Christmas

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!

Putting It In High Gear!

Operation Christmas Child for 2020 is now speeding toward the end. Here are the important things to remember, pray about, and participate in: PACKING PARTY – This coming Saturday, November 21st at 10:00 AM. Join us as we work together to pack as many shoe boxes as we can. Knowing that this is a challenging year, the team has worked hard to make this event as safe as possible. There is a plan for maintaining distancing, and still packing A…

Or… Here’s An Alternative!

If you can’t make the packing party on Saturday, November 14th at 10:00 AM, you can still pack your own box or boxes and bring them to the church anytime between now and the end of collection week which is November 16th-23rd. All supplies are available at the church so you can pack your own box(es) and bless a child or children this Christmas with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

It’s Almost Here!!!!!

Food in abundance. Lot’s of goodies to pack lots of boxes so lots of children will be blessed with the gospel this Christmas. And we have a plan in place to keep you as safe as possible while serving the Lord and packing boxes!  Join us Saturday, November 14th at 10:00 AM!

Fellowships and Surveys

Two important things to bear in mind as we enter the weekend: This Saturday from 3-5PM, those who purchased pepperoni rolls in support of Operation Christmas Child may pick them up at the church. Then starting at 5PM, the last outdoor fellowship of the year, the Fall Family Fellowship, will take place in the area behind the cemetery next to the church. Bring a lawn chair, a dish to pass, and dress warm. We’ll roast weenies, have some games for…

Let’s Build Stuff!

This Saturday, October 10th at 10AM, we will be having the first ASSEMBLY DAY for Operation Christmas Child. If you’d like to help us put together some of the gifts we will be including in the shoe boxes this year, please join us in Fellowship Hall. OCC will look different this year, but there are multiple ways to participate. This is one of them. Packing your own boxes is another. We have loads of boxes and you can take as…

Removal of the Greens

Just a quick reminder to all willing to help – we will be taking down most of the Christmas decorations tomorrow (Friday) at 9:00 AM. If you are able to help, we’d love to have the extra hands. The coffee will be on!

Christmas Time Is Here!

We aren’t having quite as many Christmas activities this year at FBC, so don’t miss out on the ones we’re having! First, join us Sunday for Sunday School and Worship at 9:30 and 10:30 respectively. Sunday worship will be a special Christmas service with special music by our “pick up” choir. Then, Sunday evening the WOW gals are hosting a Christmas Caroling time at two local nursing homes. Anybody can participate, and the more who do the better we’ll be…

All You Christmas Decorating Fiends…

It’s YOUR TIME! Some of you couldn’t wait until after Thanksgiving to start the Christmas music and decorating. Some of you were itching to put up your tree before Halloween had passed. And I know of at least one particular establishment in the area that had Christmas trees in place in AUGUST!!! So, those of you who so love decorating, come and help us decorate the Lord’s house this Saturday, November 30, at 1:00. The “Hanging of the Greens” goes…

Euphorbia pulcherrima

Or… as it’s commonly called – POINSETTIA. If you’d like to purchase one or more to help decorate the church, you need to do so no later than this coming Lord’s Day (December 2nd). Once Christmas services are over, the flowers you purchased are yours to keep.  Order forms are in the church foyer:
