the special contribution being made, through the years, by certain ones within our congregation. I want to, personally, recognize and give thanks to our Dorcas Ladies for their continuing service in organizing and serving meals for our grieving families. I really appreciate you and know the affected families do as well.

I was reminded, again, this week of

March, will take us to The Franklin Park Conservatory, in

Columbus. The trip is set for Tuesday, March 20, with

departure at 8:50 AM. The special event at FPC features

“orchids, art, blooms and butterflies”. The cost of

admission and transportation is $9 per person. Lunch will

be at the MCL Cafeteria. We have a full “sign-up sheet”. However, we always have some cancellations, so I would urge you to sign on as “stand-bys”. The sign up sheet remains posted.


AM and 6:30 PM are involved in a study of “The Inner- Testament Period”. These lessons will summarize events and circumstances between the writing of the final Old Testament books and the advent of Jesus. This study is being led by Sue Tingler.

Our two study groups, meeting at 10:00

Apostle Peter says that Paul wrote “some things that are hard to understand” (11 Peter 3:15-16). This week, March 11, we are looking at “Destroying God’s Temple” (I Corinthians 3:16-17). Next week, our investigation takes us to II Corinthians 6:14 and the question of being “Unequally Yoked”. The final message, in this series, on March 25, will be “Who Is Worse Than An Unbeliever?” (I Timothy 5:8). I invite you to join us for these 6:00 PM services each week. (Communion is available.)

We had set the

dates of May 28-June 1 as the time we might attend Senior Saints In The Smokies. For those not familiar with this activity, I describe it as summer camp for those age 55 and up. At this point, I need to know if there are those interested in attending, so that plans can be made. (We did not attend last year.) If you are interested, please let me hear from you!


GIANT PRINT BIBLES: I still have a few of the GIANT PRINT Bibles. They sell for just $12.50 each. You may purchase one by contacting me or stopping by the church office. If you want to pay by check, make the check payable to me.











We welcome to the church family Wauneta Barnes, 330 Trace Drive, Apt. 113, Lancaster, OH 43130, who placed her membership at Fifth Avenue at the evening service on Sunday, March 4 th .

Sermon Notes

How Can I respond today?

At FACC we look to the Bible for guidance on all issues. We believe that God’s Word is clear concerning what a person must do to become a Christian.

Trust that Jesus can bring you to salvation.

Turn (repent) from the sin in your life.

Confess your desire to make Jesus the Lord of your life.

Be baptized (immersed) in water for the forgiveness of sins and to receive the Holy Spirit into your life. To make this life decision for Christ, we ask that you come forward during our commitment song at the conclusion of the Sunday message. Baptized believers are welcome to become members at FACC by coming forward on Sunday morning or by seeing our Senior Minister to discuss this further. We ask that you complete a series of Curious classes to help you better understand what you are committing to as a member.

Core Values

Values central to the life, mission and vision of Fifth Avenue Church of Christ are:

Christ-Centered Worship

We make it a priority every Sunday to celebrate Jesus through our music. (Romans 11:36-12:1-2). We focus on Jesus through grace-based preaching and teaching & understand the Bible is our authority (2 Timothy 3:16).

Church Health and Biblical Balance

Church health becomes reality when God's people seek harmony & live consistently. We expect every member to protect the unity of Christ's Church. (Romans 12:16; 1 Peter 3:8)

Global Evangelism

We are constant to our founding call to worldwide evangelism, proclaiming to all that Jesus Christ is the Savior, Healer, and Soon-Coming King (Acts 20:27).

Fellowship and Ministry

After people begin their journey with Jesus, we will equip them to find a ministry based upon their strengths. We want everyone to serve in some capacity. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) We also want His church to be the living evidence of His love and power to the world.


We do not want you to "get religion" here at Fifth Avenue Church of Christ in Lancaster. We are all about teaching you that Jesus seeks a daily relationship with Him through a life of obedience. In other words, we want to see the things you are taught actually change your lifestyle & your daily decisions.

Social Conscience

We place high value on the sanctity of human life, of Biblical marriage and morality, and we welcome ethnic diversity (Isaiah 56:7; Philippians 2:15-16).



Exalt God’s Greatness;

Evangelize God’s Work

Equip God’s People

Express God’s Love through Jesus Christ


“To Love God and Love People!”
