BITS FROM BRO. DAVE

AMI SH COUNTRY TRI P: We still have
a number of seats left for our trip, on
Thursday, October 16. (Thats this
week!) We will be visiting the David
Warther Museum. David Warther is a
skilled craftsman following in the
footsteps of his very talented father and
grandfather. Davids specialty is the
carving of miniature ships, from ancient
to more modern. A feature article, on his
work, appeared in the September 14 issue
of Country Living. After our museum
tour, we will have lunch at the Dutch
Valley restaurant and visit our favorite
cheese shops in the afternoon. The cost,
for travel and museum admission, will be
$15 per person. We will depart at 7:30
am and return in late afternoon. A sign-
up sheet is posted. Payment is due at
signup. Contact me today!

MI DWEEK BI BLE STUDI ES: Our two
Wednesday study groups will resume this
week (Oct. 15). Our current study is
titled A Brief Survey Of Old Testament
History. Study outlines are available.
We meet at 10:00 AM and 6:30 PM. The
same material is covered in each session.
Why not join us?

FUTURE EVENTS: Mark your
calendars and plan to share in our annual
Thanksgiving Dinner, on November 16.
Our friend, Tom Shelton, will be
providing entertainment. On December
11, we are planning a special catered
lunch for our Keenagers and friends.
Watch for details!

FI NAL THOUGHT: A reputation once
broken may possibly be repaired, but the
world will always keep its eye on the spot
where the crack was.
THOUGHTS FROM BRAD

Our Wednesday night, Respectable Sins elective,
will study chapters 8 & 9 this week. Please prepare
having read those chapters. We start at 6:15. Im
looking forward to another great night of
discussion.

Our next great night of fellowship will be a meal on
October 29
th
. All the fun will last from 5:15-6:15
in the fellowship hall. We will enjoy our first ever
SPUDWEISER night. If you have never done
this before, it is a potato bar where you can add all
the trimmings to your liking. Following the meal,
we will watch a family oriented video so
please plan to join us. So that we can be good
stewards of our finances, we will ask for a $2 per
person donation for the meal.

I want to take this opportunity to inform you of a
great event coming to the Greater Columbus
Convention Center. The event is called ICOM. That
is an acronym for International Conference on
Missions. This years event will be held the week
of November 14-15
th
. This convention could be
compared to the NACC which is held each summer
but the emphasis of this convention is opening our
eyes to the world of missions. This convention will
include great worship and great speaking. If you
have ever thought about the possibility of traveling
abroad to be used by God on a short-term mission
adventure, then this is for you. If you have ever
considered going into full-time missions, then this is
for you. If you want to go just to hear about what
God is doing globally, then this is for you. Continue
looking for more information about ICOM as more
details come our way. We will plan to attend on
Friday, November 14
th
as a group. If you want to
attend, begin signing up on the bulletin board in
the coat room.

This weeks prayer: God, give my church and
me a heart for our community. Let me see people
through your eyes. And give me the courage and
the wisdom to let go of this church, so that others
who best reflect this community can lead us and
teach us. In Jesus name, Amen!

In His Service, Brad

The Scent of Lilacs
by Ann Gabhart
After the summer of 1964, life for Jocie Brooke will never
be the same.

Life-changing events rarely happen in quiet Hollyhill,
Kentucky, and when they do, they are few and far
between. But for young Jocie Brooke and her family, they
happen all at once during the humid summer of 1964.
Though on the surface things are just fine, it seems like
everyone in Jocie's life has something they're not saying,
something they're hiding from her--and from themselves.
As Jocie digs into her family's past, she stirs up a
whirlwind of discoveries. Will she find the answers
everyone so desperately needs? Or will her questions
lead to truths better left hidden?

Combining unforgettable characters, true-to-life struggles,
and the perfect dose of humor and nostalgia, this riveting
story from bestselling author Ann Gabhart explores the
very essence of new life and love.
Carriage Court Service
Today at 2:00 p.m.

We invite everyone to worship today

Core Values...

Values central to the life, mission and
vision of Fifth Avenue Church of Christ are:

Christ-Centered Worship
We make it a priority every Sunday to celebrate Jesus through our
music. (Romans 11:36-12:1-2). We focus on Jesus through grace-
based preaching and teaching & understand the Bible is our
authority (2 Timothy 3:16).

Church Health and Biblical Balance
Church health becomes reality when God's people seek harmony &
live consistently. We expect every member to protect the unity
of Christ's Church. (Romans 12:16; 1 Peter 3:8)

Global Evangelism
We are constant to our founding call to worldwide evangelism,
proclaiming to all that Jesus Christ is the Savior, Healer, and Soon-
Coming King (Acts 20:27).

Fellowship and Ministry
After people begin their journey with Jesus, we will equip them to
find a ministry based upon their strengths. We want everyone to
serve in some capacity. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) We also want His
church to be the living evidence of His love and power to the world.

Discipleship
We do not want you to "get religion" here at Fifth Avenue Church of
Christ in Lancaster. We are all about teaching you that Jesus seeks
a daily relationship with Him through a life of obedience. In other
words, we want to see the things you are taught actually change
your lifestyle & your daily decisions.

Social Conscience
We place high value on the sanctity of human life, of Biblical
marriage and morality, and we welcome ethnic diversity (Isaiah
56:7; Philippians 2:15-16).



OUR PURPOSE

WE EXIST TO

Exalt Gods Greatness;
Evangelize Gods Work
Equip Gods People
Express Gods Love through Jesus Christ

OUR MISSION
To Love God and Love
People!
How Can I Respond Today?
At FACC we look to the Bible for guidance on all
issues. We believe that Gods Word is clear
concerning what a person must do to become a
Christian.
Trust that Jesus can bring you to salvation.
Turn (repent) from the sin in your life.
Confess your desire to make Jesus the Lord
of your life.
Be baptized (immersed) in water for the
forgiveness of sins and to receive the Holy
Spirit into your life.
To make this life decision for Christ, we ask that you
come forward during our commitment song at the
conclusion of the Sunday message. Baptized believers
are welcome to become members at FACC by coming
forward on Sunday morning or by seeing our Senior
Minister to discuss this further. We ask that you
complete a series of Curious classes to help you
better understand what you are committing to as a
member. If you would like to take a Curious class,
please indicate this on your Silent Roll Call Card.
