WORSHIP SERVICE: (10:30) There will be three “movements” to the service:

      CELEBRATION: for what the Lord has done and given FBC

(Children will be dismissed to Kid’s Church)

      CONFESSION: of what we need to humbly bring before Him

      COMMITMENT: to what we are trusting Him for as we move forward

For each of these sections, there will be:

  • A Scripture and worship music
  • Specific prayer examples in the bulletin to prompt these kinds of prayers in you
  • A designated time for personal prayer and public testimony and prayer:

Those who participate in person will need to be brief and speak from a microphone.

Those who are on-line can submit a prayer during the service that can be read.

This Sunday is the Solemn Assembly

We will be having a special worship service starting at 10:30 am to Celebrate, Confess and Commit to what the Lord is calling us to do as a church.  There will be Preschool Church and K-5th Kids Church during the worship service.  At noon we will have a pizza lunch in the Fellowship Hall & Gym and all are invited.  At 1 pm we will resume our Solemn assembly in person and via zoom.  I would like to hear from you if you plan to be at the church in person for the 1 pm final session and need childcare.  I am guessing that those who have younger children may need to be home to accommodate naps for your children and you may zoom in to the 1 pm gathering. It would be a great help to me to hear from you ASAP, so that I can get volunteers at the ready to take care any kids who plan to be in person during the 1 pm session.  Thanks for letting me know on such short notice.   (Email email hidden; JavaScript is required)
