I Am FBC - The Jennings

IMG_0872.JPG

Josh and Jamie Jennings became a part of the FBC Family in 2018 after both coming to faith in Christ! Being baptized shortly thereafter, the Jennings walk of faith has become real and personal.

“No doubt the Lord led us here, because FBC Salado feels like family,” said the Jennings. “We love our Sunday School class with Glenn Hodge, who has also been such a great friend to us.”

As the Jenning’s walk with the Lord has grown’ so has their involvement. Their oldest daughter is involved in Bible Drill, middle daughter enthusiastic about (Wed night) Kingdom Kids and Sunday School, and youngest (13 mos) “keeps us all on our toes!” says mom.

In addition to becoming regular Wednesday PM participants, Josh and Jamie both assist in the 3 & 4 year old Sunday School class, while Jamie has been serving on FBC’s ReEnvision Team.

Welcome Rev. John Singleton!

image001.jpg

What a treat for us to have our British Pastor-Partner and friend, Rev. John Singleton with us this month during our Pastor’s sabbatical! John will be speaking on Sunday mornings during July, leading a couple of our Wednesday adult Bible studies, and sharing with our church in several capacities.

Many of you know him, but some of you don’t. John earned a business degree in college, then went on to spend 17 years with IBM before following God’s call into ministry. He pastored churches in the south and central part of England, then served as Regional Minister (DOM) for the Northern Baptist Association, an affiliation of some 50+ churches across northeast England (where our FBC teams have served.)  Most recently, John has served as Interim Pastor for several Baptist Churches. Most notably however, John has been married for 53 years this November to his wife Enid!  They have 3 grown children and several grandchildren.

When we hear and interact with people from other countries we’re often alerted to our differences. And yet as Christians our calling is to something higher – God’s ‘sameness’ perspective. 

The Bible says, “How true it is, that God does not show favoritism but accepts people from every nation who fear Him and do what is right.” (Acts 10:34–35)

That means whether you live here or “across the Pond” (as the English like to say) God’s purpose is the same. Welcome our brother back this Month as you enjoy the fellowship and inspiring insight of a truly-committed (British) Christian!

The Border Crisis

image002.jpg

The border crisis continues to dominate our news, and the purpose here is not to debate the divisive issue of illegal immigration.  Rather, the purpose is to invite us as Christians to respond practically and personally to this crisis.

An objective and biblical source – the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) headed by the president of the National Association of Evangelicals and the president of World Vision US, and supported by prominent pastors including Matt Chandler, Tony Evans, Jack Graham, Max Lucado, and Southern Baptist Convention president J. D. Greear – the EIT website has listed “ways to support ministry to migrants along the U.S.–Mexico border.”  Take a look and see where God might lead you.

Does God care about this humanitarian crisis?  Do we even need to ponder that?  Author & Theologian Jim Denison said in response to the crisis: “There are ways every Christian and church can help. We can give. We can look for ways to minister to children at risk where we live. And we can all pray.”

1.      Pray that churches in key border towns will rise up and respond

2.      Pray that God’s Hand will empower those in leadership with effective plans

3.      Pray for those seeking true asylum to find it physically and spiritually

You may use these Scriptures to aid in your intercession –

But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the Body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” (1 Cor 12:24–27, NIV)

The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well … This is the way our Savior God wants us to live. He wants not only us but everyone saved, everyone to get to know the Truth we’ve learned.” (1 Tim 2:1–4, MSG)

Then little children were brought to Jesus for Him to place His hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me (*physically and spiritually) and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matt 19:13–14, NIV)

 

The Pastor's Perspective - July

And so, we’re off…

Pastor Perspcetive July Photo.jpg

In God’s timing, following some incredible moments in the life of our church during the past 6 weeks (including some 9 salvation decisions coming out of Vacation Bible School!) I have been granted sabbatical leave for a remaining portion of the Summer. My family and I will be away renewing ourselves spiritually, mentally, and physically; however, my Pastoral staff will be available for you, along with some other trusted Leaders and friends

As part of my 10 year anniversary with FBC, our Personnel Team granted me an upcoming sabbatical starting in July. So, when you come to worship service on Sunday July 7, a different but familiar face and voice will be present. Our British pastor partner, Rev John Singleton from England is coming over and serve as my Pulpit Supply while I am away. He and wife Enid will stay in our home, and John’s Messages will no doubt inspire your heart and challenge your faith. His presence will give our Church a familiar face (and of course, interesting voice~!) on the Sundays while I am away. I know you will extend a great big Texas welcome to him!

