It’s gonna be good! The new building is rising at full speed behind the church, and the building of disciples for Jesus…

Sweat Equity – Updated 8/24/2021

One of the ways we are able to cut costs on our building project is when we are able to pick up some of the labor ourselves, saving paying sub contractors. I’m so thankful for those who have been stepping up and doing just that. I know I’ve peppered you with a lot of emails about various tasks. I hope you’ll bear with those communications, as sweat equity tasks are going to be a continual part of the project. Here…

Wanted – A Few Good Men and Women

Campfire Time!

Praise the Lord for His oversight, and for the help of so many of you who came and assembled the blocks for those walls this week.

R.O.N.O.P.A.A.T. – Have you signed up yet?

Dear FBC Family, We recently began a program that the Lord has laid heavily on my heart – R.O.N.O.P.A.A.T. – Reaching Our Neighbors One Prayer At A Time.

We managed to cover a good portion of Randolph in that effort, but participation was minimal and we eventually put that program to rest. However, I recently became aware of a way that we…
