FIRST CONNECTIONS - January 20, 2017

First Baptist Church Shawnee

Be Disciples. Make Disciples.

Judge not and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back. Luke 6:37-38



Kids and Family Movie Night

FREE and everyone invited!

In Fellowship Hall at FBC

TONIGHT, January 20

Doors open at 6:30, movie starts at 7:00

We can't tell you the name of the movie, but it is about finding a female fish.

The church will provide popcorn and Capri-suns. You can bring anything you like to eat or drink (snacks or dinner) when watching the movie. Please do bring lawn chairs and/or sleeping bags/blankets to sit on.

 Kids 1-6 grade can attend without a parent; younger children need a parent with them.