The first part of my sabbatical leave will be spent serving in the Pacific with our Army-chaplain friend and former church member – Lt. Col. Pete Keough. Pete has invited me to come out and assist him with some Chaplain training and ministry readiness programs, and we look forward to reconnecting with the Keoughs at the Pacific Command Training Center in Ft. Shafter, HI.

A second part of my sabbatical leave will be spent in personal study and reflection, where I will not teach, lead, or create anything connected to church services or ministry expectations. During these times I will reflect at a deep level on my faith; read without thinking about how I can use the material in a message; love God just to love Him; listen just to hear from Him, and revisit the simple reasons why I gave my life to Him and answered His call into vocational ministry.

A final important part of my sabbatical leave will be dedicated to renewing relationships with my family as we refresh our hearts and affections for each other. My wife comes from a military family, which in some ways can be compared to a ministry family: extended time apart, on-duty expectations, and absence during holidays. During this time, we will reconnect with some former military family friends in Makawao, HI, and concentrate on our family time together. We look forward to the joy of being able to attend a worship service as a family without pressure or program. “Dad, can we mess up your hair?” is what my kids often ask inquisitively, for it signifies that dad is home, relaxed, and all theirs. We look forward to these days.

The term “sabbatical” is Biblically based and comes from an Old Testament Hebrew word “shabbath,” which literally means “to cease or rest.” The idea is first mentioned in Genesis 2:2, where it states that, “On the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested”; then you find the concept onward throughout the Old Testament. Many years ago our Personnel Team put a policy in place that models this biblical principle:

“The purpose of the sabbatical emphasis is to strengthen FBC Salado by providing opportunities for our pastors and ministerial staff to step away for a time from the persistent obligations of a constant ministry life, and to engage in periods of renewal and reflection. Sabbaticals or extended leave periods are not simply vacations, but a time for intentional recharging, regaining enthusiasm and creativity for ministry, and reconnecting with the Lord and family. Every pastoral staff member serves in a variety of roles, and when duty calls, they answer. The responsibilities, pace, and demands are far reaching, even into their home life. Thus FBC has deliberately put a Sabbatical or extended leave requirement in place with the aim of replenishing their spiritual, emotional, and physical reservoirs in order to benefit the church and God’s Kingdom.”

I want to thank you for the gift of this absence, for supporting me and my family in prayer while we are away, and for remaining faithful to the Body at FBC Salado. See you soon!

Go love, Church!

- Pastor Travis

Youth - Fuge Camp Recap

2019-restored_footer-01-1.jpg

In June, more than 50 youth and 8 adult sponsors traveled to participate in Centrifuge Camp at Panama City Beach, Florida. Loading into FBC’s new people-mover and a charter bus, they group made the 14 hour trek to the white sands of Florida.

Upon arrival, students gathered on a sand dune and all worshiped as a group on the beach that evening. Doug Uyechi and Isabelle Smith led the group in singing, while Pastor Travis then shared a special message about being focused to hear what God was speaking.

A typical ‘Fuge day consisted of breakfast, followed by small group bible study, and then some seriously crazy group-oriented recreation. Many churches from all over the nation attended and youth were split up into groups with other churches. In the evenings after dinner, there were powerful worship services led by a Camp Pastor (Eric) and the ‘Fuge Camp praise band. After worship, students gathered into their church groups for a time of devotional reflection and discussion. Adult leaders Frank Wallace, David Reaves, Doug Uyechi and Izzy Lopez led devotionals based on themes from the day. Then the youth split up into smaller groups to discuss application of these themes in a practical way.

New friendships were forged and many youth even got to relate to our staff members in new and different ways. In the end, our students arrived home weary but refreshed from their life-changing experience at camp. Many thanks to everyone who supported this endeavor financially and prayerfully! Click below for some highlights of the camp experience…

Pre-Teens - Camp at Highland Lakes Recap

IMG_7070.JPG

26 Pre-teens and 6 adult leaders went to Highland Lakes to participate in Pre-Teen Camp. The theme was “light” and centered around John 8:12.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”.

