IT’s getting that time again, for us’ns to gather from all around the Colonies to Possum Kingdom. As we gather there will be fun, frolic, competitions, but most of all time to worship and share God’s word.
Also we are wanting this to be a Reunion Trace. Please if you have Brother FCF’ERS you know that haven’t met with us in a while invite them and bring them with you. Our Chairman’s goal is 100 at Trace. Let’s work hard to help this happen.
Again we need, especially our Buckskin and Wilderness to make some nice prizes for our competitions. If you would like you may go to James Townsend or Smoke and Fire, there are many others to get prizes. Please, we have been very lack in this area, just covering Young Bucks 1ST prize. So please help us out here. Anyone can make or bring items for prizes.
Also don’t forget Mission AUCTION ITEMS!!! Last year we raised over $2000 and an FCF’ER matched that to make it over $4000. Awesome but we can do even greater!!
Our focus this year is “More Than Conquerors”, Romans 8:37. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus!!
