January 2021 Newletter

Dear Friend,

When our great nation was founded there was a hunger for freedom! Ben Franklin said, “we must all hang together or most assuredly, we will all hang separately?” 

There was commitment, hard work, sacrifice, and endurance in creating the country we celebrate on Independence Day – July 4th. Someone said, “Freedom is an innate longing of the human soul and is an inborn characteristic of us all. It is a mark of how God has created us.”

We can all learn from this example to become spiritually free in Christ. When you lose your best friend, when sickness is unbearable, when finances fall apart, when there is separation or divorce, in short when your whole world blows apart you can survive. How? 

By learning to be spiritually independent with God. Jesus put this in perspective when He said, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). 

When we can internalize God’s Truth so that it becomes part of our thinking process, then we can be free and will be able to handle the ups and downs of life. 

2020 was a difficult year, and who knows what 2021 will bring, but one thing is certain…God is constant and will always be there for us. 

This month we are going to center our thoughts on become Spiritually Independent.

02 Don’t Let Your Faith Hibernate
03 The Basics of Spiritual Independence / God’s Future Plan – The Rapture (9:00 am Class)
09 It’s Cold. Is The Fire Out?
10 Derreck Speaking / God’s Future Plan – The Tribulation (9:00 am Class)
16 Want To Go For A Spin? The Slippery Slope

23 True Spiritual Growth

30 When You Seek Him...Prayer Service at 6:30 PM
31 Zach Speaking

Enclosed you will find a flyer that explains a new class I will teach on Sunday morning at 9:00 AM dealing with God’s Future Plans.

I have wanted to teach this class for quite some time, and now seems to be good. This is a class on God’s Chronological Timetable for the future. 

This Sunday I will focus on the Rapture specifically what it is, when it will happen, and how to get ready for it. The following Sunday will be on the Seven Years of Tribulation. 

Most of the book of Revelation is focused on this important period. Not everyone will go through this awful period of time…come and find out how you can escape it. 

My wife and I will take a 3 Sunday vacation and come back in February and finish the course. I would love to have you come and join us.

We thank God for our December offerings. We are very close to having enough to finish our new children’s wing. Please continue to pray for us to finish it and whether God wants you to contribute. May your New Year be filled with His blessings.

Your Shepherd, 
Pastor Terry Angles

December 2020 News

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  Christmas is one of my most favorite times of the year as we celebrate the Birth of the Savior of the World, have special family time, and share in the giving and receiving of gifts.  This year we want to use the Tradition of Advent to worship the coming of Jesus Christ, our Messiah.   What does this mean? “Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas (or sometimes from the December 1st to Christmas Day!)  Advent means ‘Coming’ in Latin.  This is the coming of Jesus into the world.  Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas.”  Some religions use an Advent wreath which has four candles that recognize the four virtues of hope, love, joy and peace that Christ brought.  Please be in prayer and bring your friends to this special time of the year as we anticipate the blessing of Jesus Christ.

I want to draw your attention to the two special events this month.  One is the Children’s Program entitled Manager Tales.  Our children have been practicing many weeks for this special Christmas presentation.  The Second is our Christmas Eve Service at 5:00 PM.  There will be singing, special music, and a short Christmas Message.  This is a huge Milwaukee Tradition…bring your family and friends.


I want to thank all of you for your faithfulness in giving especially during this pandemic.  We have been able to pay our bills and build Phase I and part of Phase II of the new children’s wing.  December is one of our best giving months of the year because many get caught up and some give yearly.  As we pray and give as God directs, whatever is excess we will put toward the Children’s Wing.  We need at least $30,000 to finish it off.


I want to remind those of you that are 70.5 years old -  that you can give your RMD (Required Minimum Distribution) to church and not pay taxes on it.  The RMD must be given directly by the trustee of the IRA to church.  The church will recognize your contribution and give a record of your giving (we do this for all givers).  Not everyone will be taking a RMD in 2020 because of the CARES Act.  Ask your investor for further information.

November 2020 Newsletter

Dear Friend,

In the midst of a very difficult year some people may be struggling with the idea of being thankful. The Covid-19 Pandemic has created havoc and made a vastly different America, but that is the beautiful thing about being a Christ Follower…we can be thankful in spite of our circumstances. 