The days were very busy. Breakfast was followed by “Jesus and Me” quiet devotional time where the kids learned to spend a quiet time alone with Jesus. “Morning blast off” was a high energy worship and message to set their hearts and minds in the right direction. Then, they went to “tabernacle” for Bible Study and scripture memory with activities teaching them how to “Get the light” and “Shine the light”.

They had recreation in the afternoon with swimming, water obstacle courses, boating and banana boat rides. After dinner they would have evening worship followed by church group time where they would reflect on the things they had learned from the day. 2 pre-teens made decisions for Christ during camp.

It was a fantastic time of connection for the pre-teens and adults alike, and we are all looking forward to what God has planned for these pre-teens! Check out the video below for a glimpse of our pre-teens in action at camp.

VBS - “In The Wild”

In The Wild Red Logo.jpg

257 children attended our VBS last month. The theme was “In the Wild” and they learned about the attributes of Jesus. They played fun games, learned new songs and 9 children accepted Christ as their personal Savior! The kids also collected 1370 non -perishable food items to donate to local food pantry “Heart and Hands”. Check out the video below for a glimpse of what happened at VBS.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who worked to make the experience a memorable time! We look forward to next year. If you are interested in serving in our children’s ministry, call the church office or email us at kids@fbcsalado.org.

I Am FBC - The Goodman Family

Jason, Jamie, Jenna Kate and Jaxon Goodman

Jason, Jamie, Jenna Kate and Jaxon Goodman

Jason and Jaime Goodman have been a part of the FBC Salado family since 2018. They joined the church after, “Our small group/bible study amplified the sense of belonging and both our children shared their excitement for their new Sunday school groups,” said the Goodmans.

Having often visited friends over the years in the greater-Salado area and always enjoyed the community and the sense of home, when Jason had to relocate to Austin for work, he and Jaime knew they wanted to raise their family in a community much like their roots. Salado was it.

When the Goodmans visited FBC, “it didn’t take us long to have faith that God’s plan was in action,” they said.  “Our daughter jumped at the chance to join the children’s Bible Drill team and our son jumped into action finding many new friends.”  

Jaime has enjoyed helping out with the ongoing Children’s ministry, along with special events like Vacation Bible School. Jason has participated in many men’s ministry events, and is on the Reenvision Team who are working to craft a new vision and campus masterplan for FBC.

“We are blessed to be in Salado and to have been led to visit and join FBC!” say both Jason and Jaime. The Goodmans have one daughter and one son.

Celebrating our Children - FBC Kids Sunday Recap

57447331_2671489572923335_7029005423499804672_n.jpg

“But Jesus called for them, saying, “Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” - Luke 18:16

Sunday, May 5, our FBC Kids ministry took the lead in our worship service. They led us in worship, made announcements, greeted guests, prayed, and collected our tithes and offerings. Our children’s minister, Jayelyn Boynton, led a special lesson about “names,” and Pastor Travis gave a message about being “Undivided!”

FBC Kids are the church of tomorrow and we are thrilled with their leadership on this special Sunday!

There are many opportunities to serve in our Children’s ministry. If you have a heart for kids or are looking for a practical way to serve, contact Jayelyn Boynton or call the church office for more details.

The Pastor's Perspective

Re-envision 2019.jpg

So a couple of months back I mentioned that, “a Reenvision Team was being recruited and assembled to take on the task of creating a new Vision & Campus masterplan for our church,” and that “exciting things were in the works with continued updates coming regularly.” 

Well here you go with one of those ‘updates’ – this past Sunday evening at our April Church Conference the church unanimously affirmed the names of seven individuals who are to comprise that Reenvision Team!  Our Nominating Team was presented a pool of eighteen names in order to create a Team of seven to serve. Our staff and church leaders submitted name possibilities according to balanced demographic representation of our church:  male/female, old/young, longtime/newer church members, etc.  The names were thoroughly prayed over, and then contacted by the Nominating Team to see if the individuals were willing to serve.

