Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
We want to thank everyone who prayed for us during Hurricane Florence. No family in the church suffered any major losses, and the while the church building itself needs some repair, God has been good. We are still able to hold services in the sanctuary. There were some shingles lost from the front building, and the back building had some water leaks, but overall, Faith Baptist Church got through the hurricane in good shape. Please continue to pray, and we will update everyone as we can.
Pastor Gibbs teaches our adult Sunday School class, and he does a wonderful job. Each week, we go verse by verse through a chapter in God's Word, and many lively discussions ensue.
We will resume posting the Sunday School lessons at the earliest opportunity. Various challenges have kept us from being able to post over the last couple of months. Please forgive the lapse.
We have special bibles for truck drivers! If you know of someone who has need of this special ministry, please let us know.
We have been blessed to have a new ministry added to our church, New Hanover House of Wilmington, an assisted living facility that has about 90 residents, 32 of which have been saved in the past 6 months! Praise the Lord for new opportunities! Please pray for this ministry.