Psalm 107 says it well, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever…He led them straight to safety, to a city where they could live. Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for all his wonderful deeds to them” (1,7-8 NLT). God continues to lead our church as we seek His will. 

Trunk or Treat was a great day with many new people touching base with our church. We are currently in a building project to build our children’s wing…Our giving through the Pandemic allowed us to be over budget and invest $40,000 for Phase One. 

We are in Phase Two and have raised $18,000 of our goal of $25,000. This is nearly impossible during this difficult time, but we serve a God of the impossible. No matter what happens in our world today, we can praise the Lord!

A wise Pastor once shared this idea, “The easiest and shortest way to get to the heart of God and get victory over situations and circumstances no matter how big, is through acceptable praise. 

It is a guarantee for Victory and a mighty tool in the hand of every believer.” We have spent 40 Days in Prayer and God continues to bless us. Let us apply what we learned in prayer and make November a month of Thanksgiving and Praise. 

Please attend in person or stream the following messages in a spirit of prayer…
07 Thankful For Veterans
08 Thankful For The Church
14 Thankful for Friends and Family
15 Thankful For What I Cannot Change
21 Thankful For Our Daily Bread
22 Gratitude
26 Happy Thanksgiving
28 Thankful For Salvation in Jesus
29 Thankful For Relationship

December 19th Children’s Program…Manager Tales. This is a Christmas program which creates an event full of joyful worship, playful presentation, and fresh examination into the story of Jesus’ birth. Set the date aside and bring your friends. Please wear masks and practice social distancing.

To complete Phase Two of the new children’s wing we need an extra $7000 above our normal giving. Please pray and give wherever you can…our children will be thankful!

Your Shepherd, 
Pastor Terry F Angles

Dear Friend

This Sunday will be day 28 of our "40 Days ofPrayer". My wife and I have done the Journal together, prayed together,went to Bible Studios together and had wonderful time! What Is more unifyingthan praying together? 

Pastor Rick Warren in the study made a profoundstatement, "The purpose for prayer is not to conform God to my way ofmooing things; the purpose for prayer Is to conform me to the kingdom, power,and glory of God," It is to "align my life with God's purpose", 

In short Prayer is an act of worship! 

May I encourage you to continue with us,or Join with us the next 12 days in this all important subject. 

Don't forgetthe 4 things we are praying for: 

(1) Outreach to our community; 

(2) Healing ofOur Nation in facing the next election;

September 2020 Newsletter

Dear Friend,


What is prayer?  Years ago someone said, “Prayer is the slender nerve that moves the muscles of God.”  Prayer is the most powerful activity in the world, but it must have faith.  Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you” (Matt. 17:20).  Wow, that’s amazing!  For the next 40 days beginning September 12th every sermon and all small groups, will focus on prayer.  There is a book available for those in small groups that teaches prayer and helps you to journal for 40 days.  If you are not in a small group now is the time to join…consider these possibilities:



·         Sonseekers (all ages)         11:30 AM in rooms 8-10  (414-793-6110)

Dear Friend,

There is no question that we are living in one of the most difficult times in America due to Covid-19. People have lost jobs, many have gotten sick, church attendance is low, there is a great deal of uncertainty regarding the future, and we are in an election year where much is being politicized. This past week the Governor Evers of Wisconsin issued a mask mandate inside all public buildings for the next 60 days. That means we will all have to wear a mask in church in obedience to Rom. 13:1 & 2,

  • Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

God will carry us through the present trials as long as we remember Jeremiah 32:27, “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”. This is a rhetorical question where God is shouting NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR ME! Sunday morning services will focus on CELEBRATING LIFE by studying how five Biblical Characters made it through difficult times. Saturday evening sermons will focus on the truth behind five popular hymns.

     01 “He Touched Me”
     02 Life of Samson
     08 “Just A Closer Walk With Thee”
     09 Life of Daniel
     15 “I Saw The Light”
     16 Life of Rahab
     22 “Because He Lives”
     23 Life of David
     29 “Victory In Jesus” / Prayer Gathering at 6:30 PM
     30 Life of Joseph

Dear Church,

 Praise God Faith Bible Church is now open for services!  We were thrilled last week when 70% of our average attendance were present.  The church was cleaned, sanitized, ready for use, and the chairs were arranged for social distancing.  There was meaningful worship, practical teaching, wonderful fellowship, and the kickoff of the children’s program.  If you were unable to attend, please join us this week.

