Here is our Palm branch to celebrate Palm Sunday!
Hi All we wanted to invite our church family to join the youth as we celebrate Palm Sunday in spirit together!
The next verse, verse four continues, “In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust.” One thing that people are afraid of right now is running out of necessities. The evidence of that is the empty shelves in the grocery stores. But there is one thing that never runs out or falls short - God’s WORD. The Bible is full of God’s promises and there is one that answers whatever need you are feeling right now.

A Musical Christmas Celebration was held at First Baptist Church of Pinecastle Friday and Sunday evenings. The wonderful music was enjoyed by all: those who sang and those who listened. What a wonderful way to remember the birth of our Savior.

Mission: First Baptist Church of Pine Castle is a body of believers in Christ, voluntarily joined together under the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Our mission is to know Christ better and make Him known to others.

“Social distancing” is an expression that we never heard of before 2020. But today, it has become a commonly-used part of our vocabulary.

Social distancing is one of the responses to COVID 19, and its purpose it is to keep us safe. But it’s sort of like taking Cod Liver Oil. We know it’s helpful, but we don’t have to like it.

Social distancing has taken so much away from us that we hold dear. It has deprived us of hugs from grandchildren, outings to a favorite restaurant, and church activities where we meet with friends . Some of us have even had to cancel an entire “Dream-of-a Lifetime” vacation. Just about everything in life looks different right now.

When we look at the Social Distancing Ledger Sheet, it seems that it isn’t very well balanced. We have a lot of items listed in the column titled “Things We Have Lost.” The remarks under “Things We Have Gained” is quite a bit shorter.

But one Item we can put under the “Gains” list is big enough to compensate for a whole lot of remarks under the “Lost” list. I am referring to our relationship with God. As soon as church services were replaced with Facebook Livestream, it became apparent that we each had to become more responsible for maintaining our relationship with God. No one would “miss us” at church if we decided not to tune in that morning. So, we had to determine that we would “show up” on Facebook Live anyway.

Our busy lives prior to Covid 19 may have been the excuse we gave for not being as faithful about reading and studying the Bible as we should. But that excuse was taken away from us when we were told to stay home. Many Christian organizations valiantly rose to the occasion and started to offer free Bible Studies online. We could fill those empty hours listening to Christian speakers and studying worthwhile biblical materials.

The Bible offers encouraging words for those who seek God during difficult times like this. Here is one to read and think about.

Psalm 145:17-19
17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does.
18 The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.

If you have had some meaningful experiences during Covid 19 that have brought you closer to God, then be thankful. And if you can’t really claim that that has happened to you, there could be something still in store for you that will be an unexpected blessing.

The food pantry always needs cereal, peanut butter, pancake mix, syrup and canned meat. The food pantry is open on the 2nd Friday of each month. You can always bring these items with you to church to drop off anytime during the month. Thank you!

Thank you to Jim and Carol Dawson for updating our church sign each week with such great messages!

[07/08/20]   The food pantry will be open on Friday, July 10 from 9AM - 11AM or while supplies last.

Thank you to our wonderful ensemble this morning for leading us in singing some patriotic songs this morning! From left to right: Jim, Rodney, Sandy, Richard, Rick and Kathy! Great job singers!

The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, and published in a magazine called “The Youth’s Companion.” Since the pledge was intended to be quick and to the point, Bellamy designed it to be recited in 15 seconds!

The first organized recital of the pledge occurred in public schools on Columbus Day, 1892. President Harrison proclaimed that it should be part of the celebrations taking place on the 400th anniversary of the voyage of Christopher Columbus.

Various laws have affected the pledge since its beginning. In 1942, Congress formally recognized the pledge. Some changes in the wording have taken place, with the most important happening in 1954. In response to godless Soviet Communism, President Dwight Eisenhower advocated the addition of “under God” to the pledge. His intention was to reaffirm the importance of religious faith.

When we say the Pledge of Allegiance, we affirm our loyalty to the country in which we live. During this time of pandemic and unrest, let us fervently pray that our nation will return to the faith of our forefathers, and truly be “under God” in thought, word and deed.

Prayer Service 6\24\2020 Carol Dawson

Dear Father,
As we face these uncertain times in our nation and the world, we ask you, Lord, to dwell among us. We are comforted by the knowledge that You alone are our Savior and Lord, and the ultimate Master of life. We trust our nation to Your loving care, Lord. Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. Give us Your light and Your truth to guide us in our ways so that we may seek Your will in our lives and impact the world around us for Your Kingdom. In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen


[06/20/20]   Dear Church Family,

As many of you know Mayor Demings, in agreement with Mayor Dyer and other city/county officials, has issued a mandate stating that the use of a face mask is required when an individual is in a public setting. As a result of this mandate there may be some confusion as to what will be asked of you as you enter the church building this Sunday. We encourage, but will not require, each person in attendance to wear a mask, especially as you enter and leave the building. However, the mandate states that masks are not required when individuals are able to maintain a distance of six feet, so removing your mask once you have sat in your seat is perfectly acceptable. The church also has additional masks, which we will provide if you would like to wear one. As always, we understand that nothing ever is a one size fits all. Therefore, we encourage you to do what is best for you and your family, and we support you in the decision. We want to thank you all for your understanding in this matter.

God bless,
FBCPC Ministerial Staff
