Christmas Gifts for Truckers! During the Christmas season, FBC has been partnering with Pastor Howard Long for many years in his ministry to truck drivers at the Buckhorn Chapel!

Call for Christmas Cookies! We’ll be caroling to our shut-ins on December 15 and we give each of them a plate of assorted Christmas cookies!
