SALT: Outreach Opportunities

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:13-16

SALT Update & Serving Opportunity

FBC’s outreach focus for January has been the Manchester Fellowship of Churches.  On your behalf, and thanks to your regular giving, the Outreach Ministry is designating $300 to be sent to them this month. Additionally, we challenge every person who is able to donate $1 (or more as the Spirit leads) to further help people in need from our community. Designate your gifts by writing “FOC” on your check memo, giving envelope, or online giving note.

On January 26, approximately 20 FBC attendees took part in preparing food, praying for and serving dinner to over 100 members of our local community at the monthly Fellowship of Churches Community Meal. In addition to food, we encouraged and offered to pray for the recipients, accepting 16 written prayer requests.  Thank you to all of you who participated and for being SALT to our community!  It wouldn’t have come together so nicely without everyone playing a part. 

The February Outreach focus will be the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA.). The next scheduled opportunity to serve and be the hands and feet of Jesus will be to provide snacks for MU’s FCA Super Bowl Party next Sunday, February 7, at the 402 House.  Around 20 FCA students are expected to attend, and are all encouraged to bring a non-churched guest. Please take a look at the sign-up sheet in the foyer to see what you can provide. Items can be labeled “College Super Bowl Party” and left in the church kitchen, freezer or refrigerator. 

How can we help you bless those you see or know? The Ministry of Outreach may have funds available to help with your blessing opportunity. Contact the office to find out how to get financial assistance with your SALT idea!
