Several FBC families will host neighborhood mini fairs this October 31. They need your help as they connect with neighbors and seek to shine the light of the Good News. You can help by praying and donating bags of individually wrapped candy (no peanuts or peanut butter) in one of the marked containers (one in each of the four campus buildings).

Resources for your neighborhood Trick-or-Treaters are in the foyer (Just add candy!)

New candidates for the Trustee board are Deacons: Matthew Simcox, Dan Roessner, and Eric Akin, and Elders: Ken Moore and Ken Fairweather.

Members were emailed information to fill out evaluation forms on each of these men. You may also access evaluation forms via The Hub or pick up a packet of forms at the desk in the foyer. Evaluations are due back Tuesday October 24th. Place completed packets in the basket at the ministry desk.
