                      PASTOR'S  MONTHLY  NEWSLETTER ARTICLE
Vol. 9                                                                                                       Sept 2022 

Brothers and Sisters, as we go to press with the September newsletter, Labor Day and Summer’s end are right around the corner.  Soon the preschool meeting in our church; as well as our Seattle Public Schools will be back up and running.  In reference to these schools reopening, I want to thank you all for your August “outreach”, of bringing in “Back to School” supplies for Family Works food bank.

I’m sure Jan W. or Judie C. will fill us in on the level of monies and school supplies we gave them for their early “Back to School supply” drive. Please remember, as “all” the local schools return to teaching in early September.  These schools are “still” in dire need of Back-to-School Supplies for the kids and young adults.           

If possible, can you good people continue to bring in school supplies til say Sept 25th?  The last Sunday in September.  Any school supplies or monies taken in will be given to either Family Works Food Bank or Union Gospel Mission’s “Hope Place” Women’s and Children’s shelter.  

 Along with September being back to school time in our community, September is also; “Back to Church time”, in the common life of the Church! In that vein, I want to encourage folks to do their best to return to Sunday morning services, as well as our Thursday morning Bible Study.  Our Thursday morning Bible study for the Fall and Winter, begins on Thursday, Sept 8th.  At our traditional time of 10:30am. Please check in with Jan W. about whether the Thursday night Bible Study, led by Brother Robert O. will continue on into the Fall?         

 People of God, as we wind down a beautiful but hot summer season, let us, as God’s called and redeemed sons and daughters, carry on in our faithful “work and witness”, here at Fremont Baptist Church.  May you all have a blessed and peaceful, Labor day Holiday weekend. Then, let’s return to Fall worship, Christian Education & Missions. “Rested and Ready” to serve the Lord and our community long into the Fall! 

Peace be with you all, Pastor Jeff

P.S. The Gospel reading for Labor day Sunday, September 4th, is the “Parable of the Prodigal Son”. As we “return to church” in the Fall, please ponder and “meditate” on this powerful lesson, found in St. Luke’s Gospel.  Luke 15:11-31.
