CHUPPERS
Chuppers (our Church Supper) takes place on Wednesdays - the starting time for the meal is 5:15 with Bible Studies for all ages beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Plan on bringing your family out on Wednesday nights for a great meal, some delightful fellowship and diving into the Word of God.  As the old saying goes "Seven days without church makes one weak!"  Call the church office by Tuesday afternoon to make a reservation for the meal.  The cost is $3.00 per individual or $8.00 per one household family.   The meal this week will be Hamburger on Bun, Vegetable Soup, Pineapple and a variety of desserts.

NEW PRAYER GROUP MEETING
In light of the tremendous response we had to the prayer service held at FBC recently - and considering the many needs for prayer in our church, community and world - a new weekly prayer group will be forming Sunday, January 25th at 6:00 p.m. in the Cornerstone Room.  Everyone is welcome to attend.


BENEFIT FOR JONNY WADE
The FBC Mission Board will be hosting a benefit for Jonny Wade on Saturday, February 21st from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The menu will consist of Sloppy Joes/Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, Pickles, Chips, Dessert and Drinks.  The cost is $5 per person and is also available as carry-out.  Tickets can be purchased in the church office.


GREETING CARDS IN THE CHURCH OFFICE
We have a large selection of Dayspring greeting cards for sale in the church office. Each box is just $3.50 and most boxes contain 12 cards and envelopes.
