What are all the flags about?  One of our traditions as a congregation is to celebrate this season of each year through a Missions Offering, making gifts that are over and above our regular tithes and offerings.  Six annual offerings from six of our ongoing mission partners are listed on the special green and blue envelopes you’ll find before you as you worship.

What a wonderful turnout for the Strategic Planning “Progress and Plans” presentation last Sunday evening!  I am deeply appreciative of all who participated—we’re partners in ministry as we pursue God’s purpose for First Baptist Plano together.

It is so good to be home with you for worship and ministry today!  “Walking in the Footsteps of Peter, Paul, and Mark” over the last two weeks was a wonderful experience.  It always seems to put the Scriptures and the Spirit-inspired writers in three dimensions, moving them from black and white to full HD color!  Being in Italy was a blessing; being home is better still.  God bless America!

What a wonderful day of worship last Lord’s Day!  I’m so glad the Lord led Steven Braucht and First Baptist Plano together.  Let me encourage you to pray for Steven and Melanie and Lexi and Lily as they begin the transition:  Make room in your hearts for them!
