Salvation Army Christmas Angels

Happy November!  It’s that time of the year for the Angel Tree Program.  Last year, thanks to your generosity, the Salvation Army of Davidson County Angel Tree program was able to provide Christmas gifts to over 1,000 children.

The Angel Tree program provides new clothing and toys for children of families in need ages 0-12 years old in Davidson County.  Please consider adopting an angel again or for the first time this year.

How to Adopt an Angel:
1. Select an Angel or two from the table in the sanctuary and record your name and contact information on the sheet on the table. Each tag provides the Angel’s name, age, gender, clothing size, and wish list.

3. Purchase new, unused, unwrapped toys and clothing items that the angel has specified on the tag; don’t feel obligated to purchase everything on the tag. Place the items in a durable bag with the Angel tag inside the bag or affixed to the gift (s) so that the Salvation Army can identify where the items need to go.

5. Return your gifts to the stage in the Fellowship Hall by Sunday December 8.  Do NOT return them directly to the Salvation Army- they will pick them up at the church the next morning.

6. DONE!  You can feel great knowing that with your help children who otherwise might not have anything for Christmas will find gifts waiting under their tree. Thank you for all you do to help with this important ministry.

Operation Christmas Child, 2019.

Once again, it is time to collect items for Operation Christmas Child.
Boxes are available in the Fellowship Hall with instructions. Please
take note of items that are NOT to be included. Place the label on
the outside of the box and wrap box with a rubber band. Boxes
should be returned to the fellowship hall by Wednesday, November
13th. We need everyone to participate. Together we can make a
difference in the lives of children around the world by putting a smile
on their faces and a good feeling in our hearts knowing we took the
time to share with them the love of Jesus. Monetary donations are
also being accepted. Please contact Barbara Epley at 336-249-1331
for more information.
WORK DAY – An Operation Christmas Child work day has been
scheduled for Tuesday, December 5th from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. in

VBS 2019 Registration form

Lexington Senior High School Chorus

Listen to the performance here:  LSHS Chorus.  Chorus starts at 11:30 mark.

One of the best

As Ray would say:  “Oh My!”  Arguably, its one of the best anthems yet at FBC!  Listen in and judge for yourself.  At or around the 17:25 minute mark is the anthem.

And if that wasn’t enough, after all of the rain we have been having, the sunlight came through the Sanctuary to bless us with an excellent visual.

What’s your thoughts?  One of the best?

Thanks goes to the FBC Choir as well as the FBC Audio-Visual Team!

We are grateful for this special opportunity.
