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!

Sabbatical Journal. 2019

Joyce and I are having a wonderful Sabbatical.  It is providing the rest and renewal that we needed, but it has also been an amazing spiritual journey as God has surprised us in many ways.  I am writing a Sabbatical Journal that I have posted on my blog.  You can access my blog through our church website at www.fbclex.org (scroll down to the bottom of the page for the link) or directly at http://heyitsray.blogspot.com/

We are grateful for this special opportunity.
