Let’s Load!

We will be loading the trailer with what’s been collected for Kentucky on Wednesday evening after prayer meeting. If you are willing to help with that effort, please plan on joining us. Prayer meeting is at 6:30 every Wednesday evening. Due to the vast number of donations that have come in, our original destination site can handle no more donations, so we’ve changed to a different drop site, and will be driving there next week, rather than Thursday of this…

Onward!

Hard Hat Sunday is behind us, and we are full speed ahead with things here at FBC. The kids’ ministries are in full swing – Parents, bring your kids back to church!

This Saturday, the John and Jamie Evans will be hosting a time of fellowship and gospel music at…

PENULTIMATE!

That’s one of my favorite words. “Penultimate” means “last but one in a series of things”; “next to the last”. It’s a particularly appropriate word for our weekend update, for this Saturday we will celebrate our PENULTIMATE campfire fellowship. Mike and Vickie Mullaly will be hosting at their home between 5-9PM. Their address is 1147 Shenk Rd., Mogadore. They live at the very end of Shenk Rd. Bring a dish to share if you’re able, and a chair on which…

This Sunday, in celebration of these things, and as a reminder of the tasks that lie ahead, we will hold “HARD HAT SUNDAY.” Souvenir hard hats will be on hand as…