Those who agreed have been given a job description and will be working closely with myself, our staff, & church leaders. They will have 3-4 meetings now, break for Summer, then resume meeting in September with hopes of having Presentations ready for the church in October. The purpose of this Reenvision Team will be to assist in developing a renewed vision and campus masterplan for FBC Salado with specific goals for each phase of development. The team’s task essentially will be to create a “roadmap” for the church – who we are going to be and what we are going to be about – in the next 5-7 years.

It’s a tricky task (creating something out of something you can’t see yet) so as these individuals have prayerfully agreed to serve, please begin lifting them up in prayer regularly, yourself.  And use this Word from Isaiah as the foundation of your prayer work: 

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” (Isaiah 42:16)

Spring is upon us (the wildflowers along the Interstate through Salado have been amazing!) and as the Seasons are changing new growth is happening both in and out of our church.  He is making us “alive together with Christ!” (Eph 2:5)  What part of your life needs His Hand at work?  And where might His Hand lead you to do the same for someone else?

Go love, Church!

I am FBC - The Holders

SKM_C55819042409510.jpg

Jim and Brenda Holder have been a part of the FBC Family since 2011. Having moved to Salado from Georgetown, they continued to work and attend church there but soon felt the need to be involved in their local community.

So they began visiting churches in the Salado area, and settled on FBC because, “It was the most like what we were accustomed to, and felt like home!” said the Holders.

We’re sure glad for FBC’s sake! Having started his own handyman business, Jim was asked to fill in temporarily at FBC in the vacant Facilities Supervisor position. Because of his giftedness, and God’s timing, it turned into a full-time role as Jim is now a permanent part of our FBC Salado Staff!

“The one thing we have learned is that the closer you are to the Lord the more He will put you to serve His people.” said Jim & Brenda. Jim is also a greeter on Sunday mornings and loves the interaction with people and guests. Brenda still works and ministers to her clients who are extended family in Georgetown, and has found her place of service at FBC as well.

“Eight years ago if you had told us that we would be in Salado, we would have said ‘no way’?! But the Lord always has a better plan.  Thank you, Jesus!”

Jim and Brenda have been married for 24 years, have 2 children and 3 grandchildren.

Parent/Child Dedication - May 12

parent child dedication.jpg

At FBC Salado, we believe that dedicating a child to the Lord is a community effort. Parent/Child dedications are where we affirm and support parents as they seek to “bring up a child in the way they should go...”. We reserve a place in our worship service to recognize these families and pledge, as a church community, to come alongside them and support them. Our next Parent/Child dedication will be Sunday, May 12.

Sunday, March 31 – Cyber Safety!

District Commander Candice Reyes, Killeen Police Dept

Detective Amanda Holtzclaw, Killeen Police Dept

hacking-detected-shutterstock_188832089.jpg

 Hey, here’s an idea:  Let’s let our children drive on the Interstate even without a driver’s license! What, you don’t like that idea?? Yet we allow our kids to get on the Information Superhighway everyday unsupervised, unguided, and untaught – with dangers there just as life-threatening.

In fact, research says that the percentage of children age 3-18 who’ve gotten on the internet unsupervised has gone up from 19% to a whopping 86% in the past 20 years.

 Enter:  Cyber Safety – the safe and responsible use of information and communication technology. Not only is it about keeping your personal information safe and secure, but also about being responsible with that information, being respectful of other people online, and using good ‘netiquette’ (internet etiquette).  Understanding cyber-safety is all the more important when working with or caring for children. Whether you are a parent, teacher, caregiver or friend, the responsibility is yours to make your children smarter and more responsible with the technology they have access to. Come learn ways to help keep your children safe as they navigate the cyber world and what you should be aware of as one who oversees their entry into it.

District Commander Candice Reyes has been with the Killeen Police Department Patrol Division since 1999. Upon her completion of the field training program, she was assigned to the PM watch, where she worked in the downtown area of Killeen.  In 2007, she became a detective and was transferred to the Youth Service Section.  As a detective, she investigated all cases involving juveniles; however she specialized in sex crimes involving children.  In 2010, she was promoted to the rank of Sergeant where she supervised the Major Crime Section, which handled all murders, death investigations, sexual assaults, robberies, domestic violence, cold cases and sex offender cases.  In 2017, she was promoted to the rank of District Commander and was assigned to the Patrol Division  

Detective Amanda Holtzclaw has been at the Killeen Police Department Special Victims Unit since June 2009. Her main focus is child abuse and child sexual abuse. She recently worked on an intricate child pornography case with the Attorney General’s Office and has experience with teenagers and their use of the internet.

