AWESOME Opportunity to bless the Brookshires!

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 preparing to return to east Asia. They recently spoke to us at our last FIT "5th Sunday."  John flew back to their home last Monday and will remain there for the rest of the month while Shannon is here in Tulsa with their 4 kids.  We would like to bless her with some meals while John is away!
 
Please click on the link below to see the available dates for meal delivery. If you are not able to bring a meal on the listed dates, freezer meals that she could warm up and use at a later date would also be a blessing! You can contact Shannon at 940-535-8639 to arrange drop-off.

 New Women's Sunday School Class!


For all FIT Women, Tina Gross, a member of STBC, is interested in starting a church-wide, ladies-only class for women in their 30’s and 40’s. Marital status does not matter - members of this class could be married, single, divorced, or widowed. She needs to have a group of 4-6 women who are committed to join with her before she can start the process of beginning a new class.

 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!
