Next Live Event

As we have continued to monitor the daily Covid-19 infection rates in our immediate and surrounding communities, infections have continued to remain concerningly elevated. With the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, there is probable cause to believe that infections may not decline substantially in the next couple of weeks. For that reason, the leadership at FBC believes our next best date to consider as a possible return to in-person worship is Sunday, December 6, 2020. If infection rates subside and continue to go down in the weeks ahead, we will announce an actual return date. In the meantime, we want to thank you again for your prayers, continued support and encouragement. We are hopeful that (Lord willing!) we will soon return to some sense of normalcy … please join us in praying for that to become a reality.  For now, will be live-streaming all of our regular services, so please tune in and stay tuned in.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call the church office.  May God bless and keep you.

Seizing the Day

Sermon by Jeff Davenport
Series: Getting Things Done with God

Nehemiah 1:1–4 (Listen)

Report from Jerusalem

1:1 The words of Nehemiah the son of Hacaliah.

Now it happened in the month of Chislev, in the twentieth year, as I was in Susa the citadel, that Hanani, one of my brothers, came with certain men from Judah. And I asked them concerning the Jews who escaped, who had survived the exile, and concerning Jerusalem. And they said to me, “The remnant there in the province who had survived the exile is in great trouble and shame. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates are destroyed by fire.”

Nehemiah’s Prayer

As soon as I heard these words I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven.
