Maundy Thursday Service:  All are invited to a significant event on Thursday, April 2nd at 7:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.  Our annual service will center on a reenactment of the Last Supper.  Come on out and join us, Communion will be served and our Chancel Choir will sing a special anthem.
Easter Sunday:  Our  Easter worship service will be at 9:30 a.m. and will feature a special cantata written and directed by our pastor and choir director.  There will be no Sunday School on Easter or evening programming.

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.  NO WEDNESDAY NIGHT PROGRAMMING THIS WEEK DUE TO MAUNDY THURSDAY SERVICE.

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 has been formed and meets on Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Cornerstone Room.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

Do you have questions about what it means to be a Christian?  Are you a new believer still trying to figure things out?  Have you been a believer for a while but would like a refresher course on what it means to be a disciple?  If so, Pastor Brent Meyer is teaching a Seeker's Class on Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m.  Come join us!

The American Baptist Women will be sponsoring a Spring Luncheon on Thursday, April 16th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with a cost of $7.00.  The menu will be a variety of salads, hot turkey, a dinner roll and drinks and will be available in our Fellowship Hall.  Take outs will be available.  Tickets on sale in the Overflow Room on Sundays or at the door.

Saturday, May 2nd at 11:00 a.m., if you are a mother or if you are a daughter you are invited to the Mother Daughter Luncheon to be held in Fellowship Hall.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for girls ages 2 and under.  There will be fashion entertainment by Cato's and the menu will be broccoli cheddar soup, turkey croissant, pasta salad, chips, fruit cup and cupcake.  Tickets will be on sale in the Overflow Room on Sundays.
