In Revelation 3:8, the Lord Jesus instructed John to give this message to the church in Philadelphia:

I have placed before you an open door . . ..

That invitation from the Lord Jesus has been extended to our congregation, as well!  These are days of incredible opportunity—open doors from Jesus for us to enter, to join Him in His work

Today, Sunday, May 18 is a day of opportunity!  Today we worship the Lord, study His word, plan, prepare, and fellowship together.  During the May Church Business meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the Great Hall, the following persons will be recommended to serve as the special Search Committee for Minister to Children:

                        Rick Sullins, chair

                        Stephen Davis

                        Karen McDonald

                        Julie Spitzenberger

                        Melanie Steenbergen

                        Daniela Tecuatl

These faithful church members represent parents and workers with various aspects of our ministry with preschoolers and children, the Week Day School committee, and the Personnel Committee.  If their nominations are affirmed, the members of this group will need our prayers they seek the Lord’s will together. 

Following the time of church business, we will enjoy a time of sharing testimonies of what God has been doing throughout our congregation.  Come and tell about His work through you in the lives of the 4xFour people the Lord has assigned to you.  Let us know how praying for your 100 closest neighbors has changed you, your perspective, and your vision for your neighborhood.

Wednesday, May 21 is a day of opportunity!  FBC Plano night at the RoughRiders baseball game in Frisco is your opportunity to bring your friends to connect with your church family.  Contact information to purchase your tickets (including “all you can eat” ballpark style) is available in this bulletin and on our website.

Next Sunday, May 25 is a day of opportunity!  “Morning at the Park” is an open door to show people outside the walls of the church buildings that we love Jesus and that He loves them.  We will worship Him and lift Him up so that He can draw men and women and boys and girls to Himself.  What a great opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, and family who are far from God to meet Him in a neutral setting.

Jesus is found as you step through the door He opens.  Will you?
