A Favorite Bible Verse – (from Brian Fox)
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling,
and to present you faultless before the presence
of his glory with exceeding joy. Jude 24
This verse shows to me the keeping power of Christ. It gives me great comfort to know that a day will come when Jesus will present me to the Father faultless, and with exceeding joy – what a picture!

Pray For:
FCS Staff & Students, our Deacon Ordination, our missionaries and our older members.
