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!

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!

See the recap below.

Associate Pastor Affirmation

A historic day of Celebration and Calling, March 19, 2017 at First Baptist Church, Lexington, NC  USA.  Simply wonderful, inspiring and providential.

The Christian life is not so much a destination as a journey. True worship is found when we experience God’s providence and faithfulness along the way. March 19th is a celebration of praise and joy as we affirm God’s leadership in our search for an Associate Minister. We welcome Meagan Smith as we join hands together in the great quest of building the Kingdom as we worship God, love each other, and serve the world.  Bonus:  It was a M&M Sunday!

The Blessing Bag Project

God’s goodness.

When a loved one is admitted into care at the Hinkle Hospice House, remembering to bring toiletries, journaling tools, even a magazine or puzzle books etc….may be the farthest from one’s mind. So why not make this one less thing that a patient or loved one has to remember by providing them a “gift of comfort and hope” in a bag, a Blessing Bag? Click this link to see more coverage about this project from Fox8.

12= the number of beds in the Hinkle Hospice House (HHH).
32= the average number of patients that are serviced monthly at HHH.
50-100= the number of blessing bags donated by March 1.

What does a “Blessing Bag” contain?
Travel-sized toiletries, a comb, a pen, a small notepad, and always a message of hope. (Contents may vary depending on donations.)

Activity Blessing Bags: a Sudoku, crossword, word search, or coloring book, a pen, colored pencils or crayons, and a message of hope.

How can you be a part of the “Blessing Bag Project”?
Donations of any of the following items for the bags will greatly be appreciated:
Travel-size lotion
Travel-size shampoo
Travel-size toothpaste
toothbrush
mini-notebooks
Sudoku books
Travel-size body wash or bar of soap
Travel-size conditioner
