Christmas offering will be in the pew racks through December. The Christmas offering will be divided between the Youth Costa Rica mission trip and FBC’s General Fund.

Missionary Christmas prayer letters arrive weekly! Please stop by the rack outside of the chapel to pick up your copy. You will be encouraged & challenged by the news they share.
