A “Meager Meal” on February 14th, 2018

February 14th is Valentine’s Day. It is also Ash Wednesday.

We will observe this most significant day with a “Meager Meal.” Reservations can be made as you normally do for Wednesday night meals. We will not charge for the meal but will ask for donations for the Dragonfly House.

The meal will consist of Pinto Beans, Greens, Onions, Pickles, and Cornbread. Following the meal we will have an intergenerational family discussion on love followed by a brief Ash Wednesday service.

Family Night Fall 2015 Premiere

Well, it was a great night……The congregation trickled in, the kids were anxious, most of the food was ready….and then it happened…..the BBQ Chicken was a no show. Arrgh! Phone calls were made to the vendor. The stalwart congregation, in the meantime enjoyed some meaningful fellowship…..for about 45 minutes or so. Finally, the Chicken arrived much to the delight of the hungry congregation.

After some good food and fellowship, Ryan Short provided an outstanding program geared toward all ages. Great job FBC!
