Palm Sunday

Hosanna, Christ enters our lives!  Blessings are here, yet haunting truths lurk in the shadows.  Death comes even to the most innocent and loving of humanity.  Celebration and sorrow intermingle in our world.

Easter Egg Hunt @ FBC

There were plenty of children!  Plenty of Easter Eggs.  An abundance of interest, fun and joy!  Great times to be at FBC!

Advent Recap 2016

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.

 

Christmas Shoeboxes

For many years, members of First Baptist Church have traveled to the Samaritan’s Purse distribution center to help organize the huge volume of filled shoe boxes that will be shipped all over the world to provide Christmas gifts for needy children.

This year, 2016, we had over 140 Shoeboxes donated by FBC.

Here’s the FBC group that traveled to Charlotte for this special occasion.  What a great group!  Thanks FBC!