 The Coronavirus has been the headlines for the last two months, but we must not let it steal the headlines from Jesus Christ.  The unrest caused by the tragic death of George Floyd must not take away from the peace that Jesus Christ offers.  We are still trying to understand what the new normal will be.  Change is difficult so this month our series will be EMBRACING CHANGE.  Our study will come from the book of Acts, which transitions from the Life of Christ in the Gospels, to the development of the church in the Epistles.  The Saturday night service as well as Sunday morning will focus on Embracing Change to help us cope with our present culture.  Please pray for these Saturdays and Sundays, invite your friends, come, and expect a blessing!



            06        (Sat.)  “No Whining”

            07        “Power To Thrive” (Acts 2)

             13        (Sat.)   “Turn The World Around The Other Way”

            13        9am Prayer Walk (Meet at FBC)

            14            “I Can’t Help It” (Acts 4:13)

             20        (Sat.)  “Navigating Change”

            21        “Leading Change”…Father’s Day…Our Fathers will be honored with a                         special gift given to each one!

             27        (Sat.)  “Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome” / “Prayer Gathering” to follow

            28        “Dead or Alive” (Acts 6)


This is a picture of last Sunday.  We will stream each service and continue to make improvements technically as needed.  Thank you for your faithfulness in giving so our church can continue to thrive!              

Your appreciative Pastor

2020 Covid-19 Faith Bible Church
Safety Policy & Guidelines

Philippians 2:4
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

“Therefore I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine, and take it. I shall avoid persons and places where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance infect and pollute others, and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should wish to take me, He will surely find me, and I have done what He has expected of me and I am not responsible for either my own death or the death of others. If my neighbor needs me, however, I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely, as stated above. See, this is such a God-fearing faith because it is neither brash nor foolhardy and does not tempt God.”
- Martin Luther

Faith Bible Church takes health safety very seriously during this unique time in history with this very contagious virus. This virus effects people quite differently, and has become politicized, so people’s perspectives vary dramatically over this issue. Faith Bible feels that with the diverse age groups and underlying health issues some have, it is important to err on the side of caution. 

These steps are how our church events will proceed:

  • If you are sick, or think you might be sick, please stay home. 
  • Those with underlying health issues please live stream the service at home. We want you to stay safe with our complete blessing. 
  • Seating will be arranged honoring the CDC recommended six foot social distancing between families and individuals. 
  • No handshakes and hugs at this time. 
  • Ushers will open all needed doors or doors will be set open. 
  • The wearing of masks, while a good option, is not a requirement. Make those wearing masks comfortable doing so. 
  • No printed bulletins will be handed out. 
  • No communion in service at this time. 
  • No offering plates will be passed in the service. 
  • No meals or group banquets at this time. 
  • No communal drinks or snacks offered at this time. Covered coffee cups are ok. Individual cremes will be provided. 
  • Wash hands frequently and especially after using tissues. 
  • Hand sanitizer will be in key areas. 
  • The church will be sanitized weekly.

May News

Hey Church! 

Well it’s May and we’re excited to get back together with all of you. Kirsten and I have been here a month already, and we have been treated so well and feel so welcomed. This week we found out that we will be having a little girl this September. I’m so looking forward to the party we’re gonna have when we all meet back together. 

For the majority of this month we are planning as a church to still meet online through Facebook and Youtube. We are also starting a new sermon series called “Living Life with the Right Perspective.” Through this five week series we’re going through the book of Philippines and study the apostle Paul’s teaching on joy, humility, and confidence. Next week is Mothers Day, and we have fun plans to honor and celebrate our mothers and grandmothers during our online service. 

3 - Changing Our Perspective (Philippians 1)
10 - Mother’s Day (Philippians 2)
17 - Where’s Your Confidence? (Philippians 3:1-11)
24 - Memorial Day (Philippians 3:12-21)
31 - (Philippians 4)

We love you church, and if you need anything please don’t hesitate to let us know how we can help you. 


