A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning, FBC!

We had a wonderful time on Wednesday at our annual, church-wide Thanksgiving Dinner! Thank you to everyone who attended and to all who worked together to organize the event. We packed the IOOF with almost 500 people.

Today, we have the privilege of eating together again; however, this time our meal is the Lord’s Supper. Please prepare your hearts for this sacred meal.

We do this in remembrance of Jesus whose body was broken and blood was shed to atone for our sins.

Give thanks for all He has done,
Pastor Danny
