First Baptist Church of Pocasset

A Safe Harbor for You

September 24-30, 2017

Dear Friends,

This Sunday we are pleased to welcome Dr. David McCollough to preach at our morning worship celebration. David was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Growing up his family would travel with the melon harvest, making a yearly journey from Phoenix to southern California, then on up to the central California town of Turlock and then finally back to Phoenix. David graduated from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Texas (1994) and finished his Master of Divinity in 1997. He then spent nearly four years in Singapore teaching in a Bible college (1998-2001). He went on to live and work in Germany (2003-2007) and then finished his PhD in the U.K. at The London School of Theology (2015). David spent a year on the Cape as chaplain at The Chapel on the Pond in Truro (2015-2016). David is a man of God with a passion to see God's Word taught and preached. We will receive a love offering to bless David for his ministry.

On Tuesday nights we meet first to pray and then to study the Bible together. All are welcome to join us as we seek to know and do the Word and Will of God. The men are studying the Book of Acts and the women are studying the book of Nehemiah.

The Wednesday Morning Bible Study just completed their study on Discipleship and will be taking September off. They will begin their new study this Wednesday, October 4th , using the book Her Name Is Woman, Vol. 1 by Gien Karssen.

Sunday's Message -- Dr. David McCollough

David's message will be taken from 2 Corinthians 3:1-4:6. It is a long passage and I encourage you to read it during the week to prepare for the message on Sunday. His topic is "Keys to Prayer.” We use keys to unlock doors or to turn on engines, which are both needed in our day of increased security and travel. Unlocking the power of prayer is also needed today. Prayer is much more than bringing our wish list to God; it is participating in what God is doing on earth through our relationship with Him. Let's prepare to hear God's message on Sunday and use the keys He gives us.

This week we will focus our prayer for the village of Buzzards Bay. Pray for those who live in Buzzards Bay for God to draw them to Jesus. Let's believe Him for a move of the Holy Spirit!

The Glory of God Monthly Prayer meeting will be held at Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church, 3600 Main St. (Rt 6A), Brewster, MA on Wednesday, September 27th from 6:30 -- 8:00 PM. This is a special meeting with Dr. Paul Jehle, senior pastor of the New Testament Church, speaking on the Daniel Model: Intercession in Exile. Come and join with other believers in intercessory prayer for Cape Cod.

Missionary Visit -- On Sunday, October 1 Hector Newman, a missionary whom we support, will be sharing about what God is doing through their mission work in Honduras. Parts of Central and South America are experiencing revival as God is opening hearts to the gospel. We look forward to hearing testimonies of God's faithfulness.

Pray for One: Ask God to give you one person to pray for that they may come to faith in Jesus. Pray that God gives you an opportunity to share Jesus story with them.

Nursery on Sunday: Ruth Leech

Hosts for our next Fellowship Luncheon (Oct. 1): Diane and Haley Babcock

MISSION: The First Baptist Church of Pocasset exists to reveal the saving love of Jesus Christ as a Safe Harbor.

VISION: Through the ministry of our church and to fulfill the will of God for the Upper Cape, we believe that God will draw fifty people into His transforming love within the next two years. This will be accomplished through our ministry to the Recovery Community; through the active sharing of our faith in Christ by interacting with people in our lives; and, through mobilizing our church to pray for the harvest.

This is a church where you can come as you are. Real life. Real people. They are just trying to be like Jesus. If you are hurting and broken this is the place for you.

Bill Nicoson,
Visiting pastor
