Sunday, February 28th

Hi Church!

This is the last Sunday in February and the second Sunday in Lent. Sunday evening is our 16th annual Walk through Black History Program. It received a wonderful write-up in this morning's TH.

This Sunday's text comes from the Gospel of John, chapter 14, verses 18-25. The subject is "I believe in the Holy Spirit." The Holy Spirit does more than give us spiritual gifts. We will learn more about the Spirit this coming Sunday morning.

During worship we will have a medley of gospel songs led by our own Peggy Jackson.

Church and Weather for Sunday, February 21, 2021

Hi Church,

In my 21 years as Pastor at FBC I have never had a winter like this one. On top of the COVID issues that we have been dealing with for close to a year, the last two weeks have given us crazy low temperatures that influenced us to cancel church. Now it looks like snow for tomorrow.

I don't want to cancel church again. So, assuming I will be able to get to church, we are going to have a service of some sort. We have planned one, but if certain key people are unable to make it, then the plan will have to change.

Your personal safety, however, is key. I don't think I have to say this, but, if you think it is better to stay home tomorrow, do so. If you think you need to attend worship, do so.

Remember that you also have the video sermon available through our website.

I will see you tomorrow! God willing!
