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!
