June 29th -- Beware the New Age Agenda

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,  and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.
And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. 1 John 4:1-3


Hello Friends!

Guess who's super excited about this week's FNF?!

This week's feast will be held at/hosted by Birmingham 1st SDA Church.
Dinner will be provided from 6-7:20pm.
The address is 3520 Lorna Road, Birmingham, AL 35216.

Christopher Hudson, also known as The ForeRunner777, will present an eye-opening study on the New Age Agenda. Many may be familiar with "The ForeRunner" as he has spoken to standing room only crowds at various colleges, has appeared on 3ABN and has a large, supportive following on YouTube for his videos that expose the satanic influences driving mainstream media and politics today.

The presentation will begin promptly at 7:30pm.
Please invite friends and family-- especially young people!

Wanna hear more? Mr. Hudson will speak at Birmingham 1st SDA on Saturday, June 30th @ 10:45am and again @ 2pm following a potluck.


I've so enjoyed all of the FNF meetings in June. Thanks so much to all of our study leaders who spoke on hard hitting issues-- prayer life, stewardship and forgiveness.  Each week's conversation was right on time and I love how God is growing the group and how mere acquaintances are slowly becoming true friends.

As friends, we care about and reach out to those of us who are going through. "Going through" has (depending on the day) meant financial stress, marital adjustments, school struggles, moving/relocation, child birth, job uncertainty, personal/family illness and death. Man, so much death.
In the past month, our family of FNFers have lost brothers, sisters, cousins and close friends. I dunno about you but I'm so glad to have blessed hope in God's ultimate plan of salvation and so thankful for Jesus's part in it. He lived in this world and He went through the same temptations, disappointments and bewildering, painful episodes of this short life, willingly, for us. He understands dreams and grief and hopes that we will seek comfort in Him. I don't have the prayer request list from last week but just ask that you remember ALL of our FNF group in prayer this week.
Love y'all and hope to see you this weekend.

June 22nd -- In God We Trust

Charge those who are rich in this world that they be not haughty, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
 that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. 1 Timothy 6:17-19

After last week's promising prediction that 90% of the FNF-ers in the room would one day be financially well-to-do, I figured I'd better remind everyone of the closing text's instructions on how to handle God's financial blessings ☺

I hope you are having a great week-- Sabbath is just around the corner and FNF will be hosted by... Victor, Geneva and Zeke! 
According to Zeke, we will be feasting on... "the Word" and we are asked to bring bibles and dessert.

Our study leader for the evening will be another PK, Cara!
Please join us for dinner at 6:30pm and we'll start the study around 7:30pm.

June 8th -- "...that which so easily besets us"

Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. 1 Cor 10:12

*In my best Goonies voice* Hey You Guyyyyssssss!!!
Hope you're having a swell week and are ready for some FNF fun!

Chichi is our host for FNF this week.

We will start with dinner at 6:30pm and our study should begin around 7:30pm.

So I don't actually watch the Family Guy but I can relate to the above cartoon with Peter. Have you ever felt spiritually strong, like you know everything is going well and you're actively trying to run the race and living for a God-ience (not an audience) of one and you just sense that... you were probably about to slip up big time?  Well, that's how I feel right now. 
Life has been awesome lately and I keep thinking when is the ball going to drop? Perhaps because I feel so secure in God, I keep trying to... push the envelope and I know it isn't cool but I do it anyway, entertaining old thoughts and familiar temptations just because it's a new season. (How's that for a fragmented, run-on sentence?)

Anyway, I just wanted to encourage you as I encourage myself to continue to strive for better, for excellence. Enjoy life but remember, "summer comes before the fall" and we should be careful not to fall for the devil's old tricks. I'll leave you with some verses that speak on that... God bless!

If you think you are strong, you should be careful not to fall. The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it. 1 Cor 10:12-13
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Ecc 4:10
Offer praise to God our Savior because of our Lord Jesus Christ! Only God can keep you from falling and make you pure and joyful in his glorious presence. Before time began and now and forevermore, God is worthy of glory, honor, power, and authority. Amen. Jude 1:24
