Monthly Events

Saturday Evening Worship, Concerts, & Films , Saturdays at 6:00 pm!

Saturday 7:00 pm weekly Worship and fellowship. Working on Sunday mornings? No problem. There is plenty of opportunity to lift praises to God in song and testimony on Saturday nights! We are inviting you to come, share, and join in in celebrating what our AWESOME GOD is doing in our lives. The Bible tells us we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, (see Heb. 10:25). Please make every opportunity to attend. Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus. Many in the community have said they cannot come on Sunday Mornings so this is your opportunity to Worship the King during the evening. We are here to serve the Lord and in doing that serve you! Remember John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
