Update: You have pledged $305,405 for our 3-year campaign. At this time $133,695 has come in. Of that, $3,460 has come in from persons who are supporting the project without a pledge. Thank you ever so much for supporting this project faithfully. It is amazing what can be done when we have a common project that will sustain our building, hopefully into the future. One of the first projects that will be addressed this year is the signage project that will create new exterior and interior signage for the church. You will begin to see that project at work as the summer progresses.

Registration for the July 22 Church Friends Lunch has reached capacity and is now closed. As a reminder for those registered, the lunch will be picnic-style and will take place after second service. Provided the weather cooperates, activities for kids will include an opportunity to play at the YWCA outdoor playground (parents must supervise their children), bubbles, and sidewalk chalk. We are looking for a few adults to help clean up after the meal. If you would be willing to help with this, please contact Julie Davis . Thanks!

Pillowcase opportunities abound in July. On July 9 at 5:30 we hosted the ladies from A Better Way. Our other opportunity is July 26 from 10:00–12:00 with our middle schoolers and 2:00–4:00 with our YWCA women. We hope FBC ladies can be available to coach another participant or be there to instruct ironing methods to guarantee a neat project. Contact Maryanne Bayer for more information.

Hi families! We are in need of volunteers to teach in the preschool classroom (both worship hours) during August so that our current teacher, Miss Jenny, can take a much-deserved summer break! We just need a handful of people to take 1 or 2 Sundays to make this happen. Another person will be scheduled with you, and lessons will be provided! This is a fun opportunity to maybe get out of your comfort zone and be a huge blessing to our little ones of FBC! Please contact Britney Sue or Colleen Massoth if you’re interested in helping out this summer. Thanks!

We are helping Hearts and Hands United collect school supplies! They will use these supplies to fill backpacks and hand them out to hundreds of children in our community. This is an amazing charity, and it directly impacts children’s lives as they start a new school year. Drop off your donations in the labeled box in the church office. (Some ideas are crayons, pencils, notebook paper, folders, pink erasers, and highlighters.) Thank you!!!
