBC Inside – May 4, 2017 – Midweek

Ephesians 3

For this reason I, Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles—assuming that you have heard of the stewardship of God’s grace that was given to me for you, how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly. When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
