A Word from Our Pastor
Good morning, FBC!
If today’s sermon was a NASCAR race, the checkered flag would be waving, because this morning’s sermon is the last lap in our on-going little series on Joseph. This brief series is called, “Joseph’s Road,” and we’ve seen Joseph take quite a ride! From speed bumps to potholes, to stop signs, to detours, we’ve seen Joseph go from being a teenager to being a grown man. Today, His trust in God is so great that’s it’s like his life is on cruise control.
Let’s learn more lessons from this BIG Old Testament figure…Joseph!
Proud to be your Pastor,

“THRIVING IN BABYLON”
These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they’re attacked on every front. It has all happened at warp speed, leaving many spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment?
Each week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we offer a class that emphasizes strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination. The class is led by Jimmie Buchanan, our local Body Recall expert.9 am in FLC.
