Let's say thanks!

Something cool that Xerox is doing

If you go to this web site, , you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!

This is a great site.

Please send a card.

It is FREE and it only takes a second.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them...

Christmas Music Wrap-Up 2006

We Recommend

Christmas Music Wrap-Up 2006
by Russ Breimeier
posted 10/30/06

It's remarkable how holiday traditions and creative artistry over the years have yielded so many different musical expressions for the Christmas season, and 2006 is no exception. There's acoustic pop from Third Day, R&B gospel from Mary Mary, varied pop from NewSong, Irish hymns from Moya Brennan, alternative folk from Sufjan Stevens, a cappella from Go Fish, soulful eclecticism from Israel & New Breed … and that's only half of the 14 projects represented in this year's Christmas Music Wrap-Up. Check out the diversity with which we can celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Developed in connection with the Worship Ministry of Central Christian Church in Las Vegas, has revolutionized our planning, distribution, and management of our worship here at FBC.

At a glance we can see who's involved. As we plan worship, music & mp3's are available to our team (even our tech crews are getting familiar with the music before Sunday!). We can schedule people and plan from anywhere. I would guess that within the next three months, our music prep time will be cut by 70%.

6,500 volunteers offer frame for misfortune

Drew Pierce, 5, copied a Bible verse -- "Do not withhold good from those who deserve it" -- as a message of Christian goodwill on one of the home frames assembled yesterday.

Tim Davis

Just got back from Saddleback's, "Purpose Driven Worship Conference." Can I just say this guy is awesome.

I didn't get to attend any of his workshops last year (they were all full!) but was blown away with his vocal talent. This year, I got to hear his heart which is even greater than his abilities.

Tim, may God bless you beyond belief and use you in ways you never expected.
