Sabbath 2018

Welcome to our Sabbath celebration!

For 40 days beginning July 1, we focus on God's gift of rest. Many of our small groups will not be meeting such as home groups and Bible studies, and we have several fun events to encourage your relationship with God and with others. You can find all the information about these events below.

First Fifteen

First things first, as the saying goes. Our relationship with the Lord is most important, and to help encourage your time with God, we are introducing "First Fifteen." It's simple way to spend at least 5 minutes in God's Word, 5 minutes in prayer, and 5 minutes in worship. You can read a Bible plan of your choosing, you can follow our Sabbath Devotional, or you can read the Psalms of Ascent reading plan which we'll have printed on the back of your bulletin each week.

eat together:
Share a meal

Community happens around food, so during the first week of Sabbath, we want to encourage you to share a meal with someone other than your family. It can be a neighbor, friends, or a co-worker. This is a simple, yet powerful way to foster your relationship with others.

fellowship together:
Family movie night
June 13 | 6:30pm

Freedom Kids is hosting another family movie night during Sabbath this year, and on July 13, we will be showing Ferdinand the Bull! Childcare for kids ages two and under will be provided, and we’ll have all kinds of snacks and games, so bring your families, and bring your friends as we fellowship together!

Have fun together:
landa park
july 18 | 6:30–8:30pm

This year we have reserved a spot in Landa Park so that as a church we can just have fun together! We will bring volleyballs and some fun things for kids, so all you need to bring is your dinner, and some chairs or a picnic blanket! Don’t worry, it’s in the shade so join us on July 18 from 6:30 to 8:30pm and let’s have fun together!

serve together:
All-church serve day
july 28 | 8:00am–12:00pm

Our celebration of Sabbath doesn’t mean “do nothing,” but rather “do something together.” That’s why we’re excited to have an all-church serve day on July 28 here at Freedom Fellowship. We have a number of projects around campus that we need help with.  Some of them are indoors and some will be outdoors, and there will be projects for all ages so bring your friends, bring your families and let’s serve God’s house together!

Worship together:
night of worship
august 1 | 7:00–8:30pm

We are so excited to have another night of worship here at Freedom Fellowship on August 1 from 7:00 to 8:30 p-m. We were so blessed to worship with all of you at our last worship night, and we really hope to see you at our next one. We’ll have special guests, Stephen and Heather Walker, joining us along with the Freedom Fellowship worship team. Be sure to mark your calendars for this amazing night of worshipping together.

give together:
darjeeling offering
august 12

On the last Sunday of our Sabbath, we will be collecting our second offering to support the Darjeeling Bible training center. Joyful, sacrificial giving is a great way to conclude our season of Sabbath so join us as we celebrate what the Lord is doing through us by giving together.

We are really looking forward to the coming weeks of celebrating God’s gift of rest with you. I hope you’ll take it all to heart and dig in to the good things God has for you.
