Ready for Sunday?

Last week I challenged you to make a daily list of three things for what you are grateful for the day.  Here are my three from yesterday.  Opportunity to visit with my brother about memories from our childhood.

What have I been up Continue reading →

A Note from Pastor Rick

It’s Friday but Sunday is coming! As we gather Sunday at FBC Oswego, I will be teaching on “Making the Most of Every Opportunity.” We will study Col 4:2-6, Ephe 5:15.

The dog –Hank–gave a good message! And there were lots of drawing prizes for kids and adults alike! Looking forward to worshipping with you tomorrow. There is a lot of brokenness in this world, parents/kids, divorces, business partnerships, nations against nations, what are we supposed to Continue reading →
