YouTube premier

FBC did it!  We premiered our YouTube channel and first ever full-length livestream of our worship service on Easter!  It was an outstanding success!  At the height of the service, more than 135 people were tuned in….and if that’s not enough, more than 200 have already watched the Easter service; either live or at a later time.

Thank you FBC for making this a success!  Special production thanks goes to the A/V team: Richard Honeycutt, Trey Shoaf, Jim Honeycutt, Willie Edwards, Jim Skotthy, Whitney Brooks, Wes Richardson and Tobin Shepherd.

To watch the service, we’re making it as easy as possible with as few of clicks as possible.  On our webpage:, look either at the top, right or bottom middle for a YouTube icon, which looks like this:

Simply click on this icon on Sundays at or around 11:00 a.m. and your computer will forward you to our YouTube channel for viewing either a live service or an archived service.  It’s that easy!

For advanced users:  if you’re logged into your Gmail account and watching our YouTube channel, you can post live comments during the service which makes for social interaction while maintaining a safe social distancing.

12-09-2018 Cancelled Services

We always regret anytime we cannot meet for worship, especially at the season of Advent.   But we are under a Winter Storm Warning, law enforcement is advising not to travel Sunday, the Governor has issued a State of Emergency and we are looking at a potentially historic snowfall for December–we really don’t have a choice.

All services tomorrow plus all children’s and youth activities are cancelled.

Sunday morning at 11 a.m. you can listen to last year’s worship service from the Second Sunday of Advent on the radio.

If you have not turned in your Salvation Army Christmas Angel, please contact Kathy Hinkle.  Chances are the church offices will not open Monday and we need to coordinate a way to get your angels to the Army.

Don’t forget that we will be packing food boxes on Wednesday.  Trucks are needed at Food Lion (Talbert Blvd) at 9 a.m. and volunteers in the fellowship hall at 10 a.m.

Please take good care, stay warm, and be safe!