 “Convenience can be cheap, or it can be healthy, but it is almost never both.”

New York Times author KJ Dell'Antonia.

For families on-the-go, the reality is that our lightning-speed lifestyles are actually costing us in the long run as our health continues to get compromised. Truth is, if we want to have a healthy life and family, we have to do something about it – and can!

 It’s not just about what we’re eating. It’s about what we’re doing in those moments with food and time, however great or small. Talking. Laughing. Praying. Being Together. All of it can produce benefits if we go about it the right way. Imagine being able to quickly answer the “what’s for supper” question?! Imagine no more last minute grocery runs?! Imagine less wasted stuff in your pantry and fridge?! Imagine fixing food your family likes (quickly)?!  No, it’s not a dream. Hope and help are waiting on Aisle 2! Come and get it. Come and learn ways to feed your family’s hunger with healthy food, as well as feed their spirit with quality time.

Dr. Kelsey Kelso earned her medical degree at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, TX, and completed her OB/Gyn residency at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine. She is a staff member in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is board certified with the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Sunday, April 14 – Tips for Tough Talks

Brandi Carroll, Counselor, Killeen ISD

o-MOM-TALKING-TO-TEEN-facebook.jpg

 The people who said “parenting isn’t easy” – they weren’t kidding?!   And probably one of the most difficult things for all parents is having the “tough conversations” with their kids. You know the ones –sex, substances, body image, bullying, lifestyles, and more. Today, we live in a complex world that is filled with issues that are not only difficult for kids to process, but also difficult for parents to discuss. Many parents dread having these conversations with their kids, while others want to but don’t know how.

 Reality check – if you don’t talk to your kids about these issues, someone else will. And you will have missed out on a crucial opportunity to give your children accurate information, personal values, and lifelong principles to guide them. Save yourself a lot of stress by getting ahead of the topics before they come up. And arm yourself with go-to advice for when those sensitive subjects do arise. By investing knowledge, compassion, and strong character into your kids, you can give them all the tools they need to navigate life successfully! Come learn ways to talk through life’s challenging subjects with your children in ways that will encourage, equip and strengthen both them and you.

Brandi Carroll graduated from the University of Oklahoma and completed her Masters work through the University of Central Oklahoma. A classroom veteran she taught high school science for many years and has since served as a school counselor for more than 20 years. Among other ventures, Brandi has helped initiate an adventure-based character education program centered on an acronym GRIP with the letters representing good attitude, respect and responsibility, integrity and perseverance. Currently working in Killeen ISD, she has been married for 27 years and has two children, a 4th grader, and a 9th grader.

5 Years serving FBC Salado...!!

40076651_10217855739571630_807908022964715520_n.jpg

It was April 2014. The FBC Personnel Team decided to create an additional position titled “Staff Assistant” to help fulfill the ever increasing responsibilities of administration and communication within the church. The team finalized a new job description, prepared standard job applications, and began circulating the need.  After many conversations and multiple interviews the screening team made the unanimous recommendation to hire Ashley Unger to fill the new role.  

5 years later…we are sure glad they did!  A graduate of Howard Payne University and former business owner of “Finders-Keepers” on Main Street here in Salado, Ashley has been a perfect fit for the FBC Salado staff.  Working tirelessly with our Pastoral Staff on church programs, ministry needs, and various communication platforms (1st Light Newsletter, website, worship guide, announcement slides, et al) Ashley has brought a creative and professional spark unlike any other. In fact, she manages and helps produce so much behind the scenes that you probably wouldn’t even realize all she contributes to our church – and to the Kingdom.  In addition to her professional responsibilities Ashley has a steady love for Students – teaching Jr. High girls and participating in multiple mission trips, youth camps, and small group discipleship efforts.

Join us this month in celebrating, congratulating, and thanking this multi-talented staffer who has definitely been a “Finders-keeper” for FBC Salado!  On Sunday, April 7, in both worship services we will recognize Ashley for her accomplishments. Our Personnel Team has prepared several items of presentation, however please feel free to send Ashley a card or drop her an email or text of thanks.

Congratulations Ashley for 5 faithful years of service!!
