     Men of FSBC, we need YOU!
Hey guys, if you’re free this coming Saturday, May 9th at 1pm we could use your help! Because we’re celebrating this Mother’s Day at a distance, we’re looking for men with valid drivers licenses and reliable transportation to help deliver Mother’s Day gifts to the Moms of FSBC. If you’re free and willing to help out (the more the merrier) please let us know! You can email Pastor Mark ( letting him know you’re free and willing to help out! Thank you in advance!!
Check out this short video to catch the vision for becoming a light in your neighborhood!
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life.”

The Lord planted our church where we are to help our neighbors discover the light of life. So, we’re asking each member of our church to consider becoming a Light to their neighbors and living intentional pray-care-share lifestyles.

Becoming a Light is free and easy. You’ll receive a map and list of your closest neighbors, along with emails at the frequency of your choice to pray for your next five neighbors that day. When you get a chance, walk or drive by those homes as you pray for them.

To learn more about this opportunity visit the following link and watch the 2 minute video by Stephen Kendrick. When you are ready to get started, click the sign up button on the page.
