Christmas Eve Communion Candlelight Service 2015

Thursday, December 24     5:30 p.m.     Sanctuary

Arrive early for this tradition of candlelight and communion. We will close the Advent season with the singing of “Silent Night” while the Sanctuary is illuminated by candles and filled with the anticipation of Christmas Day.

We will be receiving a special offering at the Christmas Eve Service to help our church reach our budgetary commitments for 2015.

If every family would consider a special Christmas gift in addition to their regular gift, it would make a tremendous difference. We invite you to come to the Christmas Eve Service prepared to make a special Christmas gift.

Transportation Fund

FBC has voted to purchase a “used van” in the range of $24,000 – 30,000.  Currently memorials are going to this purchase.  We encourage you to make a donation to the Transportation Fund to help with this purchase.

Alternative Gift Fair 2013

Wednesday, November 13 – 4:30 p.m. -8:00 p.m. – Fellowship Hall

Christmas is a special season. This year instead of giving more “things” give a gift that will make a difference to service organizations. You will have the opportunity to honor a family member or friend with a gift to a local or international service group. You will receive a gift card for your honoree from the organization that you select.

We have set a minimum donation of $10 to get a gift card. This year’s participating organizations include:

  • Habitat for Humanity,
  • Davidson County Prison Ministry,
  • Cancer Services,
  • CBF Global Missions,
  • Martha Best Children’s Center Scholarship Fund,
  • NC Baptist Children’s Home,
  • FBC Assistance Fund.

You may also enjoy homemade cookies, cakes or candy.  If you enjoy baking pleased consider donating homemade items for the fair.  All profits will go to benefit local missions.  Family and friends would love to be honored with a gift to a local agency or one of the other gifts available.
