Last Thursday morning we had a group of ladies come to the church to cook soup for FBC's senior citizens who cannot go out. Because of the generous donations from congregants, they were able to make several gallons. Thank you to those who gave food items and who worked on cooking the soup!

Habitat is constructing a new home on Harmony Street in Commerce GA! In addition to volunteers on site, they also need lunch sponsors. Lunch is served to the workers at the site. They prefer sandwiches, pizza or hamburgers. If an individual or group can sponsor a lunch, please call Stacey at 706-387-0242 to sign up.
This year for Winter Bible Study we will examine the Minor Prophets. The Minor Prophets, of course, are those who didn't hit well enough to make it to the majors (just a little joke)! The Minor Prophets are a group of twelve books recording prophecies from the 8th - 5th centuries BC. As such, they cover the time from before the fall of the Southern Kingdom of Judah, to the time after the return from the exile.
The term "Minor" actually refers to the length of books which are short when compared to the books of Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah (the Major Prophets). This will be a six week study. We will cover more than one book on most nights. We will focus on the identity of the prophet, the time in which he prophesied and the major theme(s) of his prophecy rather than going into a detailed study of the writings. I believe this will give us a better feel for this period in Israel's history. You may be surprised at the relevance of these writings for our time.
The study begins on Wednesday, February 5th as we examine the book of Hosea. The rest of the schedule, with a break for Ash Wednesday is as follows:
2/12 - Joel and Amos
2/19 - Obadiah and Jonah
2/26 - Ash Wednesday Service
3/4 - Micah
3/11 - Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah and Haggai
3/18 - Zechariah and Malachi
