As an alternative to Halloween, our church is planning a “Block Party” from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on October 31. Our new family pastor, Jonathan Phillips, is leading the Block Party. We look forward to Christian fellowship, fun & games, and of course treats and candy.
The Bible says that whatever we do, we should do all “to the glory of God!” That is our goal here at First Baptist Church of Cape Coral. Hopefully, we will see lots of friends and neighbors as we have our first “Block Party” here at 4117 Coronado Parkway in Cape Coral, FL.
We are praying for those in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, particularly our friends & neighbors in Texas and Louisiana. At times like this, it is good to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Our mission dollars are already at work through such agencies as the Southern Baptist Convention, which we support on a regular basis.
The SBC Disaster Relief trucks were the very first ones in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The FEMA director this week named the SBC as among the first-responders already on the ground in Texas.
So, already we have given, and we can now also give more. Anything given through First Baptist Church of Cape Coral should be designated “Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief,” and we will forward it to the appropriate SBC relief coordinators. Our local Royal Palm Baptist Association and our statewide Florida Baptist Convention are currently organizing relief teams to go to Texas to help. We can direct to them anyone who is available to help.
We are having a great summer here at First Baptist Church of Cape Coral. We are in the middle of a “Miracle Mortgage,” which will be complete by the end of the summer. Our attendance and offerings have held up very well through the summer. And we have launched into the spiritually rich New Testament book of Ephesians in our weekend worship services.
Jonathan Phillips is off to a great start as our new “Family Pastor.” We look forward to hearing him preach this summer for the first time here at First Baptist Cape Coral. Jonathan and his wife, Cheyenne, are fitting in very well. We are quickly growing to love and appreciate both of them.
Gerard Tricarico will kick off our fall Awana program with a “Gospel Magic” ministry in the main sanctuary on Wednesday, August 16, at 6:30 PM. Gerard is a member of our church. He has ministered here before. His ministry is outstanding!
Join us here at First Baptist as we exalt and lift up the name of Jesus Christ!
