WEDNESDAY PRAYER MEETINGS • 7PM

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12:12 (ESV).

As we all work at living life in a different way than we’ve ever experienced, our opportunity for prayer is greater than ever—not just the individual prayers that we’re all lifting up, but the prayers of God’s people assembled together and crying out to Him. 

If you have not already, navigate to our Facebook page, Fellowship Bible Church, Roswell and like our page. You will then receive notifications of these live events. We look forward to lifting our hearts and prayers UP to God together!

GIVING IS WORSHIP

It is increasingly important to continue our generous giving to Fellowship. We have many opportunities to serve, support, and love our neighbors well during this crisis. There are a few ways to give during this time. One is through our giving app, PushPay. Another is via your bank's bill pay system. And as of now, we are still receiving mail at PO Box 1870, Roswell, GA 30077. 

Here's one more way you may not have thought of. Many of us are doing our online shopping through Amazon Prime. Through Prime, you are able to designate Fellowship as your supported charity. Select Fellowship Bible Church of Roswell Inc and Amazon will send .05% of your purchase to go toward funding the many ministries we support.

Thank you for partnering with us as a church who loves God and loves others unconditionally!

STUCK AT HOME & ERRAND RUNNERS

After prayer and consideration, we have determined that one of the better ways we can love one another during this time of health concerns brought on by the Coronavirus is by serving our most vulnerable members of our family. In times like these, it is easy to think of ourselves before we think of others. We believe we have an opportunity to love others as we love ourselves and in so doing, prove to be disciples of Jesus.

At this time, we are asking that anyone in good health consider making themselves available to run groceries and other needed items to our Fellowship Family who need to remain home for their safety. This is an opportunity to serve the most vulnerable members of our church family—primarily, our senior adult community. Below is an opportunity to sign up to be a "runner." 

There is also a link if you are one of those stuck at home and need someone to make a quick run to the store or run some other errand or you.

THIS is what being a part of the Family of God looks like! 

But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. 1Corinthians 12:24-26 (ESV)

stuck at home

We believe God is our help and our hope in times of trouble. We also believe God uses His Word, His Spirit, and His people to provide this comfort. Sometimes people feel that reaching out for help is a show of weakness or lack of spirituality but the Bible is clear that we need help from others in order to grow emotionally and spiritually. 

For now, until we know more, our heart's desire for any member of our church family who contracts COVID-19 is to care for them in at least these three ways

  • care support (prayer, shepherding care)
  • logistical support (helping deliver groceries, prescriptions, supplies)
  • financial support (looking for ways to lift some of the burdens they may feel).

Please do not hesitate to contact us for care, prayer, or help with the challenges of social distancing. At Fellowship, nobody should hurt alone. 

care connection

Even though our building is closed, our ministry to children and their families has not. Our heart has always been to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children and that has not changed during this season. What has changed is how that happens. Since we will not have the privilege of children being with us in the classroom environments, we want to bring the classrooms to your homes.

We have provided the curriculum tools Nursery, Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary that we would be using if we were still gathering on Sundays. This is for parents and caregivers to use in your homes and decide how to engage your family in a time and a way that works for you. What a chance to use this interruption for an opportunity for spiritual conversations and to engage your children in the truth of God’s Word.

We have also created a Facebook Group for FellowshipKids Parents. We will offer a wide variety of resources and ideas for you to use during the extra time you have at home.

Our hope and prayer is that all of these will be tools for each of us to make disciples of the children in our homes from the littlest to the oldest.

Weekly Messages // Fellowship Students launched a new online series this week called Undefeated and it is all about the victory we experience over separation, sin, and death because of what Jesus has done for us. Each Thursday, a new video message from Pastor Paul or Pastor Josh is posted on our website.

Small Group Leaders are reaching out to encourage their students to watch the video and then discuss it together in “virtual” small group meetings.

Wednesday Night High School Discipleship groups continue their study and meet online as a group with their Discipleship Leaders. 

Middle School Leadership is on hold for the next few weeks.
