Worship

By Victoria Bailey

A Word from the Pastor

Dear FBC Family,

What a day this is to come worship with brothers and sisters in Christ!  I pray you feel the JOY that comes from knowing Jesus.  I also pray you know one of the most burden- releasing, joy-giving, God-filled moments is when we confess sin and are offered forgiveness as well as when someone confesses sin to us and we are allowed to grant our forgiveness!  As the hymn says: “What can wash away my sin?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus!  What can make me whole again?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus!”  Hallelujah!  We don’t deserve forgiveness, but Jesus gives freely to all who repent and confess.  May we continue to allow confession, repentance, forgiveness, freedom, and joy to cover our congregation!

God is working in me and you,
