Snow foolin’

Being as how it is snowing on April 2, it may be time to file an injunction against Punxsutawney Phil. Enough with winter, already!

Chicopee Easter Egg Hunt 2018

Rather than host an Easter Outreach on our property, First Central Bible Church joined with the City of Chicopee for their Easter Egg Hunt. This is our second year to participate in the event. We hosted a table where we gave out coffee, water, and snacks. We also gave out free bags which included brochures about the church. Our team served the coffee, gave out the bags, and had many conversations with people. The event allows us to bless the community and be present in a non-threatening manner. Who knows where the conversations and brochures might lead?


Worshipping at the Downtown GetDown

This morning, the “Dave Krok Experience”–Dave, Jack, Ron, Jessica, Stephanie, Keli, and Lauren–one of First Central Bible Church‘s worship team played on the stage at the Chicopee Downtown GetDown. From 11:00AM – 12 Noon, they were the featured band on the stage in front of the old library. A number of FCBC folks were present to encourage and worship along with the team. Our presence led to a number of conversations during the concert and afterwards.


Chicopee Downtown Get Down

First Central Bible Church had a booth at the Chicopee Downtown GetDown, the city block party. We had free bags, a raffle for a gift basket, and pictures for kids to color that would be displayed at City Hall. Tomorrow morning, one of our worship teams will be playing on the stage.


Call before you dig

You know those signs that say, “Call before you dig”? Well, there is a reason for the warning.

Thursday morning, about 9:30AM, one of our Admin Assistants at First Central Bible Church came down the hallway to say we didn’t have any water. Looking out the window, we saw three City of Chicopee trucks in the parking lot. She went outside to find out what was going on. The apartment complex next door was renovating their playground. The person doing the work was using an auger, probably digging a footing for the new equipment. As you can guess, he hit a water main. Instead of building a playground, he now had a swimming pool. 😉 The city came to the rescue, but first they had to call Dig Safe to find out what else was underground. Fortunately, the water was back on by noon.

A little bit of excitement and humor for a weekday morning.


Chicopee sunrise

One of the benefits of not being able to sleep is to see a spectacular sunrise. God’s glory in on display.

“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.”

Proverbs 4:18

FCBC at the bat

The spring 2017 interchurch softball season is underway. After one month, First Central Bible Church is 4-2 with one rainout. The team is a mix of young guns and ageless veterans. It’s always a fun evening of fellowship, conversation, competition, and friendship.
