THOUGHTS FROM BRAD


Last Sunday, one of the comments I made during the message was: Christians must be
diligent to read the Bible and meditate on it. Why? Because when the child of God looks

into the Word of God, he or she is transformed by the Spirit of God into the image of
God for the glory of God! So keep on staying into the Word. You can do it!

I want to thank each of you who attended our annual congregational meeting. It was a nice
time of fellowship. I especially want to thank all those who helped with the preparation for the
evening. Lastly, let me say a big thank you for all those who brought a pie. The desserts were
outstanding!
As indicated during our meeting, we will begin a 4 week Evangelism study in our
Sunday School classes during the month of March. The goal is to help you feel more
confident sharing your faith. Studies show that 85% of all those who do not attend a church,
would do so if they were simply invited. The study is entitled: Eats With Sinners. It is based
on Luke 15:2 which says, This man welcomes sinners and eats with them. We hope
you will make this study a priority and begin praying now that God will use it to bring Him
glory through your life.
Attention all men! This is your final opportunity to tell me if you plan to join us for this
Tuesdays Colossal Burger Night. All the fun begins at 6:00 P.M. Please indicate on the
back of your silent roll call card or speak to me directly before leaving. Thanks for your
cooperation.
If you are new to Fifth Avenue, you are cordially invited to join us immediately after the
church service this morning in the fellowship hall downstairs. At our Pizza with the
Pastor luncheon, we simply want to get better acquainted with you and answer any
questions you may have about the church. We will then give a brief introduction concerning
our church and some of the ministry we offer your family. We hope you will join us!
In His Service,
Brad

The Womens Ministry is hosting a Random Acts of Kindness Day
on Saturday, February 28th, from 11am 1pm. We plan to clean
different areas in our church, writing encouragement notes and
cards to people, and Delores Payne will be teaching some basic
crochet skills so we can make baby hats for newborns or preemies.
All ladies are asked to bring a dish to share for lunch.
If you have any ideas for random acts of kindness, please contact
Kim Seevers at 740-534-3638.

The Homestead Brides is a collection of stories that take place


on the vast frontier of our country. Promises of free land lured
thousands to stake their claim to the vast American plains.
They built make-do homes and put all they had into improving
the land. Nine adventures that depict the variety of ways God
helped homesteaders find someone with whom to share the
dream and the work. A part of our history as it was lived by
brave couples and families with faith in the promise of America.

WELCOME TO FIFTH AVENUE!


At FACC, we focus on loving God, loving people,
and turning the world upside down.
We are happy you chose to worship with us today. We hope you
return next week and bring your friends with you. If you would
please take a few minutes to fill out a Silent Roll Call Card,
located on the back of the pew, you can then place it in the
offering plate as it is passed. Thank you. For more information
about our great church, contact our minister, Brad Seevers at
Brad@new-churches.org or call him at 740.550.9882. Have a
great week and may God bless your life.

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

An Atonement for Sins"


Leviticus 16

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)

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

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.

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!
