What a fabulous time we had this year at our Spring Fling hosted by our women’s ministry of Fayette Baptist. Our vendors ranged from absolutely delicious gourmet popcorn to exceptional God-given talents and gifts including paintings, photography, quilts and jewelry making, just to name a few! There was definitely something for everyone and for all ages including the cheerleaders that kept us entertained with their fun stunts.

We had over 30 vendors come out and participate!

{Thank you all for making our day a success}

We had amazing door prizes {a tablet!!!} for the drawing to give to our guest.

Just when they didn’t think it could get any better we have dinner served to our precious ladies and a phenomenal speaker. God used her to speak to the hearts of these amazing ladies. {are you looking for the pennies in your life}

Our fabulous speaker Vicki Leavell is the senior pastor’s wife at First Baptist Millington and is also former Miss South Carolina.  She graced us with another one of her talents by starting her lesson with a song. What a privilege and honor to listen to her heart. She challenged us to see the “pennies” in life. Not to be discouraged by what this life brings but to have the faith that God is in control. We can always count on him to bring us through. He’s got this!

{Wow}

What an encouragement and great way to end the night.

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat at Fayette Baptist was a blast this year!

Although the weather was not exactly ideal, it didn’t stop people in the community from coming out and enjoying the evening.  With over 1,200 people in attendance, many people heard the gospel throughout the evening.

There was a huge amount of candy handed out, but even more exciting than the candy was our gospel scavenger hunt.  With every handful of candy handed out, there was also a slip of paper with a scripture reference on it that clearly presented the Good News!

It was a great time for all ages!  Please pray for us as we continue to contact the visitors from the evening.  We are praying God will use the Trunk or Treat to bring people to know Him!

One Year Anniversary

In the words of our pastor, Sunday, August 18th was a very special and monumental day in the life of Fayette Baptist Church.  We turned 1!  The Holy Spirit was at work all throughout the morning, and it was very evident.  Many have asked, “who all came and what all happened Sunday”?  Our attendance was an all time high at somewhere between 425-450 people.  We baptized more than we ever have in one day, with 4 people stirring the waters.  Our tithe was a one day high!  And best of all, we saw 4 adults begin a personal relationship with Christ!  They are a New Creation!  Praise the Lord!

The Holy Spirit was moving and at work during the prayer time prior to the service, as well as throughout the worship service and message.  We had a great time of fellowship as we fed barbecue to over 400 people.  It was a great day in the life of our church, and we are so thankful that God continues to work in and through Fayette Baptist.  Here’s just a quick look at our very special day.

One Year Anniversary Celebration

It is amazing that this Sunday, August 18th, Fayette Baptist Church will celebrate its one year anniversary!  Time has flown.  We have seen God do things that only He can do.  We are excited to invite you to our one year anniversary celebration.  We will meet at West Junior High at 10:30 for the worship service, and immediately following the service we will have a free barbecue lunch for everyone in attendance.  Please make plans to be there.  We would love to see all of our family, friends, and supporters of Fayette Baptist Church!

Family Mission Trip 2013

Last week Fayette Baptist took a family mission trip to Kilgore, Texas.  It was truly a blessing to be able to serve the Lord with our families outside of our community.  We teamed up with Forest Baptist Home’s student ministry to bless the Kilgore community in a variety of ways.  There were many different ministry opportunities, ranging from construction and landscape type work, to volunteering in children’s disability centers, to feeding men in homeless shelters, to working in their local Habitat for Humanity center, to putting on block parties, and much more.  More than one person came to know the Lord as their personal Savior through the week.  Hallelujah!  It was a great week for Fayette Baptist families!

Romans 10:14-15  says, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed?  and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?  and how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach, except they be sent?  as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

If you missed out this year, don’t worry; we plan on taking another family mission trip next year!  Make plans now to set aside a week in the summer of 2014 for the next family mission trip.  We can guarantee it will be a life-changing experience for you and your kids as you take the Gospel to new places!

VBS 2013…Silly Sock Day!

Last year we had the incredible opportunity to partner with the YMCA in Fayette County to do Vacation Bible School.  We were really excited to be able to do that again this year.  Today was the second day of Fayette Baptist’s Vacation Bible School.  The theme of the day was “Silly Sock Day”, and the kids came out fully prepared!

The children participated in four different areas throughout the day:  Bible, recreation, snacks, and crafts.  It was a great day, and the kids seemed to fully enjoy themselves!

Please pray for the volunteers who are working this week at VBS.  Also be in prayer that the children’s hearts would be receptive to the truths they are learning, and that there would be kids who give their hearts and lives to the Lord this week!

Friends at Fayette Day

Two Sundays ago, we had a special day where our church family was invited out to our prospective property to see the plans for the future home of Fayette Baptist Church.  It was an exciting day, as we had the opportunity to see what will hopefully be taking place in the future of our church.

Pastor Drew gave an overview of what the plans for the new church building will include while  everyone ate lunch, which was provided by the church.

The architectural plans were on display for everyone to look over.

Please continue to pray for Fayette Baptist as we seek God’s will and guidance on all of our upcoming decisions and direction for our new church building.  Even more than we desire a permanent place to meet, we desire to be in God’s perfect meeting place for Fayette.

Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not on thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”  Pray that we continue to acknowledge Him in all of our decisions, and that He in turn will continue to direct all of our paths.

Check back soon for more updates on the church property and building!

Pray that many will come to know HIM, and that all of the glory will go to HIM alone!
