Day of Giving 2020 – Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, FBCO will be handling our annual Day of Giving differently. Instead of a one day event and trying to accommodate such a large crowd, we are going to spread this event over several days so we can handle smaller groups of people coming in at a time.

Operation Christmas Child – We’re celebrating Christmas in July and requesting gifts in the form of school supplies, money for supplies and/or shipping, and prayer as this ministry continues to pack shoeboxes so children around the world can hear the good news that ‘Jesus loves them’. So far, we have 325 boxes packed on our way to 1000. Pick up a box(es) in the foyer to pack yourself or we will pack one for you for $25. Questions, call Pam Gardner 839-0150.
