Important Weather Notice

 With the thought of safety of church members and in light of the impending winter weather, all services for Sunday, December 9th have been cancelled.

The cantata has been rescheduled for December 23rd.

 First Sunday in Advent - December 2nd

On the first Sunday of Advent, Miles and Miranda Boling read the Scripture and lit the first candle of the Advent Wreath.  When their daughter grabbed the microphone and wanted to participate, she stole the hearts of everyone present.  While watching their daughter we were reminded of scripture from the Gospel of Matthew Chapter 19, Verse 10: Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (NIV) 


Angel Tree for Nursing Home Residents

 The Rodgers Group has put up an Angel Tree in the sanctuary.  For the past two years we have given to families identified by the Salvation Army.  This year, however, our Angel Tree will have gifts for 15 residents at Siler City Center (formerly Genesis) who have no family. 
Anyone in our congregation wishing to help, may select an ornament from our tree and buy one gift for a resident. (You may take more than one ornament if you wish.) Gifts may be wrapped, but the ornament must be taped on the top of the wrapped gift so that we can sort them for distribution. All gifts may be brought to FBC and placed on the front pew on Sundays or dropped off at the church office.  The deadline for bringing your gifts is Sunday December 16th. If you would like for someone to shop for you, please contact a member of The Rodgers Group (contact the office for more information about this.)
The Rodgers Group will make sure that these gifts of love are delivered before Christmas. Thank you for helping us spread a little love and joy to those in need at Christmastime.

Thanksgiving Bounty 

This beautiful table  display in front of the alter on 11-11-18 was provided by Randy Johnson in memory of his parents, Herman and Betty Johnson.  The arrangement was designed and implemented by Gwen Holt. 


Movie Matinee on Sunday Afternoon 


A Sunday afternoon matinee was held on October 21 with a showing of "I Can Only Imagine." "I Can Only Imagine" is the inspiring and unknown true story of the group MercyMe's beloved song that serves as a gripping reminder of the power of true forgiveness.  The smell of popcorn permeated the building and by the time the movie was over more than one of those present had shed a tear or two.  If you haven't seen the movie and wish to see the changes that Jesus can make in a person's life and to see true forgiveness, then this is a movie for your. 

The movie story was setup by the music the choir sang at the morning worship. Music Director Randy Johnson led the choir along with soloist Angelynn Fox in the song "I Can Only Believe" written by Bart Millard of MercyMe.
