A message from our Pastor

July 24, 2020
We finally wrapped up the book of Mark and we are starting another expository book study in Jonah this Sunday.  Click for a 31-day reading guide that will help you read through the book of Jonah and other biblical texts related to it. 
We are continuing to see guests attend our services and we are thankful for all who are able to attend.  We are aware of some technical difficulties with sound when watching the service on Facebook.  If you are having trouble with volume on Facebook, then try watching the service on the FBC Murphy Youtube Channel.
We have 2 big events in the upcoming weeks that I want to encourage you to be engaged with.
Promise KeepersJuly 31-August 1 is an event for guys. Our church will be a host for
this free simulcast event. Plan to invite a family member, friend, neighbor, or co-worker
to attend with you and register at the link above.
EQUIP ConferenceSaturday, August 8 is an event sponsored by the Southern Baptist
of Texas Convention that will offer all kinds seminar options to equip you in your area of
ministry.  Check out all the options and then register at the link above. Make sure to

We will finally have a quarterly business meeting on Sunday evening, August 9 at 5pm at the church.  Here are the agenda items for that meeting: Approve previous minutes, Emergency fund update, Financials, Sign update, Building and Grounds AC recommendation, Audio/visual upgrades, Pastor’s priorities.
Here are the handouts that went along with last week’s message.
We are slowly seeing more and more people trickle into our worship services.  I encourage you to know your health risks and make a wise decision.  We are trying to provide a safe environment for everyone to worship in person each Sunday. We look forward to seeing you in person or joining us online for a time of worship and preaching as we Magnify Christ, Multiply Disciples, and Mobilize Missionaries.
