Weather Cancellations – Ever wonder if a service, class or study has been cancelled due to bad weather? Here’s where you can find your answer:
  • Our website:

Christmas Tree of Love – Christmas is a time of giving! You will find the Tree of Love in the kitchen foyer by the gym entrance. Each ornament represents a person and a gift request or suggestion. As God leads you, please take an ornament from the tree and return it unwrapped in a Christmas-style gift bag to the church office by Sunday 12/15. Please keep the ornament with the gift so we can get it to the right person. If you are giving a gift card, please attach the receipt and/or the activation slip with the gift card.
New Year’s Eve Celebration – 5pm Dinner Suggested Donation $5/person or $15/family – 6pm Movie – Overcomer – From the creators of the #1 box-office hit WAR ROOM. Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison (ALEX KENDRICK) after he loses his basketball team and is challenged by the school’s principal, Olivia (PRISCILLA SHIRER), to coach a new sport he doesn’t know or like. As John  questions his own worth, he dares to help the least likely runner take on the biggest race of the year. Filled with a powerful mix of faith, humor and heart, this inspirational story will have you on the edge of your seat. Great for ALL ages! Sign up by 12/29 by contacting the church office.
Seasons Readings! Stop in at our Library and wrap yourself up in a good book. Yule love our selection. Snow many titles for all ages! And no naughty-list for late returns.
Children’s Church (grades 1-2) is on break and will resume 1/19. Junior Children’s Church will meet as regularly scheduled.
Christmas Offering will go toward our Forever Being Changed ministry expansion project! Envelopes are available in the pews.
Attention Greeters: If any of you are willing to help with greeting at either of the services on Christmas Eve, please contact Linda Sue Davies.
Caroling to Our Sweet Shut-ins! At 4pm today, we’ll gather in the FBC kitchen to box up assortments of cookies to hand out during our caroling. Any last minute cookie donations are still welcome! We leave to go caroling by 5pm. This is a family friendly event!
