A Word from Our Pastor

Dear FBC,

It is hard for me to believe that one year ago today I had just been admitted to the Covid wing of Baylor hospital in Dallas. Over the subsequent 11 days I had to fight to breathe and for my life. From there, as you remember, it took me a total of 50 days before I could make it back to the pulpit.

Today, I sing praise with you that God is mighty to save!! He heard our prayers, and He has restored me. As I preach today, it will be a testimony to God’s power and care for His people. It will also be a reminder to us of the power of prayer!!

Thank you so much for praying for me! And let’s never forget that HE IS THE WAYMAKER!

Deeply grateful,
Pastor Danny

Bible Studies

Prayer Meeting/Bible Study
Led by Brother Danny
Wed @ 6pm in the Choir Room


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?

Body Recal

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.

Church Life

We have started planning for the upcoming fiscal year. If you would like to give input or submit a recommendation, contact Jeff Fitzhugh.
