all members are encourged to attend.

NORTHWEST IMPACT is an annual mission offering that extends and equips the partnership of Northwest Baptist Convention churches for the spiritual transformation of Oregon, Washington and north Idaho. Formally known as the Sylvia Wilson Mission Offering, the Northwest Impact theme seeks to multiply the cooperative mission efforts of about 500 Northwest Baptist churches through church planting, leadership development of pastors and ministry staff, Disaster Relief ministries that offer people help and hope in the midst of crisis, sharing Christ’s love with children through Vacation Bible Schools and other outreach projects, evangelism among special groups such as college students and helping churches make an impact in our neighborhoods and among the nations.

If you know of a person or family that needs a Bible, FBCPO has copies available for free.

Contact the office or they are located at the west end of the hall outside the auditorium.

The donation barrel for South Kitsap Helpline is still available in the hall.

Keep up the good work helping those in need in our community. 

With the recent outbreak at the hospital in Bremerton, it is clear COVID19 still exists in Kitsap County. We all need to protect each other. Recent changes from the governor regarding  safely meeting in our church requires the following:

 

Inform all employees, members, and guests that they must self-screen for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 before arriving at the location. • Request employees, members, and visitors to take their temperature before attending a service. Any individual with a temperature of 100.4°F will not be permitted to attend the service or attend work at the organization. • Any individual with a household member who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or with symptoms of COVID-19 (including a fever above 100.4°F) may not attend the service or attend work at the organization. 

 

If those attending, including staff, develops a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, DO NOT COME TO CHURCH. Instead call your healthcare provider right away, and the Church Office. Likewise, if you come into close contact with someone showing these symptoms, call your healthcare provider and Pastor or Church Office right away.

Coffee Oasis, is it a coffee shop or is it a ministry? Well, it's really both! It is a coffee shop that serves great coffee. But it is also a Christian ministry that provides a variety of services to homeless teenagers in Kitsap County. The coffee shop helps fund the ministry! Of course our heart is in supporting the teenagers that frequent the Oasis center located on Bay Street. Just so you know, the lounge is open weekday afternoons from 2-5PM. On Fridays they reopen in the evening to provide dinner and a program. What you can't see in the sign is the logo, "Real Coffee, Real Hope"

 

The centers are simply a safe place to hang out, get a bite to eat, participate in organized activities. Staff and volunteers are always engaging in conversation with a desire to help the youth move toward the future.

 

Several FBC members are helping by providing a meal on Tuesday afternoons for the teenagers. Would you like to be a part? Want more information? Contact Jim Riddell at the church, 360-876-2374 or office@fbcpo.org.
