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”.

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…

Campfire Time!

Big stuff happening this weekend! Have you driven by the church and noticed the walls rising? 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. It’s truly wonderful and amazing to see what can be done in a short time by a committed group of God’s people! Young and old helped. And up go the walls. Today is dear sweet Esther Smith’s funeral.…
