A note to our congregation…

Glen’s departure has happened much faster than we had anticipated. This will be a challenging time for them as well as for our church family. Please keep everyone in your prayers. Now more than ever we need to work together and we need adults to volunteer to assist with all current ministries we offer! Our biggest staffing challenge appears to be in our Sunday morning Hosanna ministry.

After much prayer and thoughtful consideration, the Elders and I have evaluated what our biggest needs are at the Fifth Avenue Church of Christ. It is our desire to hire two individuals who will serve this congregation on a part-time basis. We are seeking to hire a part-time Children’s Minister and a part-time Worship and Outreach Minister. As for our teen ministry, we plan to fill this void with a volunteer staff. We will keep you up to date with our hiring process as it unfolds. Again, we thank you for praying that God will lead us as we seek to better reach the community of Lancaster for Christ.

In His Service, Brad Seevers

BITS FROM BRO. DAVE

KEENAGERS RETREAT:

retreat will be held at Round Lake on Tuesday, April

10. This year’s featured speaker is Mark Taylor, the

Editor of Christian Standard. The registration fee of

$26 includes a continental breakfast, lunch and supper.

I am suggesting $3 per person for travel. Our

departure will be at 7 AM. A sign-up sheet is posted

and you will find registration forms posted as well. Complete the registration form and return it to me along with your fee. (Checks may be made to “Round Lake Christian Camp”.) I must know, by April 4, how many are going.

This annual “one day”

WEDNESDAYS:

groups will resume on April 4. We will, either, be having a final lesson on the “Inter-Testament Period”,

Our 10:00 am and 6:30 pm study

or will launch a study on II and III John.

SUNDAY EVENINGS IN THE SANCTUARY: This week, we will be having a “Mystery Speaker”. Next Sunday evening, April 8, we will be returning to the series on “The Hard Sayings of Paul”. The theme, at that time, will be “Who Is Worse Than An Unbeliever?” The text is found in I Timothy 5:8. The following week, April 15, the theme is “All Things For Good” (Romans 8:25). I invite you to join us for these 6:00 PM services each week. (Communion is available.)

SENIOR SAINTS IN THE SMOKIES:

through June 1 is the date we have reserved for attending this gathering in Knoxville, Tenn. This is a great event, designed for those 55 and older. I have registration brochures available. I do need to know, as soon as possible, if there are those interested in attending. Please let me hear from you.

At FACC we look to the Bible for guidance on

We believe that God’s Word is clear

concerning what a person must do to become a Christian.

all issues.

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.

Discipleship

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).

OUR PURPOSE WE EXIST TO …

Exalt God’s Greatness;

Evangelize God’s Work

Equip God’s People

Express God’s Love through Jesus Christ

OUR MISSION

“To Love God and Love People!”
