Christmas

CHRISTMAS WEEKEND UPDATE!

Tonight, Christmas Eve Carols and Candlelight Service at 6:30. It’s a busy evening, I know, but carve out an hour to remember the reason. You’ll be glad you did. Sunday, Sunday School at 9:30 and Worship at 10:30. It’s the day after Christmas and many will be recovering from the previous days festivities. Don’t neglect worship, though. You’ll be glad you came!  

Christmas Kindness

On Saturday, December 18th at 10AM, we will pack and distribute care packages for our widows and widowers. If you’d like to earn some heavenly rewards you can join us to pack the boxes and then distribute them. See you at 10AM in Fellowship Hall?

Peace Has Come!

You know what this coming Saturday is? Well let me tell you, it’s not something you’ll want to miss. This Saturday, December 4th, at 6:30 PM the FBC Praise Team, Praise Band, and Choir will share this year’s Christmas cantata entitled “Peace Has Come!” The music is beautiful and the message is wonderful. Please consider joining us on Saturday, which will be your only opportunity to participate in the cantata this year, as we’ll only present it one time. And…

Christmas Time is Here!

Well… at least it will be this Saturday. Here at FBC we always hang the greens on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. This year is no different. The building project impacts what we can do a bit, but we’re going to decorate as much as we can. Will you join us at 10AM on Saturday? We’ll have refreshments and plenty of coffee, as usual. We have 2 CIA projects going at the same time on Saturday, so some of those who…

Weekend Happenings – November 20-21

Please give of your morning and participate if at all possible. Just meet us in Fellowship Hall. ALSO, Saturday morning we need to empty the trailer (just has some chairs in it) and move the Operation Christmas Child boxes into it. If a few will volunteer for this task,…

Let’s Pack!

Amazingly, it’s already here! Time to pack the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, that is. You can join us this Saturday (November 13th) at 10:00 AM for our annual packing party. This year we have a goal of 600 boxes and if we get a good crowd of people, we’ll have that done in no time, and no doubt exceed the goal. Everything is provided, as you’ll see in the pictures below. All you need to do is come and grab…

Speeding Up!

It’s time to really get moving on the Operation Christmas Child effort for 2021. We have an assembly day scheduled for Thursday evening, and we’ll be putting shoeboxes together. Can you help? Easy peasy way to serve the Lord! And when we hear back from those who received shoeboxes from FBC, you’ll know you had a part in it! Join us Thursday, October 28th at 6:30 PM. We need lots of hands to assemble lots of shoeboxes. It’s also time…

Some of the gifts we will be placing in…

No End of Fun

Our ladies are sewing in support of Operation Christmas Child. They are having a blast serving Jesus!

Carols and Candles

Because of the pandemic this year, I elected to cancel our normal Christmas Eve candlelight services. Those services normally draw a large crowd, and most of that crowd is from outside our normal church family. Out of an abundance of caution, therefore, I cancelled the normal Christmas Eve candlelight services this year. Some have expressed chagrin over that decision, and our awesome worship leader Beth came up with a compromise. We will use the prayer meeting this week, which is…
