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.

"A Time Such As This" 07/12/2020

Sermon by Jeff Davenport

Esther 4:13–17 (Listen)

13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” 15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, 16 “Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa, and hold a fast on my behalf, and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.”1 17 Mordecai then went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him.
