We appreciate our Pastor and Brenda! And letís not forget our Youth Pastor and Robin. We are very fortunate to have all of them ministering at our church. As a little token of our appreciation, we have planned a time when we can all get together with them, share a meal, and just show them how much we love them. On Sunday night, October 23, at 6:00 p.m, we will have a soup, sandwich, and dessert meal at the activities building. Come on out, bring something good to eat, and letís have some great fellowship.
The sermon from September 25, "What Made Me What I Am," has been added to the Sermons 2016 page.

Our "Video of the Month" has been updated. In honor of Pastor Appreciation Month, we are featuring the song "Old Preacher Man" by Carroll Roberson. Pastor Bob is not "old" but we think he will enjoy the western theme of this song.
Pastor Bob and wife Brenda, and Youth and Music Minister Jonathan and wife Robin, our church appreciates all you do for us!
On October 30, we are going to have a special day emphasizing FWB International Missions. Jerry and Barbara Gibbs, former missionaries to France, will be with us for the entire day.

Our church has supported this good couple for many years and it will be great to reconnect with them.

We will soon need to begin deleting some of the sermons from 2013 and 2014 to free up some file space. If you have any which are favorites which you would like us to keep, please send the web administrator a private message through our guest book. Thank you.
Update 4/30/16: We have deleted several of the 2013 sermons and plan to work on 2014 soon.
Update 7/6/16: This project has been placed on hold until we are ready to go live with the new website. Our hosting company is changing to a new platform, and we hope our new site will be more accessible to everyone, especially mobile users. After the new site is up, we will start looking at the 2014 sermons.
