MBCC Fundraiser

Birthday Party for Jesus

Children celebrated Jesus’ birthday in the Fellowship Hall during the 2nd Sunday of Advent service in the Children’s Fellowhip Hall.

 

Fall Festival

Fun, fun and more fun!

The chili beans, slaw and cornbread were great!  There was plenty of candy.  The kids in costumes were awesome but perhaps, the most intriguing were the adults…..everybody had some fun!  Shoutout to FBC’s Youth!  Great job!

Operation Christmas Child 2016

Save this date: November 16, 2016.

Our church has participated in the Christmas Shoe Box collection since it began in operationchristmaschild-smallpng1993. When it first started we collected 200 plus boxes, but numbers have steadily declined in recent years, down to about 65 last year.

We can do better than that!

This year we want everyone to pack a shoe box (from the youngest to the oldest senior adult) boys, girls, men, and women. If you have physical limitations and are unable to shop, contact Barbara Epley at 336-2491331 and she will shop for you, bring the box to you, and help you pack it.

We need your help to collect the most shoe boxes ever!  We have ordered shoe boxes from Operation Christmas Child. They are now available for pickup.

Determine whether you wish to sponsor a boy or girl and choose the age group. Simply pack items that are age appropriate in a shoe box, include a $7.00 check payable to Samaritan’s Purse (covers shipping and handling). Attach a brochure, available in the church office or the Fellowship Hall. The final day for us to these in is Wednesday, November 16, 2016.

Pick up your box today and start shopping.

Deep Sea Discovery July 25 – 29

At Deep Sea Discovery VBS, children dive into God’s presence by delving deep
into His Word to see how He has been with His people every step of the way. Every
child will sail away each day saying “God is with me – wherever I go! He KNOWS me,
HEARS me, STRENGTHENS me, LOVES me, and SENDS me!” Hands-on service
projects and sea science will help kids experience a VBS adventure like no other!

We need leaders and volunteers for Bible School!  Please let Kelly Mitcham, Jim
Tate, or Ray know if you can help.

Christ is risen!

Alleluia!
