  • Open the Mobile App or visit www.longviewfbc.com . Select “Give.” Select the “One time Giving” option, and then on the drop-down menu select, “Designated-Staff Christmas Gift”.
  • Write “Staff Gift” in your check’s memo line and place it one of the offering boxes in the foyer.
  • Put cash in an envelope, write “Staff Gift” on the envelope, and place it in one of the offering boxes in the foyer.

LESSONS & CAROLS – A CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE
Plan to join us for our Christmas Eve Service at 6 pm on Thursday, December 24 in the Worship Center auditorium, or via live-stream for those who are joining us from home. The service video will also be available afterwards to watch or share with others later that night, or on Christmas Day, to help you focus on Christ. It is always a special time as we gather as a community of faith to reflect on the birth of the Lord Jesus and look forward to His coming again.
