A Word From Our Pastor
Good morning, FBC Family!
It’s DiscipleNow Weekend! Thank you to all of our students for committing yourself to be DEVOTED to the Lord! Let’s stand with them!
I want to share 2 things with you today:
First, next Sunday I will begin a new sermon series that I am calling “Back to the Basics!” I encourage you to lock in with us in worship as we discuss the DNA of a healthy, growing church by examining Acts 2.
Second, we are diving back into missions in 2024,Our first mission trip will occur on Feb 7-10 (during CISD’s Winter Break), and we will head to South Texas to work with our partnering ministry, Hearts 4 Kids.The trip will include 10 people, and we are looking for: male & female / English or Spanish speakers / teens allowed. We will be doing children’s outreach and construction. Price is only $25, and sign-up will be in the Welcome Center starting today! Acts 1:8!
Thank you to Tim for preaching today!

D-Now 2024 was a huge success! We had a great weekend learning all about what it meant to be devoted to God fully in our lives. The students spread out across the city yesterday helping some of our members with yard work and it was great seeing them serve. Thank you for the prayers for this weekend. God did a great work!
