Coming October 3rd, we will enjoy a
night of laughter as we watch a new
dvd from Christian Comedian Tim
Hawkins. You wont want to miss this.
We will make popcorn and have drinks
so all you need to do is show up. Why
not bring a friend? We will start at 7
p.m. This event is for our entire
church family.


THOUGHTS FROM BRAD
I want to encourage everyone to join us this Friday
night for a great time of laughter. I guarantee Tim
Hawkins will tickle your funny bone or well give
you your money back. Oh wait, its a free event.
Anyway, we hope you come join us at 7 p.m. We
will provide the popcorn and drinks. While you are
at it, why not invite a friend who has been going
through a rough patch. Laughter is great medicine.

If you currently do not have a class during our
Adult Bible Fellowship on Sunday morning, you are
welcome to attend my new study on the Book of
Ecclesiastes. We start at 9:15 a.m.

Today we are in week three of our BOLD sermon
series. Prepare to be challenged to be Bold in your
Speech. Maybe I should clarify that! Ill be sure to
do that during this mornings message.

We have been beating a drum around here for a
while now about the need for members to see
themselves as ministry partners. Membership has
a sound of what are you going to do for me next.
Instead we want you to use your God given gift to
bless others. How do your see yourself serving here
at Fifth? Everyone can do something! Give me a
call. Im sure we can find a place for you to serve
in the near future. Can we depend on you, to
depend on God, to help you serve in some new
way? I sure hope so!

Let me remind all those who oversee ministries at
the church that you will need to turn in budget
requests very soon. If you have not already
thought through your plans for 2015, please do so
immediately. As we always seek to be good
stewards, please consider ways of trimming excess
from your ministry budget.

Final thought: He that cannot forgive others
breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself;
for every man has need to be forgiven.

In His Service,
Brad
BITS FROM BRO. DAVE

KEENAGERS IN OCTOBER: Thursday,
October 16, is the date for our trip to
Amish Country and the David Warther
Museum. David Warther is a skilled
craftsman following in the footsteps of his
very talented father and grandfather.
Davids specialty is the carving of
miniature ships, from ancient to more
modern. A feature article, on his work,
appeared in the September 14 issue of
Country Living. After our museum tour,
we will have lunch at the Dutch Valley
Restaurant and visit our favorite cheese
shops in the afternoon. The cost, for travel
and museum admission will be $15 per
person. We will depart at 7:30 am and
return in late afternoon. A sign-up sheet is
posted. Payment is due at signup.

MIDWEEK BIBLE STUDIES: Each
Wednesday, our morning group meets at
10:00 am and the evening session is at
6:30. I invite any who are interested to join
us for our current Brief Survey Of Old
Testament History. Study outlines are
available. It is not too late to join either of
the groups. (This week we continued our
examination of the creation and the flood.)

FUTURE EVENTS: In November, I am
encouraging all of our seniors to
participate in our churchs annual
Thanksgiving dinner, on November 16.
Our friend, Tom Shelton, will be providing
entertainment. On December 11, we are
planning a special catered lunch for our
Keenagers and friends.

FINAL THOUGHT: To handle yourself,
use your head; to handle others, use your
heart.

CRAFT CORNER
Saturday, October 4
th
~ 9-noon

Delores Payne will be teaching a class on how
to make a crocheted or knitted sky cap.
Anyone interested in participating in this project
will need to bring 1 skein of Red Heart
variegated worsted weight yarn, a size 6 14-
inch knitting needle or a size G or H crochet
hook, and a yarn needle to sew a seam. The
sky cap is a simple tube shape with a bit of
decrease at the crown. The variegated color
makes a very interesting pattern.

If you do not wish to make the sky cap, please
bring any craft you are already working on and
spend the morning in fellowship with other
crafters!

Core Values...

Values central to the life, mission and
vision of Fifth Avenue Church of Christ are:

Christ-Centered Worship
We make it a priority every Sunday to celebrate Jesus through our
music. (Romans 11:36-12:1-2). We focus on Jesus through grace-
based preaching and teaching & understand the Bible is our
authority (2 Timothy 3:16).

