We Are Live!

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.

"The Claim of God's Word" 01/05/2020

Sermon by Jeff Davenport

Psalm 119:1–8 (Listen)

Your Word Is a Lamp to My Feet

Aleph

119:1   1 Blessed are those whose way is blameless,
    who walk in the law of the LORD!
  Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,
    who seek him with their whole heart,
  who also do no wrong,
    but walk in his ways!
  You have commanded your precepts
    to be kept diligently.
  Oh that my ways may be steadfast
    in keeping your statutes!
  Then I shall not be put to shame,
    having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.
  I will praise you with an upright heart,
    when I learn your righteous rules.2
  I will keep your statutes;
    do not utterly forsake me!
