A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning, FBC!

Today’s sermon is titled, “ON FIRE!”….So it’s appropriate to note that some sermons are like Tabasco sauce: they’re fiery and give you heartburn. At the end of today’s message, I hope you’ll consider this sermon to be a tabasco message. I hope you do have heartburn, but the good kind! – I want you to have a burning heart…a heart on fire for Jesus!

“O Lord, please light the fire that once burned bright and clear, replace the lamp of my first love, that burned with holy fear!”

Jesus is Lord,
Pastor Danny

Wednesday Night Bible Studies

Led by Pastor Danny | Wednesdays @ 6:00pm | Choir Room

Do you know Jesus? It’s one thing to know facts about him, but to experience his love, wisdom, and guidance in your life is what it means to follow him.

Led by Deadra Gage | Wednesday @ 6:00pm | FH Parlor

The Word in your heart allows you to discover who you are in Christ, what He has called you to do, and how He empowers you to live the Christian life.

Take the next step to grow into a disciple of Christ. In this class, we will teach you habits to help you develop into the image that God intended when He created you. Register in the Welcome Center.
