The Brookshires head home!

Many of you have had the pleasure of getting to know John and Shannon Brookshire over the last few months.  They have been home with us on furlough but are now heading back to east Asia tomorrow, May 23rd. They will head to the airport around 3:00 pm and their flight leaves at 5:55 pm. Please be in prayer for them as they do the final packing and then travel for a very long time with their 4 kiddos!

ALL FIT "5th Sunday" moved back one week to June 7th!

Sunday - June 7th - 9:30 to 10:45 AM - STBC

Our normal 5th Sunday should be May 31st but we are moving it back one week to June 7th! SO, please plan to be in Bible Study all together on June 7 as we welcome Greg and Shannon Pierce, who are home on furlough from their work with Student Mobilization in Pune, India!

Greg and Shannon have two daughters, ages 8 and 6, and have been on the field for the past 5 years. Greg is in charge of the Stumo team that launched Pune, so he is not only charged with bringing the light of Jesus to God’s people in India, he also is responsible for the Stumo team of young singles that went with him (many of whom are now young marrieds!) We are thrilled to hear from both of them about their exciting work and about how we can all make an impact for eternity right where we are!

Guatemala Mission Trip: September 26-October 3

If you have interest in going with us in September, please let e-mail Joe Donelson or Robert Shain know as soon as possible.

 Tuesday Morning Bible Study

Tuesdays - 6:45am - 8:00am - STBC Conference Room

Every Tuesday morning a group of FiT men gather to study the week's Quarterly lesson and prepare for Sunday. We share prayer requests and try to make it through the lesson (with varying levels of success). This group is open to anyone who would like to attend. The conference room is just beside the church office at the main entrance.


Prayer Team for Pastor Search

Four members of FIT are serving on the Pastor Search Committee:  Robin Curry, Mike Brown, Krista Smith, and Erin Zimmerman. As you know, this is a momentous responsibility and one that must be undergirded with prayer!! Would you be willing to serve as well by praying regularly for this group? We will keep you posted via email with specific prayer needs to lift up each week. We are getting organized now. Email Carol below if you have not already signed up in class!
