Pastor Todd is posting weekly prayer prompts in the Midweek Moment. If you are not currently receiving this email post, but would like to, sign up at http://bit.ly/MidWeekMoment
  CLOSE COMMUNION
The summer schedule allows us the blessing of worshiping together in one service! However, it creates issues for folks trying to find seats. Please move to the center of the row when being seated, leaving aisle seats open. Fill in front rows first, leaving back rows for guests and those arriving after you.

July 30, will be a 5th Sunday Benevolence Offering. All cash and designated checks will go to care for those with needs in the FBC community.
