Baccalaureate Service 2017

At each transition of life, we must be prepared for farewells and new beginnings. In every farewell, there is a legacy to gain. In every new beginning, there is a hope to transform. In all of life’s transition, there is a foundation of faith to provide stability and courage.

Happy Graduation, FBC Youth!

Thanks Sparky, for the photos!

Welcome Meagan Smith!

Our new Associate Minister, Meagan Smith, will begin her ministry with us the first week of July. Her first Sunday will be July 9th and we will celebrate communion followed by the Church Picnic.

Meagan will be involved in Vacation Bible School July 10-14 and she is going with our youth to Passport, July 17-22. We look forward to Meagan’s arrival next month.

TDCWL – Thank You

A message from Judy Lecroy (Co-Director of TDCWL):

I wish I had the vocabulary to sufficiently thank you for all your hard work today and preparation days for today. You are a special group of people—caring about the disadvantaged more than your own comfort and enjoyment. You sacrificed to help many. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love working with you! Thank you again.

May God richly bless you!

 

Easter Sunday 2017

Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!    He is Risen indeed!  Alleluia!  In the darkest moments of our lives, when fear and despair overwhelm us and  death drains us of all life and hope, an angel descends and rolls back the stone of doubt and despair.  When believing does not come easy and our fears outweigh our belief,  we hear the words:  “He is not here.  He is Risen!”  Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!  He is Risen indeed!  Alleluia!

GLAMA’s Palm Sunday March on Lexington

Tell the City of Lexington, Christ is coming!  This is the day the Lord has made!  We will rejoice and be glad in it.  Hosanna!  Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord.  Hosanna in the highest!

Today’s Palm Sunday Celebration was planned by the Greater Lexington Area Ministerial Association.  We are grateful to the City of Lexington, Davidson County Government, and the Lexington Police Department for their assistance.  Thank you to the Alive Praise Band for sharing their gifts with us.  Thank you to all the churches who enrich this community with love and grace and who made this celebration possible.

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!
