Joy!

This weekend is a joyous occasion – the return to a single worship service on Sundays at FBC. Our new (actually old) schedule will now be: Sunday School at 9:30 AM Morning Worship at 10:30 AM The original seating arrangement in the sanctuary has been restored, and activities of the church are returning to normal. We still advise caution and common sense with respect to masks and social distancing. Please take responsibility for your own health and use masks and…

Just Around the Corner

Easter, that is. It’s just around the corner, and we are so looking forward to being able to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord together.

Sunday, March 28th – Palm Sunday – Pastor Phil Ross will be preaching in both services. Friday, April 2nd – Good Friday – Tuvya Zaretski representing…

Colossal Happenings!

Huge… enormous… immense… prodigious… gigantic… gargantuan… mammoth… cosmic! Those are a few words to describe some of the good stuff happening here at FBC over the next couple months. This Saturday we are restarting our Men’s Prayer Breakfasts! Having gone without these wonderful events for a year now, that is huge news indeed. Of course, we’re taking it slow and safe, so we’re limiting attendance to only 20. If you were one of those who managed to get on the…

A Slight Change Of Plans

Church Family, I had to put my father in the hospital on Sunday evening. He had basically lost the use of his legs, and couldn’t stand. Tests so far have determined that his kidneys are failing, and this may have been the cause of his problem. As is routine at hospitals now, I guess, they performed a COVID test and found that he was positive for that, as well. And, since I was with him most of Sunday afternoon and…

Returning (albeit slowly) to Normal

We (the elders and I) have been prayerfully trying to determine when and how we should return to normalcy here at FBC. It is not an easy decision, and I certainly ask for your prayers. Knowing that no decision we make will be agreed to by all, we are carefully considering and planning for the following next steps: On April 11th (i.e. the Sunday following Easter), we will return to a single service format with normal seating arrangement. All currently…

Just 2 Weeks Away!

RED HEART SUNDAY! We can’t gather together in a single service yet, and we can’t eat together, but we can ALL WEAR RED TOGETHER!!!! A very special gift will be available to the first 100 who attend!

Weekend Stuff

Well here we are only into the 2nd Lord’s Day of the year, and already 2021 is turning into an interesting year. This Sunday at FBC will be an interesting one, too. Our 2 service schedule continues this week, with early worship at 8:30 and late worship at 10:30. The early service continues to be the more lightly attended, so if distancing is important to you, that’s the service to try. We have adequate spacing for the late service as…

Coming to the End!

We are coming to the end in several ways: It’s Friday – the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. Praise the Lord it’s almost the Lord’s Day, the best day of the week and the start of a new one. It’s almost December – the end of 2020. Many will say Praise God for that. And the Scripture is clear that we’re in the last minutes. It’s almost the end of everything here as we know…

Last Chance!

This coming Lord’s Day (November 22nd) is the last Sunday you can bring in shoeboxes for this year’s Operation Christmas Child collection. If you miss the Sunday deadline, the trailer won’t leave until 11 on Monday, so you can still bring boxes from 9-11 on Monday. Then that’s it! Pack those boxes! And pray like crazy for souls to be saved by the trailer load of shoeboxes going out from this place!
