Let’s celebrate!  The Care Ministry of our church continues to meet real needs in the lives of our members—year after year after year.  Equally important:  the Care Ministry of our church provides any member an opportunity to exercise their gifts of ministry.

I’m so glad you get to meet my friend today! Vince Smith is one of God’s choicest servants. Our friendship began when the Lord called Vince to serve as Director of Missions for our Collin Baptist Association. Vince’s love for the Lord—and for the Lord’s church—is readily apparent. He’s got a sweet family and enjoys seeing people come to know Jesus. I’m grateful to God for the friendships Dedi and I share with Kimberly and Vince. I’m grateful to Vince for preaching for me while Dedi and I are at her family reunion today.

One year ago, we celebrated the ministry of Ruby Noel—director of the FBC Plano church library—as she marked 50 years of leadership in that role. That record of servant leadership is so “remarkable” that we will mark it again this Sunday (pun intended!) as we express our profound gratitude to Sister Ruby, who has announced her “retirement” from the library ministry. What a record, what a resource, what a cause for rejoicing! I’m so proud to be Ruby’s pastor; I can’t imagine how proud James is to be her husband

Thank you for praying for our Minister of Music Search Committee! These dedicated folks represent a wide range of our church family and have given of themselves unselfishly over the past months. They have cast a wide net and are grateful for the names and ideas you have shared with them. They have prayed, studied, traveled, snuck around and observed, met and met and met, interviewed, discussed, and prayed some more. The desire of the committee is to seek the person God is leading to serve Him as Minister of Music here at FBC Plano in order to recommend that person to our congregation.

Today we celebrate what God has done in the lives of children and their families through Vacation Bible School! We are grateful to God for the leadership and service of Debbie Parker and her team of faithful workers who loved, taught, and cared for precious boys and girls this past week. The week was incredible!
