Nine Lessons and Carols bulletin

Part 1: It was perfect.  The music, the songs, the choir, the lessons and most of all…..you!  The Sanctuary was flush with members and their guests to enjoy one of the FBC’s musical performances of the year:  Nine Lessons & Carols.

Christmas Eve Communion Candlelight Service 2015

Thursday, December 24     5:30 p.m.     Sanctuary

Arrive early for this tradition of candlelight and communion. We will close the Advent season with the singing of “Silent Night” while the Sanctuary is illuminated by candles and filled with the anticipation of Christmas Day.

We will be receiving a special offering at the Christmas Eve Service to help our church reach our budgetary commitments for 2015.

If every family would consider a special Christmas gift in addition to their regular gift, it would make a tremendous difference. We invite you to come to the Christmas Eve Service prepared to make a special Christmas gift.
