Church Family,

The Administrative Council/building reopening team’s mission statement.  Because we desire to make the love for our neighbor crystal clear, because we love our community of faith, because we will take into consideration the demographics of our congregation, we will seek to move forward by minimizing risks and trusting our congregation to act responsibly. For the foreseeable future, the administrative council/building reopening team will continue to monitor the local COVID 19 virus cases and effect before setting a date for in person sanctuary worship to resume.

There is no charge.  No tailgate?  Bring your lawn chairs to sit by your car.  Remember to wear masks when you’re not eating and to social distance!! Let’s pray for good weather but, in the event of rain, pick up your meals at the kitchen door in the back-parking lot to take home and enjoy!    Deacon Chair Sylvia Peay

Wednesday Night Meal Pick Up, 4:30-6 pm.  Please call or email the church office on the Monday before to reserve a meal. There are no standing reservations.

COC at FBC (Christian Outreach Center) Financial support of other feeding ministries in the area will continue while the COC at FBC is closed.

The church staff is back working from the office. Please call the office to reserve a meeting space during the week for your SS class, committee, or small group. When coming to the church office individually, please call and let the church staff know you are coming. Please refer to the most recent Messenger insert and the guidelines for facility entrance and use.

The past several Sunday’s messages gave direction to the discipleship of following Jesus and the gifts of grace through faith. My prayer for each of you is a growing faith in Jesus that leads to courage, consistency, confidence, and closeness. I miss you and I am praying for you. The upcoming July opportunities of Sunday morning prayer garden worship and the church picnic give us the chance to be together as a community of faith in a safe way for worship and fellowship. The live stream worship services give folks the opportunity to experience worship while not ready to attend an outside service in person.

Grace and peace,
Roy Dobyns
