This Sunday we will celebrate the 241st birthday of our nation. We will consider the subject, “All for One, One for All.” One of the sad realities of our nation is that we may be as divided as it has been in many years. It could be the 24/7 news cycle that demands controversy to fill the hours. It could be that the issues that divide us are more emotional than we have seen in previous years. Whatever the case, people who have been friends for years no longer communicate because of the dramatic mood shifts between people of differing political points of view.
Our church is blessed with people who take their citizenship seriously. Many of you gave of yourselves and your family members in service of this nation. Others have given of your time and talent to serve our city. I am proud of the way we have people who have different points of view who gather each Sunday for a higher calling, to worship the God of all Americans, indeed of all citizens of the world who acknowledge Him.
One of the new ways we are able to worship is through our Facebook Live page. If you are out of town, you can worship with us in both morning services by joining us on Facebook Live. We have had members travel throughout the USA and over seas who have participated in worship through this new opportunity. To join us you can log in to Facebook and like the church page or you can go to the church website, fbckpt.org, and click on the Facebook symbol, a small “f” in the box on the left side of the home page.
I look forward to sharing a memorable Sunday with you as we give thanks for the freedoms we share as Americans, and more importantly, as Christians.
