Join us for our 10:30 AM Worship Service this Sunday Pastor Glen continues his "What To Do ..." Mini-Message Series with:

What To Do When You Get Hurt
Also This Sunday:

We will observe the Lord's Supper during Worship . And as always, on Lord's Supper Sundays we collect a Special Love Offering after service that goes to our Benevolence Fund that directly helps people in our community.

Also - Children from K-5th Grade will NOT be in Worship with their parents this Sunday - they will go upstairs for FirstKIDS Children's Worship. They will be in Worship with their parents and guardians this month on April 21st for our Easter Celebration Service!

Be sure to stay after Worship for our FREE Monthly Church-Wide Lunch! The entire family is invited for fellowship and Ya Ya's Chicken and sides. Donations are gladly accepted.

And don't forget that on Church Lunch Sundays we ask that everyone bring an item from their pantry for our FBC Food Pantry Food Drive. Let's help feed our community as we gather to feed ourselves. Please bring your donations to the marked table in the Narthex.
