We wanted to make you local folks aware of a special patriotic-themed service
coming up this Sunday, July 1st, at our church, First Baptist Church of Troy.
We have quite a unique speaker this year!
Here is a short blurb on him:
"September 10, 2001, First Officer Steve Scheibner packed his suitcase and waited for the phone call finalizing his assignment to fly American Airlines Flight 11, from Boston to Los Angeles. The call never came. In My Seat recounts the events leading up to Flight 11 and the subsequent death of Tom McGuinness in the seat that should have been filled by Steve Scheibner. Long before the events of September 11th, God was preparing Steve to become a "Borrowed-Time Believer" and a man who could share the picture of Christ's substitutionary atonement on the cross; a picture clearly painted by Tom as he filled Steve's seat that day. Steve's story shows you the God who works behind the scenes to use even the most horrific events for His glory."
Here is a short video that has been put together about his experience:
Mr. Scheibner will be speaking at our church in person on July 1st,
during Sunday School (9:00 AM) and in the morning service (10:15 AM).
It will be a very interesting and inspiring story of faith and providence!
Hope to see you there!
