   Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® is an annual offering collected by believers around the world to support international missions. The offering was officially named in 1918 by Woman’s Missionary Union in honor of the missionary to China who urged churches to start it and give sacrificially.
This offering is unique from other mission offerings in that 100% of gifts provide for missionaries all over the world. It is a valuable part of Southern Baptists’ 175-year history of reaching the nations with the gospel and vital to reaching the vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshipping our Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 7:9).
Our goal this year is $2,000 in support of those serving around the world through the International Mission Board (IMB). Help us to reach our goal by using the special envelopes or by giving online through our FSBC website.

  Haiti Mission Team Trip

As a church family and body of believers, we would like to ask each of you to pray for our Haiti Mission Team as we embark on this journey.  Below is a prayer guide to assist each of us and a specific prayer request for each day.  While the Haiti Mission Team will be gone December 26th thru January 2nd, we have also added two additional days.  One day before we embark on this mission to help prepare our hearts and a day after we return to encourage and challenge us.  Each day has a focus, verses, and a small prayer to guide you.

Haiti Mission Team Prayer Guide
FSBC is excited that God led us to start a Broadcasting ministry many years ago. As we entered into this crazy year, the fact that we were already set up to livestream and record our services was a blessing.  The equipment that we use for this ministry is beginning to wear out and we are in the process of replacing it. Would you be willing to prayerfully consider helping us purchase the new equipment to keep this ministry running smoothly?
