Memorial Day Weekend


We welcome you to church this morning with Sunday school at 9:30 and worship at 10:30. Pastor Gabe will be preaching today from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 in a sermon entitled, "We Do Not Lose Heart."

FSBC is a diverse church family thanks to the influence of Ft. Riley on the surrounding area. This Memorial Day weekend, we encourage you to remember those who have lost their lives in the fight for freedom. Our freedom isn't free. It has been paid for by the blood of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, and they laid down their lives for our country.

Likewise, our spiritual freedom required a great price. We had sinned against God and were following the enemy. What we deserved for our rebellion was death. But God sent His Son, Jesus, to be an atoning sacrifice for our sins. He rose again from the dead so that all who believe in Jesus will not perish, but have everlasting life. In Christ, we are set free from bondage to sin and to death. "If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed" (John 8:36).

Pray for our military families, and pray for those who have lost friends and family in battle. This weekend, we remember their sacrifice.
