The following letter was given to all Freshwater Church members and attenders following worship on Sunday, September 2nd.
Today marks an important moment in the life of Freshwater Church. Today we move out of the facility that we have called home for the past six and one half years, and we step out into a future that is initially marked by a time of transition but we believe ultimately will result in seeing our mission to glorify God through advancing the Gospel move forward in tremendous ways. I realize that for many today is one of those bittersweet days because we look to our past and our hearts are filled with joy at all that the Lord has done here among us, and we also look to the future with expectant hope and some real questions. Please know that if I, or any of our elders, can minister to you in any way that we definitely want to do that for you; please let us know how we can serve you and your family.
Beginning next Sunday, September 9th, our church will gather for weekly corporate worship at The Esquire Theater in downtown Bolivar from 5:00 – 6:30 PM. The Esquire is owned by FBC Bolivar and is located on Chestnut Street, next door to Ozark Offset Printing, one block north of 3G’s Frozen Custard on the square. There is ample parking located to the side and behind the theater building.
During our time at The Esquire we will provide weekly Pre-k childcare during our service times. Childcare will be located in the FBC main building. Attached to this letter you will find a map that shows the most convenient drop-off location, the closest doors to use, and which rooms our children will be in. You can take your child to their Pre-k room starting at 4:45 each week. We will continue to staff our Pre-k childcare from within our own congregation; if you are interested in serving in the Pre-k rotation please let Amber Tucker or myself know and we can put you into the rotation.
Freshwater Church I love you very much and I believe that the Lord has great things in store for us in the days to come. Transition can be difficult and it is important that we take extra time and attention to love one another well, serve one another, fight for one another, and pray for one another. I believe that together we can see the Lord work in us and through us powerfully even while we are experiencing transition.
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
