CARD MINISTRY   When we receive a card…especially one through snail mail…it reminds us that someone cares. For a while cards have been available in the hymnal racks and on a shelf in the library foyer for your use in reaching out to say you care. Pick one up today…perhaps even one each week… and mail it to someone you have missed, someone who is ill or recuperating, or someone to whom you want to say thank you. Missy Belshe oversees this ministry; watch for her new ideas about how to reach out. For those of you who donate your extra cards, please keep them coming; they are a great help!

FBC 150th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION…2021!  We are hoping to get stories about members…both past and present to help us “tell our story.” Some of you have promised to share stories, and a few neat ones have come in, but we need more! Tell about something that just happened that will uplift or amuse, or tell about something you heard or remember from past years. For instance, Jeana Calloway-Hodson wrote about the impact Betty Chiles has had on her life as a young pastor’s wife. How the lights went out as Rev. Howard E. White was presenting flowers one Mother’s Day and Art Allen’s reaction was priceless! A collection envelope is located under the bulletin board in the library foyer.