See you soon!

April 18, 2020 Update

Dear Friend,

Every need in society is an OPEN DOOR to share Gods love.  As a church we must respond to the COVID-19 crisis, not by panicking or hiding out of fear, but by trusting God and reaching out to others in need.  No matter how frustrating, confusing, or scary this crisis gets, FEAR should not have the final say.  Near the end of the New Testament, the Apostle John wrote, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.  For fear has to do with punishment, and who ever fears has not been perfected in love” (I John 4:18).  Our security is built on the perfect love of Jesus Christ, and we need to share that love with the world.


If you need help, we want to say that we care about you!  Our goal during this crisis is to serve you however you need.  Our food pantry is open, people continue to contribute to it, and there is food for you.  If you need spiritual counsel, we are here for you.  If you need encouragement there are many that can pray with you.  Whatever your need please feel free to call the church (414) 327-4484.  If you want to help, please let us know.  There are many ways to serve people such as getting groceries for those who cant. 


We want to be intentional about being connected with you.  At this time, we have a state mandate not to meet, which we must obey and follow the rules.  Our services are streamed at 10:00 AM on Sunday morning.  We have 12 small group that are meeting by zoom and connecting online.  Some are counseling over zoom.  Whatever your need, please leave your name and phone number on the church phone and we will get back to you. 


God allows times like these to build our faith and love.  We are greatly indebted to those of you who have continued to give sacrificially during this difficult time.  Remember you can give these ways:

·         Bill Pay…Set this up online or with your bank.

·         Mail in or drop off your gift at church

·         Online Giving:  give.fbcwi.us or text (414) 310-3128


During this unprecedented time in which we cant meet as a church, we are using borrowed equipment to stream our services.  Please pray that God will sustain our present equipment and help us eventually to get our own.


We love you, miss you, and appreciate all you do for Faith Bible Church.  Please let us help you if you are in need!


Your Shepherd,

Dear Friends,

So much has changed in our world over the last few weeks, but we know God’s desire to build His church hasn’t changed.  At FBC we want to continue to fulfill his mission “to lead as many as possible into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.”  We know that God desires for us to still meet needs, pray for each other, and connect in the community; with today’s technology, all of it is possible!  To stay connected, this is what we have done in the last two weeks.

  • Sent out a church letter to inform people about streaming.  We are doing this through Facebook and YouTube.
  • Texted everyone before every service.
  • Wrote or videoed a Devotional Every day.
  • Streamed Live two services.
  • Most small groups have met or are scheduled to meet by zoom.
  • If you know of people who need help getting food, please let us know…we have a team to do that.
  • Food Pantry is open to all.  If you can, please help us stock it.
  • If you have not received letters or texts, please call (414) 531-5587.


Many of you have wondered what Easter will look like for us.  We believe that God wants us to continue to reach people even if it’s all online, and that’s our plan.  Our Easter will be all online.  To make Easter more effective we need your help in the following:


  1. Continue to pray.  Pray for each other, pray for those you are involved with in ministry, and pray for Pastoral Staff and Elders as we lead you.
  2. Invite people to Easter.  A quick selfie video, either posted on your page or sent as a message to a few special people would be great.
  3. Invite others to our weekly church services we are streaming.  Here are the April messages:

        05        Hope in The Faithfulness of God (Derreck)   

        12        Easter – The Hope of the Resurrection (Terry)                    

        19        The Problem of Exclusivity (Zach)

        26        Church Live (Derreck)

Thanks to all who have continued to give sacrificially during this difficult time.  Remember you can give these ways:

  • Bill Pay…Set this up online or with your bank.
  • Mail in or drop off your gift at church
  • Online Giving:  give.fbcwi.church or text (414) 310-3128

Some have inquired about finances.  This is a critical time for everyone when it comes to finances.  The church will continue to rely on weekly giving and will steward responsibly.  The ways to give are:

  • Bill Pay:  Set this up online or with your bank.

Remember not to get caught up with fear during this time “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7).  We are praying for your families health and safety, and that the name of Jesus will be proclaimed throughout our nation.


Trusting God In This Storm,


The Pastors and Elders
