When: Fridays @ 6pm
What: A group look at Philippians, prayer, and fellowship
Description: In this time of distancing, we need to gather together as we can to share in the truth of God's word, care for one another, bear each other's burdens, and fellowship together in the name of Christ. Join us as we meet together every Friday to build one another up in the Lord, and renew us to faithfully continue despite the distractions around us. God bless you, and may all glory be given to Him.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 NASB

It is exciting to see so many of our FBC family getting involved in the ministry at the Coffee Oasis. For those that do not know, the Coffee Oasis is a christian ministry that serves homeless teenagers. They operate centers in Port Orchard, Bremerton, Poulsbo and Kingston.
Several FBC families are providing hot meals for the teenagers on Tuesday afternoons. In addition, many of you have provided money for Christmas presents for these teens and others have provided quilts. You truly are fulfilling the spirit of Matthew 25: 35-36.
Some have expressed the desire to donate new or lightly used clothing. In talking to the manager of the Port Orchard center, Jacob Wischoff, noted there are some items that are needed more than others. Here is what he listed as the greatest needs:
- Sleeping bags
- Young adult jeans for men & women
- Razors & shaving cream
- Leather belts
- (new) Men and women modest underwear
thank you for your generosity

The Coffee Oasis Ministry
“There was a time when no one was there for me, no one around to help me. The coffee Oasis has been a really big family for me.”- Jesse
Many of our FBCPO members have gotten been supporting the Coffee Oasis ministry. Some may ask, “What is Coffee Oasis?” It is a local faith-based organization that focuses on “Changing the world for homeless youth.” It serves anyone (13-25) at risk of becoming homeless due to:
Adverse living situation
Adverse childhood experiences
Note: If you want to take a donation directly to the Coffee Oasis be sure to contact Jim about the hours and location.
