Our mid-week Bible Studies (and Chuppers - our Church Supper) are in full swing.  We are in the midst of a new year-long adult DVD study on "The Story" based on the best selling book by Randy Frazee that tells the stories of the Bible from beginning to end.  Of course, we have exciting programming for all ages as well.  Chuppers begins at 5:30 (cost for the meal is $3 per person or $8 per one household family) and Bible Studies at 6:00 - hope to see you there!  (Special Note:  If school has been called off on a Wednesday, there will be no Wednesday Night programming.)
The FBC Trustees have had installed a security system in the church.  It involves cameras and a button to be pushed at the East and West entrances.  Persons wishing to gain entrance to the church during office hours will be admitted through a buzzer system.  Push the button, wait for a response and then the door will be unlocked for you.
