Trail Life USA and American Heritage Girls
This morning, during both services, Trail Life USA and American Heritage Girls are on the front lawn...come see why our troops are the best in the city! TL USA serves boys from K—SH and AHG serves girls ages 5—18. These fun filled, high adventure, Christian based programs will provide fun activities, challenge, teach character and citizenship and help boys and girls build their faith.

All Church/Family Gathering, 7:00pm Tonight
Bring family and friends to join us as we gather to praise God and hear how He is working in our lives. After the service we’ll hang out together on the lawn and enjoy hot dogs grilled by the Men’s Ministry and sno–cones from Josh’s Sno Shack.

Our Retreat at New Life Ranch includes baptisms on Sunday, August 31. If you have trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior and wish to walk in obedience and your newness of life, it would be our joy to help you show and tell others about your salvation and desire to follow Jesus. Call the church office this week if you wish to be baptized.

One Service on Sunday, August 31
Only the 8:30am service here at FBC. Nursery provided. 1st–12th grades will join their family for the service. Afterwards, all are invited to go to New Life Ranch and join the rest of our FBC family for baptisms and lunch!
