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.

School Supply final update

Here’s the final update on FBC’s Back to School mission this year from Ray:

One picture shows 576 packs of paper! Another shows boxes of supplies ready for delivery to Foster Children.

Other pictures are of book bags and supplies.

We collected 510 book bags. We delivered 6 boxes of school supplies to Social Services for the Foster Children. They were thrilled and said it was more than we have ever given in the past.

We had between $2500 – $3000 donated to help us buy the supplies. This was combined with the generous donations of people who brought book bags and various supplies. While it is hard to estimate the value, the supplies and book bags that will be given away amount to at least $5,000.

We are grateful to our entire church family and others in the community who made contributions to this effort!

Thanks FBC!

God is good ……  all the time!