Church Health and Biblical Balance
Church health becomes reality when God's people seek harmony &
live consistently. We expect every member to protect the unity
of Christ's Church. (Romans 12:16; 1 Peter 3:8)

Global Evangelism
We are constant to our founding call to worldwide evangelism,
proclaiming to all that Jesus Christ is the Savior, Healer, and Soon-
Coming King (Acts 20:27).

Fellowship and Ministry
After people begin their journey with Jesus, we will equip them to
find a ministry based upon their strengths. We want everyone to
serve in some capacity. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) We also want His
church to be the living evidence of His love and power to the world.

Discipleship
We do not want you to "get religion" here at Fifth Avenue Church of
Christ in Lancaster. We are all about teaching you that Jesus seeks
a daily relationship with Him through a life of obedience. In other
words, we want to see the things you are taught actually change
your lifestyle & your daily decisions.

Social Conscience
We place high value on the sanctity of human life, of Biblical
marriage and morality, and we welcome ethnic diversity (Isaiah
56:7; Philippians 2:15-16).

How Can I Respond Today?
At FACC we look to the Bible for guidance on all
issues. We believe that Gods Word is clear
concerning what a person must do to become a
Christian.
Trust that Jesus can bring you to salvation.
Turn (repent) from the sin in your life.
Confess your desire to make Jesus the Lord
of your life.
Be baptized (immersed) in water for the
forgiveness of sins and to receive the Holy
Spirit into your life.
To make this life decision for Christ, we ask that you
come forward during our commitment song at the
conclusion of the Sunday message. Baptized believers
are welcome to become members at FACC by coming
forward on Sunday morning or by seeing our Senior
Minister to discuss this further. We ask that you
complete a series of Curious classes to help you
better understand what you are committing to as a
member. If you would like to take a Curious class,
please indicate this on your Silent Roll Call Card.

Surprising Stores - 3 Fun-to-Read-Aloud Stories with a Message is a
book for young elementary readers. Three surprising stories show
children and adult that Gods surprises are often the best things in life!
Dear Chris, Dear Sam by Mikal Keefer is a story about two pen pals
that both like basketball and both hate spelling words. Then Chris
visits Sams school and hes surprised to find out how different they
really are. Can they still be friends? Maxs Answer by Clare Mishica
is a story about a boy who, more than anything, wants a dog. But he
cant have one because they make his little brother sneeze! Max prays
to God about his problem and the surprising answer he gets is better
than he could have imagined! A Family for Casey by Cindy Rogers is
a story about a boy and his mom who love it when relatives come to
visit in the summer, but Casey wants lots of family around every day.
With Gods help, Casey finds exactly what he is looking for!

Christy is a beloved national best seller from Americas most
inspirational author, Catherine Marshall. At nineteen, Christy
Huddleston left her comfortable home in North Carolina to teach
school in the Great Smoky Mountains led by a desire to help the
mountain people. Upon her arrival at Cutter Gap, Christy is struck
by the poverty and squalor the residents are mired in. She has never
experienced such destitution and ignorance. Determined to make a
difference in their lives, she refuses to give up. Yet Christys faith
is constantly tested. From her earliest and most trying days as the
sole teacher of 67 unruly children to the discovery of a secret
distilling business and the violence that follows, life in Cutter Gap
is anything but dull. But Christys spirit prevails. She comes to
know and care for the people of Cutter Gap, with their fierce pride,
dark superstitions, and yearning for beauty and truth. Fairlight
Spencer, so bright, lovely and full of life, Ruby Mae Morrison, a
chatterbox with a shock of unruly red hair, Little Burl, with his
blonde cowlick and ardent affection for teacher. With each new
day, Christy comes closer to understanding the mountain people.
She also discovers what it means to love and be loved, as she is
faced with the needs of two remarkable young men and
challenged by a heart torn between desire and love.
